This is a lovely quiet motel. Lots of room and very quiet and very comfortable. We were only there for a one night stop over. Wish it could have been longer. The owner was lovely and very helpful. There was a big spa bath in the bathroom which was very relaxing. All this at a very affordable price.

Having stayed in several different motels because of my work I was delighted once again to stay at Aspen Court in Taihape for the first time in a couple of years. The room was spacious, bright, clean and very very comfortable - in stark contrast to some of the places I have recently visited. If only they had motels like... More

I only stayed for one night, but the outside area was very tidy and looked nice. The rooms were clean and tidy and very comfortable. I wish I had a chance to try the spa bath, maybe next time. Good place to enjoy a nights rest

Stopped here during our move north from Wellington. Really clean rooms, had a spa bath in our room which was lovely to relax in. The bed was a king and really comfy. TV was in a awkward place- on luggage stand- but had a good selection of channels. Good food next door. Would stay again.

Thanks chaz78NZ for your comments. It is always nice to hear from satisified clients. The playground is great for the kids isn't it? Our soundproofing does wonders in respect of the road noise so it is good that you noticed this. We look forward to seeing you again one day. More

This is a great place to stay when visiting the North Island, we have used it for many years now. It has exceptionally large rooms with good access. Nice and warm during those cold August nights and has Air Con for the summer as well. This is a great stopping off point as we criss cross the Island and also... More

We stayed at Aspen Court for 2 nights in the one bedroom unit and were impressed with the cleanliness and service provided. The rooms are spacious and the huge spa bath a treat. We would recommend this motel if you are travelling through Taihape and intend to stay again.

We stayed the night here after a relaxing rafting trip down the Rangitakei River. The motel is spacious, comfortable and clean. The family room has almost all the facilities you would need.

This is a clean and modern motel which was perfect for our overnight stay in Taihape. There is plenty of space for kids to play. The proprietor was very friendly and helpful. We have stayed there before and would do so again.
