Clean. Perfect location. And spacious with a lovely feel to them. Comfy beds!
My parents and my brother stayed in a 2-bedroom apartment while my husband and I stayed in a studio.
he kitchenette was so well organised. Everything we need are all there. (A shout out to the cleaner, we went out one morning so early, left all the dishes in the sink and thought we would clean them when we returned. But little did we know, the cleaner cleaned everything for us. And there were lots of dishes as we all had breakfast in the 2-bedroom apartment).
It's a perfect location. Walkable distance to all the shops and restaurants. Perfect after a long drive to Franz Josef. We have decided next time when we go back, we will stay there again for sure.

My fiance and I stayed at Aspen Court for two nights. We were in NZ for two weeks total and this was our favorite accommodation of the whole trip. It was a much better stay than even the 4 star hotels we stayed at in Auckland and Queenstown. We were in Room 3, which had the jetted spa tub in the bathroom and I think it was definitely worth the extra money to get the tub. We had very active days while in Franz Josef so the spa tub was a nice thing to come back to and helped us unwind for our long drive to Queenstown. I also appreciated the email from the motel of helpful tips etc. we received a couple days before check-in. I would highly recommend staying here and when we return to NZ/South Island, we will for sure stay here again.

Pros:
- Close to everything. Restaurants, helicopter tours, basically everything was walking distance from Aspen Court.

- Extremely clean room, bathroom, kitchenette. All dishes and utensils were immaculate.

- We used the laundry room and it was also immaculately clean and being able to buy detergent from the front desk was amazing.

- Bathroom with the jetted tub and warm towels was lovely

- Parking right in front of your room

-Wifi is strong and reliable

-Comfortable, soft bed

Cons:
Really can't think of any!

Room Tip: Paying extra for the spa bath in your bathroom is worth it.

Hi Jackie D and thanks for the lovely review and great to hear you had the time to spend two nights with us. Yes the spa baths are a great way to unwind after a busy day of hiking up around the glaciers etc. We hope you are having a great time down in Queenstown and look forward to you returning to Franz

Travelling around most motels are fine - but it is those that have all those little extra touches that make the stay so much nicer. Like super helpful staff, help accessing the laundry, unlimited internet, ample towels. This motel had all those special touches and so we heartily recommend.

This is a very nice, basic motel. Modern, well-appointed and spotlessly clean rooms. Very convenient location. Right across the street from lovely hot pools and next door to a great restaurant. Sue was quite helpful in lining up local activities. A winner!

Excellent location, very clean rooms which have been tastefully decorated. The managers are helpful and friendly. Thought franz josef in general was a quaint place with the highlight been the reasonably easy walk to the glacier. I would highly recomend this hotel and if i am ever lucky enough to be in this part of the world again i would definitely stay in aspen court
