“All we could wish for”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

We have just completed 5 weeks' travel around NZ, staying in 16 motels. Aspen Court Motel has been the best of the lot. So roomy, quality fittings, clean, and an extremely comfortable bed.

Hello Alison R

Thank you for your glowing review of our motel. It is really nice to hear people like you compare Aspen Court Taihape so favourably against other motels in New Zealand. We aim to be at that top level for comfort, sleep quality and cleanliness all for an affordable price. To get your review is very comforting that we are doing things well. Thank you.

Breaking a trip from Hamilton to Wellington saw me stay one night here. The unit was large, exceptionally clean, with a wall mounted heater to keep me cozy. Wifi is available once you pick up a free voucher from the reception desk.

Very pleasant staff. Great to have a spa bath after a day on the road. Good selection of tv channels. No issue with noise, a sound sleep was had.

This motel has more amenities than most and a very competitive price. We stayed for a night in May 2012 and were pleased that the room had a 2-person spa, kitchen, refrigerator, plenty of room and was very clean and tidy.

Hello sam h and thanks for your positive review of our motel.

Yes the TV's in our older units are a little dated and we will be replacing these very soon (2012) with new 32 inch LCD TV's.

We are glad to hear you had a great stay with us and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Every aspect of staying overnight at this motel was excellent. The free internet connection & spa bath were an added bonus. Great value for money. Highly recommend.
