First time staying at Aspen Court and we’ll definitely be returning. We arrived late evening and the room was warmed ready for us. Good sized, clean and comfortable rooms and my daughter loved the spa bath. Taihape is a great place to stop on our way to the ski fields and Aspen Court is the perfect accommodation, quiet and spacious rooms. Would definitely recommend to others.

Thanks a lot Denise. We first opened our doors in Sep 2002 so I am sure you must have driven past us many times. Great to hear that you had a pleasurable visit, we look forward to seeing you again soon.

I have stayed here four times and every time my expectations were exceeded! Lovely warm, exceptionally clean rooms and very comfortable. Thank you for keeping your motel in such an excellent condition! I definitely recommend this motel to others and will always choose to stay here again.

Thanks so much Junet for taking the time to write these lovely words. We love repeat guests such as yourself, that tells us that we are doing something right!

I have stayed at Aspen Court twice now. Both times were excellent - the units are very clean and have everything needed. On the second visit, we were running late due to traffic accident on the motorway, and the owners were helpful with our late arrival. Would definitely recommend to others and stay again ourselves!

Hi Wendy, thanks for your review. We would love to have you back next time you are passing.

We had a very nice comfortable stay here, we were arriving late with our new born so they pretty warmed our room for us. Everything you need and very clean and tidy, affordable and accommodating. Definitely recommend and would stay again.

Thanks Stephanie for this review. I hope you are getting a few hours good sleep in with the new born! Cheers

I travel from Auckland to Wellington 6 times yearly, Aspen Taihape motel is the best hotel we have stayed. New and modern design, very clean and tidy. Bed is very comfort. Large carpark space and easy walk to town center. Sure will stay again on coming November.

Great stuff Richard. Thank you for your repeat custom. Safe driving.

Excellent motel, one of first motels where the online photos truely reflected the motel. Very clean warm and comfortable. Beds were very comfortable. We were travelling with two dogs and rhey happily accommodated this. Gentlemen at reception was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

Thanks Sara. All the best.

Town / Country: Auckland New Zealand

Stayed two nights very comfortable and clean. Beds were very comfortable. One of the few motels were the online photos truely reflected the rooms.

Hello Sara. Ha. Yes a lot of places show only the photos of their best room.....or how the room was ten years ago! We only show what we truly have to offer as you found out. Thanks for the review.

by Lisa S on Aspen Court Taihape
Town / Country: New Zealand

Perfectly positioned for my trips between the Picton ferry and Auckland for breaking up my 2 day journey. The rooms are quite spacious, very comfortable, always clean and I love relaxing in the spa bath after a long day on the road! Meals are just a short walk around the corner to either the local pub or next door at Gumboot Manor. The staff are always refreshingly friendly with plenty of local tips to offer. I Highly Recommend! Thanks chaps!

Hello there Lisa, thanks for taking the time to write these nice words. Great to have you as a repeat guest. Safe driving. Cheers

by Heather on Aspen Court Taihape
Town / Country: Ohope

This is a very comfortable place to stay. We like it so much that we stay every time we head to Wellington. The interior unit design and lighting placements are very well thought out. The beds are super comfortable. We are always warm and cosy here. We rate it Nz's best motel and to top it off The Telephonic Restaurant by the clock tower,(centre of town), is amazingly good.

Hi Heather, thanks for these lovely comments about us and Le Telephonique. Great to hear that you are repeat visitors. Safe driving and see you again soon.

by Jade Bai on Aspen Court Taihape
Town / Country: Taumarunui

Lovely modern unit. Beds were super comfy and everything was pristeen clean. We arrived late on a cold night and the unit was still warm even though the heating hadn't been turned on yet. Would recommend to everyone!

Hi there Jade, thanks so much for your nice comments. Our units are well insulated and double glazed so the heat remains within! Cheers

by Sharleen Manning on Aspen Court Taihape
Town / Country: NZ

This motel truly is a hidden gem, always spotlessly clean and welcoming. A big thank you to Ken who looked after us and gave us his papers to read. A lot of big city motels could learn alot from this motel - Thank you, we will be back. 😊

Thank you very much for this review Sharleen. We look forward to seeing you again. Cheers.

by Judy Webb on Aspen Court Taihape
Town / Country: Auckland/New Zealand

What a fabulous place to stay. Wished we had chosen to stay longer. Kitchen had all we needed plus some. We were in a disabled unit which allowed for a huge shower which was excellent. No road noise for us. Luggage space at the door made all the difference. Unit was extra clean and sparkling. Cleaning staff were well presented and very friendly. Very comfy bed. Only complaint was the smell of smoke in reception area.

Hi there Judy, thank you so much for this review. We would have loved you to stay longer....maybe next time. Apologies for the smoke smell in reception too!

by Philip Sonntag on Aspen Court Taihape

I highly recommend this motel and would stay again.

Thank you Sir for your nice comments!

by Tony van der Lem on Aspen Court Taihape
Town / Country: New Zealand

Very comfortable stay, Unit was well equipped and the bed was excellent, my suggestion to Aspen Court Taihape management was that no smoking signs be placed in the units, a previous guest had smoked in the unit in which we stayed which is very unpleasant for a non smoker, it is not asking too much for a guest to step outside for a puff.

Thanks Tony for your review. Yes we completely agree and we have always had them in the past but removed them recently as it was considered a given these days that everybody knows you cannot smoke inside. We will follow this up. Cheers

Town / Country: BoP NZ

Unit was spotlessly clean and well equiped. Good sized bed which was very comfortable. Two minor points - one of the bath towels was worn and frayed and two easy chairs would have been appreciated (room only had one). Would stay again when travelling to Wellington.

Thanks Ellie for your review. We are in the process of replacing all of our bath towels etc, thank you for nothing this. Safe travelling.

Town / Country: Palmy Nth

Another amazing & relaxing stay at the Taihape Aspen Court. Always clean, has a great spa and is very spacious. All of the Staff are always friendly and helpful. Our family absolutely love coming to this Motel.(Button on the Spa is faulty).

Thanks Dean for this review and continued custom. Thank you also for pointing out the issue re: Spa bath. Regards.

by Ruth Patten on Aspen Court Taihape

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

by Trevor on Aspen Court Taihape
Town / Country: Southampton, England

Lovely motel with friendly staff. We stay here often and are always well looked after. Added advantage is Gumboot Manor Cafe next door which does the best roast pork dinners in NZ!!

Thanks John for your lovely review. Pleased to hear that you love next doors food as well as our beds. All the best.
