The accommodation was beautifully presented, clean, tidy and easy access for walkers/wheelchairs. I visited and was super impressed with the staff and the accommodation. They even allowed my auntie and grandmother to...

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...

We do apologise for the hiccups and as you are aware it was the weekend and first thing on Monday we had both the electrician in and the WIFI technician. We are pleased to advise that after a delay in obtaining one there is a new WIFI booster installed which should alleviate future problems for all at the Motel. We...

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!...

Stayed in Taupo overnight to catch up with friends. Chose this motel due to the location to the town. I have stayed at a number of motels in Taupo over the years and this would definitely be the best value I have received. The cost is below average for the town, yet the value would be in top 20% of...

Clean and tidy, comfortable motel, a short walk to town. Across the road from lakefront is a great location, especially for summer. Well equipped kitchen, great shower, and a spa bath. Friendly (new) owners. Outside deck/verandah gives extra space for warm weather.
