I love Kaikoura and this was a return visit for me, but the first time for my wife. The previous visit for me was in a YHA, so this definitely represented a move up in the world!
Aspen Court was a lovely place to stay. It was our first stop on the South Island, having picked up a hire car in Picton and driven down the North East coast down highway 1, stopping off at a winery for lunch.
Parking: Ample parking at the front of the motel.
Check in: No problems.
Room: Really impressed. It was our first motel and to have the mod cons was great: kettle, fridge, microwave. We were able to make some packed lunches for the whale watching trip the next day. The magic shower was very impressive, even if I didn't use all of its functions (it wasn't for lack of trying!)
Service: Friendly and relaxed. We had an unsuccessful trip whale watching, but the guys kept hold of our luggage and were easy to talk to.
Location: A little out of town, 15 minutes walk to a good restaurant.
Overall, I'd recommend Aspen Court and would love to come back again.
