This is our second time here. Very clean and comfortable. We will definitely stay with you again. Probably with the MG Car Club next time. Definitely recommend your motel to friends.
Thank you Shaun for your review. Safe driving that MG of yours! Cheers.
Stayed one night and was very impressed with the spacious and very clean unit. Great place - will definitely stay again. Thank you.
Hi there Anita, many thanks for your review. Yes please do come and stay again with us when you are next heading south, or better still, stay 2 to 3 nights and explore our magnificent region. All the best.
This motel is always a winner for us. It’s clean, spacious, warm and I would recommend it.
Great to hear that Marie. Thank you so much for your review.
Thank you very much for your hospitality. We enjoyed our stay as we have previously and would definitely come back again and will recommend your accommodation to anyone we know who is heading up that way.
Great to hear from you Steve, thanks for writing this review. Cheers
Great place to stay with my family. Big room with very comfortable beds clean and tidy. Only thing is it would have been nice to have more of a outside shelter by the entry but was great apart from that. Would definitely stay again
Hi there Lucy and thank you for your review. It must have been raining when you arrived hence your comment about outside shelter.....we actually do have a 900mm soffit so there is more than normal space for keeping out of the rain.....most buildings have only 600mm. However if it was hosing down I suppose you would get wet anyway. Safe travels and thanks for the suggestion. Just f.y.i for our new complex in Murchison we are having a 1200mm soffit/overhang.
Have stayed here on numerous occasions and have always it clean, friendly and comfortable. Will keep coming back.
Brilliant, thanks so much for this Evan. Cheers.
Even though we had booked in for New Year as we left last year, an effort was made to give us a room cause our booking went west. This was much appreciated and the room was great - even had our own bit of grass for our little dog to run around on.
Apologies about the booking issue Noeline, great that we were able to resolve it and that you had a nice time with us. Thanks.
As usual- everything really good, such a great motel! Well equipped, always clean and good beds. George is always so helpful, we so appreciate that, we just love stopping at this place!
Cheers Derek and Margaret for your review and repeat custom. We love having you back with us. All the best.
Great units , handy to steakhouse , very clean and tidy.
Lovely to hear from you Rogan. Take it easy.
My daughter and I stayed overnight on our way to Waiheke. We had a lovely clean, comfortable spacious room. We were able to do our laundry on site for a small fee, which was great 😊
Would highly recommend to anyone 🌺
Great stuff thanks Tracy. On your way south after the Waiheke trip, make sure you call early to book a night with us. See you soon.
Travelling with a pet, could not have been made more welcome. Top rated accommodation and hosts. Sorry that you were booked out for our return trip.
Hi there Rodger and Wendy, thanks for the review and no problems at all. Yes you will need to plan and book ahead as we have been particularly busy of late. Cheers.
Lovely roomy units to stay in. Always stay here if going between Hamilton and Wellington. Very helpful when I had left my phone cord at home. Maureen
Thanks Maureen for this review. Great to hear from you and see you again.
We arrived Boxing Day with 2 children and had only booked for 2 adults. The owner went above and beyond to fit us all in even though the motel was fully booked. The unit was spotless and so comfortable. We had everything we needed. Very close to town and great parking. I would recommend staying here to anyone.
Great to hear from you Anne and thanks for taking the time to write this review. Yes children are of course extra so please make sure next time you book ahead that you tell us the details of all of the occupants. All the best.
I have been staying at Aspen Court for many years now and George and Annette are excellent hosts. The rooms are always spotless and they are very accommodating.
Great to hear from you Chris and thank you for your repeat custom. Yes they both do a sterling job, as do our housekeeping staff. Safe travels and all the best. Cheers
Once again enjoyed a relaxing two night stay at Aspen Court Motels and standard was the usual high quality. Clean, spacious, accommodating re requirements etc. and look forward to our next visit. Thanks George and Annette
Cool, great to have you back Marilyn. Safe journeys.
Stayed twice in last 2 weeks to break journey . Spacious comfortable spotless room and will happily stay again on our next upcountry trip. Lovely meal 2 just down road at "Rustic Steak House"
Thanks a lot for your review John and Sue. We look forward to seeing you again in Taihape! All the best.
Booked at Aspen for my partner and his 3 old mates. They loved it. Great room, nice people easy to find.
Thank you Chrissie for this review. All the best.
We had a great one night stay at Aspen Court. We were upgraded to a one bedroom unit that was exceptionally spacious. A failed reading lamp was replaced instantly from the room of the duty manager - great commitment. Nothing was too much trouble including ensuring we had a safe park for our car and trailer. Highly recommend this motel.
Great to hear Campbell. Hopefully you were able to read just fine in the end. Happy travelling.
Great motel. Very clean and spacious room. Quiet location but enjoyed the sound of a train passing by. Would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended.
Great to hear from you Maarten and thank you for your kind words. The train is quite close isn't it?
Think it may be time for some new mattresses as the room in which we stayed let down what was otherwise a lovely stay
Thanks Margie for this. What unit were you in? We will certainly look into this. Regards.
We found Aspen Court very clean and comfortable, well appointed with kitchen necessities, and in a delightful environment. We were there for an overnight stay in the first stages of our 5 week Kiwi roadie. The location was an easy walk into town were we could visit restaurants so we picked up a pizza at Al Centro which was delicious. The following morning we enjoyed breakfast at The Brown Sugar Cafe - an absolute must for anyone travelling through Taihape. I would thoroughly recommend this stopover if you're travelling between NZ's two main North Island cities.
Thank you so much Sylvienne for this lovely review. We hope you managed to find some time to stay at our sister properties in the South Island...at Mt Cook Village and Franz Josef. All the best.
Had a fantastic stay! Beautiful and super clean room. Lovely spa bath . Had a super night and stay. We will definitely be back again . Thank you
Thank you Cherie. We would love to have you back with us. Great to hear you had an enjoyable stay.
Very pleasant, roomy. Spotless, everything was in good order. Worth the price. Thanks for the stay. - our first.
Hi there and many thanks for these comments. Well we have been here for 18 years so lets home you come back much sooner than another 18 years! All the best.
Our stay here is always fantastic. The rooms are meticulously clean . The decor is modern & pleasing to the eye. The air con/heat pump is awesome. The spa bath is perfect...We always look forward to staying here. Having dust allergies makes this my number 1 motel on the way to Wellington everytime. Thankyou
Thanks so much for this Vaine. Really nice to hear from somebody who obviously is a repeat guest. Thank you!
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.
