This hotel is clean, very spacious and the staff are really friendly. We arrived at late in the night and were greeted with a smile and upgraded to a two bedroom room with spectacular views. When you wake up in the morning, you get to see the most beautiful colours of the sun rays bouncing off the mountain peaks.
The bathroom is very big and well stocked with toiletries. There is even a Jacuzzi bath.The kitchen is equipped with modern top of the line whilteware.
I would definitely recommend this place. Try the food next door in the backpackers, but go easy on ordering when you are in a group as the portions are huge.

Friendly staff, very clean, comfortable accommodation, lovely views: what else can you want?
The kitchen was well equipped and the unit was spacious. The position on the edge of the village is convenient for getting to the start of the best walks, either a short drive or a stroll across the fields to the campsite. The only thing I would say is that you should shop on your way to Aoraki if you are self-catering, as the groceries are limited. There are some eateries in the village, notably the Hermitage hotel. We were very lucky with the weather too, so our stay was very enjoyable.

Thank you hmalleston for taking the time to post this lovely review. Great to let people know there is no supermarket here in The Village. Our units a well equipped for cooking so yes bring those necessary items with you.

After several days of travelling & sleeping in our campervan we chose to stay in a spa bath unit whilst in the village. Aoraki Court was wonderfully clean, spacious (after the campervan it seemed huge) & warm. The view was brilliant (when we arrived). My partner loved the spa bath, however as I am 6 foot tall it was too short for me without laying on my side in the fetal position. Despite this I would certainly stay here again next time I visit the mountain.

Hi KiwiDragonfly it must have been a lovely change from staying in your campervan to enjoy the comforts this complex has to offer. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and maybe next time it will be for longer.

What a great find this place was. We stayed just the one night on our way to christchurch. Amazing views but unfortunately not long after we arrived Cookie threw a massive tantrum. The thunder and lightning show he put on was still pretty spectacular though and we will definitely go back (hopefully when he's in a better mood!) the accommodation itself was lovely, modern and spacious room with all the facilities you would need for a short or long term stay. We made use of the spa bath which was a huge bonus. This motel prides itself on its high level of cleanliness and it definitely shows. Affordable and comfortable accommodation, you'd be crazy to stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: We had a great view of from room 20.

Hello GTMT and thank you for your endless stream of lovely comments. You are right in saying the weather can change and it sure gives you a spectacular showing of thunder and lightening. We often get people just coming up to stay to see this from the comforts of our units. Thank you again.

We stayed in a two bedroom unit at the rear of the property with breathtaking views of the mountains. The unit was spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and most importantly the beds were extremely comfortable. The units are steam cleaned without chemicals which is great for people with allergies. Would be happy to come back and stay here again.
