Stayed at Aspen Court Motel for 2 nights... very accommodating hosts and lovely comfortable room and good internet access.. Twizel is a great base to explore this region and visit all the local attractions such as Lake Pukaki, Mt Cook, and the surrounding lakes and dams.. Lots of Hiking to be had..

Clean, comfortable rooms. Stayed in the two bedroom suite. We have three kids, the staff had already made up an extra single bed in the kids bedroom for us. The shower was in the spa which had good pressure and plenty of room, however the extractor fan didn't work very well and the entire bathroom steamed up really quickly. Otherwise,... More

Hi. Stayed in this hotel just a few days ago. We were 6 of us with kids. And the lady got so pissed off with us in the morning as we were just finishing our breakfast just over the check out time! She snapped at us so badly and we also said we were almost done and will be out... More

Hi, I think you review is a tad exaggerated. On arrival I mentioned as a reminder about 10am checkout and you flatly said to me 'No we will checkout at 10.30-11am, to which I said 10am would be suited. We have signs stating the fee, which have been in place for many years. The weather was only slightly raining, at... More

Overall we really enjoyed our stay. The room was warm, comfortable and well-equipped. Would highly recommend, friendly owners, heaps to do in the area. The only downside for us was that although we specifically requested a spa bath when we booked, as per the website suggestion, we were given one of the only two rooms without so don't bank on...

We just finished a three week trip throughout New Zealand and found Aspen Court Motel to be one of the best accommodations that we stayed in. Everything about the room was great.....the spaciousness of the room, the well-equipped kitchen, the shower water pressure and the cleanliness. Absolutely no complaints!

We stayed for one night in hotel room 1, which we think may have been the wheelchair accessible unit, as bathroom was huge! Room was comfortable with a small kitchenette. Not far from the centre of town. Our favourite part was the shower as the water pressure was really strong with plenty of hot water. Would recommend this hotel.

So far spent two nights here as we do the A2O ride from Mt Cook to Oamaru. This is not 5 star hotel Accom but is simply good old fashioned kiwi motel accommodation - tidy, clean, comfortable, friendly and convenient.

Hi, The man did not disappear because he did not want to deal with you at all, he had another person he was looking after as well. You booked your accommodation for only one person, but turn up with 3 persons! So we had to try accommodate you at a very busy time with Maadi Cup, which we managed to... More

We have stayed at the Asoen Court for many years. It used to be great - clean, well maintained and very helpful owners. We gave the new owners the benefit of being new for a couple of stays but we won't bother staying again.
