We have been travelling in New Zealand for 3 weeks and this is the best Motel we have stayed in. We stopped on our way from Wellington to Taupo. The receptionist was very welcoming and helpful. The room was immaculate, beautifully decorated and well equipped. We were a little concerned about previous comments of road noise but we did not... More

I spent a night at Aspen Court with overseas visitors and was thoroughly impressed. Large, spacious rooms, very well presented, sparkling clean and had everything we needed, plus the bonus of a wonderful spa bath and air conditioning. I know other reviews have mentioned the train going past and a bit of road noise, but I can honestly say I... More

We stayed at the Aspen Court Motel for one night enroute from Wellington to Waihi Beach. The room was large, very clean and tidy, and the bed was comfortable. We did not notice any noise from the state highway at the front of the motel, but the noise from a couple of trains rumbling past the rear of the room... More

Great stop over for national park. Next door to a good restaurant. Good size room. Very friendly staff. The breakfast was very good, delivered to the door. We would recommend this motel and would stay again.

We stayed here for one night en-route from the south island to Rotorua. Our motel suite was HUGE and very very clean and well kept. A good place as a stop off and there is a nice play area for the kids to let off steam.

Living in Paraparaumu, we have often stayed at the Aspen Court Motel when heading further north, and on our way back home. This gives us a good start to our journey and we are always confident of excellent accommodation. The studio rooms are large and comfortable with king-sized beds. The cooked breakfast was also very nice and George went out... More

The owner makes you feel welcome and can't do enough for you. The housekeeping is excellent and everything works. We've stayed here three times as it's a convenient overnight for various road trips. Most recently Waitangi weekend. A top-class motel.

It a extremely nice cheap affordable place to stay very clean very spacious good location free wifi. It's nicely furnished the motel had lots of parks. And also had a really nice warm shower with good pressure. Bed was a bit to soft but that would be the only bit to complain but that's personal preference

Lovely motel with good service. Good guest laundry, free WiFi, good kitchen and bathroom. Nice and clean with great bed. The only down side is the main road running along the front and the main trunk line running directly behind.
