Stayed here with my partner and two teenage daughters; from the moment I made the reservation the experience was great. Friendly, helpful staff on the phone when making the booking, and a great suite - or apartment room as they call them here - when we arrived. Really good amenities on-site including pool, spa, gym, complimentary Wi-Fi (500MB/day with 3... More

Quite often stay at the Ascot and very seldom disappointed. In fact the experience is normally that good that when something isn't quite as one would like it stands out as irritable which from my point of view tells me to settle and shut up if that makes sense. The facilities, ambience, quality of food and service are great but... More

We stayed recently due to a flight disrupt from Queenstown. We arrived after 9pm to check in which was super fast and efficient and then proceeded to the bar for a drink a some dinner - we were quite hungry and wondering what we might get at that time of night. My partner had the burger which he loved and... More

A very nice experience. The ambience was pleasant and the staff helpful without being intrusive. The menu offered a good - but not too wide - a choice. The food was nicely prepared and presented. The deserts in particular were innovative and well-presented. This is very good 'restaurant-style' dining - good food at reasonable prices.

The Ascot seems to keep on growing in size; just when you think you know the place you stay next time in another wing. The rooms are well size; good layouts; great bathrooms. The in-house restaurants are good for breakfast too. The public bar has surprisingly great bear on tap!

Luckily chose this hotel whilst visiting Invercargill. Took the 1 Bedroom apartment option which had the queen bed in the room but the added sofa bed in the lounge. Great kitchen facilities and updated bathroom with the rooms being extremely quiet at night. Breakfast was good quality and the staff were really nice. We were a little worried on the... More

Situated on the road on the way to Gore. The place is very large with different types of rooms. You can get apartments, motel style rooms or normal hotel rooms. I was in an apartment which was basically a one bedroom unit with a kitchenette and lounge dining area. There is a stove top and microwave, no oven. The fridge... More

I opted to stay in a motel unit of the Ascot Park, for a few reasons. First, I like being able to go outside without having to walk down a long hallway or use a swipe card to re-enter. Next, I like the option of bringing food and cooking my own meals in my room. Therefore, most of the time... More
