The owners are very friendly and the place is very clean. the room we had was spacious. Had requested a king bed but we got moved to give us quiter location so nobody would be walking past our room, which was a nice guesture but hadn't been made aware that we'd lose the king bed for a queen! The room... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in August. Philippa and her husband were extremely helpful and very accommodating and were great when advising on places to go while in Taupo. The motel is spotless, comfortable and in a great location. Would happily stay again.

Clean and comfortable. Bathroom was big with a glass shower door instead of a curtain. Room was heated before we arrived. Owners at reception were friendly and inviting when we arrived at 11pm. Will definitely go back.

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
