        • Family with children
          7.4

          clean and tidy and and very good size

          Very noisy could do with some sound proofing

        • Single
          9.2

          Booking was simple and the staff/owners went out of their way to select a room that was appropriate for me - I have a walking disability. I'd happy stay at the Ascot again.

        • Family with children
          10.0

          It was lovely and clean and staff were very welcoming and friendly during our stay

        • Family with children
          7.8

          Convenient location right next to the Taupo lake and the shopping area.

        • Family with children
          10.0

          excellent services and comfort, perfect clealiness. We'll come back in this motel for the next stop in TAUPO.

        • Family with children
          10.0

          Everything very good

          Only that when we ordered a meal from the motel we were charged more than $10 which we couldn't see in guest book. However the food was excellent!

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          clean, comfortable, convenient

          No complimentary bisciuts or hot chocolate sachets.I alsays enjoy the free bickys and hot chocolate if I arrive late.

        • Family with children
          8.2

          The staff were helpful and friendly. Very clean and tidy.

          Nothing I did not dislike - arrived at 9.10 and left in morning at 8.00am.

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          We love our room! It was spacious, comfortable, clean, relaxing, and all that we wished for. Among all other accommodations that we had throughout our trip, Ascot Motor Inn is the best. All the staff there were very attentive and friendly. Laundry facility is conveniently available. We're thankful to the staff for taking care of our laundry outside their duties and made sure that we had our laundry properly done before we checked out. Thank you so much for the hospitality, and we will strongly recommend Ascot Motor Inn to our family and friends for future stay at Lake Taupo! :D

        • Family with children
          7.4

          Although there was no laundry facilities in the room, Stacy and Kris were very nice and allowed us to use their main laundry room which was very near our room. That was very convenient for us.

          There was one hot water tap and one cold water tap. The hot one was too hot. The cold was too cold. Would be much better if they have a tap that can allow adjustment to the temperature of the water.

        • Couple
          6.6

          It was very clean the staff showed us to our room and had turned on the heater to warm up the room before we arrived. It was a good size room and had everything we needed.

          Our spa bath didn't work. The bed was uncomfortable and noisy, I guess the springs in the had gone.

        • Group of friends
          7.8

          Don't be fooled by the motel label, the owners were very professional and polite, and you're just across the street to a fine butchery and supermarket. The apartment was well equipped with kitchen and living room. We used Taupo as a base for some country-side trips.

          The Internet was a sad joke. Keep refreshing the page and it will eventually work.

        • Family with children
          10.0

          The room was very spacious and suitable for a family of four as we didn't feel crammed in. The room was very clean, tidy and modern.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          Clean and comfortable room, marvellous views. Enjoyed our stay.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          Nice & quiet, good size rooms, friendly, value for money, close to cafes, & shopping.
