Loved our 2 nights at the Ascot Motor Inn, friendly and professional reservation process, prompt checkin and what a great studio room. Nice small lake view which was perfect. Bed really comfortable, immaculate presentation of room and inventory was excellent. Great location with easy walk into the village with restaurants very close by. Will be returning when we make our next trip to Taupo, this property has everything you need and more. Thanks for making the end of our 2 month 'jaunt' just right!!

we stayed 2 nights in a studio room, comfortable, clean and spacious. Owners very friendly and helpful. Conveniently located, a short walk to the lake and town centre, with a small supermarket directly opposite. Can highly recommend.

Room Tip: ask for a room on the 2nd floor with a view if possible- lovely views over Lake Taupo and Tongarriro...

The room was clean, spacious, modern, and had everything we needed! it was our honeymoon and the hosts made us feel extra special with rose pedals, chocolates, etc. They took time to talk with us and show us where things were in the town. This was one of our favorite places to stay during our two week vacation!

New owners are fantastic, rooms are SPOTLESS, bed comfy, breakfast exceeded expectations and set me up for the day,. Very obliging and will definitely be going back there on my next trip, and also spreading the word.

Room Tip: upstairs has a stunning view of the 3 mountains, you can sit on the deck and watch the sunset......

My travels are often arranged fairly last minute, so I use reviews given by previous guests on trip advisor as a helping hand selecting a place to stay. It works rather well I reckon.
The lady at the front desk even arranged a parking place for my motorcycle right outside my room, even though this park didn't belong to my room.
Room itself was modern, clean and well appointed. Happy to recommend for a traveller who wants a quiet nights' sleep.

The rooms were clean, spacious and well appointed with a few thoughtful touches such as renewal of sachets of ground coffee each day. We had an upstairs room from which you had a view of the lake and mountains in the distance. There is also a really good cafe, Zest, just across the road. Downside is the cost of WiFi. Free first 100mb but then 7 cents per mb after. Not a problem is you are there one night but if your visit is for longer, you end up paying.

The new hosts had only arrived the day before us but could not do enough to help. If they did not know the answer to a question straight away they quickly found out. On our last morning they even drove us to the coach stop. The accommodation was of a good standard being clean and roomy. The location is well placed for both the lake and the town. A slight problem is WiFi which has to be paid for and seems to be used up rapidly. There are however over 50 T.V. channels. A relaxing and pleasant place to stay.
