What a wonderful motel with a great view, right on the lake, and even though the views are from the side balcony, we found it a beautiful place to sit outside with a wine and watch the sun set.
Beautiful large clean room with a lovely comfy bed. Shower had great pressure and the towels were so thick and fluffy! Everything here for a great stay.
Very friendly and most helpful hosts who offered great recommendations for things to do and for somewhere for dinner nearby (even rang and made our booking for us).
Parking was good and internet worked well.
Thank You Gill and Steve for a great 2 night stay, just wish it could have been longer.
Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed for Ironman weekend. Perfect location to be able to walk to town and watch the race. The unit was well equipped and had everything we needed for our family. The owners were so lovely and helpful. Will definitely try and book again.

Unfortunately we did not have the opportunity to stay at this motel due to a huge bungle by Booking.com
We were 5 couples requiring 5 rooms which I booked at this motel 8 months prior to our trip. I made this reservation through Booking.com but they booked us in to the motel the day prior to our arrival. My confirmation from Booking.com showed the correct date. Fortunately the owner of the Executive Motel realised the error the day prior and made alternate arrangements for us at a Motel close by. It took her 45 minutes to contact Booking.com by phone to advise them of their error. We were very grateful for her assistance and more than a bit annoyed with Booking.com for not admitting their mistake when I spoke to them on two separate occasions.

Hi Denise,
I certainly well remember that disastrous day and were so pleased that we could obtain rooms for you just up the road. Hopefully next time you will just give us a call as working through a 3rd party sometimes leads to hiccups as you found out.
Apologies for the delay in replying but as mentioned before we have ourselves had some difficulties being able to respond to our valued guests.
Again many thanks for taking the time to place such a kind review

We were there over Ironman Weekend.This motel is on the race route so we had great views.
Being close to centre of town & race starting & finishing venue was another plus for us.
Our unit was spotlessly clean & had all the facilities we needed.
Gill was friendly & thoughtful & made us feel welcome.
She came over to us when we were watching the race, with a large umbrella as the sun was very hot. Much appreciated.
