Great motel close to town, very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are nice and clean. Staff helped us find local attractions and shopping, good restaurants and local places to visit. The rooms were very well priced.

Nice location, and the owners are very friendly , polite and helpful. Heater in our room didnt work. We complained this during the day and immediately we were given a small portable heater for the night, just to find out that after 30mins it switched off and we had no heater. The.next day we were given a new room. But...

Booked this place on the back of TripAdvisor reviews - fantastic! We went the lake view apartment. Only down side - road is busy and a tad noisy. Everything else perfect. Not brand spanking new, but certainly works well. If ever back in this world, wouldn't hesitate to rebook!

We cannot fault the Executive Motel - from the lovely and friendly owners to the spacious studio apartments. The rooms are clean, nicely decorated and more than fully equipped. The motel sits on the edge of lake Taupo with stunning sunsets and epic views. All cased in a beautiful white building with ample parking, unlimited free wifi and spa baths!...

Stayed in Taupo overnight to catch up with friends. Chose this motel due to the location to the town. I have stayed at a number of motels in Taupo over the years and this would definitely be the best value I have received. The cost is below average for the town, yet the value would be in top 20% of...

Clean, warm and comfortable and we were made very welcome. We will remember our stay because of the kindness and consideration shown to us by both owners and staff. We felt very comfortable and relaxed here and have no hesitations in recommending it.

Clean and tidy, comfortable motel, a short walk to town. Across the road from lakefront is a great location, especially for summer. Well equipped kitchen, great shower, and a spa bath. Friendly (new) owners. Outside deck/verandah gives extra space for warm weather.

Upon arriving at this destination we were greeted with friendliness after a long drive. The Manager advised that she had turned on the heater to warm our room as it was a bitterly cold night. The bed has an electric blanket which was just superb. She also recommended a lovely Restaurant for a quick meal. Overall our one night stay...

Thanks for your review - as the new owners it is appreciated. We are more than happy to have your room ready and comfortable for you if you are going to be late arriving. Of course we did appreciate you advising us of this to allow us to turn on heating etc for you. We look forward to seeing you...

Located right on the lake but not with a view, still a beautiful and comfortable room. Door doesn't have a lock on the inside so it was easy for our toddler to keep opening the front door with ease. Room had a good heater but was located low which again was not ideal with a toddler.

My wife and I had 2 nights in Taupo and decided to stay at the executive motel, on the waterfront. Only a stones throw from the water it didn't have the best of views as it's sideways on, but a small walk across the road made up for this. The room was clean, tidy and had everything we needed.
