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

We had two nights over Easter,at the Ascot Motor Inn . Initially we had only booked one night as we were moving on , but we needed another night a few days later. We thought we would see what it was like before making another reservation. Our experience on the first occasion had us hurrying down to the office to... More

Another wonderful stay here again. A favourite stop for us in lovely Taupo. The room was again very spacious and exceptionally clean. Has everything you could want. Bathroom was large. Plenty of parking. Friendly owners make you very welcome. Top floors have a lake view in most cases. Not far from town, a short walk if you are energetic. Can't... More

From the moment of booking to checking out, Sandra and Graham were extremely helpful and knowledgeable regarding the local area. A complete pleasure to deal with. Would definitely book the accommodation again with its close proximity to town.

We spent 2 nights (29th and 30th Jan 2015) in your two bedroom family room. It was a breathe of fresh air, beautifully presented even with toys for our Grandchildren who we had with us. At a stressful time for our family who were traveling north for a sudden funeral - your home away from home was a beautiful stay... More

We stayed in a two bedroom unit on the ground level. It was quiet, clean, had a well appointed kitchen and looked new. The location is a short drive, or perhaps 20min walk to the restaurants in Taupo (we didn't actually walk, so I can't be sure). Although our unit was close to the road, we had no noise issues.

Stayed for two nights, it was a great place to stay, good location and very easy to find. The owners were lovely and friendly. The unit was spotless and very well kept. Would definitely stay there again!

I rate this place for two primary reasons: 1 - the hosts / owners, and 2 - the room facilities. Re: the hosts Graeme and Sandra. They were very, very accommodating at all stages from pre-booking to check-out (and post check-out). I'm not sure whether they do it as routine but Graeme took me to the airport, after I'd already...

We stayed for two nights and found the hosts welcoming and helpful. Comfortable beds and good facilities meant we could enjoy Taupo and relax at the end of the day. Great for families and the bed was set up for our third child before we arrived. I would highly recommend this accommodation for families.
