My second stay at Executive Motel, and once again, the host was lovely. Nothing was too much trouble. We arrived early on our motorbikes, we could park right outside our room. As before, the room was spotless and very comfortable. Great location, with a short stroll to the shops and bars, but far enough away that it is quiet. I... More

Lovely room. Very clean and comfortable.The room was very spacious and well equipped. Good parking space. Internet could have been better, our room was quite away from the reception. Around reception area was very good. Staff very helpful. Away from the main road so no traffic noise.

Thank you for your kind review. Yes the Wi-Fi was very slow at times. Spoke to our communications man as the office was also not right and very slow. He changed something and it is back to normal. Sorry for the inconvenience. Kind regards, Phillippa More

This little motel is in a great location central to shops and restaurants, views of the lake and nice tidy rooms all with a little shared balcony. It has a really welcoming and comfortable feel, staff were extremely friendly and understanding when we didnt make our check in time. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to visit taupo.

We stayed at the Executive for two nights. In a beautiful location right across the road from the lake. Philippa was a lovely hostess. Room was well appointed, clean and comfortable. Would definitely return. A+++

Lake Terrace is a good spot. You can go for a swim in lake Taupo just over the street and you get the beach towel for free, and it's just a two-minute-drive to the center werde you have restaurants and Shops. Nice room.

This was a beautiful location very conveniently located just 10 minutes from the CBD, and very clean and tidy. We were well taken care of by very hospitable hosts. The unit was serviced to a high standard each day.

We arrived early and the owner was busy but dropped what she was doing to welcome us and get us checked in. She gave us a quick run down of town and the best places to eat. Also provided information on things we needed to see before leaving the area. Our room was great and we had a great stay.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Executive Motel! Location was exceptional, right on lake Taupo with lots of great restaurants and amenities close by. Would definitely recommend this property. The staff were very friendly and had helpful suggestions for dinner and activities including coupons for a lovely nearby restaurant.

The Executive Motel was lovely and had everything we needed. Very comfortable beds and lovely clean rooms. Loved the little balcony and outdoor areas outside each room, beautiful for a quiet sundowner. Also loved the little sachets of ground coffee and plunger in our room, what a treat! Philipa (the owner) was so helpful and accommodating, even juggling her bookings... More
