Location to town and attractions was good. Although beds were comfortable, the 2nd bedroom was way too small for 2 beds and 2 people with luggage. Very friendly staff. Not great privacy. Others could easily look into your room from the front and the back common area meant that smokers and socialisers were right outside our door - not great. Room was clean and in good working order.

Thanks for your review. Just to remark on the comments you make for other readers. The 2nd bedroom we advertise as smaller Twin. these are more family units but the beds are adult singles.. The main wardrobe is in the Master bedroom. If you need larger two bedroom accommodation rates you pay are much higher or you would need more apartment style .Regarding privacy Motels by nature and design you have your neighbours close. In saying that your room has net curtains at the front ranch sliders and the back door is opaque glass so you have privacy if you choose. Thanks for staying with us. Regards Ashbrook Motel.

Unexpected surprise!

Pros: location, modern amenities, very clean
Cons: better checks and cleaning under the beds by hotel staff
Location: a short walk to town, close to the AC baths, a stroll down to the lake
I thought the price to stay was very reasonable and I was expecting something a bit run down for the cost, I was PLEASANTLY surprised to turn up to a modern, clean, tidy motel that just suited our family perfectly. Loved the location and the facilities were very clean and modern. Only issue I have was finding a deodorant bottle, birthday card and lip gloss of a previous guest under the single bed in the lounge. I would highly recommend this place to others.

Happily surprised

Pros: Everything - friendly and helpful staff, roomy, spotlessly clean and comfy
Cons: No, all good
Location: Beautiful lake Taupo. We loved Huka Falls Jetboat
Booked the superior family suite - and it was spotlessly clean, roomy and very comfortable. We'd go back any day. Fantastic customer service, friendly and helpful. We arrived with a trout that my son had caught - Ashbook stored it and rang around to find us a restaraunt who would cook it. Thanks for a great stay.
