I stay at the ascot Park hotel every three weeks while on a business trip, travelling most of the lower South island.
It is by far, the best hotel I have stayed at, and because it is so good I often opt for two nights here instead of staying in Wanaka.
I always stay in the new wing, room 100 or similar. The rooms are large, warm, modern and with everything I need. Good sized office desk, plenty of plugs etc. The beds are very comfortable and the unit as a whole has a great layout.
Although the room is fantastic, the thing that always brings me back is service and the resturant. The food here is 5 star +! Such a surprize on my initial visit, a very pleasant surprise. Fish of the day with pan fried scallops, vegetables, mussels all for $28! Although the resturant is dated and could do with a more modern look, the service is impecable and food delicious, fresh, immmaculatley presented. They will change anything you like and often dont charge for this luxury.
My room has a large seperate bathroom, complete with shower and spa bath, heated mirror etc. Appliances- ie iron, kettle and toaster are all known brands and good quality.
Room has two lcd tvs- One in the bedroom and one in the living area.
The complex has everything you need all under one roof- bar and resturant, conference facilities, mini golf course :), gym, swimming pool, filtered water etc.
I ALWAYS look forward to staying here and a lot of other people must feel the same as it is often out of vacancies- despite its large size- so book in advance to secure a good room.
