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.

We were very happy with our accommodation. The room was large, clean and tidy with a sneak peak of the lake. The weather was a hot 30c during our visit and it was nice to have a portable air conditioning unit in the room that was up to the job. Sky tv was a bonus. The manager is really friendly and an all round nice guy. Shower pressure could have been better but this will not stop us returning because everything else was really good.
