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. Rooms are comfortable and always spotless, one of the cleanest establishments I have experienced. Staff are... More

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...

We were running late to our arrival at Executive Motel - we called to say we would be there after hours and they kindly agreed to leave our keys out for us and also gave us a great recommendation for where to eat a late dinner in Taupo (Dixies Browns). The hotel is a bit older but is in a... More

Our room was spotless and very-well appointed...we were located in room 6, the last upper room to the back (believe me, this is where you want to be..very quiet and still with views of the lake from the deck outside). The hosts are cheery and very eager to sort you out with suggested activities and places to see. This accommodation... More

Loved this place, it was conveniently located, walking distance to all the stores and restaurants but distant enough to be quiet and peaceful. Great owners, the lady was a pleasure to deal with and helpful plus the room was great! Loved the spa! Definitely would recommend this place as the perfect spot to base yourself when in Lake Taupo!

If you wish to cook yourself, DON'T stay here. If you wish to relax and enjoy your own private spa, it definitely is your best choice as it has JACUZZI Tub that soothing you either physically or mentality.

Thankyou for your review. Many guests cook here we only request you do not cook foods that have strong odours. Some of these odours linger and we have to deal with these unpleasant odours before letting further guests stay. This is a concern for most people as some strong spices and fish infiltrate the furnishings. We have a number of... More
