Stayed whilst touring nz and found the owners very friendly and welcoming and the room excellent. I stayed in a 2 bedroom and cannot fault. Comparing it with other motels during our trip, this was the best.

Nice to be met in reception by Murray & Jocelyn who were very friendly. Our room was spacious, clean, bed comfortable & warm, (tho almost freezing out side). However the heater fan was a bit noisy. 50 Sky TV channels, a good size spa bath. Really easy to use microwave. About 5-10min. walk to town, but they will shuttle you. We were in a ground floor unit but I imagine the view toward the mountains from the 2nd floor would be amazing.
When leaving I advised Murray of a blown bulb & loose toilet seat & he said he would get on to it straight away. Good service. Would be happy to stay again.

Room Tip: Get an upstairs unit for the view.

I love this motel! Murray and Jocelyn the hosts are lovely. My family and I stay here regularly we come go to Taupo. We request the family units either 15 on ground floor or 16 upstairs. The rooms are clean and comfortable, I love that that have Sky 50+ channels and the spa bath is lovely to soak in at the end of the day. They have a silent dishwasher so you can it put it on before going to bed and not worry about the dishwasher noise keeping you awake. There is a small strip of shops, just across the road with a four square, café, butcher and vege shop which is great when you don't want to head into town. The lake is within walking distance. Would recommend this motel to anyone looking for a short or long stay in Taupo

My family and I have stayed in the Ascot twice and have found it to be a great place to stay. It is very clean and the rooms are large (we had a 2 bedroom family unit). The facilities are in a very good condition and well maintained. We liked the spa bath and Sky TV. We would definitely stay again.

Stayed one night in this lovely little motor inn. Very clean, tidy and spacious. Had its own little kitchenette, spa bath and lake views. Staff very helpful and cheerful. Good value for money. Overall a lovely night stay. Thank you.

Room Tip: Room on the first floor so to overlook the lake.

Roomy accommodation, TVs in every room, spa bath. Everything was spotlessly clean and room 12 was in very good order.

I liked the inclusion of a cafetiere and decent coffee. Murray was a very welcoming host, can provide fresh milk.
