Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

First the pros: The room is spacious, Parking was available. The location is quiet and close to town centre. Shampoo and conditioner were good quality now the cons: The room was not clean. There were water and other marks on the glass enclosure to the shower and on the walls around the shower. I washed the tub before using it since there was some sort of grime on it. There was a rust mark on the toilet. The floor in the bathroom was not clean. I washed the dish and coffee cup and cutlery that I used because they were not clean. The microwave is v old. It is one of those that you rotate the dial and have to use the timer on your phone and then manually turn off. The worst part of the stay, however, was the bed. The mattress was shot. It was lumpy...I could not find a place to sleep that did not dent and that I did not feel springs. When I sent a message the next morning the manager came up and referred to a mattress topper but there was none. It might have made a difference, but a mattress topper would not be sufficient to make this mattress comfortable. It needs to be replaced. I envy the people who commented positively on their stay at this hotel. Clearly, they did not stay in room 8.

Clean, modern (compared to many in NZ), lovely room. My kids were so happy at the sight of our room no.7 on the upper floor! Convenient location walkable to some shops. If you’re hunting for by the lake views u can consider Boulevard Waters (stayed there too) but this was more than sufficient for us. Contented! We will be back!

This motel was clean, quiet, comfortable and spacious. Very comfortable bed, nice and warm unit. Off road parking close to unit. Only a short distance from the town. Good value. Sky TV with several channels. Well soundproofed from units next door.

Our one-night stay for two in Room 11 on the 2nd floor is close to the street. sound is amplified so if you are a light sleeper recommend another room. A low noise like a washing machine was constant throughout the night.

The room was spacious but very dusty on the window sills. The room was well equipped and had a heat pump. The tv is small and up high which is okay for 1 night. We thought we were getting a downstairs unit which we booked but instead got an upstairs unit. Why contactless check in I don't know as many other motels are happy for a normal check in. The manager was not a happy person and unfriendly. The car parking was tight even for a small car.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a bigger carpark, if you want a view ask for an upstairs unit.

Really decent motel accommodation. Rooms are really spacious and tasteful. Guy at reception was really friendly. Room had a Spa Bath, Sky TV and a decent Kitchenette. There was also a small outdoor patio which is quite private. A few small gripes. The Bed was dreadful. So uncomfortable. This might be a matter of opinion, but there are a few proceeding reviews which also mention this. The water pressure is poor. Takes 25mins to fill the Spa Bath. Shower is also pretty poor. There are car parks outside the units, but the allocated one to your unit, may not necessarily be the one directly outside of it. Mine was tucked around the corner, where the car park directly outside my unit was occupied by a family who made a heck of a lot of noise loading their car and kids from 5am-5.30am. Not ideal at all. Also note the car park area is pretty tight. All in all a decent stay here at Ascot Taupo. Got a really really decent last minute price, which meant the little niggles were not that dramatic. Certainly if the price was higher, I would take it all into consideration.

A good stay with all amenities being well appointed. Although it has off-road parking, tight parking for bigger vehicles is not for the faint hearted. It is within easy walking distance to the main shops.

As my husband and I have mobility and pain issues, I booked their accessible unit on line. Upon arrival at 7:30 pm we found that we had been upgraded to an upstairs unit with a shower over a spa bath. As all other units were taken, wehad no choice but to struggle up the stairs and struggle to shower the next morning. The unit itself was very nice, a good size and had good facilities. My advice is, that if you need and book the accessible unit, follow up with a phone call to check that you do indeed have it.
