      Very new hotel and all facilities are good as new”

      New, nice mountain view, near to nature park

      Aoraki Court Motel is the newest motel in Mount Cook, so everything in it is new and nice. Very comfortable room design and a very nice mountain view from the living room and one of bed room. The bath room is huge in our two bed room unit and even has a huge bath tub if you want to take a nice dip after a long hike. Can even fit two average size adults. While Aoraki Motel does not provide food catering, there are two cafe within 5 mins walk from the motel, so food is not a huge problem as well.

      Spotless ”

      Have been travelled to different countries and stayed at many hotels and B&B. I was so surprised that Aoraki Court Motel is spotless clean. And it provides comfortable bed, large space room and bathroom, car park is just right in front of your door. It may be a little expensive but rooms are not cheap without such spotless and comfortable hardwares elsewhere at Mount Cook.

      Amazing views, room and location”

      Can't fault anything about this motel. We got a 2 bedroom motel - it was spacious, clean, warm and high end. Had everything we needed. Would happily stay in this motel all day as it was comfortable and beautiful with amazing views of the mountains but there was too many activities / walks to be done within Mt Cook. If you want to cook, it is recommended you do your groceries before getting to Mt Cook as there are no shops here. There are a few cafes / restaurants. Friendly staff. Would highly recommend Aoraki Court motel. You won't be disappointed.

      It is a pleasure to stay at the Aoraki Court Mount Cook Village. The staff are nice and friendly. The room is spacious, clean, modern with spa, and heated bathroom floor. The huge glass sliding door gives you the beautiful view of the snow capped mountains, as well as letting a lot of light in the room. If you have a chance to stay in Mount Cook, this should be the only name to remember.

      Undoubtedly the best accommodation of my trip”

      Absolutely loved our stay at Aoraki Court Motel. The motel is conveniently located, very clean, spacious, has self-catering facilities, stunning views, and priced reasonably. I’d choose this over Hermitage without hesitation. We had been on the tail end of our 17-day travel in the South Island of NZ, and have had our fair share of stay in NZ’s motels and we absolutely loved Aoraki Court Motel. We were in Unit 20 and are so grateful for being allocated that Unit which offered such stunning views of the mountain. We could even stargaze at our balcony when dark. Loved it! Thanks, all at Aoraki Court Motel!

      We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment. Everything was high quality and beautiful. The apartment had everything we needed including full kitchen, large screen TV, comfy beds, large bathroom with spa, all the rooms were warm when the night turned cold. The view from the window of the majestic, snow capped mountain was just amazing. Mt Cook is really a magical location. The sky was filled with thousands of stars on a clear night. Would definitely return to Aoraki Court motel if we're ever back in the area. Highly recommended.

      Aoraki Court Motel is the best place you can get around Aoraki. You can ditch other hotels. The location, the view, the unit, the design, all cooking equipments that you couldn't ask for more. The check-in and check-out is hassle-free. The unit is very clean and spacious. The unit is also insulated which makes it warm despite the location at the base of the mountains. Thumbs up and definitely recommended place.

      A comfortable hotel, well maintained, very clean.”

      Comfortable bed, warm, pristine condition

      We were excited to reach Mt Cook area where fresh salmon were sold. From the hotel facilities it was mentioned availability of full cooking facilities. We took the opportunity to buy fresh salmon at the outlet and was looking forward to cook once we get to the hotel. Imagine how disappointed we were as there were restrictions on what kind of cookings permissible. It was indeed a shame as this was not disclosed on the hotel facilities in the web page. We can't complain on the location as Aoraki is a small town. The motel is within walking distance to The Heritage hotel where most activities in the area are organized. View from the motel is exhilarating. Unfortunately the day we were staying there the internet was not working for our block. We were not offered alternatives. On the whole the stay was satisfactory except for the few glitches.

      Mt cook is simply the best place to be in South Island”

      We totally loved Mt Cook, and what better way to spend your time in mt cook and in aroaki court motel. we did hooker valley trek and enjoy the scenarios and peaceful surroundings of mt cook. our accommodation has glass doors that allowed us to have views of the mountains. we love this place, really the highlight of the trip. stayed for 2 night and never regret a single bit. The facilities were great, they upgraded us to a 2 bedroom and it has good cooking facilities. Be sure not to cook any strong smelling or spicy food in the kitchen, and make sure to get your food supplies from lake tekapo before heading over here. easy task in my opinion. then enjoy watching sunrise and sunset in mt cook :)

      Comfort, Location, Great staff

      It was a group of 3 and we arrived around 1230pm. Great Sights dropped us off at YHA, directly opposite Aoraki Court Motel. They couldn't give us any early check in so we dropped our bags off and it was safely taken care of. It is a 10 minutes walk from Heritage Hotel where most of the activities are. Some bush trails are near the motel, but the most popular one (Hooker Valley trail) is not anywhere near us. You will have to walk to Heritage Hotel, then walk on for another 20 minutes where you will reach the base of the trail. So it takes more or less half an hour to reach the base of this popular trail. And another 3-4 hours to walk the trail. Love the motel cuz of its cleanliness. The room was big enough for 3 girls and the bathroom is pretty big!

      great location, friendly staff, clean room

      The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about things to do in the area. The hotel room is very large and clean. Bed was comfortable. Great location right in the heart of Mount Cook. Value is good. Bathroom is clean and large with plenty of hot water. Would recommend this place to a friend and would stay here again during my visit to Mount Cook.

      So much more than expected!”

      Everything, cleanliness & view

      This place was sooo much nicer than we expected. For a motel, it felt like we were staying in a classy hotel! Beautiful little apartment with good quality appliances, bed, bath and all brand new. Underfloor heating, STUNNING VIEW of mount cook and really friendly staff. Would definitely stay again.

      Nice and Comfortable”

      Big room, big bathroom and clean

      The motel is quite new. The room is big and clean, the bed is comfortable. The best is the bathroom, clean with spa pool. You can relax in the pool after a long drive. The view is beautiful, with Mount Cook and its snow-cap. You can park your car just outside the room. The only setback was you can not cook spicy food because of the smell. Recommended.

      Awsome room with an awesome view!”

      The room was much larger and cleaner than other motels we had stayed at during our trip. The price was less, though. The town is small enough where you can stay in Aoraki Court and still walk to The Hermitage if you want to do some of their tours. Great place!

      A wonderful stay at the hotel.”

      Cleanliness, view, location

      It was a marvelous experience at Aoraki Court Motel. The motel is located almost right in front of the snow capped mountains, the view from the living room window/sliding door was picturesque. The motel was extremely new and spacious. We were glad we chose this motel.
