We stayed for 1 very wet night in Nov 2013.The helpful hosts assured us our room had a good view of the mountains but we certainly could not see them through the low cloud !! The room was large,comfortable and well equipped although parking was a bit further away than we found in other motels,a bit awkward lugging heavy cases up external stairs in the rain.It is located a bit away from the town centre so a longish walk if you don't want to take the car but there are some eating places and a supermarket nearby to compensate.We had problems connecting to the wi-fi on our smartphones so the manager allowed us to use his computer to send e-mails home to confirm our safe arrival in NZ .Would certainly stay there again,hopefully in better weather !

We stayed here two nights, see tips for room as well. Excellent value for money. There is some traffic noise from the main road and railway line so we were pleased our rooms further away and with a lovely balcony overlooking the mountains, with two chairs and a table.
Very warm and friendly welcome from hosts, nothing too much trouble. The weather was good as well which always helps.
The room very good size, well fitted out with a table, chairs, kitchenette, good comfortable king size bed.
The bathroom well fitted out with a walk in shower and works well. Limited space in the bathroom and could do with an extra shelf.
We had the optional continental breakfast which was available at 12 dollars per person and this suited us and was convenient.
If you are looking for a motel to stay I compared to paying more for a hotel then we would definitely recommend this Motel. You can hear the freight trains going by but this did not worry us and we quite liked seeing them go by.
I would have no hesitation in staying here again.

Room Tip: We had requested an upstairs room with a sea view and king bed. We received room 19 which also had a...

Arrived at about 8:00 at night. Travelling by motorbike and very wet. Was well looked after and no hesitation at the state I was in. This is my definite stop point when travelling through. The rooms are superb. Clean and warm and the hosts are friendly with a great sense of humour. Thanks again.

We recently spent 3 nights here and it was disastrous...........from the weather point of view!
Luckily, Pam and Peter were such welcoming hosts that the experience overall was still good and if we ever return to this area, then we would be only too happy to stay her again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the rear in order to minimise traffic noise.

We spent 2 nights here. It has an excellent view of the mountains. The room was very clean and plenty of space. The kitchenette had all you would need. This is an excellent value for the price. Everything is within a short distance walking or by car.

Stayed 2 nights at beginning of November. Had a lovely room upstairs with a view of the mountains. Comfy bed, well equipped kitchenette, lovely staff, very clean. Supermarket for supplies very close by.. Considered Aspen Court to be good value for money. It is a short walk to town for restaurants. I chose it based on Trip advisor reviews and I wasn't disappointed. Pictures of studio room were exactly as it appeared.
