Typical motel, aftrenoon sitting outside in the sun with neighbours was fine. Bad wifi, couldn't use it other than for sending a text email. Basic room, strong food smell/odour. Thin walls. Crampy shower. Was happy to,leave the next morning. Quiet outside, close to the shop amd restaurant.

Booking on the go but no stress involved! Lovely units away from traffic but very easy to locate the complex! Basic units but very comfortable, with all ammenities needed for either a long term or quick stay! 4 star rating only because I had to battle the sand flies but it is the west coast and bug spray is provided!

We got checked in fast no hassles. Wifi you need to pay for 3 nz dollars for 200 mb there is no mobile connection in Haast. We literally drived in at 5 ish sat outside our room on chairs provided overlooking the gardens it was lovely to end our very busy day in the sun with a glass of wine....

I stayed two nights at Aspiring Court Motel and I would recommend it to others. The room was bright and open and the bed was big and comfy. It was very clean and the staff were super helpful and friendly! It was nice having a kitchenette, fridge and microwave to cook meals right in the room. The motel is really...

We stayed one night in a family room. The people that run the place are very nice and the rate was reasonable. The room was very dated, though, and had a bad odor that was likely cooking-related. We only had 9 tv channels and you had to pay for wi-fi. If I'm in the area again I will try to...

Friendly staff. Convenient location. Room clean and comfortable, great shower. Wanted to stay at Fox or Franz but price point and availability was prohibitive. Haast is the next closest town to the Glaciers and price point was in our budget. Not much to do but we were only there for an overnight stop over.

I can't think of any reason to stay in Haast. This hotel is poor at best. Dark room. Separate hot and cold faucet in bathroom. Fan in bathroom noisy that didn't stop. Have to pay for wifi that doesn't work. The town has no cellular service so be ready to be isolated.

I loved this motel. New owners have just taken over and they are great. The rooms were very clean, needs new pillows though. Everything else was great. I would definitely stay here again. Very easy to walk around Haast from the motel.

This is a clean, quiet motel in a good location in this very small town. Parking is right out in front of the room. The bed was comfortable. We wanted a fan in the room, and the office provided one to us. We would readily stay here again if we were in Haast.

Our 6th accommodation during our 2 month NZ road trip. We stayed here for 3 nights in late-November. Overall, this was a very pleasant place to stay. We were greeted by a very friendly owner who was able to provide us a lovely and very spacious one-bedroom unit. There were two single beds in the room and one double +...
