Ascot Motor Inn Taupo

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We checked Trip Adviser reviews of Taupo and decided to stay at Ascot Motor Inn for our one night while passing through. It proved to be an excellent decision, as the room was probably the best value for money we have experienced for some time. The unit was very well appointed and felt very comfortable immediately. Ascot Motor Inn well done, you will be our motel of choice when in Taupo next time.

Accommodation at its best!! Fantastic location, private, quiet & cosy rooms. Exceptionally clean. Friendly, helpful hosts, much thanks Ivy & Ke. We will be returning 😊 Highly Recommended to all. Overall a superb stay.

We stayed for 1 night with friends after booking online. The hotel was well situated, clean and a reasonable price. The bed was warm and comfortable and the room a good size. The bathroom was a spacious and the shower was roomy.The parking around the back could be a little tight if you need to get a big vehicle in to park 10 or 11. We would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Taupo, and we will be returning in the near future.

A wonderful sunny motel. Very nice staff. Comfy bed and little courtyard. Loved it ! Great kitchen with very nice utensils.microwave etc. Bathroom shower large. Good tv on wall. Would have liked it a little lower though. Plenty of units to choose from that are quiet. Complimentary sweets in office and charming ponga sculptures on exterior. Will certainly go back. Very helpful smiling staff.

We are traveling for 6 weeks around New Zealand this is one of the best motels we have stayed in clean,bright,up to date good position only a10 minute walk to restaurants ,super market 4 minutes.Really good managers very helpful.

Stayed for 1 night and could not have asked for a better hotel at this price. Friendly welcome upon check-in, lovely size room that was well equipped, clean and tidy. Thoroughly recommend staying here and I’ll certainly be back when in Taupo next.

Good locality, good room but old fashioned appliances eg Microwave still a dial up model. Shower (pathetic though it was) is over a bath that makes it difficult for the short or elderly Shower was particularly disappointing in a lack of pressure. Advised management who didn't really realise it spoilt our stay. Otherwise a comfortable unit. Didn't turn on the TV so cannot comment. I believe there is better value for your dollar in Taupo

Enjoyed our overnight stay, excellent heating, was a cold Taupo day when we arrived, parking great, and a very comfy bed. The free wifi was excellent. Staff very friendly. Clean room which is important to us. Thank you

We stay here on a regular basis for work but this time we combined the trip with house hunting as an investment. The rooms are comfortable and roomy enough. Good bathroom and shower. Comfortable bed. Small kitchenette. Heating was good but on a chilly night we left it on low. Sky TV Parking fir unit 11 is a bit tight otherwise good parking for each unit. Some rooms have a view of the lake and the mountains. Friendly helpful reception. Good rates.

Comfortable room, well appointed and good bed. Noisy guests in th next room woke me at 4.30am which wasn't ideal. Had spa bath, but I didn't use. Weather was shocking - but heater kept the room pleasant, though a little noisy.
