Reviewed 7 March 2014 via mobile

We were travelling from Picton back to Queenstown by car & found this new well priced motel on the Internet. We were really delighted with our choice. This new motel is spacious, very nicely decorated, has an excellent kitchen & excellent bathroom~so well fitted out. Plenty of power points, very comfortable bed including an extra bed & spa bath we did not need. Lighting, design & decor was well thought out. Reception were very helpful and we enjoyed free WIFi~ always a deciding factor on where we book when overseas. This motel is a gem of a find and has an excellent Asian restaurant next door. You will be sorry if you do not stay here!!

Stayed: February 2014, travelled as a couple

Great comments and really nice to get such feedback. We plan well when we build a new complex and believe we have the best model so it is great to hear from guests whom appreciate all of the time and thought that has gone into the design and build.

We would love to see you back on West Coast again one day!

Excellent facilities, comfortable bed...huge too! Was looking forward to cooking a chicken curry in the well equipped kitchen but disappointed that we were not allowed to cook fish or spicy food:( so we had honey and ginger chicken instead!! :) it was quite an understandable and acceptable rule and we thoroughly had a fantastic stay there....would definitely stay there again and highly recommend Aspen Court Motel...in fact we are staying at the Aspen Court Motel in Kaikoura on Saturday.
Hotel receptionist was very friendly and helpful with info.

Room Tip: All rooms were much the same.

Great location, opposite the hot springs. Very good asian /Indian restaurant next door. We stayed in a 2 bed apartment which was very new, clean and spacious. . Beds were very comfortable. I would thoroughly recommend staying at Aspen Court

My wife and I stayed a night at the motel. The motel is located at one end of the street so it is very quiet. My car was parked in front of my room (it's actually a villa) which is very convenient. The room was quite big as it has one single bed and one double bed. I like the kitchenette as it provides enough stuffs for me to cook dinner and breakfast. The bathtube is a SPA one which can hold 2 persons. The room is very clean and most stuffs are very new. The staff is nice and friendly, too.

We stayed in the two bedroom unit with friends. It was a lovely unit. Large bedrooms for personal space, and nice lounge area for visiting with friends. Kitchen was fully stocked and had more than everything we needed. Very clean unit with an easy walk to shops and restaurants. Had a great stay.
