Review of Aspen On King
3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 27 Dec 2019via mobile
Hi

Stayed at the Motel for 2 nights, 24th & 25th. No services on the 25th, this was not specifically mentioned in the Booking.com confirmation.

Seems like the place was really nice, 2 things that I really didn’t like was the wet room shower and the bed was collapsing ( I weigh 64 kgs)

They give you 2 mini soaps for 4 people for 2 nights.

Don’t look forward to the owner being friendly, went to hand the key in and just got a grunt.

My partner, 4 month old son and myself recently stayed due to the Rangitata flooding. Great service & lovely suites. They made it seamless at such a last minute & rushed booking. Also upgraded us on the second night to a spa bath suite at no extra cost which was great. Highly recommend :)

When I booked with then with my debit card, which has funding they were arrogant with me over the phone and by email.
I work for a travel agency. But I have never felt so insulted for someone like this people. They were very racist. I will not recommend to book with them at all.

Room tip: DO NOT BOOK here, they are awful people, no respect at all

Using a visa debit card is inadvisable when booking online. Why you used a third party booking agent -rather than the agency voucher system available threw your employer bewilders me. Procedures for the third party booking agent were followed on all three Eftpos transaction platforms. All failed - Refer to issuer - Seek other form of payment. As you would not let me book online for travel without payment, why should accommodation be any different. If we do not have a valid credit on arrival day, the appropriate actions are started with the travel agent.
Credit cards are required to give recourse if damages are incurred .

The best most accommodating hosts we have ever encountered. After our assigned room was not quite what we needed we were offered a bigger room at no extra cost. Lots of lovely extras such as little cookies with the coffee and tea and lovely bathroom accessories. Super quiet heat pump and wonderful recycling options. Highly recommend this place!
