I liked this hotel. Spacious rooms and although not terribly modern it was a comfortable stay. Car parking right outside your own access door was very convenient for loading and unloading luggage. The other door took you straight into the hotel. We had a lovely dinner here- faultless. Breakfast was good too. The only downside was the it was one... More

Thank you for this positive and informative review. I am most disapointed that you could not get any internet signal. We provide 250mb per day of free internet in the hope that our guests will get to use it....not helpful at all if we cannot deliver. If there is a next time I would be happy to personally ensure we... More

Unfortunately we only had a one night stopover here, I would have been quite happy to have stayed longer. The rooms are a little dated but they are well equipped, clean and spacious, much bigger than many we encountered on our tour. This is a motel so we were able to park right outside our room and loading and unloading... More

Thank you for this great review. Sorry that Invercargill did not live up to expectations. I would like to think that we can assist those visiting our city with some good ideas about what to see and do..... Sometimes I think that locals are the worst at sharing what makes their city great! Look forward to seeing you in the... More

My wife and I stayed at the Ascot Park when touring the South Island as part of our 50th Wedding Anniversary. This is a splendid and well organised hotel. We had arguably the best food here during our 3 week holiday. Well done.

Stayed overnight at the Ascot Park in Feb 2014 on the way to a cruise of Milford Sound. We were greeted on arrival by the Manager and given welcome orange juice. Staff were amazingly helpful and even one of the reception staff gave my partner a lift to a camera shop to sort out a problem! Our room was very... More

Thank you for this great response. I do remember the tour and especially the Tour Leader, Sally who has been on the New Zealand hospitality scene as long as I have. It is a pleasure to host clients who love exploring all that Southland has to offer. We believe it is a hidden jewel in New Zealand's Crown. Warm Regards... More

Warmth of the welcome, cleanliness of the bedroom and the high level of equipment were all very positive features. Dinner, too, was a pleasing experience, with a good menu and some imaginative preparation. We were served by an inexperienced member of staff in the dining room - she was mainly used to bar work - but she did a really... More

Thank you for this most constructive and imformative review. Great to hear that you enjoyed the rooms and facilities but not good to hear the internet did not meet expectations.

We stayed here for a couple of nights as part of a tour group. The first thing we noticed was how remote from town the hotel was. However as a group we secured complimentary hotel transport from Southland Museum. We had a chalet style bedroom with a large double and a single bed. The bathroom was large but rather Spartan....

We stayed in the motel and it was value for money. Room was spacious and newspapers provided. It comes with a fully equipped kitchenette. I'll stay here again if I am back in Invercargill. My husband went to the sport bar at the hotel side and met friendly locals there.

Stayed at the Ascot on polytech field trip and the service was absolutely amazing. Had a chat with the manager and he was just so polite and down to earth. Rooms were spacious, clean with spotless shower. Would definitely stay there again if I do get a chance. Keep up the good work guys.
