Stayed here 2 nights with family. Extortionate price for shuttle bus from train station. Room was booked through Air B&B and they had the cheek to complain about breadcrumbs on the floor after we left- despite there being no dustpan and brush and no hoover! It was a very long walk into town with 2 little ones. The outdoor seating...

Had a great stay with my family at Heritage Court Motor Lodge. The host was very friendly and nice, we arrived late and she was waiting for us in our room and opened the door for us when we arrived. The hospitality is just excellent!

Amazing owner Don, super friendly and helpful! Best place to stay. Very clean and spacious 2 bedroom unit #1. Large flat screen TV, great kitchen with complimentary tea, coffee, hot chocolate and sugar. Everything my hubby and 2 year old son wanted.

We found the service exceptional and the room well in keeping with the price we paid. Everything was very clear and well presented. The only downside I can see would be to have a unit by the main road where trucks travel throughout the night. This wasnt the case with us though.

Good value for money motel. The owner is kind and provided good travelling advice. We will come back to this place again. The room has a bit of smell, but once you opened the windows, it is fine. This motel has a small playground, good for children.

My friend and I stayed here last night, arrived late and left early to do Whale Run Kaikoura. Very friendly and welcoming reception upon arrival, dated but beautifully clean and tidy and perfectly functional 2 bedroom unit. Excellent kitchenette, comfortable bed and awesome shower! Exactly what we needed at an affordable price (booked through AGODA). Would definitely stay again with...

We stumbled over this accommodation by accident and we are so glad we did! As soon as you arrive you receive a warm welcome by the host Don and his wife. They go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and nothing was too much trouble. My son and husband went fishing and Don immediately offered to...

Lovely warm rooms, nice and clean. Had everything you needed to prepare basic meals. Great shower! Has a child friendly atmosphere and a safe playground for the little ones. Very enjoyable stay, even better than last time. Very nice owners too, always a bonus.

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.
