The Ascot is a very good Hotel. Set on the outskirts of the City of Invercargill, it boasts excellent parking, great food, a cozy bar and excellent accommodation.
I stayed in the newly completed wing of the hotel and the suite was not only immaculate but beautifully appointed. The rooms are air conditioned with generous bathrooms, bedrooms and an excellent seperate sitting room and kitchenette where you could easily entertain guests. The only very small disappointed was the shower pressure but I do have a preference for a strong, powerful shower.
The Hotel itself is very good. We hosted a conference and the food and beverages were excellent. The conference team were very good. Dinner was reasonably priced and delicious as was breakfast. I really cannot praise the Food and Beverage team more highly. The conference facilities were excellent.
The property boasts a full gym and generous indoor heated pool. You will need a rental car if you stay here as the centre of Invercargill is a good ten minute drive. Alternatively, there are taxis available. I would strongly recommend the property and believe that you will have a great stay here.
The only slight issue was the reception team who seemed perfuntory and disengaged. What a difference it would make to be greeted with a friendly smile and a real willingness to help. I was made to wait on several occassions throughout my stay and it was not obvious why.
Having said that, the other staff were superb. A great Hotel!
