Stayed in April, got a room with a view over the lake, that was about the only good thing with this motel. A strange kind of welcome, the guy seemed nice enough, but could tidy up his appearance, socks and jandels, come on. No bathroom door, so if you were in bathroom and someone wanted to go to bedroom, anyone in room would have seen. Apart from the view the room was very unwelcoming feel to it, and I think it could certainly do with an upgrade as it was vert tired looking. I know times have been hard for the likes of motels, but that is no reason why the rooms can't be spotless. If fact with this room,

I left my phone charger behind in my unit and phoned to see if it had been found. The manager was extremely rude and personal on the phone. I had stayed there several times previously and taken a school group there but will never visit again.

Hello Sheila, thank you for taking the time to write a review. Our Relief Manager recalls you demanding we send your phone charger and pay the cost. The policy with lost property is either the guest sends a self addressed handibag and we will return your property or we can courier it to you at a cost, which was trying to be explained to you.

Very well situated with a nice view over the lake. Quiet. Reception was friendly and efficient. Only criticism is that the unit was light on towels, given that we had indicated two people would be staying - only one hand towel and one large towel. Assume this was an oversight.

I just stayed 2 nights at Tui Oaks. I arrived late at night and the lady whom I had spoken to at reception kindly left the keys (hidden) for me on arrival (I was after midnight on a Friday night sadly). The room was very nice, clean and tidy and the next morning the view was spectacular. I thanked the lady on reception the next morning for leaving the keys out and she replied, "We can do that anytime for you - we often do that for our regular travelling sales customers - which I thought was a nice response and a great idea. I found the room was tidy and clean and while the windows did fog up badly, it did not take too long to clear them, once the windows were opened," There is plenty of parking and is a nice easy walk to the entrances (I am partially disabled so this was especially appreciated - as was the lift/elevator inside!). The ladies that were looking after the rooms were very polite and happy and the couple who said goodbye to me as I left were very pleasant - the man even carried my bags to my car for me.... All in all, a lovely stay. I will definitely stay at Tui Oaks again, hopefully in the near future. RH
