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.

We stayed at the Ascot and were welcomed by Sandra. She was very polite and extremely helpful. We had our 15 Month old daughter and the facilities in our studio room were excellent. The little courtyard out the back was an added bonus! The Ascot was located approx. 10 min walk to the centre of town and less than 5... More

We stayed at the Asure Ascot Motor Inn for 3 nights on a recent trip around NZ. We found this motel to be simple, clean and comfortable. The room we had was small but functional, with a comfortable bed, small (but well equipped) kitchenette and tiny dining table. There is limited wifi, but what you do get works well. There... More

On arrival at Ascot we were warmly welcomed by Sandra who was so helpful throughout our stay, booking activities for us. We then also got a lift into town from Graeme on our first evening...just a 10 min walk though in case that gives the impression that big distance from town. As travelling, only small downside was that we didn't... More

We have stayed here before and were not disappointed. Stayed here on our way home from Napier. Nice tidy spacious rooms. Large bathroom and good shower or spa bath. Kitchenette and all you need. Close to lake and cbd. Cool night but heater and electric blankets and towel heater made it comfy. Stay with 10 Assure hotel/motels and you get... More
