Stayed here recently. Room was a good size with kitchenette, lounge/dining area. Spa bath didn't work. Found a hair in the bed & many in the bathroom! After lifting the toilet seat, I noticed it hadn't been cleaned properly. Housekeeping needs to be improved. Other than that, happy with the accommodation.

Stayed 1 night on the way to Christchurch. The room was a good size with a separate bedroom and the bed very comfortable. The room was at the back of the motel which made the room very quiet as it is on a main road. The bathroom had a spa and a separate shower and the water pressure was great. The breakfast was very good value. The staff were all very helpful and would definitely recommend this motel.

Stayed in this establishment for 4 days in early February to attend a function. Booked it sight unseen from overseas.We were not disappointed it was very comfortable. We were given a unit with a seperate bedroom and a spa in the bathroom. We were intrigued to find three waste bins in the unit- rubbish, recycle and compost. We had not seen thgis in other motels in NZ.
The only critisism we had was the lack of security on the bathroom windows. They were the open out from the bottom type and their opening restrictors all malfunctioned. Meaning a person outside could open the windows to such and extent a person could enter.
Would recommend this motel to anyone wanting accommodation in Timaru.

Room Tip: Go for a room away from access stairs to the upper floor units.

Used to passing through Timaru I was surprised to find this accommodation on King Street more than anticipated. In town for work these premises fulfilled all of my requirements. A great room, very clean, and absolutely divine food from their restaurant. The hostess was very friendly and it is very quiet - away from the main road but close enough for a walk to a large supermarket.
This accommodation was a pleasant surprise and I would recommend people to stay.

The place to stay when you are visiting or passing through TIMARU. Let Cathy E. and her staff look after you. You will have everything that you need provided for you. Very modern accommodation + it's only walking distance to town. Professional and friendly staff. Countdown is just down the road for shopping and the TIMARU Botanic Gardens are only up the road for afternoon walks + a dairy in the corner for that cooling icecream after your walk. I have really enjoyed my stay at the ASPEN ON KING. I would definitely come back. Thank you Cathy and staff!
A MUST - to dine at Tussock restaurant - Fantastic food & room service!
