“Great Place to Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

Super nice room, very clean, comfy bed and space to store luggage, and all the modern conveniences with big windows to view the mountains.. Good hospitality and helpful suggestions for our visit to Mt. Cook. The only disappointment - never quite clearing clouds.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a viw towards the mountains.

Had a wonderful experience staying in Aoroki Court Motel. The room is spacious and clean with heated bathrooms. Clean towels and toiletries set provided. Great view of the mountains. It was one of the best motels I stayed in the South Island.

This really sets the standard for motels! The units are very large, clean, and have everything you could possibly need. I was surprised at the spa tub in the bathroom. Views of Mt. Sefton are wonderful and our couch was positioned in the perfect place for viewing the mountain. The countertop in the kitchen is very large and made it easy to prepare meals. It is close to all the trailheads and walking distance to everything in the village.

I noticed the sign now says, "Luxury Apartments" and I think this better describes the accommodation. I would highly recommend this place to a friend.

My wife and I stayed here around one month ago. It was spacious, comfortable, with beautiful views of the surrounding area, in a beautiful part of the world. We only stayed for one night, but really appreciated our stay. Everything was spotlessly clean, and the jacuzzi bath was fantastic! I would recommend staying here over the Hermitage (which we also visited, and seemed very nice) - this place seems to be quieter, with much more space to rattle around in within the apartments themselves. The view from the lounge windows was ridiculously good. Thanks for a great stay!

Room Tip: All the rooms seemed great from the outside.

The pickings are slim at the isolated Mount Cook Village, but don't think you need to stay at the Hermitage for a quality experience or view. These ultra modern and newer ground level apartments are very comfortable, clean, and some have unobstructed mountain views. While we were lucky with the weather, which may have enhanced our experience (clear views are exceptional and special). We loved the setting in unit 26, even though near the road that has very little traffic. The only negative was the somewhat unfriendly and brusk woman who checked us in who accused me of complaining before seeing the unit even though I made a point to her that I was not complaining when I was told the unit was near the road. She also gives out only 200 mb of wifi data, and I asked her what if I ran out. She said something about how we could negotiate something if that happened. Luckily, I did not run out. Despite her somewhat off-putting attitude, I loved this place and recommend it as the best choice in this remote location.

Room Tip: Get a room in the 20's for a great view.

Hello RockiesExpert. Thank your for taking the time to write a review. We were happy to accommodate your request for an unobstructed view so we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your unit. We are sorry that you found our usually welcoming staff member unfriendly on this occasion. Generally we find that for normal usage (checking emails, web browsing etc.), 200mb is plenty for our guests and for those staying for more than one night, we are happy to offer a second complimentary voucher. Despite these setbacks, we hope that you enjoyed your time in the Mount Cook National Park and thank you for recommending our complex.

It was a pleasure to stay at this motel which we found to have a very comfortable room and all the amenities that one could expect. The restaurants and shop were located within reasonable walking distance and the laundry facilities were spot on.
The view in the morning from the main window in the room was superb looking up to Mount Cook.
We would certainly stay again when in the area.

Room Tip: ask for a room in the block farthest from reception to get the good views

This new motel provides excellent accommodation against the beautiful backdrop of the mountains around Mount Cook village . We had an Executive studio which gave us a large sleeping area, a reasonable kitchen area (a two ring hot plate and a microwave oven with good kitchen utensils) and a large bathroom . All very clean and modern. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Easy access to the walking paths from ten village. Wonderfully quiet accommodation for a break in the mountains.
