“Fabulous base, awesome fill-your-own-spa”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

Stayed a couple of nights and already planning a re-visit. Friendly hosts, great location, quiet which was fabulous given it's so central (we walked to yummy brunch and dinner places). The spa was glorious, bed super comfortable. All very good.

Room Tip: Possibly further back is good but we were about room 10 so quite close to the road and it was quiet...

We needed somewhere with full access facilities and picked Ascot on Fenton. Mike was really helpful when I phoned to book, answering all my questions. Three days before we were due to stay my father ended up back in hospital. I phoned and Mike was happy to change our booking to a unit suitable for 3 able bodies. Then there was a brief period of confusion when it looked at though my father would be able to travel, so I phoned Mike again and he was happy to try and arrange something to suit our needs, then I has to phone back again (poor Mike) and it was back to just 3 for a unit. Finally made it to the motel, Mike was as nice in person as on the phone, so obliging. We had a lovely couple of days, my mother really enjoying the private spa pool each night. We will definitely be staying there again (hopefully with Dad next time)

I arrived in Rotorua really late, tired and hungry. The only motel along fenton street that had any lights on was Ascot on Fenton. Mike the owner took me to my unit and I asked where I could get something to eat. Being so late there was nothing close by. He made me a snack. Bacon, avocado, tomato and cheese toasted sandwiches. How cools that!
My early morning breakfast was egg benedict with smoked salmon, juice and toast. Really nice.
My one bedroom unit had a nice big CLEAN private spa pool and a fabulous CLEAN shower. I was really impressed. I will return. Thanks Mike.

Room Tip: If travelling solo the one bedroom unit is ample

We stayed at Ascot on Fenton on the recommendation from travellers we met in Whitianga.
We were two couples travelling for 19 days in NZ, we were on day 4 of out trip. Hilary greeted us in Reception and suggested one of their large 2 x Bedroom Apartments. Two levels complete with own wonderful big spa pool in a covered courtyard. We had everything we needed.
Our laundry, no problem, Hilary saved us having to worry about it. Fantastic!
Mike enquired if we needed any help in deciding where to go and what to see? He arrived back at our apartment with a handful of discount vouchers for us and spent at least 30 minutes helping us to plan our afternoon and the entire next day including where to go to eat. Excellent!
We thoroughly recommend Ascot on Fenton to anyone who wants a great stay in ROTORUA.

Room Tip: Large 2 x Bedroom Apartment, two levels with own big covered courtyard spa.

This was our 5th return trip to stay at Ascot on Fenton, Hilary and Mike are great hosts and always make us feel so welcome. They go out of their way to tell us about any new activities in Rotorua and always ensure that they supply us with discount vouchers and their Restaurant recommendations are allways great
The Apartments are always squeaky clean and very well maintained, the beds are some of the best we have ever slept in and the bed linen is fabulous. The large fresh water spa pools in the covered courtyards are just amazing.
Many thanks for another lovely stay we will keep returning.

Apartment style rooms, which can be taken as a two room or single room dependent on needs. Decor is tired, but you get what you pay for. Helpful guy on the front desk who makes sure any excursions are booked. Good location on the main motel strip a short walk from town.
