“a pleasure to stay here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

The room was modern, attractively furnished, clean, comfortable, and spacious. The bathroom too was all of the above, quality tiles and fittings etc. And of course the view of Mount Sefton from our room was awe inspiring. Others have commented on the 'expensive price', but given the remote location and the quality of the accommodation, I think it was value for money.

We stayed at Aoraki Court for two nights. It has everything in it that you could desire. I loved the shower that is enclosed so the mirror in the bathroom doesn't get misty. Huge master bedroom with spectacular views. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Great views. Unbelievable!

Clean, Modern, Roomy, & fully equipped kitchen wear. Nice view from our room. Close to the Mt Cook. Everything exceeded our expectations. The room is maintained in a very good condition. Will definitely refer it to my friends.

A beautiful very new and modern room, good kitchen facilities, perfect for what we wanted for after long days of tramping. But because it is only one of a few places to stay at Mt Cook Village, it was the most expensive of any places we have stayed including the Auckland Grand Hotel. It would have been nice to have some patio furniture on the nice patio of our room.
But it was worth the extra cost rather than driving back and forth to Twizel
Will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: ask for a corner room in building furthest from office to get the best view of mountain. Also bring...

Hi Charlie499270,

Thank you for taking your time to write such a kind review, we are very pleased you enjoyed your stay here.
Regarding the patio, the reason we do not have outdoor furniture is because we have extremely high winds which will blow anything and everything away! But we encourage our guests to take onto the patio the chairs we have inside the room as it is a nice place to admirer the view from.
We hope you will try this next time if you are ever in the area. Thanks again, regards.

The motel is newly built and finished and decorated to a high standard. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable, and had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. The window perfectly framed the view of snow-capped Mt Sefton. It is just a few minutes walk to the DOC visitor centre and Sir Edmund Hilary Centre, and there are many walks from there, or within a few minutes' drive.
