We had the apartment room. It was great for my family of four. fantastic room with a top quality heat pump. Good location on a quiet street. Staff were very accomodating to help with a secure place to stow my trailer on their site.

Checking in the motel was simple and straightforward however the staff member wasn't exactly the most friendly person we encountered during our trips around NZ. The location is a bit far from the town centre - approximately a 20 minute walk. The rooms appeared to be very newly renovated and looked good. We paid extra for a room with a... More

We had a business trip to Taupo to upgrade an AdBlue tank. It was meant to be a day trip which started in Auckland at 4am. Luckily we had packed an overnight bag in the event things did not go as expected. The reception at the motel was great, we were cold and tired and just wanted a hot shower,... More

We stayed here in December 2015 and couldn't have been happier. The room was extra clean and the staff were phenomenal. They even bought my 1-year-old daughter balloons and chocolates for her birthday. We've never been treated so well on a vacation until staying at the Ascot Motor Inn. I highly recommend the place for anyone visiting Taupo or the... More

My friends and I stayed here recently as we trekked the Tongariro Crossing. We occupied the 2 bedroom unit and the spa studio. Both the Spa Studio and the 2 Bedroom unit were both very spacious, clean and tidy and both with a kitchenette. The unit I stayed in had bedrooms facing the road so it did get a little... More

We were only here for one night and this hotel was very comfortable. The owners were friendly and the room was excellent with a good size room for our family of five. We would definitely stay here again. There was plenty of parking and it is only a short trip into town.
