Nice, clean, friendly owners, comfotable bed, no complaints :) I stayed here as I was passing through Taihape at night. Booked online and was welcomed when I arrived. I also requested a late checkout in the morning and the owner was very obliging. Would recommend this place to anyone.

Absolutely nothing wrong here, but nothing special either - just your average NZ motel. Well appointed, and the spa bath was a nice touch. Proximity to the railway line (and some cows) added a bit of extra noise at times but nothing too bad. Parking good. Heating good and warmed the unit nicely. Kitchen as expected. The only negative was... More

Rates among the best motels because of its spacious, clean, aesthetic feel. And also because of the friendly and helpful management. We called ahead to give approximate late arrival time and lights heating etc all on when we got there. Has to be the best in Taihape.

This is a great motel to stop in if you are travelling through the middle of the Noth Island. The Management are very friendly and accomodating, the motel unit was impecabbly clean, comfortable and tidy. Even the background noise of the odd freight train rumbling past did not distract from a very pleasant stay, I would not hesitate to reccommend... More

Probably shouldn't be sharing this as I will want to visit again and hope they have a room, but this is the perfect Saturday night base for two days skiing on the mountain. The room we were given was spacious, warm and spotlessly clean. It easily accommodated my two daughters in the bedroom and myself on the king sized bed... More

Thanks MarkNZ66 for your review. Great to hear we were able to accommodate yourself and your daughters on your ski weekend away from Wellington. Our rooms are large and yes a much more affordable alternative to Ohakune. Many thanks and see you again next ski season! More

The grounds are immaculate.A nice walk from town with a restaurant very handy to the motel.Thus combined with friendly hosts, make this such a great place to stay.

We like to find an excuse to stop off at Aspen Court. We have just finished a holiday using 15 motels around NZ. This motel is so clean, warm and comfortable. It has been the best by far. Congratulations to management and staff. This is home away from home.

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.
