We rented the 3 bedroom suite for 3 couples and a toddler. The owners helpfully emailed us before our arrival to ask about our preferred bed configuration, and everything was perfect when we arrived. Check-in was a breeze, and although we had to take our bags up a small set of stairs, the owner was right there helping us carry...

Room was adequate and beds very comfortable. Shower arrangement very strange and not particularly safe as it is a fair step up into it. You have to actually get into the shower to turn it on. Could do with a safety rail to hold onto. Otherwise it had everything we needed. Thought it a bit overpriced.

Lovely motel, easy to find. Our room was actually a small suite with the he bedroom separate from the kitchen/ lounge area. Very comfortable bed. Cooking implements were provided if we had felt inclined to do.

Travelling across the Sth Island of New Zealand with a family of 4 (both kids <8yrs), Timaru was a stop over en route to Christchurch. That said, compared to modern, more expensive and more cramped accommodation of Queenstown and Christchurch, Aspen on King's spacious and retro-fitted out accommodation (two bedrooms, separated out cooking and living/dining room, large bathroom) coupled with...

We stayed here on our way to Dunedin. The room we stayed in was really tired and a bit smelly. However it was clean and the staff are friendly. It's a bit out of the city centre so if you want to walk to restaurants etc, I wouldn't recommend this place.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write your review. We were very disappointed to read that your room was smelly - unfortunately the weather is not always the kindest to us, and sometimes closed windows and doors are required which is not the best when it comes to cooking smells from previous guests. We would of loved...

The rooms were nice although there was light coming around the top of the curtains. Sleep was quiet (always a plus). If you have disabilities, ask for a ground floor room. Ample parking and kitchen etc was well appointed. Cold breakfast delivered to your room for $12.50
