The motel is probably quite new. The rooms are nice with very good beds. Bathroom good and well equiped. The manager (owner) was really nice and serviceminded. She gave us good information about the town and the lake. There are sittinggroups with tables outside the rooms.

The motel is perfectly situated to explore the Taupo area. The room was clean but we had nowhere to sit out close to our room which did not have a lake view; there seems to be variation in the facilities of rooms which is not reflected in different prices.

The room was very clean with a well equipped bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. The front car park is furnished with patio furniture for guests to enjoy the excellent views across Lake... More

Stayed for 3 nights with 2 rooms. 1 of our rooms allowing easy access for elderly guests in our group. A nice location, about 10 mins walk to the main part of town. Nothing glamorous but modern enough, a little bit noisy during our stay as construction works were going on right next door but it wasn't a problem at... More

All accommodation in Taupo is expensive, however we found executive motel to be great value for money. The motel is in a good location just 10 minutes from the main centre and the room was clean and spacious.If I'm ever back in taupo I'd definitely consider staying here again.

The first few minutes I walked into the reception and talked to the lady host, Phillippa, I felt the warmth and welcome instantly. She is really nice and has a lot of local knowledge of Taupo including restaurants, art galary..etc. The room I stayed(room 10) has a fantastic view over Lake Taupo on its valcony, it is so beautiful either...

Great view, comfy bed, comes with spa bath, kitchenette, Sky TV, secured car park and FREE Wi-Fi what more do you want... Moreover our host Phillippa was outstanding and the customer service we received was top-notch during... More

We were really looking forward to our night away, husband had something on in town so after a long drive and waiting in town from 8am in the cold I headed over to the motel at 1.30pm. The man behind the desk clearly showed his disappointment I arrived half a hour early and said that check in wasn't until 2pm.... More
