Comfortable room, well appointed and good bed. Noisy guests in th next room woke me at 4.30am which wasn't ideal. Had spa bath, but I didn't use. Weather was shocking - but heater kept the room pleasant, though a little noisy.

We stayed here while on business because they are members of the ASURE group who we belong to. The receptionist was very average in her service. The room was a reasonable size and very clean. It had a decent kitchen area, and the bathroom was also reasonable in size. There was a shower over the spa bath, and it had...

Stayed in room 2, nice enough. Walked into town for dinner so great location. The bed was horribly uncomfortable though. We both kept waking up due to the bed. I even heard someone from another room snoring! I would not stay here again because of the bed:(

My wife and I spent one night only in a standard studio. Very clean, spacious and comfortable studio with a small kitchenette; good mattress for a good rest! Friendly welcome from the staff at the reception; easy and quick check-in. Overall a "smooth and easy" stay!

Ivy & Ke the owners were outstanding in that when we booked into our room there was waiting for my wife a lovely birthday card, a box of chocolates and a beautiful bottle of French bubbles. The rooms were extremely clean and tidy and ours in particular very spacious. We would stay there again and have no problem in recommending...

We hired 3 rooms, 2 on the ground level and 1 on the top. All quite roomy units with very large bathrooms. Service on check in was a bit frigid. For the price paid per unit, the beds need to be upgraded. Slat beds.

We enjoyed out one night stay here, we found the room very clean and tidy , and we loved the outdoor table with two chairs where one could sit and enjoy the late afternoon Autumn sun. The room had good quality curtains which made the room nice and dark for sleeping and we found the bed comfortable. An ideal motel...

Second stay here but this time in a two bedroom unit. Very large with a balcony outside the lounge and each bedroom had its own small balcony which gave you a small view of the lake. All the amenities were here including a spa bath, was very modern and exceptionaly clean. We initially had trouble with the WiFi but the...

I am a frequent visitor to the Taupo region and this is the first time that I have had the pleasure of staying at the Ascot Motor Inn. It is very affordable, well appointed, quiet, comfortable and nice and warm. The room was very well laid out with a nice single spa bath to top it all off. I ordered...

Very impressed with how well run this motel is. Very clean, well serviced, good bed and lots of little extras that show how much the owners care about running a good motel. Highly recommended. It was quiet and about a 15 minute walk into central Taupo.
