We stopped here on our way south for one night. The staff/management are so friendly and went out of their way to help with whatever we needed. The rooms are fairly basic, but the kitchen is well stocked and the rooms are warm and comfy.

Cannot fault the friendly outgoing people who run the place,but it is in need of a refurbish. Some may think it's a bit far out of the main part of town ( but it only took us @ 20 minute easy,flat walk ) and to me it looked like part of the motel was used by longer term tenants and... More

We stayed there for a night on the way to Nelson. Was greeted warmly, but the room was way below par. bed was extremely uncomfortable, the pillows were hard and flat, and there were no towel rails or shelves in the bathroom. This motel needs a whole revamp, starting with the rooms.

First impressions count and we had a very friendly welcome. It was a bit too far to walk into the main shopping street, but we had a good choice for food and drinks not too far away for walking (and not drink driving) . It was a nice unit, clean, tidy, well appointed for a standard motel. Plunger coffee an... More

Lovely people but it was the cheapest accommodation so far on our New Zealand tour and that was what we got. Nothing wrong with the place but it lacked the finer points. If you are purely governed by price then it is fine for the money

I stayed in a studio unit recently and found it to be clean, tidy, comfortable with all the expected amenities. Bed was comfortable, shower good, and lovely views to the ranges could be enjoyed from seats at front of unit. Friendly reception from host and free wireless internet available. Met my needs for a one night stopover perfectly.

It was just an overnight stay on our way to Picton from Queenstown so we were after budget accommodation. The unit was clean and tidy the owners were very pleasant and it was adequate for our requirements.

It is adequate for a night but requires a good deal of updating with the decor and in general. Clean but in the bathroom, some very black mouldy type marks where cleaning in the past had been let go. Lots of trucks passing in the night but beds comfy. My biggest concern was the safety ofcooking and kitchen facilities...plugging in... More

I am indeed grateful to be greeted by Ivan, my fellow Chinese Malaysian. Heirtage Court Lodge was clean and cosy n very suitable for a family. Very near to the town n to the whale watching office. Tqvm for the warm hospitality from the landlord.
