We regularly drive from Auckland to Wellington and this is the place we always stop. The rooms are clean, comfortable and warm in winter. The spa bath soothes the aching muscles and they are convenient to all the amenities. Very friendly.

Lovely Motel. Friendly staff. Clean and pleasant rooms. Wonderful bathroom. Really close to the highway but very quiet. I stayed at four motels on my trip and this was by the best and also the cheapest. Really happy with the whole experience. I would stay again.

We love staying here! So warm, clean and well maintained. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the spa bath is a lovely treat at the end of a long day. This motel alone is worth stopping in Taihape for.

Very comfortable and spacious rooms. Good air-conditioning and double-glazed. Friendly host. Comfortable beds. Play area for children. We were surprised that it took only 35 minutes to Ohakune and another quarter of an hour to the Turoa ski field.

Thank you Robert_NZ19 Good to hear you enjoyed your stay with us at Aspen Court Taihape. And yes we are only 50 minutes from the Turoa Skifield Carpark...not many people realise that. So if you are from Wellington and you are going skiing then stay with us in Taihape and save money on your accommodation. Many thanks and see you... More

The rooms are fantastically tidy and well presented. The fit outs are neat and quality products have been used. The rooms are large, beds comfortable and amenities fantastic. We have stayed there now 3 times and have recommended Aspen Court to our other family members who are passing through.

Spacious, with a large bathroom, excellent water pressure, and very comfortable bed. Good cooking facilities for a studio unit. I see some reviewers complaining of noise but considering the Aspen is in between state highway 1 and the rail line, I found the room to be very quiet. Perhaps this was because I was in a middle unit. Overall, if... More

This was an excellent motel. I would recommend this motel to anyone. The manager was very accommodating and we really enjoyed our stay. The room was very clean and very roomy. The spa bath was just what we needed after a long drive. The motel was on the main road but it was so quiet. The rooms were also very... More

Handy to everything (although Taihape isn't a large place!). Room was clean, tidy and comfortable. Extra pillows available to boost up to what ever comfort level you are use to. Reasonable selection of TV channels. Some traffic noise with the State Highway on one side and the railway on the other. 100MB of free WI-Fi available via zenbu.
