“Would loved to have stayed longer.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

Arrived late at night to find a modern beautifully decorated spacious unit
After a great nighs sleep we reluctantly left early the next morning
We will return and allow ourselves time to relax
The location provides easy access either north or south. Walking to town should only take 10 minutes. x

A very clean and tidy Motel that had a great bed for a great sleep. Well appointed and would consider again, however, the main trunk line (Rail) is very close by and the odd train can be a bit noisy! Very helpful and friendly manager and able to assist with guest parking (a boat) and breakfast suggestions for the following morning. Great.

We had a big room at the back with a lovely view over looking the sea it had a balcony with table and chairs. There was a field in front with some sheep . The room was very clean and had free wi fi. The only thing was we were unable to get the spa shower to work. But using it as an ordinary shower was fine. There was an out side communal area with a BBQ . We found this motel very convienant , clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a kings size bed that was very comfortable and we slept well.

Room Tip: A room at the back has a sea view no 21 is more private

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Aspen Motel . The reception staff were always warm, friendly and helpful, and the room was clean and spacious. There was outdoor eating space, including a communal BBQ. It is slightly out of town but very close to a good supermarket. We only stayed one night and we were very lucky with the weather. We would recommend this Motel.

The reason for our visit to Kaikoura was the same that many visit this lovely area of NZ; to see the whales. Because of the uncertainties of the weather world wide, we chose to stay for three days to give us a better chance. Aspen Court was our chosen stay having read many reviews of available accommodation. We knew in advance about the railway line and being close to SH1. Firstly the one train in the night could be heard, but was not a real problem, and even if it had been, we made that choice and is out of control of the motel. There was no detectable noise from the SH1. So if you do your research before you book I see no point in complaining to the hosts of this motel about rail noise. Many Motels in the area are close to the rail line. If some neighbour decides to use a chainsaw on logs during the day as happened during our stay, that is tough and the hosts of the hotel cannot be held responsible. Personably, I found the hosts Peter and Pam to be lovely folk and the accommodation excellent in all respects and would not hesitate to stay here again should we revisit Kaikoura. Yes we went on the whale watch and had a great day.

Very clean spacious room with a comfortable large bed.Very modern bathroom with trendy shower cubicle offering various ways to shower. Opted to be away from the road for quietness but my wife was woken 3 or 4 times in the early hours by the train(presumably goods). Pity the staff didnt warn us about trains coming through at night.Staff were friendly and helpful apart from the train issue. marked down because of the trains, next time would stay near the road. only other fault is no air con or fans, very warm at night and a/c really would have helped.

Room Tip: stay in a room by the road it will be much quieter
