From start to finish, our stay at the Executive Motel was amazing. After an easy check in, we went up to our room and oh my gosh were we impressed! Our room was very clean, modern and spacious. Great motel to stay at!

My journey started in New Plymouth and after some long hours I had the four hour drive to Taupo, my tiredness was abated by the spectacular scenery, once in Taupo I checked into the Executive Motor Inn, from the beginning service was outstanding!! I was met with a friendly smile and very informative intro to Taupo, I was instantly made... More

I highly recommend this motel, the hosts are lovely, warm and happy to do anything to make your stay that much more comfortable. Our room was immaculately clean (which is rare in motels/hotels!), comfortable and nice and quiet. A big plus for Taupo in winter - a really good wall heater so we could keep our room pleasantly warm without... More

We had an awesome time here. The room was clean and warm. Great service. The only drawback was we got downstairs room and there was noise at night when people are upstairs especially using taps and spa.

Pick from Internet search so never sure what you will get but Executive motel was really good and better than promo pics. Everything you need to be comfortable and if you want to do your own food facilities good - though we didn't use them. Best spa bath we had in any motel on North Island. Definitely recommend

My husband recently spent 2 nights at the executive motel in Taupo, we throughly enjoyed our time there, the unit was modern and clean. The owners were a very pleasant couple and upgraded us to a superior unit and were very helpful in pointing out the attractions around Taupo. The motel is situated within walking distance to the centre of... More

Very clean, neat & everything you would expect in a motel. Right near the waterfront, shops & other amenities (about a 10-15 min walk). The ladies on reception were extremely kind & helpful Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to stay without having a booking. The beds could be a little softer...

We really enjoyed our stay, we didn't want to leave. Our room had everything we needed, free wifi and a beautiful view of the lake. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel for your stay.

This is one of the best motels I've stayed in. It was immacuately clean, modern, in a convenient location, free unlimited wi-fi and beautiful views of the lake. We ate at the Mousetrap Restaurant/Bar just down the road and it was also great. I really recommend the Seafood Risotto.

Really comfortable place stay on our 3 night visit to Taupo. We had a 7 month old baby and the hosts were super helpful setting up a travel cot for us and making us feel very welcome. The suite was VERY clean! And came with free (sometimes slow) WI-FI. A good walking distance to town, but expect a 15 min... More
