a beautifully presented and maintained property, immaculately clean with tasteful furnishings. The upstairs studio was comfortable and spacious with gorgeous lake and mountain views. Loved everything about it.

Excellent stay at this motel.The only thing we were disappointed in which was due to a new boiler system (not the fault of the motel itself)was we didn't get to enjoy the lovely big spa bath as the water wasn't hot enough to have a hot bath or shower. Overall the room was extremely clean, comfortable & had lovely decor.... More

We rang at 10.30pm and arrived at midnight to lovely warm rooms with all the comforts of home. The manager accommodated our party of 8 at a moment's notice late at night. Everything was better than expected and at a fair price.

Accommodating and professional owner greeted me late in night. Very high standard of spacious tasteful studio with everything one could want and a spa bath. Quiet spot away from main highway. Excellent linen with high quality towelling especially. Would certainly stay again.

We had a lovely stay at the Ascot Motor Inn. Graeme and Sandra were very lovely hosts. Our unit was clean, spacious and the kitchen was very well equipped. Just one little niggle - we found the kitchen bench space was very limited and a cupboard to store our food would of been nice. Bathroom was big and the spa/shower... More

We stayed in a 2-bedroom unit. Nice, clean and close to the centre, but really cold. There's only a heater in the living room and one in the bathroom, none in the bedrooms. It was really cold at night. Recommended for warmer season.
