From start to finish this was an excellent place to stay. Hosts are lovely and welcoming, room was great with plenty of space for the two bed option. Kitchen is high standard as too the bathroom. Great to and wifi. Location super, away from the noisy Taupo centre but at a walkable distance. Parking easy and 500m from the main... More

Lovely hosts, spotless room, great location. I enjoyed my two night stay over New Year, and even with the festivities of December 31 the motel was still a pleasant and quiet place to stay. Wifi was hit and miss in my room but this may be because mine was the furthest from reception - didn't bother me anyway. There is... More

Our family of 4 stayed here, in a 2 bedroom unit and had a wonderful time. It's set back from the main road so the units are much quieter than being on the lake front. The units are great and their is plenty of space. You can do your washing in the complex. The location means you are within walking... More

Last minute stop in Taupo on way back to Auckland from Wellington. Found Ascot on hotels.com but called directly and spoke with Graham and booked the room. The place was ready at 1pm when we arrived and it is very clean and well appointed. They arranged for a rollaway bed as we are 5 people and there is still plenty... More

We stayed overnight but fell in love with our room. Spacious bathroom, well lit, nice patio, spotless kitchenette. The bed was perfect; not too hard, not too soft. We had a wonderful night. We wanted to stay longer!!! The location is great. Since it is not right on the lake, the night was very quiet. It only takes 5 min... More

We stayed here for two nights and would loved to have stayed longer. Our room was on the ground floor which of course meant no view but the bonus was a lovely little private courtyard which was a cool evening retreat. The unit was spotlessly clean, very well appointed and had a very comfortable bed. Easy walk in to town... More

This is a great option for a stay in Taupo. It's not on the lake, but there are still reasonable views from the second floor rooms. The bed was a little hard for me, but would suit anyone who doesn't like a soft bed. Set in a quiet location, within walking distance of the main restaurants and shops.

I've stayed in many hotels and received wonderful service, but this is the first time I've stayed somewhere and felt that the proprietors have become friends. I don't feel like a customer -- I feel like a welcome guest in someone's home. Oh -- and the rooms are excellently appointed, the property is maintained spotlessly, and you can't beat the... More

Loved staying here as we could walk to shops/restaurants and the lake. Graeme showed us maps of the area and pointed out must-visits as we were only there for 2 days and needed to see as much as possible. We had a 2 bedroom unit which was lovely, could see the sunset from our balcony. Beds and pillows were really... More

Very good value for money, 5 minute walk (if that) to the Lake. Rooms are spacious and comfortable with a spa bath, kitchenette with stove cook top, little private courtyard with tables and chairs, TV with sky channels. Pretty happy with our stay here, the owner was very friendly and helpful upon arrival. We will stay here again. Thanks
