We had a fabulous stay at the Executive - the staff were great, the location fabulous and despite being on the main 'strip', the room was really quiet. The location was ideal, near to some really nice restaurants within walking distance and our room had a small view of the lake.

Modern, clean, roomy and great facilities in a 'superior studio' room. Good, up to date kitchenette. Included an 'in-bath' spa which we used and worked well. Welcome after a long day on the road. Included wifi. Was across the road from Lake Taupo shoreline. We weren't looking for a Lake view but our ground level unit was in a line...

Appreciate your comments. We have a variety of beds some say too hard some say too soft (such a personal choice). If you pass our way again we will be sure to give you a firm bed. We got a new bed in unit 8 recently and some regulars came back and asked for Unit 8 and told me the...

We stayed one weekend at the Lake Taupo and were happy at the Executive Motel which is directly at the lake (well, only the road is in between). What makes this motel so special is the personal touch to the owner getting good advices for the region and learning more about the area. The center is in walking distance, wo...

Clean, quiet and quality accommodation...adequate facilities, parking and good speed on the free wifi. If you want to be on the fringes and not in the central area the location is ideal with plenty in the way of local restaurants and watering holes together with being on the main road around the lake.

We were 3 guys on Harleys looking for good rooms handy to town, and off street parking. We arrived early evening, parked our bikes around the back of the motel, then enjoyed the facilities - each room has an outside table (which we made use of) before heading off for dinner at a bar recommended by our hosts a short...

Philipa was super friendly. She gave us tons of tips for things to see. And even checking out a bit later was no problem. The rooms are absolutely clean. Location is right by the water and walking distance from the center. Loved our stay here.

A friendly, welcoming motel on the shores of the lake and about 1km out from town centre.An easy walk of 20 minutes. Typical motel with good size, clean room plus kitchen area and rather dated, yet adequate, bathroom Plenty of free parking. Overall recommended as value for money.

Philippa is a delight, friendly and helpful hostess. The rooms are as you would expect for a Motel of this age. They are a little tired however they are clean with fresh linen and comfortable for what they are. The bathroom is ageing and although tired, the water pressure and temprature in shower is excellent - exactly what was needed...
