We were welcomed by very friendly staff and given local knowledge of good places to eat and where to visit. Walking distance to restaurants. Our room was very clean and spacious. The free parking and wifi was a bonus. the views of the lake were spectacular especially at sunset.

Fairly good location. Directly across the street from the lake. The room was nice and clean. When windows are opened, flies and mosquitoes come in. It would be nice if there are screens to prevent that.

My second stay at Executive Motel, and once again, the host was lovely. Nothing was too much trouble. We arrived early on our motorbikes, we could park right outside our room. As before, the room was spotless and very comfortable. Great location, with a short stroll to the shops and bars, but far enough away that it is quiet. I... More

Lovely room. Very clean and comfortable.The room was very spacious and well equipped. Good parking space. Internet could have been better, our room was quite away from the reception. Around reception area was very good. Staff very helpful. Away from the main road so no traffic noise.
