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

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

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.

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.

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.

Hi there Guy, thanks for this review. We hope the skiing went well also!

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.

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.

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!

by Renelda on Aspen Court Taihape

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.

by Graham and Janet Baker on Aspen Court Taihape
Town / Country: Tauranga

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.

by Glenice on Aspen Court Taihape

by Kirsti Kay on Aspen Court Taihape
Town / Country: Whakatane

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.

by Kristy on Aspen Court Taihape
Town / Country: New Zealand

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.

by Damian Smith on Aspen Court Taihape
Town / Country: Wellington

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.

by Jocelyn on Aspen Court Taihape

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.

by Alan White on Aspen Court Taihape
Town / Country: Napier

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.

by Sherry on Aspen Court Taihape

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.
