Hi Jackie. Thank you for your lovely review. See you again. Cheers
Heated tile floors in the kitchen and bathroom, King Bed and a heat pump. Fantastic
Thanks Rahul for completing this review. Our units are nice and warm and retain their heat due to the extensive insulation we have used. Pleased to hear that you had an enjoyable stay with us. Safe travels.
A really lovely motel. My room was well appointed, modern, spacious and spotlessly clean with a comfy bed. They were very accommodating as I was travelling with a 12 week old kitten en route to my home in Papamoa. There'd been a very heavy frost overnight and they even hosed off my car before I left! A very pleasant stay with friendly hosts. I would recommend this motel to anyone passing through Taihape.
Thank you Deborah for your review. We hope the little companion arrived safely!
Excellent accomodation, clean, modern, spacious & comfortable. Great laundry facilities and when you have got grandchildren there is a nice area for them to play or kick a ball around. Will recommend to family & friends, thank you!
Thanks Renelda for your lovely review. The kids love playing on the rocks dont they? Safe travels.
Have stayed 3 times on a business trip when returning home to Wellington from Bay of Plenty. The rooms are spacious, tidy and modern. Great service.
Hi Josef. Thank you for your repeat business and for taking the time to write this review. It is much appreciated. Cheers.
Have stayed several times now and all first class. Appreciated accommodating our late arrival.
Hello David and Beverley. Thank you for taking the time to write this positive review, it is appreciated. Glad that you were well looked after by George and the team. Cheers
Excellent service, happy to accommodate our late checkin....would use them again highly recommend Aspen Court Taihape
Hi there Cathy, many thanks for your nice comments. We would love to see you again one day in the future. Cheers.
We stay frequently in this Motel as we travel a lot between Tauranga and Wellington and like to break the journey. This is the best motel we believe between the two cities and would be annoyed if we had to stay somewhere else!The rooms are very modern clean and spacious and akin to what you would expect in a 4 star city hotel.Brilliant.
Hi there Graham and Janet. Thank you very much for your review of our motel complex. It is lovely to hear from satisfied guests such as yourselves. We do hope you do not have to stay elsewhere when you are passing but some days we are full so it might pay to book in advance next time. Cheers.
We have stayed at Aspen Court numerous time and each time we have found the facilities very comfortable, clean and of the highest standard in all areas. Would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation to all travelers. Excellent.
Hello Glenice. Thank you very much for your review of our complex, we greatly appreciate hearing back from repeat customers. All the best and see you again soon.
Nice clean unit ..smoke detector needed new battery. Really nice management thanks for a great stay will stay again
Thanks Robynn for your review. I will get George to get that resolved ASAP. All the best. Cheers.
Awesome stay - excellent unit and facilities, easy booking procedures, great breakfast, definitely value for money. Highly recommended to others.
Thank you Deb for your review. Great stuff. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Thank you so much for an absolutely amazing stay. The rooms were spotless, the facilities amazing and the hosts so friendly. What an amazing place you have, if ever we in the area again we will certainly be back.
Thanks so much Kirsti for your lovely review. Safe travels back up to the Western BOP. Cheers.
Very impressed with the cleanliness & comfort abilities of the room, however was a bit disappointed with the location of the room selected for us as it wasn't fully booked out, but the room was right next to the train tracks & so was very loud when trains went past. Also on check out after informing the owner/manager of the faulty spa bath which was the main reason for choosing to stay at Aspen Court were told that yes they were aware of it as it has been playing up!
Hello Kristy, thank you for your review. My apologies for the spa bath, we have had a couple of our units not working as they should and have been replacing the motors. I am sorry that you could not use the jets but of course the bath would have still worked as it should have. In respect of the train line, that entire block backs onto the Main Trunk line. Whilst there are only a couple of trains every night, the noise generated can be a little disconcerting I agree. We have mitigated this by virtue of noise reducing glass and insulation but of course we cannot eliminate 100% of it. Next time you stay with us please do request a room between the main road and the railway line. I would suggest units 3, 4 and 5 and then units 23 through 26. Thank you.
Convenient, clean and comfortable

Thank you Shelley for taking the time to write these comments. It is great to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. All the best.

Always stay at Aspen when visiting Taihape. Have also booked for others overtime as well. Friendly staff, clean facilities and affordable.
Great review, thanks Keria. See you next time!
Great place, highly recommend! Would definately stay again!
Hi Jess, many thanks for your review. Safe travels.
This is our fourth time staying here while traveling up and down the country and our first time with our 1 year old. The rooms are always very clean and well maintained. The room we were given this time was huge and had all the facilities we needed. The bed was huge and very comfortable. It was probably best sleep I had all holiday. The only thing was the skylight in the bedroom, with no blackout feature like in the main room. It made the room very light and given it was summer our 1 year old woke up very early.
Thanks Damian for your review and continued custom, it is always great to hear from repeat customers. I see you stayed in Unit 15, our very large 1 bedroom unit. The skylight you mentioned was to bring more natural light into the bedoom as it suffers from no external windows. The downside is we cannot eliminate light completely and have tried all sorts of blinds, curtains etc which have all failed and look tacky hence why we leave it exposed. I am sorry if this caused an inconvenience with your 1 year old waking up too early. All the best.
We always stay here on our way South. It's a lovely motel and facilities are super. Friendly hosts and a beautiful setting complete with wonderful roses.Thank you again.
Hello Jocelyn. Thank you for your wonderful review of our property. Great to hear that you are a repeat customer and that you enjoy staying with us. All the best and we look forward to welcoming you again soon.
I have stayed at Aspen Court a couple of times, always a pleasure, surprised to see the rooms have had a subtle makeover with lovely fresh curtains, and duvets and devine big/long pillows!Always immaculate and clean, staff always a pleasure to deal with.
Hi Michelle, thanks a lot for your review.
We refurbished the original units July 2015, they came up well didn't they. Pleased to hear you like the pillows. See you again soon.
Very clean and comfortable, large rooms.
Hi Peter, thanks for this review. Cheers
Always try to stay @ Aspen Court when staying anywhere around the central plateau. My go-to place, always clean and tidy and welcoming, and very well appointed and spacious rooms.
Hi Jason, thanks for this. See you again soon hopefully.
Brilliant place to stay. Nice rooms and great hosts . This is the second time we have stayed there and highly recommend it to anyone else passing through as a good place for a over night stop or a weekend away 🙂
Hello Glen, thank you for your review. Great to hear you love staying with us. Cheers
Always stay at Aspen Court when passing, very comfortable bed cosy room and would highly recommend
Thank you Sharon for the great reccommendation. See you again soon.
On a cycle tour, I arrived wet and cold on my bike having completed 4 hours of riding in near freezing temps. Even though it was well before check in time I was warmly welcomed and quickly provided with a spa unit. Very obliging and friendly staff. Aspen Court is my motel of choice in Taihape.
Hello Alan and thank you for your review. You certainly are keen cycling round the country in all types of weather. You must have thought twice about leaving the following day! Safe travels and we look forward to seeing you again. Regards.
It is becoming a regular pattern, and a good one. Stop at the Aspen Court, lovely rooms, very tidy, and then down to Le Telephonic for a lovely meal! Great combo for Taihape.
Hi Sherry, thank you for the endorsement. Yes good food at Le Telefonique and a great sleep at Aspen Court Taihape.....what is there not to love? See you next time you are passing!
Pleasantly surprised with this Motel. Clean, comfortable and spacious. Excellent value for money. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others. God bless
Hello Koebi, thank you for your review. Pleased to hear your expectations were well and truly met. We look forward to seeing you again one day and thank you for reccommending us.

Spacious, and very clean rooms. Comfortable mattresses, good wifi, gracious hosts. Would recommend highly.
Hello Cheryl. Thank you for your review. Please do reccommend us to your freinds and family, we always appreciate referral business. Safe travels back to the US. All the best and many thanks.
We stay at Aspen Court regularly - its so convenient and comfortable. Its a great place to break a long journey. The units are always clean and fresh and the staff are helpful and friendly.
Thanks Dave & Sue for your review, we look forward to seeing you again soon. Cheers.
Arrived Friday arvo and it was pretty cold in Taihape; however once I switched the heat pump on the room was warm within minutes! For a single room it was quite spacious with a nice big double-bed. Clean, tidy with cows over the fence mooing me 'good morning' ahhh - awesome country welcome! No hesitation whatsoever recommending this motel to the weary traveller. Would definetly stay again!
Thanks Henry. Glad to hear you had a good experience with us and some of the Taihape locals over the fence. Thank you for your review.
Lovely motel - quiet, clean and spacious. Really worth the stop over and we will stay again.
Hi Judith, great to hear from you and we look forward to seeing you again....soon!
Awesome accommodation. Top accommodation. Reasonable price extremely clean tidy and modern
Hello Paul, thank you for your comments, we really appreciate them. All the best.
Wonderful stay . Wonderful people . Have rebooked for our next stay. I love that its quiet, warm, friendly and the late check out wasnt a problem 🙂 Thank you so much and we will see you again in November 🙂
Hello Jess, thanks for your review and great to hear that we will be seeing you again in November! Cheers
Brilliant place to stay, nice and quiet, beautiful rooms. Nice and friendly owners. Will be staying there again next time we are up that way.
Hello Glen, thank you for your nice positive comments. We look forward to seeing you again. Cheers.
Great place to stay. We always stay here when in Taihape for family occasions. The units are very spacious and the heat pump makes it very warm. The spa bath is lovely after a long drive or a for a bit of relaxation. One tiny thing is that the motel website states that each unit has kitchenette facilities including a hob (which is useful if you want to self cater like we did). We were disappointed that our unit did not have the hob as stated. However it is still the stand out place to stay when in Taihape!!
Hello Denise and thank you for your continued custom and of course your review.
You must have stayed in Unit 14....our only unit that does not have a hob. That is because the layout of the kitchen did not allow us to fit one in when we built the complex. In the future please request a different unit if you intend on cooking.
Thanks for staying with us and safe onward travels.
When heading south last week we stopped at the Aspen Court; on the return journey we stayed there again. This is becoming a habit (our fourth stay in total) and it's a happy habit to form. The units we have stayed in are always immaculate, comfortable and warm when they need to be. And the service is impressive; an example to demonstrate - I inadvertently left an item in the fridge on the way south and on the way north found that it had been saved for me. Thanks George.
Hi Peter. Thank you for taking the time to write these nice comments and also thank you for being such a loyal customer. It is always wonderful to hear of customers who keep coming back. We do hope we have changed peoples perceptions of Taihape and actually get people to amend their itineraries so that they can stay with us when heading north or south. See you again.
