This was a huge suite on the ground floor which is always nice. Plenty of room to sleep, dine and sit. Nice bathroom. Exceptionally clean. Just a shame the restaurant was closed and we ended up with a '9/11' meal as it was too far to walk for food.

My wife and myself have just returned from a 16 day vacation in NZ. We drove from Christchurch to Dunedin during this holiday and broke the journey up with a night in Timaru. The place has everything you want and more with the hosts only too eager to assist with whatever you needed. The room was great with everything you...

Check in was nice and easy, the room was spacious with a small kitchen, dining table, lounge, seperate bedroom and large bathroom which contained a shower with good water pressure and a large spa bath. The room was very clean, well equipped and quite which meant a good nights sleep. Happily stay here again.

She showed us to our room and even gave us a few recommendation of restaurants nearby. The motel was located in a good location where the main shopping area is...

Arrived late at night, given a cute bottle of milk at checkin. The kitchen is brand new and bath tube is huge. The reception lady saw we were tending a one year old girl, she brought a big box of toys for our daughter. It was really great memory staying here. Only one night when we drove by, but still...

Who writes these reviews? What’s the point of this anymore if the reviews aren’t accurate and informative? We stayed here and it was like staying in the basement of your uncle during the holidays. - Beds that are slanted and old. - Lights on the ceiling that should be used for sporting events – harsh, bright lights - Bedroom lights...

Lovely clean unit with all amenities - good value for money and lovely service. Very comfortable. We had the spa unit which was lovely. The bed was very comfortable - very tastefully decorated. We were at the back of the motel off the main street so it was very quiet. Conveniently located within walking distance to town. Reception was lovely...

Located close to the town centre, Aspen on King was perfect for us. We had a spa room to soak away our travel fatigue. Our self contained unit had everything we could want. Very modern, well appointed and warm. Our hosts were very accommodating. Lovely comfy bed.
