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.
Great accommodation and staff amazing. Very accommodating and friendly. We were that comfortable we booked a second night to stay. Highly recommend checking this place out of you want politeness, comfort and close to shops. Thank you for looking after us will definitely be back!
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.
The hotel was perfectly adequate for our two-night stay. The kitchenette was well laid out with everything we needed available. The spa bath worked well and was enjoyable to soak in. The shower was warm and powerful enough to wash my hair in. The thing I didn't love was the bed - it was quite small and too soft for me - I prefer a firm bed that supports me without bending. The TV had a good selection of channels but was quite small. Overall, it was a good hotel for its price. It was very clean and the owner was very friendly and professional.
We only spent one night in Taupo on this trip, and stayed again at the Ascot Motor Innn, where we have always been very comfortable. This stay was up to our expectations. We had a studio room on the upper level, with views down to the lake. There is a small shopping centre opposite the motel and both the lake and the town centre are in easy walking distance. The room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean, with everything we needed to self-cater.
Great place, this is about the 4th time we have stayed here. Spacious rooms and nice and quiet. Everything you need. Thanks for the upgrade too! It is nice and centrally located and the staff were very friendly and helpful too.
Only a short stay of one night and we were out early but adequate accomodation... although there was a light out over kitchenette so made it a bit dark in that area. A little bit far to walk to town. Comfy overall
This motel is ideally situated in a quiet area with a handy cafe across the road.The room was so spacious and the bed super comfy. Nice and clean too.Staff were very accommodating when we had to extend our stay.
