Heritage Court Motor Lodge

Reviewed 20 February 2014 via mobile

Away from the town centre but near enough for all facilities with supermarkets and restaurants to hand- clean and with all facilities to hand with hosts more than willing to help- this base would suit any travelling on the go

The unit was well presented and equipped and suitably comfortable for our needs. Our only gripe was the proximity to the road (State Highway 1) and railway line. It is also not as easy to get to the beach as suggested and is also a very long walk from town. We knew of its position in advance as it is made this clear on their website, but we failed to appreciate how many heavy lorries (and a few trains) would pass by during the night. If you're a good sleeper, then this is a good place to stay, but if you are a light sleeper like us, then you won't get much sleep at all.

Room Tip: Ask for a room furthest from the road.

We loved the managers, very friendly and welcoming, loved the view of the mountains, loved the kids play area. The rooms were a little small but the facilities top notch. the grounds are lovely but it is a little way from the main part of Kaikoura. It is on the highway however noise wasn't an issue.

The motel was OK but the plug socket in the bedroom had seen better days and did not work so therefore the bedside lights did not. Cleaning in detail needed attention especially around the skirting boards! Helpful and pleasant staff.

Couldn't ask for more for the price. Friendly, helpful staff and clean well presented accommodation. A quite beautiful view of the mountains from the back windows and deck. Close enough to town to be convenient but just far enough to enjoy the serenity of the surroundings.

Room Tip: Pay the extra $10 or so for the mountain views.

The motel was indeed very clean and everything you needed was there. Plenty of towels for the three of us and I found the manager very nice and helpful. We only stayed 2 nights but would certainly stay there again when going back to Kaikoura.

We were looking for a clean and inexpensive motel in Kaikoura but could
not find one when we asked at the I-site building. we drove along the road going out of town and found a perfect one in the Colonial Motel. the
motel had changed hands a short time before and was having an upgrade but it was very clean and much cheaper than we expected. The
lady in charge was very nice and helpfull. Would reccommend it .
