Aoraki Court Aoraki/Mt Cook Village
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 April 2014

My partner and I recently stayed here for a night in an executive studio room. I asked for a room with unobstructed views of the mountains and that is exactly what we got, it was unit 26 down the bottom. The views were amazing, breathtaking! Particularly of Mt Sefton. So it's very worth asking for a room with a view, and if they've got it they'll give it to you.

The room itself was really nice, and seemed quite new. We were provided with a small bottle of milk upon arrival which was appreciated. We had a great nights sleep here and really enjoyed waking up to the view we were treated with. The bathroom floors are heated, and the heating in the room was ample though we only put it on very briefly as it wasn't cold in the room.

Aoraki/Mt Cook village is quite small so everything is very close and within walking distance. I would recommend this to anyone staying here.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view!

Had an excellent time, room was very modern and extremely warm though temperatures dipped to 2 deg outside. Beds were very comfy and bathroom with under floor heating. The kitchen in our room was well appointed though it had no oven it was more than adequate for the three nights we were there.

Room Tip: If you want quiet without tour buses, crowds but want a modern well appointed room this has to be th...

Hi peter682014. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It's wonderful to hear that you 'had an excellent time' and we're glad that you found your unit warm and comfortable. As you mention, our studio units do not include an oven. However, guests can opt to stay in a two bedroom unit which do contain an oven. We hope that you had a safe trip back up to the North Island and thanks again.

The Aoraki Court Motel has great rooms: spacious, new, clean and very comfortable. It was raining during our visit, but we happily spent time in the room. Luckily it cleared the next day, and the view towards Mt Cook from the room is fantastic.

We chose this motel because it's at ground level. It's our way of "feeling the earth" and the backyard are the fantastic views of the Mountains. The room is spacious and clean. The interior design is well thought. The lights are strategically placed too. I lost my phone charger, though the reception lend me a charger, but realized I could also charge my phone using the alarm clock. The staff were very friendly. Paul, the manager is like an Accuweather. He advised us that if we wanted to go hiking, we should do it before the next day cos the weather was gonna change. And indeed, he was right. Also advised us where to eat, ask for a map. Conveniently situated next to Chamois Bar and Grill, so we didn't need to use the kitchenette for cooking though it's provided. But we did use the microwave to heat up sandwiches. We extended our stay here from a day to two days. It's well worth it.

We stayed one night here and is a perfectly appointed motel for the three of us in our family that stayed in a studio room with a kingsize bed and one single for our daughter. It is new, spacious and very modern and superbly clean. It is close to everything in Mount Cook . The units have great heating and very insulated. Although the tariff is moderately more than average when compared to other motels , it is well worth the stay. We stayed in 8 motels around the South Island and this was definitely our number one pick!

Our 2 bedroom apartment was well appointed and very clean. We were impressed by the design as it did not need extra heating, even though we live in the sub tropics and get cold quite easily. A touch of luxury in a raw environment.
