We were on the way back from a ski trip and stopped off at Ascot Lodge. The rooms were spacious and fitted out nicely. The owner Graham could not have been more helpful. Nothing was a problem for him including storing our frozen foods in his Freezer. Many thanks.

We stayed here for only one night but would differently stay again next time in Taupo. The staff were very helpful and went that extra, like a bucket of water next to the car in the morning to wash the ice off. It is a little out of the town Centre but the price makes up for that.

Very modern unit with great bathroom, superb lounge area and spacious kitchen and dining facilities. You could fit 6 people easily for in-unit dinner if so inclined. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. Staff very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

Spent 3 nights at the Ascot Motor Inn and after a dodgy hotel in Wellington it was great to have space, good facilities, warm beds and a quiet location. We had a 2 bedroom apartment with large living room, dining area and kitchenette. The 2 bedrooms were large with 2 teenage kids having their own twin beds rather than sharing... More

Hosts Sandra and Graeme could not have been more helpful! Wonderful hospitality at this top notch motor inn. Great value for money. Super clean room, comfy beds with lovely sheets and duvets, soft fluffy towels, overall a great set up for our family in a 2 bedroom suite. Lounge was comfy and the well equipped kitchen was spotless. Excellent overall.... More

The service is friendly and welcoming. A studio spa was well laid out with great kitchen facilities. The bed was comfy and warm. The only gripe I have is the extractor fan was very noisy and the heater not much better. Other than that it was a nice stay.

This is a very comfortable motel, roomy, clean and well appointed. Bed was very comfortable, spa pool in bathroom and the wifi was constant and strong. We enjoyed our night here on the way to Wellington and could not really recommend this place enough. I think you'd find it hard to be disapointed

A lovely clean unit with a great bed. Nice hosts and reasonably priced. The only fault was the shower which was pretty average but all other facilities were excellent..Very quiet at night. Would stay here again and recommend to others.

My fiance and I spent two nights here at ANZAC weekend. The accommodation was clean, tidy and comfortable. The owner was very friendly and made us welcome. We stayed in a spa studio room, which was the perfect size for us. This was on the top floor. I probably wouldn't bother paying the extra for a spa bath room if... More

We cannot fault the superior accommodation at Ascot Motor Inn. The units are exceptionally clean and spacious with very comfortable beds and tasteful modern decor. We love the view of the Lake from the upstairs units. The quiet location in Rifle Range Road is perfect, with a few local shops across the road, and also within walking distance of the... More
