This motel is in a great location. It has fabulous views of the Lake from the balcony. There is an adequate kitchenette. It is very clean with a very comfortable bed. The proprietors are excellent. They were very helpful and willing to go beyond normal kindness.

We stayed in room 9 of the Executive Motel, which was supposed to be a "superior room". The price was similar, or more expensive to other motels that we booked on our last 2 x trips to NZ, even after a special discount we received, but it looked the cheapest. It certainly wasn't what I would call an executive room,...

As you would see from my reviews, I tend to leave very positive responses. I see trip advisor as a place to be very honest, and not have a whine. Having been in retail myself, I know that the people who get service often say nothing and its only those who get bad service who 'have a go'. We only...

We are a group of 3 girls on a road trip and stayed for one night. The room was first class as it was well equipped with a jacuzzi bath, heater and most importantly comfortable beds. We loved the extra soft touches like the cookies at the bar and the welcome chocolates. It certainly goes a long in differentiating this...

Booked this place on the back of TripAdvisor reviews - fantastic! We went the lake view apartment. Only down side - road is busy and a tad noisy. Everything else perfect. Not brand spanking new, but certainly works well. If ever back in this world, wouldn't hesitate to rebook!

We cannot fault the Executive Motel - from the lovely and friendly owners to the spacious studio apartments. The rooms are clean, nicely decorated and more than fully equipped. The motel sits on the edge of lake Taupo with stunning sunsets and epic views. All cased in a beautiful white building with ample parking, unlimited free wifi and spa baths!...
