Second stay at Aspen Court in Taihape Always a good place to stay, clean and tidy, good facilities, like the heated floor tiles be a real bonus in winter. Restaurant - Gumboot Manor - right next door - also good place for a feed.

Our original intention was to stay in Taupo or Turangi en route from Auckland to Wellington but on the Friday of a long weekend accomodation was in short supply. What a happy outcome. Not only is Aspen Court one of the nicer motels we have ever stayed in (great layout, spacious, pleasant outdoor area, attractive fittings and fixtures, clean and... More

We chose Aspen Court on the basis of good reviews and the fact that it was a convenient stopping-off point on our journey from Rotorua to Wellington. The room was a good size, with comfortable beds, a well-planned kitchen and a good bathroom. Taihape is not exactly a lively metropolis, so don't expect to find a lot to do "in... More

Checking into this hotel was quick and easy. Rooms are quite large, and nicely appointed and spotlessly clean, which I know is a point of pride here. Bathroom was lovely, and spa was great after a long day. Only problems here is plates are square, and if you want to heat something in the microwave, you will struggle, and there... More

This motel is very tidy and is well located next to the main highway. It is run by friendly helpful people that provided fresh milk and a newspaper. I have stayed there before and will definitely stay again.

This is a great place to overnight in, when travelling between Auckland & Wellinton or vise versa, We and our extended family have stayed here several times. Good clean accomodatioin at a reasonable price. Helpful , pleasant hosts. Some light sleepers may find passing traffic a little noisy, but seasoned travellers will cope easily.

The Aspen is a comfortable, value for money stop-off just before / after the Desert Road segment of the journey north. The rooms are spacious and clean. We have stayed twice now, and recommend to others.

On our return road trip from Tauranga to Wellington, Aspen Court was a life-saver place to stop for the night... Even with a baby and dog in tow! It is rare to find a place so accommodating of pets (even well-trained ones who sleep in the car!), so we really appreciated being able to bring our pup here for the... More

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
