We found the motel was fine, comfortable and had everything we needed. Especially good was the internet. We didn't watch TV so that was not a priority. We did find it strange that we were given a double bed (it didn't worry us as we are sisters), as we may have been work colleagues. Also the money was taken out... More

We had good rooms upstairs (no good for anyone who doesn't do stairs, or for young children but fine for us), very comfortable beds, extremely clean, and well equipped kitchenette. Our hostess was very helpful in finding us the name of a restaurant we had visited previously, and offered to make a reservation for us. Nothing was too much trouble... More

Nice enough Motel but very small double beds & not particularly comfortable. If you're looking for somewhere to relax for the night & watch a movie this isn't the place. They advertise having SkyTV but they only have the sport channels. Haven't come across a Motel/Hotel before that didn't have movies.... almost false advertising. Won't be rushing back...

Sorry you did not enjoy your stay.We do have other Sky channels but a survey of our guests indicated they were not interested in having the movie channel as most movies were repeats according to them anyway. Incidentally the beds are either King,Queen or Single as we do not have Double beds. Understand you will not be rushing back perhaps... More

We are sorry that you found the unit too hot. Normally there is a breeze from back windows to the front windows and the fan in the living area is sufficient.Unfortunately you struck a particularly hot time during your stay without any breeze. Kind regards Keith & Phillippa More

this motel is about 2 km walk from the tourist centre or a bit closer to the town centre. It looks really nice, the rooms are good, comfy bed, wifi and cooking facilities all worked fine. Spa bath was nice. Large rooms. The rooms were a bit warm, but maybe there was an adjustable air conditioner, not sure. The room... More

Very centrally located motel just across the road from the Lake. Whilst the units do not have lake views, there is a large balcony from which you can enjoy the sunshine, a glass of wine and a view of the lake. The units are modern and clean The motelli9ers were excellent.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Executive Motel opposite the Lake at Taupo. Although I didn't have a view from my room it was quiet and sheltered. Spotlessly clean and well serviced every day. Spacious and well appointed. Lovely to be able to walk to restaraunts and activities. Host was a caring charming man! Would definitely recommend.

Staff at Executive Motel are friendly and caring, go out of their way to provide great service, and always greet you by name. They offer a very good corporate rate which includes a spa bath - perfect after a long day on the road.

Thank you Lauren for writing such a positive review. We understand after a big day you need to have a quiet place to stay. So often you are still working into late evening so if you have a favourite unit we really try as understand the importance of the familiarity. It gives us a thrill to see your cheerful face...
