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.

The biggest spa bath I've seen in a room!! Everything you could possibly need for a stay. Immaculately clean and staff really helpful. Good price which we picked on spec and would thoroughly recommend this to stay.

Love this motel. They thought of all the little extras - including a throw blanket on the little sofa while I watched TV. Lot of dishes, and anything you needed. New fluffy towels. I would recommend this to all friends and family. I am NOT getting paid or a family member. Just two Americans traveling through New Zealand and happy...

I can't fault this place, fantastic room, great location, quiet, comfortable and everything you could want for a great stay. The only complaint is 1gig wifi maximum, I tried to watch one Horse race and pretty much used it all. I know it's a '1st world problem' and I probably sound like a spoiled brat but seriously, wifi is wifi...

Checking in was a breeze until they advised us they were putting us in a Wheelchair friendly room. Does management have a responsibility at the time of booking? (-) as this was a wheelchair friendly room, all plugs and cupboards were at a low level in which we were for ever bending all the time. (+) We found the room...

This motel is one of the better ones I have stayed at. Very well equipped and great value for money. As far as the Asure chain this is definitely worth a stay, even a view of the lake. Will definitely be back.

I read really great reviews on here before booking, and it seems I didn't have such as good as experience. Mainly I found the bed super uncomfortable, was really lumpy and bowed in the middle. So i got all of 3 hours sleep. Also there was no shower gel left in the dispenser and as it was late at night...
