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.

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.

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
