“Clean, Modern Fantanic Motel with Hotel Room Feel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

My partner and I stayed at the Ascot Motor Inn as a last minute decision, on arriving we were welcomed by the host who was more than willing to accommodate our request. The room had a double and a single bed, and good kitchen facilities.

We had a fanastic sleep the beds were new and comfortable, and the mattress and linen fresh and very cosy.

The bathroom, kitchen area & bedroom had modern furnishings and felt very homely and clean. They have a seperate sky decorder in each room, so you have all sky channels available to you.

The location is good, a short walk to the centre of town. You can see the lake from the hotel and it is only a 1-2 min walk before you actually reach the water. The hosts were great at providing recommedations for eating out and ensuring that they met our requests.

I would be more than happy to stay at this establishment again, and recommend it anyone who is looking from the hotel room feel in a motel.

The only thing downside was that it was a rather warm and humid day and the room was on the warm side, but there was a good fan available.

Very very helpful. Booked our boat trip for the next day for us and also our evening meal at Dixie Browns Restaurant (which was FAB). The apartment was very clean, could not fault it at all. Wished we could have stayed longer. Thank you Ascot Motor Inn.

As with other motels in the Asure range we found this motel to be spacious,comfortable and well appointed. The standard of cleanliness was very high and the hosts were most friendly and welcoming. Views of the lake and mountains are stunning from units on the upper floor. We were lucky to have one of these after requesting it. Main shops,supermarkets,restaurants are a 10 minute walk to the town centre but there are other options closer to hand. A good place to stay!!

I stayed at Ascot with my husband and 10 month baby. We were welcomed very warmly and any requests we had (extra towels, dinner recommendations, more milk, ordering breakfast) were quickly attended to. Breakfast was brought to our apartment at the requested time and was very much enjoyed. Our baby loved swimming in the spa pool in our bathroom (minus the bubbles!) We found Ascot to be quiet, very comfortable and enjoyed a restful night there on our journey through the North Island. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.

We had a very good experience at the Ascot Motor Inn with a very warm welcome and friendly and helpful communication with the staff at reception. The unit was spotless with modern facilities - our unit had a large corner spa bath which was fantastic. We had plenty of warm bedding (and pillows) and the rooms remained cosy and warm during the night. It is located fairly close to town, although I admit we drove around during our stay so didn't try walking to town. I can't comment on the cooking facilities as we didn't self-cater but everything provided was of a good quality - including decent wine glasses that weren't cheap and nasty. The main living room (where the kids shared a fold-out sofa bed) had full Sky TV and our separate room also had a wall mounted TV (with reduced channels). Our non-smoking unit was downstairs and we didn't have access to the outdoor seating area out the back - I'm not sure whether that was only for smoking units? Overall noise from other units wasn't noticeable at all except at night when a guest in the room above us came home and clomped around in high heels on the bathroom tiles which was loud enough to wake us. The unit was serviced during the day so we came home to a clean room at the end of the day which was great. We will return when we come back to Taupo again.

We stayed at Ascot Motor Inn last Saturday 1st September with my parents. After my Dad dropped us off there I went down to reception to ask where they Restaurant was that I had booked for Fathers Day dinner. The man behind the desk was extremely helpful and gave me 4 vouchers for 1 free drink each at the Restaurant and gave great directions of how to get there. He then told me that there were a lot of events on that weekend so most tourist places will be packed, we had no idea there was anything on so it was good to be told this. Great trip and very helpful staff!!!
