Review of Aspen On King
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 6 Feb 2024via mobile
We arrived early and were warmly greeted . The manager was so helpful and showed us where our accommodation was and allowing us early entry .
Spacious and scrupulously clean , chairs and table directly outside and across from our accommodation,
Were well kept gardens and large chess area- beautiful!
So far in our trip we stayed at 5 motels and hands down this was far and away the best !
Date of stay: February 2024
Room Tip: We were on the ground floor - recommended!

The price was reasonable however with small touches the stay would have been more comfortable. The beds need a replacement as too soft, showers dated and joinery a bit tired. However, the rooms made up for this with nice furniture and fittings. The manager was very nice and welcoming. The place was close to everything but isn’t everything in timaru. Recommend ground floor units.
Overall if you have to stay in timaru and I have many times it’s ok.

Room tip: Ground floor

Stayed at Aspen on King for 4 nights with my Ma and we absolutely loved it. Just a hop into the village and such a great unit too.

We had one of the wheelchair access units which meant it had a big open wet floor shower, it was great for Ma that it wasn't a shower over bath situation. The wee kitchen was perfect for cooking a meal at night and the amenities were ample. Hosts were great also, very obliging 👍.

Beds were very comfy and pillows very soft. Full size fridge and had a front and back door which created a nice breezy flow through. Television with DVD built in and tones of great DVDs to borrow from the reception.

If you want friendly service, comfortable accommodation, daily cleaning, in a quiet area of Timaru, close to the botanic Gardens and walking distance to town, then I would highly recommend Aspen on King. I recently spent 6 nights here ,as my husband was in the local hospital for 4 nights, and the help I received from Sandra and Aiden was exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble and they managed to make a very stressful time bearable. Loved the spa bath to relax at the end of each day!

Stayed for only 1 night, nice living area but shower and toilet in one minuscule room, never seen a room so small, had to step up to get into shower, which had steel base, water pressure so strong it was actually hurting to shower (couldn't turn pressure down), shoulders hitting walls when sitting on toilet, loud fouled mouthed builders everywhere cursing, swearing etc, try to get downstairs room as upstairs pretty ordinary, like the outdoor seating area outside unit

So I travel a lot for work and I've stayed lots of motels, but this was great.
Super clean (and I'm fussy), tidy. Netflix. Sky. Spa Bath. Quality toiletries. Lazy boy sofa and all I needed. Did I say tidy!?
Great service and awesome stay. Whatever people were complaining about years ago, it's fixed now. Stayed in back lodge. 100% coming back.
