Reviewed May 8, 2014

Stayed for one night on the 4th May, booked the luxury double room. Decor was fresh with all modern facilities and lots of space. Bedroom although not large was comfortable. Highlight was the bathroom with double spa bath, large shower and good heating and lighting.
Free Wifi and morning paper was a bonus.
Location is just on the edge of town a good walk for most people, but easy to drive and navigate around.
Will definitely return again in the near future.

Room Tip: Double spa bath a must.....

everything was perfect, wide and quite room, very clean. friendly and attentive staff. perfect place for any kind of traveller. the only negative point is that is not in the centre of Timaru, but one of the best restaurant in town is just next door !

Room Tip: upper floor if you don't have heavy luggages

Whilst we only stayed one night we were very impressed with this property. The service we received right from check-in to check-out was great and this included the in-house Restaurant "Tussocks". Food and service in the restaurant was great. We stayed in one of the newly refurbished luxury rooms and understand that they are part way through a full refurbishment of all rooms. Will definitely be staying at the Aspen on King next time we are in Timaru and would recommend this property to anyone looking for a place to stay in Timaru.

On our honeymoon my wife and I were touring New Zeeland. Unfortunately I fel ill and was hospitalized during our trip. After an emergency trip to the hospital in Timaru (not part of our itinerary...), my wife and I cam out of the hospital not having slept for 36 hours. Even though the sign outside Aspen on King said "no vacancies" we were desperate to get som sleep. We went inside to the reception and Cathy went out of her way to set us up with a room for us to catch a couple of hours sleep. We have never been in more need of hospoitality at this point and Cathy tuned out to be a saint! After having slept wonderully in their comfortable beds for a couple of hours we headed over to the restaurant to fuel up before headin gout on the road. The food was excellent and Cathy and the staff really went the extra mile to help us put our itinerary back on track again. Before heading off we settled the bill, but on account of our medical emergency Cathy refused to charge us for the room. She and the whole experience on Aspen on King really saved our honeymoon - we are forever grateful!

We were so impressed with everything here that we extended our stay for an extra two nights. Room was so relaxing and clean and the manager was so accommodating and went out of her way to assist. Can highly recommend to all. Excellent location.
