Ascot Epsom Motel
Ranked #6 of 8 Hotels in Epsom
Reviewed 16 January 2012

This place was very very average. The room is fine, able to be slept in, not dirty at all, but the motel was very sneaky with deals to lure you in. The 'Spa Pool' it claims to have, is only available if you select a significantly more expensive room, It is run down and very very basic. In saying this, it was very convenient to Newmarket and was a roof over our heads. It had plenty of information available at the front desk for tourism all over NZ not just Auckland, which was very appreciated.

Room Tip: If you can afford it, opt for the room with the spa, it would definitely give the experience a boost...

The motel is a 5 - 10 minute walk from the Newmarket shopping area and access to Auckland center was easy via bus or train. It is one of several motels in the same road. The rooms either have a small couryard or a balcony which is a little unusual for a city motel.

The rooms could do with a facelift but they are comfortable enough.

This is really one of those places that falls distictly into the "Average" category.

Room Tip: The 1st floor rooms have balconies and the ground floor rooms have a small courtyard.

My sisters came to visit me in Auckland, so rather than trying to all cram into my tiny apartment, we rented a couple of rooms at Ascot Epsom. We chose it because it was close to Newmarket for shopping. A little bit of a walk, but OK. The rooms were... fine. The beds were comfortable enough, but there were a couple of cigarettes burns on the bedspreads. Likewise, there were marks on the some of the walls, and the bathrooms were not nice. The shower stalls in particular were of the metal-pan, formica-wall combination which I thought had been all ripped out by the '80s. And they were a wee bit grubby.

One of the rooms we rented had a spa pool in a small courtyard. It was thankfully pretty clean, but it was a half-sized pool and, more disappointingly, it seemed to be set to go no higher than 38 degrees. If you rent a motel room with an outdoor spa pool in the middle of winter, you want a nice HOT spa pool!

On the plus side, the proprietor was friendly and even upgraded one of the rooms so that our two rooms were side by side.

I have always found this motel to be very clean and tidy with improvements being made all the time to inside and out. Owners very approachable and are prepared to go the extra mile for their guests. Will certainly continue to stay there when in Auckland.
