Great location and very comfortable. Short walking distance to an excellent restaurant & the lake is just across the road. Service was wonderful and we really enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

Fairly quiet for a main road motel. Was hoping for more expansive view over lake from room but no. Staff very knowledgeable about local eateries, sightseeing and activities. Bed comfortable and room had everything we needed.

Thanks for taking the time to place your kind review and rating for our Motel. We do say that the Lake views are from the balcony area not from inside the rooms this is due to the design of the Motel protecting guests from both the road noise and the strong southerly winds which blast in straight across the lake and road. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope we see you again Kindest Regards The Executive Motel Team
