Very impressed with how well run this motel is. Very clean, well serviced, good bed and lots of little extras that show how much the owners care about running a good motel. Highly recommended. It was quiet and about a 15 minute walk into central Taupo.

The biggest spa bath I've seen in a room!! Everything you could possibly need for a stay. Immaculately clean and staff really helpful. Good price which we picked on spec and would thoroughly recommend this to stay.

Love this motel. They thought of all the little extras - including a throw blanket on the little sofa while I watched TV. Lot of dishes, and anything you needed. New fluffy towels. I would recommend this to all friends and family. I am NOT getting paid or a family member. Just two Americans traveling through New Zealand and happy... More

I can't fault this place, fantastic room, great location, quiet, comfortable and everything you could want for a great stay. The only complaint is 1gig wifi maximum, I tried to watch one Horse race and pretty much used it all. I know it's a '1st world problem' and I probably sound like a spoiled brat but seriously, wifi is wifi... More

Checking in was a breeze until they advised us they were putting us in a Wheelchair friendly room. Does management have a responsibility at the time of booking? (-) as this was a wheelchair friendly room, all plugs and cupboards were at a low level in which we were for ever bending all the time. (+) We found the room... More

This motel is one of the better ones I have stayed at. Very well equipped and great value for money. As far as the Asure chain this is definitely worth a stay, even a view of the lake. Will definitely be back.

I read really great reviews on here before booking, and it seems I didn't have such as good as experience. Mainly I found the bed super uncomfortable, was really lumpy and bowed in the middle. So i got all of 3 hours sleep. Also there was no shower gel left in the dispenser and as it was late at night... More

Great value property and very quiet at night. The best pillows and a very comfy king size bed. Clean and tidy with fluffy towels and a lovely deep spa bath. Our studio also included a kitchenette. Within close walking distance to town. I'd definitely consider staying again.

After a problem with our vehicle had to stay the night in Taupo so checked Trip Advisor and found the Ascot. It was very handy to everything in Taupo, spotlessly clean with quality furniture and fittings. The heater had the room very warm and cosy in no time and if you were feeling chilled there was a blanket on the... More
