Well placed and easy to find. The rooms were immaculate, very clean and well sized with good amenities and a spa bath. The operators were friendly and obliging and the breakfast was good! I'd definitely stay here again

We have stayed at this motel several times and once again our motel room was very clean, with extra cutlery and a peeling knife (many motels lack) in the room and the units are nice and roomy (well laid out) with very comfortable beds and a large desk. You can hear the trucks on the highway and the trains pass... More

Just returned from a long weekend away playing golf in the Taihape region. Our group used 2 of the larger rooms available and we were impressed with the quality of the accommodation. It was extremely clean and comfortable and house keeping did an excellent job making up the rooms each day. Beds were comfy and the appliances were modern and... More

Always a good stay. However it needs some refurbishment. The bed was a bit soft on the sides and the bathroom needs repainting. The toilet could do with a new seat. Would recommend as is very good value for money

Hello 255115Mike. We appreciate you taking the time to write this review. You are 100% correct in that our original motel units do need some refurbishment work and this is on the agenda for 2015. They are now 12 years old and now need to be updated. We look forward to seeing you again one day soon. More

For over three weeks in April/May 2014 a colleague and I stayed at Aspen Court in Taihape. During our extended stay George, Annette and their team went to great lengths to make us feel at home and treated us like family. The place is super friendly and immaculate - 'we will return'. Highly recommended. Thanks guys for making work away... More

One of the best motels we have stayed in for a long time. Modern and clean was so refreshing in this motel. It was quiet and everything was of a high standard. The owner was absolutely lovely to add an extra star and the bed was extra comfy too. We will definitely be back to stay as this hotel is... More

This was the 2nd time we have stayed here. Is a pretty standard NZ motel, but great value and obviously very well cared for. The whole place was super clean, beds were comfy, the shower was great, the kids loved the huge bath and we couldn't really ask for anything more. It does get a wee bit for noise from... More

Thanks MrsBails83 for your comments. Thank you for being a repeat customer and yes please do arrange your future trips north around staying in Taihape. It is a great area to explore and too often people ignore it by having to rush off and be elsewhere. Great to hear the kids were well looked after. Thank you. More

My husband and I stayed here for a night while driving from Wellington towards Auckland. Firstly, George, one of the hosts, was kind and friendly. In fact, I had accidentally submitted my reservation the wrong month and had therefore completely "missed the reservation", George caught the mistake and emailed me to make sure and changed the reservation for me.
