Wonderful for our halfway overnight stop on route Wgtn to Auckland. Will definitely come again as often travel to visit our two families in Auck.
Also they were very happy when we asked if our small cavoodle dog could to stop with us overnight during Xmas break.
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.
Both rooms were lovely and clean, with kitchen facilities and TVs in the lounge and main bedroom. The two bedroom unit had a small enclosed courtyard with table and chairs for good weather – it was a bit chilly for sitting out while we were there.
Plenty of channels, free wifi and an easy walk to the town centre and lake front. There is a small Four Square across the road, along with a cafe. Very convenient and one of our favourite stops.

I liked that they upgraded us from a studio to a family unit because of our dogs at no extra charge. Plenty of space and just an awesome first time in Taupo.
We had an upstairs room with spa bath and a small lake view of the hot water beach. Bed was very comfortable and room very clean and tidy. Staff were friendly and accommodating. We were well informed before hand via email of what was available in the area particularly for dog owners and loved that our dog could stay with us (although we didn’t bring her this time).
Cascades is close to the lake walkway and a short walk to the Two Mile Bay sailing club where we ate pizza listening to great musicians, also dog friendly. We’ll stay again next time we’re in Taupo.
The staff was friendly and helpful. The motel is right by the lake and we enjoyed the view and walks. There is a cafe & bar nearby which is super dog friendly.
We were travelling with our dog, so this was a great find – a pet friendly motel. We let them know in advance that we would have our dog with us and they were able to send us their one-pager that had sensible regulations for someone staying with a dog. It was only $20 extra to have the dog stay with us. Our dog sleeps in a crate anyway, so the room they gave us, which had a kitchenette area was perfect.
The location of the motel is excellent, right on the lakefront so it was a lovely walk to take in the evening and in the morning. The bed was comfy, we slept really well and the room was very clean.
The shower had great water pressure and the kitchenette was well set up.
The owners/managers were so friendly and accommodating. We will certainly try and stay here again next time we pass through Taupo.

Being pet friendly was absolutely ideal. The unit was very clean and styling was fantastic. Having a door at the back of the unit was great when travelling with a dog.
Really clean, cool furniture, loved the art. We felt very welcome and appreciated being able to bring our little dog.
The units provided everything we needed. Staff very helpful; units very clean, very comfortable beds.
From footpath lake visible and it takes less than a 3 minutes walk to get to the lake, close to a hot pool streaming into lake. The motel has just a few units which gives it an extra nice feel. And of course great that pets are welcome.
A fabulous motel. Great location. Pet friendly.
Styling is great and cleanliness perfect.
We stayed as it was the last night of a 3 week trip of NZ. What a perfect end to the holiday.
As we were travelling with a dog there is space at the back of the units for a little comfort stop, easily accessed by a rear door in the unit.
A park is only a few minutes walk along the road for a doggy run.
We had a comfortable stay at this well positioned Pet Friendly Motel. Di and Tony were excellent hosts, giving us a heads up on a great place to eat which was only 450 metres away! Could have walked, didn’t 🙂
The Motel is located in short walking distance from the Lake. If you have a furry friend you want to take with you, this is a great place to stay.
We paid a second visit with out two dogs to this delightful retro themed motel. The unit was on the ground floor and spacious with everything required for a short to moderate stay. Having both a back and front door makes it particularly appealing to pet owners who can exercise their fur babies in relative privacy.
Only a short walk to the lakeshore the motel is peaceful and quiet. I loved that we could get into Netflix very easily. Excellent value.

Great dog friendly accommodation with a reserve out the door and lake across the road.
The best pet friendly accommodation we have ever had genuine caring staff, kids also want to go back. They recommended the best fish and chip shop too 100% satisfaction. Highly recommend.
Clean and tidy with designated parking. Had all the amenities we needed. Big bonus for being pet friendly and there is even a small reserve for my little dog to have a run.
Finding accommodation with two dogs is always hard but here you are made to feel welcome and told about all the good areas to take your dogs so you can enjoy a great weekend away. The place is clean, tidy and comfortable.
You won’t find a better “dog friendly” motel to stay at so I am assured that I will be back to enjoy Taupo’s sights.
The owners even went out of their way to de-ice my car’s windows so that I could see out. You won’t be disappointed if you bring your pet here as they genuinely love animals. Thank you. Five woofs from me!

We needed a place to stay with our Labrador so we booked Ashbrook and the owner Ken was accommodating from the start.
Very helpful and accepting of dogs and the motel was exceptionally clean (I initially thought a dog motel would be a bit dirty, but I was wrong). I highly recommend this motel, whether you have a dog or not.
Good value for money, clean quiet place with all you need. Super easy access dog friendly motel.
I loved seeing them actually allow animals saw a couple of beautiful dogs. Our pooch would have loved to come.
Great location, really clean and comfortable and the owner was so nice. We were really impressed by our stay and would definitely go again.
The best thing was – its dog friendly! We took our mini schnauzer and it was so easy. She sleeps in a crate so no fuss and the owner was very welcoming.
This place is clean, short walk to centre of town, the lounge is set up as a studio and the bedroom has 2 single beds so if you have kids you don’t need to get a 2 bedroom apartment to put them to bed early.
The managers are so lovely and accommodating. It is tidy and completely adequate not tired or outdated at all. It has no extras like a pool or anything but the best thing is that they allow pets. We took our 2 dogs. They just aren’t allowed on the furniture.
The rooms were so clean, everything has been modernised and looks so nice. Colour scheme is just lovely.
It’s only a short walk from the CBD and not along the noisy motel strip so very quiet and peaceful. The added bonus is that they are pet friendly so we were able to take our little dog with us.
