Definitely one of the best motels I've ever stayed at. Room was warm on arrival, spacious, well furnished and scrupulously clean. A very convenient place to break the journey north from Wellington.
Lovely to hear from you Mike and especially with your nice words. Thank you!
Great place to stay if you want to do the Gentle Annie Road across to Hastings. Clean and spacious rooms, comfy beds and close location to shops and restaurants. Would definitely stay again.
Hi there Cilla. Thanks so much for your nice words. Please do!
Second time we have stayed here, would absolutely stay again! Spacious, clean and tidy accommodation, friendly host, has everything you need for a lovely relaxing time away. Very highly recommended. 👍😊
Brilliant to hear. Thank you Brenda for this review. Safe driving.
Lovely clean unit . Surprisingly quiet, right next to the main road.
Yep fully double glazed with noise fighting insulation! Thank you for your review Dave.
One of the best motels we have stayed in during our travels in NZ & many countries around the world. Spotless room with appropriate furniture & furnishings; modern & appealing crockery; large bathroom with shower over spa bath. A very pleasant stop over & standards maintained from previous stay over 3 years ago with sister in law & husband visiting from overseas. Hope to be able to visit again sometime !
Thanks Donald and Margaret for your repeat visit and your lovely comments. Safe travels and all the best. Cheers
Good stop over point on the trip down south, very clean tidy and comfy rooms. We were upgraded to family suit so plenty of room. Friendly staff and there is a good steak restaurant just next door.
Great to hear, thanks for this review Julie. All the best.
Awesome clean motel highly recommend.
Thanks Robert for your short but complimentary words. All the best.
2nd time. We loved our stay again. Can not fault. Will be back. Thank you
Cool. Thanks for this review Tracey. Great to hear from you and safe driving.
Nice rooms, very clean, comfy, and well appointed. Love the heated floor in the bathroom and kitchen. Our place of preference to stay for skiing.
Thanks so much for your review Sandy. Yes if you are coming from the south, its not a bad spot to base yourself for Turoa...only 50 minutes to the carpark! See you next ski season.
Excellent quiet facility with spacious well appointed rooms. Use this as a regular stop when we head south now.
Hi there Richard. Thank you for your review and repeat business. All the best.
5 out of 5, couldn't fault it. Super roomy 1 bedroom unit, beautifully clean and would totally recommend.
Great stuff.....thanks Kate. All the best.
We got the one bedroom unit and stayed for one night as we were passing through. The unit was lovely, spacious and very clean and tidy. The spa bath was a treat and we would definitely stay again.
Cool....lucky you guys! Thanks for the review and so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us.....even if just passing through. You know where we are and definitely come again. Cheers.
Beautiful clean room and bathroom, a bit sad our trip was a quick one. Could have relaxed peacefully for longer. Exceptionally comfortable bed. Lovely spa bath. View onto playground, best is on the main road and hardly any traffic noise. We arrived pretty late. Owners turned lights and heating on so we arrived to a lovely warm room.
Great to hear from you Simone. Thank you for the kind words and yes.....next time you are passing through....spend an extra night here in Taihape.....you will not regret it!
We absolutely loved our stay! We were in Taihape for our grandmother's 90th birthday & everybody kept saying that we were staying in the "flash" Motel! Our room was cosy, inviting & a nice slice of luxury. My children enjoyed the little playground & enjoyed climbing on the rocks too! That was nice for the kids to play outside in the nice weather! We will be back again to stay.
Hi there Rachel. Thanks for this review. Great to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and that the big birthday party went well too. See you again one day soon.
This is a really nice clean hotel with good friendly service. Perfect for our short stay in Taihape.
Great to hear from you Darin, thank you for these comments. See you again soon.
Perfect place to spend time with our daughter whos training at the army base. Great weekend away with comfortable beds in both rooms very clean and tidy ,nice kitchen ware. Highlight arriving back from the snow to warm apartment, underfloor heating and a relaxing bubble spa bath. Definitely stay there again. Thank you
Great to hear from you Jo. Many thanks for these nice words and so nice to hear that you were well looked after. See you next time you are visiting your daughter at Waiouru.
Fantastic -as usual! Always clean, very comfortable, well equipped, good beds and excellent service. And, so well situated when en route between Auckland and Christchurch. So appreciate your accommodating us when we're going to be arriving late, too.
Long way from home Derek/Margaret! Thank you for your review and yes call in and stay anytime!
Absolutely clean and tidy, units are well appointed. The night we stayed was cold outside but very warm in our unit, if you need to stay over night in Taihape this is the place to say.
Great to hear from you Malcolm. We look forward to you staying with us again. Safe travels.
We had a lovely stay here, We have stayed twice and the couple who run the motel were very accommodating. The units were great and we loved the spa bath. This is a wonderful place to stay.
Hello Karen, Many thanks for these nice words. We look forward to having you staying with us again one day soon. Take care.
We stay at The Aspen Court several times a year and absolutely love it. Great decor, exceptionally clean. Always smells great when you first walk in . Love it
Hi Kyra.....and we love the fact that you keep coming back! That means we are doing things well. See you soon.
Immaculately clean and tidy. Would happily stay again.
Look forward to seeing you with us again soon Julie.
Very nice clean motel in Taihape, but Taihape is a very cold and I can't believe that they don't have electric blankets on the beds. I thought it was standard. Stay in a fair few motels in my time and this would have to be the first with no electric blankets and summer sheets. Very Disappointing.
Hi there Julie. Yes that is correct we don't have electric blankets as they are terrible things. Our units are well insulated and with our heating we feel we do not need these little human cookers. We got rid of our electric blankets ten years ago and have had few (if any) complaints until now. Summer sheets...? Like most commercial operators we do not alternate between summer and winter linen. Safe travels.
So quiet given on SH1. Loved the heated tiles in bathroom. Beautiful room. Great value for money. Will be back to stay.
Hi there Barb. Thank you for taking your time to write these comments. We look forward to having you back with us. All the best.
Another lovely stay here thankyou. Lovely room, comfortable, clean, quiet and modern, fuss-free booking and check in.
Great to hear from you Eleanore. Safe driving....see you again soon.
Nice size room and bathroom. Kids enjoyed spa bath. Happy to stay again on next visit.
Good to hear from you and thanks for the review. See you again some day.
Fantastic stay, great customer service with an excellent steak house 2min walk.

Great to hear from you Leonard. Why dont you come up with the family for a weekend stay in Taihape one day? All the best.
Love our stay as a family. Clean and modern and beautifully presented. Everything you need is there and my kids enjoyed the spa bath with Dad immensely! Definitely would stay again...just need to find a reason to!
Thanks Kiri......Turoa will be opening soon so head down and stay with us. We are 55 minutes to the skifield carpark. Great to have you staying with us and safe travels.
We were on our way home after a road trip to the South Island - decided to overnight in Taihape for the first time ever, as we had left Wellington quite late. Pleasantly surprised with Aspen Court which was spotless, spacious, well equipped and warm on a very chilly night. Owner suggested Le Café Téléfonique (aka Old Post Office) for dinner - great recommendation.
Cool. Nice to hear your were pleasantly surprise...twice....in Taihape. Now that you know, make sure you stay here next time you are travelling through. All the best Jeffery.
Booked online 10 mins earlier, very wet and foggy night. Greeted at reception by lovely gentleman with our key! Absolutely enjoyed our stay, definitely will return! Room was lovely and relaxing. I would say tho it might pay to check the spa jets as the water wasn’t heating underneath and cold water was coming thru. Thank you Aspen Court for having a room available for 2 late check ins. Barb
Thank you Barb for your kind words. Yes we will have a look at the jets to see if there are any issues. All the best and see you again soon.
I have stayed by myself at Aspen Court many times. This time Susie & I were returning from a 2.5 week stay with sons in AKL so overnighted in Taihape 2nd June. I own a travel company so tend to be really fussy. Susie & I were absolutely delighted with presentation, comfit & spotlessly clean presentation. George at reception continues to be one of the best in the motel business. 100% recommend the Aspen Court.
Thank you Paul, not ony for your lovely review but also for your repeat custom over the many years that you have stayed with us. It is much appreciated and we wish you all the best. Cheers
Awesome stay ..Great service Very helpful and friendly host ....Thanks team
Cheers Barry for your review. Hope you had a safe trip home. All the best.
The rooms were immaculate - clean and modern. Would certainly recommend if you are looking for somewhere to stay in Taihape.
Great to hear from you Fran. Many thanks for this review.
Very friendly service! 🙂
Thanks Michael for your review. Safe driving.
I really appreciated that on arrival the heater was on in the room, making for a very comfortable stay after a very long day. The customer service was very welcoming and I couldn't fault it, would definitely recommend.
Thank you Andy for your review of our complex. So nice to have you staying with us. See you again soon.
Great stay and comfortable and clean rooms. Close to town. Would stay here in a heart beat again
Thanks Mark, Safe travels. Cheers
Great stay! Extremely clean, quiet, warm, and comfortable. Would highly recommend and stay again. Thank you!
Cool. Thanks Ella for your nice words.....see you again soon! All the best.
Excellent facility - very clean with good facilities. Great bed after long day travelling. Would recommend.
Thank you Penny. Great to hear from you and good to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. All the best.
Aspen Court is spotlessly clean. Facilities were very comfortable & cosy. Great parking and double glazing meant the road noise was minimal & we stayed in unit one right on the road front.
Hi Ruth, so happy to hear that you were very comfortable on your recent stay with us. We appreciate your review so thank you for that. See you again one day soon hopefully.
Stayed one night at the Aspen Court on the weekend. Just what we needed after a very long drive.. we called ahead as thought we would be in late. The light was on in our room and it was super clean and comfortable. Definitely would recommend. Thanks very much.
No problems Jody/Richie....all part of the service and thanks for taking time out to write this review. All the best.
Very nice for our needs. Clean, cosy and comfortable. Very happy with accommodation so we could attend out mums 80th birthday party !!
Thanks Peter and Pieta. Hopefully the 80th went very well, so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. Safe travels home.
Stayed for two nights in Unit 21, which was comfortable and very tidy. The complex is well maintained and has plenty of parking. Couldn’t hear any traffic noise inside the room, which was good. Happy with everything and will definitely stay again.
Thanks Peter and yes please do stay again with us. See you.
Aspen Court met and fully exceeded our expectations. We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment - it was clean, modern, spacious. Absolutely nothing to fault and we will be staying there again. Exceptional!
Cool, thanks for your great review of our complex Jenny. We look forward to seeing you again with us next time you are heading south. All the best.
I stayed at Aspen Court a few years ago and always remembered it as a spotless classy motel with good service so was not disappointed to find it exactly the same several years on. One of the nicest motel complexes I've stayed at. Also highly recommend.
Cheers Karen for this review. We look forward to seeing you again some time soon.
The Motel looked already at arrival very well kept up. A very kind gentlemen checked me in and gave me an upgrade on the room. Thank you very much again. The appartment was really lovely, very well equiped, very clean and nice designed and lots of room. I felt very lucky, comfortable and enjoyed my stay very much. I will recommemd highly your Motel to anyone. Just a perfect stay traveling up north.
Thanks Bernadette for this. Safe travels and enjoy NZ.
We booked 4 rooms. Our room was large and clean. Dinner at the Rustic steak house two doors away. Two nights stay loved it . Jan amd Allan Barclay Otorohanga.
Thanks again for the reviews. All the best.
We had rooms 15 17 14 12. All good size airy. Reception great. Food at Rustic bar and grill two dors away. Fab food. Will come back again. 10/10
Brilliant review thanks Allan. Safe travels back to the King Country.
Stayed in the 2 bed apartment. Parking directly outside and only $190 for the night. Was very clean and spacious. Check in at reception was quick and easy and served by a gentlemen who was very charming and polite. Steakhouse a couple of doors away with good food and very friendly staff. A lovely stay on the way back to Wellington. Highly recommended.
Great to hear Brendan and especially that you feel we are great value! Safe travels back to Wellington and see you again soon hopefully.
We had a wedding in Taihape on a Saturday night, Booked the accommodation a few months earlier quick and easy over the internet. Motel staff were friendly and helpful on arrival and the room was immaculate and very modern, very happy with our stay.
Cool, great to hear. Thanks for this and see you again soon hopefully.
We always stay here when we are visiting Taihape. Room is clean and immaculate. Has everything you need for overnight stay.
Thanks Susan for this. See you again one day.
The facilities at Aspen Court are lovely. The rooms are pleasantly and stylishly decorated and very clean, as were the grounds. The cleaning staff were helpful and welcoming as was Dave, the manager we dealt with when booking and first arriving.
Unfortunately, and by no fault of Aspen Court, Taihape had a scheduled 'power outage' between 9 am - 4 pm, Sunday 16 February, which was our day to check out. Whilst an inconvenience to us and all the guests I imagine, there was nothing we could do. However, I did not appreciate the Manager's manner (whose name I do not know) and tone toward myself and my brother, who was also a paying guest, in another room. I found him to be rude and belligerent because we had not come to settle our bill before the 'power outage.' May I remind him that this predicament was no fault of ours and that the guests were the ones being put out. I appreciate the stressful situation he was under but in no way should rudeness or belligerence be accepted in hospitality. Thankfully this occurred at the end of our stay so as not to ruin what was a quality stay.
Thank you Jo for your review. I am pleased that you had an enjoyable time with us apart from when it came time to leave and the unfortunate turn of events that ensued. I will discuss this with George, our manager. Safe travels and all the best.
