Perfect motel next to Lake Taupo:

Posted Feb 13, 2016
Pros: It is spotless and very comfortable. It is very near to the Lake where you can swim. Phillipa offers you beach towels if you wish.
Cons: It is such great value for money and so comfortable that I cannot think of anything to say. There is even a spa bath tub in the bathroom!
Location: It is on the road next to the Lake; there is swimming, eating, walking and plenty of shops. Nearby you have the thermal pools and the various walks.
This is a really first class establishment run by Phillipa, a very warm hearted and professional proprietor. The studio was spotless and well appointed with a table outside for drinks and chat. It is situated very near the lake. Phillipa is very helpful with giving you ideas about where to eat and what to do; nothing is too much for her. A memorable stay and marvelous value for money.

Good location ad accommodation

Posted Feb 12, 2016
Pros: Location, good for main part of town
Location: There are lots of trips from here, if you want Hobbiton or Mauri experience, book in advance to avoid dissapointment
Good place to stay with a pool (heated) spa baths and well appointed. Had some small issues with Internet but it proved to be the service provider issues NOT the hotel set up. Fixed within 24 hours.

Nice motel, close to beach.

Posted Mar 29, 2015
Walking distance to downtown area. Very nice, friendly hotel staff. Our guest room had an older spa tub which we did not need. Overall, the room was nicely appointed and clean. Nice little bistro table and chairs outside the guest room to sit in the sun.

Great location and price and lovely hotel

Posted Oct 28, 2014
Pros: Location and comfort.
Cons: Block out curtains to assist for a sleep in would be my only minor tip for improvement.
Location: A cruise on the lake is highly recommended.
The Executive Hotel has a great position across from Lake Taupo and close to the centre of town. The room was comfortable and clean with a lovely soft bed. The staff at the hotel were also very accommodating and helpful. We only stayed overnight but the room included a kitchenette for longer stays.
