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.

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

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.

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!

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.

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

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!!

Attractive, clean, spacious, quiet and private. Helpful, friendly manager. We could not fault it.

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
Town / Country: Mt Maunganui, New Zealand

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.
