I had the pleasure of staying at the Ascot in Invercargill for several days. No lack of heating in room and bathroom and you have it how you like it. Plenty of room to spread out if working and rooms are very neat. Lighting is a bit dull to work and read with but could be fixed with a good... More

have stayed here many many times when travelling to Invercargill. Whilst its a little bit out of the centre of town, its size, and facilities make up for it. make sure you take advantage of their stay 10, get 1 free offer.

I stayed 2 nights and really enjoyed Ascot Park. The first night we had a meal from the public bar and the second in the restaurant both fantastic. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. What really impressed me is the true southern hospitality. The older ladies in the restaurant know how to work the place and they are a... More

We stayed at the Ascot for three nights in one of the motel rooms located to the rear of the property, mid July. We found the rooms spacious, the bathroom had a very good stand alone shower with great water pressure. A spar bath and generous shower and bath goodies replenished each day. The room had central heating and an... More

Stayed at the Ascot in Invercargill for business during April. The hotel is an old open style hotel which is very welcoming and cozy. The rooms were huge and the staff were so willing to assist in every aspect. I stayed for the first 3 nights in the main building (hotel) which was wonderful. I had to return a few... More

Had a lovely time here at the Ascot Park Hotel. Lovely clean and tidy rooms and well maintained. We were here as part of a group listing and had two buffet meals provided which were absolutely beautiful. Lovely breakfast as well and the embers make an awesome latte. Would definitely stay again or recommend to others.

Thank you for taking the time to post this review. My team here are most disappointed that your stay failed to meet expectations. It is of concern to us that you believed to have booked a Hotel room when in fact you ended up in a Motel room. It is important that we identify how this happened. Please call me... More
