Stayed 8 nights in early March. Our unit was very comfortable, quiet and spotlessly clean. The lovely sunny balcony with lake views was perfect for relaxing and watching the Ironman. Easy walk into town and to restaurants. Just across the road from the swimming beach. Keith and Phillippa were very friendly and helpful hosts - nothing was ever too much... More

Only stayed one night. Motel is lovely and spotlessly clean. Great hosts, places they recommend are excellent. Motel is fair walk to centre of town (about 20min) and as we were pressed for time we opted to drive.

I had a weekend away and chose this motel because of its location. I was not disappointed. It was just over the road from the Lake and only a 20 minute walk from town. The room was clean and in good condition. It had a great spa bath and a functional kitchen. The staff were friendly. Even though it is... More

Great little motel that suits all sorts, clean, light and comfortable, handy to town and right across the road from the lake. They were able to cope with our very late arrival and basically made sure we had everything we needed. Recommended for all travelers.

Stayed at the motel for the last three years on our way to Napier for the Art Deco Weekend. We always enjoy our stay, with very accommodating friendly hosts. We will be back again next year. Thank you once more!

Booked relatively late for our long weekend. Had the back unit but still sunny and light with good facilities, clean and comfortable. Friendly hosts and excellent location straight across road from the lake. Will stay again. Didn't use any of the extra offerings like breakfast.

We enjoyed two nights at the Executive Motel this week. The hosts made us very welcome on arrival and each time we returned to the complex we were greeted with a friendly smile. The complex had a clean well kept presentation, the room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. We'll certainly return and recommend to others.
