i was in taupo on business with a work colleague 13th to 15th June 2012 and as usual bookings were made for us by our consultancy. Ascot Motor Inn, is a Qualmark 4 plus self-catering motel and a member of the Asure Group, a motel chain, that offers loyalty accommodation dependant on the number of nights stayed. The motel complex is compact and comprises of a two by two storey accommodation blocks, (on studio type, one apartment type) an office/laundry area and carparking. Ideal in our case for business as there are no children facilities of pool on the site. However families are catered for with the one or two bedroom apartments on offer.
I found my unit much to my liking, especially as we arrived in winter, Warm, spacious, large soft bed, full kitchen, spa bathroom, Zenbu Wireless Internet and 50 Channel Sky TV. I also ordered cooked breakfast for the two mornings I was there. I found Murray & Jocelyn Woofe, our hosts, to be most helpful. I asked Murray about the age of the complex. I think construction began in 2006, which would certainly explain modern fixtures and fittings. As Taupo does get very cold in winter, I had to wash night ice from the car every morning but the vista was remarkable. Calm lake clear air, sunny days (while were there), snow on ranges and mountains. Check them out!More
