Aspen on King Motel

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We arrived early on a Friday afternoon the lovely lady on reception welcomed us with a big smile and asked us how our day was going and made conversation while checking us in. We had a few questions to where things were in Timaru and where the good places to eat were, she showed us on the map, that helped us a lot. We stayed in a Luxury unit with a Spa it was amazing, the shower pressure it also amazing. the room was very clean and quite it had a lovely balcony which my wife and I had breakfast on. I noticed their was a trampoline, chess set and a bbq their also which would be great for when we bring the family back. upon check out a very nice man was in the reception he made small talk and hoped we had an enjoyable stay which we did. many thanks Terry and Karen we look forward to seeing you In a few months.

Stayed for 4 nights. Ground floor room. Functional kitchen. Free laundry facilities, wifi, DVD library, newspapers, BBQ facilities. Lovely bathroom products, coffee/tea/milk. Aircon worked a treat on hot summer days. Very short walk to beautiful botanical gardens. Short walk to supermarket and centre of town. Chose Aspen on King as other reviews mentioned quiet stay, and it certainly was. Daily room service, clean room with super comfortable bed. Also spa in bathroom extra luxury. Grassed area and trampoline for kids.

The two bedroom units were spacious and modern. Great that it had a full kitchen. The free guest laundry was a bonus. The best part was that they were quiet with no road noise. Will definitely stay there again.

My partner and I stayed at the Aspen on King last weekend to "escape the kids" for a night! (We live in Timaru!). We wanted somewhere with a spa and we were not disappointed!! Awesome room. Amazing Spa... might have to sneak away more often!!

This motel was top notch as good if not better than a lot if hotels I have stayed in. A beautiful spa bath rounded my evening out with total relaxation. Karen and her daughter in law converted the king bed to singles so my sister and I could sleep in peace. They were both lovely ladies. Thank you so much will definitely be back here next time in Timaru.

We stayed for just one night. The check in was efficient and friendly. The rooms are very modern and clean. There is even an elevator for the rooms on the first floor - a big plus! The cot which we have ordered in advance was not there when we arrived, but got arranged very quickly. Overall a very good experience and a clear recommendation.

4 of us stayed overnight in 2 seperate units. Can’t speak highly enough of the excellent units and features. Wished we could have stayed longer. Modern units with all the little extras made our stay very co for table and wishing we had stayed longer. Next time we come by we will definitely stay here. Nice and quiet, good parking, comfortable beds, good curtains that block out any light, plenty of space, good kitchen, spacious bathroom with heat lamp. Highly recommended.

I stayed here for 3 nights while on business in Timaru. The ground floor "room" was more of a flat with open plan dining, living and kitchen, large double bedroom, and huge bathroom with a corner spa bath(ideal after a hectic day) and seperate shower. Very clean, with modern, practical furnishings. Outside there was a small area with a comfortable chair and table, looking out to the car park and garden,so that I could do dome work. Kitchen facilities were really good, with a large fridge and everything you would need to self catering. Although it was busy when I was there, it was very quiet, and I slept really well, a real luxury when away from home.

Booked for a car show for a group of 10. Fantastic place to stay! Great hospitality, we will definitely be back again next year! Owners were very friendly and catered to all needs. Great location. See you next year!

We recently had to book accommodation in Timaru for a large group at very short notice.The staff were helpful and very organised. The rooms were clean and tidy and nothing was too much trouble . Thank you
