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.

The room price didn't do justice to the room size, services and facilities they have here. Location is fantastic and parking lots available. Very clean public areas and guest rooms. And more things: Bubble bath possible, really huge tub, heated linens, complete Kitchen and stuffs, quality towels, friendly staff.

Although a little dated, the motel has been very well looked after with obvious modernizing having taken place. The rooms were very clean with attention to detail. Nothing flashy here and a bit of a walk to town but right on the lakefront and quiet.

Caloundra, Australia
Reviewed 24 May 2016

Although on the main road out of town this hotel has rooms set back from the road and are very warm, and comfortable as well as quiet. Very good shower and the added bonus of a window for fresh air. The owner/receptionist was very friendly and helpful.

We had a beautiful, spacious room with an amazingly comfortable bed - directly across from Lake Taupo. Access to the town and local restaurants is along a lakeside esplanade - an easy, flat walk - perfect!

After driving through a storm and finally arrived in Taupo at approx 2130hrs. With nothing booked we googled hotels and like the look and location of "Executive Hotel". When we got there at 2200hrs everything was locked up so we rang the bell. We received the warmest welcome from the owner Philipa. As we had been living off the grid...
