Wonderfully spacious and clean accommodation. The kitchenette provided everything we could possibly need. We particularly appreciated the space for our luggage as soon as we walked through the door. The location too was excellent and a short distance from a superb restaurant and deli - Le Café Téléphonique, can highly recommend!

by Carol Taylor on Aspen Court Taihape
Town / Country: Toowoomba

Great location and very friendly greeting. Helpful at reception. The first night I couldn’t sleep because of the highway noise- but after moving had a perfect nights sleep. I will return to Aspen Court Taihape when again in NZ.

Thanks Carol for this review. I am not going to sugercoat the road does exist. But we have tried as much as we can to minimise it.....increased insulation both ceiling and wall, sound stop windows (double glazed as well), thicker walls. But some of the noise still gets through. Glad to hear that you had a great sleep the 2nd night. All the best.

by Ian Smith on Aspen Court Taihape
Town / Country: U.K.

Great place, spotless, modern, good laundry facilities. Lots of space. Helpful hosts. Absolutely no problems, would highly recommend. Only slight niggle was the wear on the sofa although that too was perfectly clean.

Thanks Ian and yes we are looking to recover those sofas. Cheers

Thank you Angela for this review. Cheers

Town / Country: BOP, NZ

Myself and 3 friends stayed at your motel for 2 nights in late January. The 2-bedroom unit was perfect: spotlessly clean and spacious. Very comfortable beds. Ken who checked us in could not have been more helpful. Would definitely recommend to others and happily stay again.

Thanks David for this review. Great to hear that Ken looked after you while you were staying with us. Many thanks and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

by Rachel on Aspen Court Taihape

Have stayed here a few times and that is because the units are clean spacious and comfortable. Had to change arrival dates and there was no problem. Easy check in and checkout. Taihape town a few minutes drive down the road.

Hi there Maria, thanks for your review. Glad to hear the booking process went smoothly. Regards.

by Margaret Cahill on Aspen Court Taihape
Town / Country: Christchurch

As always really enjoyed stay, excellent room, clean, well equipped, and good comfortable beds. Parking right outside, always stay here when traveling north. Really good value for money.We had tried to book a spa room, but were told they were all taken, so didn't expect, but hoped one just might have become available- it was my birthday and it would have been a nice treat:) When we arrived just on 9pm we went to our room and Derek said- it's got a spa! We were really pleased and after eating we ran the bath and got in- not working........:( Quite a disappointment. We hadn't booked for a spa, so wouldn't complain, however, it probably would have been more appropriate to forewarn us it didn't work? However, we will be back, you do a great job. Thanks Margaret

Hello there Margaret and firstly I would like to express my apologies at the fluctuation of emotions that you no doubt went through. We have been experiencing issues with the Spa Bath pump motors in some of our units and have come to a resolution whereby these need to be replaced. We now have the parts but are waiting on our Sparky to get the job done. It will be resolved soon. Please do mention this next time you stay with us and George will look after you. Many thanks.

by Jackie and Stuart on Aspen Court Taihape

Thank you - We have never stayed in Taihape before but I'm pleased to say - it was a wonderful stay at the Aspen Court Motel. We only had a one night stopover due to a long drive but were pleasantly surprised by the immaculate and spacious room. We received a friendly greeting, simple check in and check out process and comfortable nights stay. We will no doubt be back in the future. Excellent pillows too! Thank you.

Hello there Jackie and Stuart. Thanks for your lovely review. Great to see that you enjoyed your time with us, even if it were not long enough. We will still be here next time you are passing! Regards.

by Robert and Amanda on Aspen Court Taihape
Town / Country: Makarau

We have recalled Taihape “the romance capital of NZ!” After our arrival at Aspen Court I proposed to my best friend at the “gumboot” just down the road...FYI she said yes, maybe it was the spa bath maybe it was the nice accomodation but what ever it was, we’ll be back. Thank you

That is great to hear Robert and well done mate. It sounds as though you had a great time in Taihape so yes you both most definetly will need to come back.

by Peter & Jenny Christier on Aspen Court Taihape
Town / Country: Ohope

After driving from Ohope to Palmerston North then back to Taihape on the same day it was so nice to spend the night at the Aspen Court, the easy friendly check-in along with the well-appointed unit, the bed was very comfortable. We have stayed at the Aspen on several occasions and will be back.

That is a big drive Peter/Jenny! Thanks for the review and we do hope you had a relaxing stay with us. See you again.

Yep, definitely a great place to stay, and will make sure they stay top of our list for Taihape accommodation for the rest of the office as well.

Thanks for this recommendation Adam. Cheers

Town / Country: Wellington

A great place to stay - clean, warm, comfortable and with a happy, friendly welcome. We really appreciated the flexibility around our arrival date and time and will definitely be back. Our preschoolers loved the enormous spa bath and keep asking when we can get a bath that big!

Ha, great comments thanks Megan. No need to buy a spa bath, just keep staying with us and that will keep the little tackers happy. Cheers

Town / Country: Wellington

Clean, warm and comfortable room. Thank you for leaving light and heater on for our late arrival. Would highly recommend and happily stay again.

Hello there Nat. Thank you for your nice words about our complex. We would love to see you with us again. Cheers

I've just completed a thousand cage tour of the North Island and found the Aspen the best value for money by a country mile!

Great to hear that we compare favourably with our opposition. All the best and many thanks Peter.

by Justin Oostervren on Aspen Court Taihape
Town / Country: Hamilton, New Zealand

Wonderful accomodation with oddles of space, and a spa bath which always helps in Winter. Staying with a train lover as well, could we ask for more?

Hi Justin, did you see a train or two passing by the room? Hopefully they did not affect your sleep. Thanks for the nice review.

by Guy Beatson on Aspen Court Taihape
Town / Country: Wellington New Zealand

Excellent and responsive service when I booked at the last minute for a place to stay going to the mountain. Arrived late and left early, but everything was there and ready. Great room, nice and warm and comfortable bed.

Such top people well done to you guys, see you on the next trip.cheers Mike and Lea

Town / Country: Tauranga

Good size rooms and well looked after. Very good for an overnight stay. The trains were a bit noisy but I guess it is important to keep NZ Rail going.

Thanks Peter for your review. We have tried to mitigate all road noise and train noise with double glazed windows, noise reducing insulation in the ceilings and walls and thicker exterior cladding materials. However those pesky diesel trains pass by so slow sometimes and can be quite noisy. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your time with us. Regards.

by Foleys Transport 2014 Ltd on Aspen Court Taihape

Nice clean spacious rooms with really comfy beds! Great hosts too.

I loved my stay at the aspen, the dude who owned it was awesome, friendly, very welcoming & my son liked him heaps oh & the cat Charlie lol

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.

by Deborah on Aspen Court Taihape
Town / Country: Papamoa Beach

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!
