Called in as driving past and needed a motel, reception was friendly, super helpful of local tips and photography opportunity, loved the baby seals at the waterfall, something I would have missed if it was not recommended, Great knowledge of places to eat, and get real coffee. Room clean, tidy, spacious, Bed extremely comfortable, views of sea and mountains, quiet, WiFi, and spa shower. Would recommend, pity I did not have longer to enjoy the motel and region, Next time

My partner and I have stayed at the Aspen Court numerous times. Every time we arrive the owner is very welcoming, takes time to chat with us and provides information on nearby restaurants. Our room was clean and tidy to a high standard, and as a bonus we had a view of the Kaikoura mountains. Bathroom was good, enjoyed the underfloor heating. I would recommend this motel to family and friends. We will definately be returning for another stay.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms facing towards the sea.

Found our room to be perfectly clean and comfortable. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Some restaurants and takeaway food available nearby. Handy to have a supermarket close by. Highly recommended.

We stayed 3 nights in the apartment, and were very happy. Our room was spacious, clean, comfortable, warm and nicely decorated. Bathroom good and good quality linens and towels. Friendly and good advice at front desk. Wi-fi a bit unstable, and limited to two devices. 

The motel is a bit outside town. We had a car so it was no problem, but if you don't I recommend staying closer to town. Also if you're a light sleeper bring your earplugs. Both trains and car traffic can be loud, even during the night.

I know I have reviewed the Aspen Court Motel before but that was a couple of years ago. The very high standard of ‘motelship’ is still there. The rooms are excellent with large comfortable beds, spotlessly clean and very quiet. We stayed twice (2 x 1 night) in a couple of weeks as we wanted to go whale-watching with family and the first time the whale-watching was cancelled due to bad weather. We were welcomed back the following week like regulars. Our hosts were friendly and helpful as we have found before.

An excellent place to stay.

We really liked this motel. The owners were very helpful and easy to deal with. The complex is modern, well designed and very clean and tidy. The rooms are generous and the king size bed in our room was luxurious. Valuewise it compared very well with other options in Kaikoura which were smaller, older and/or more expensive by comparison.

We chose a room with the shower cubicle which was great - it's a pity they will be removing them soon.

Will definitely stay here again when in Kaikoura.

Room Tip: We liked room 21. Furthest from road noise with views over ocean and mountains. It does have the rai...

Everything was great when we stayed here. We booked the Cosy Studio but we were upgraded to a suite when we arrived. The room was large and the kitchen was well equipped. There was also a heated floor in the bathroom. There was a BBQ grill in the courtyard which we decided to use - and the staff was very helpful - even providing the BBQ tools. It is conveniently located in Kaikoura.
