We had the one bedroom, shower studio unit. It was immaculate, spacious and had everything we needed. Greeted in a very friendly and efficient manner. The motel was not quite as close to the center of Taupo as we had hoped, but on saying that it was certainly not far out of town.

I booked here for 2 nights for April 2021, I booked a 1 bedroom suite. Upon reading a review about the hotel cancelling bookings at the last minute, I called the owner to check that our booking was secure and to check if they were a winz hotel. He advised that they lied to this customer as they don't accept group bookings. When I questioned why they would lie about it, just dont accept a group booking, simple, don't accept the booking and cancel at the last minute then lie about the reason. His response was to cancel my booking!! Honestly this is just nutty, when travellers book accommodation we expect to have honest dealings with the accomodation provider and not be lied to or have your booking cancelled at the last minute.

This review is a false statement, as our motel is one of the few motels that NEVER accepted WINZ emergency house guest to stay. The reason your booking has been cancelled, because when you booked on booking.com, you have provided an invaild kiwi bank debit card, however when we requested an update of your card details, we never got back from you, As in the system of booking.com, your booking will be automatic cancelled if you have not responded to our request.

We booked this motel months in advance for 16 people. A few days before we had a phone call to say our booking was canceled as they are now a WINZ motel. This left us in a position unable to get accommodation for us all at another place. ALSO another booking we had for May, when we rang to check our booking, the manager said no they were not a WINZ motel, the half an hour later rang and canceled our booking for 3 people. What on earth is going on here. This motel needs to be removed from booking.com as they seem to cancel at the last minute. As a WINZ motel I believe preference is given to WINZ over traveller's. Not very impressed at all.

The Ashbrook Motel is in a good location with a lot of the centre of Taupo walkable from the motel. We were met with a cheerful welcome and found our unit to be very clean and very modern. Our unit (number 10) was rather dark but had good lighting. To be recommended.

We stayed for two nights as a family of four in a two bedroom unit. The unit was spacious, quiet and extremely clean and tidy. The spa bath was an added bonus. Nice touch to have a separate bin for recycling in the well appointed, totally functional kitchenette. The location was in a quiet street and convenient to the big yellow supermarket and the main shopping centre. Even though they were fully booked we heard no other guests. The host was friendly, helpful and professional and he and his staff did a great job. We definitely would stay again. The best rate was booking directly with the motel.
