Review of Tui Oaks Motel
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 3 Mar 2022
We loved our stay so much that we are already planning the next one. Our room on the top floor had the most spectacular panoramic views of the lake and mountains. We booked the Lakefront Studio for 2 people and the room exceeded our expectation - neat and clean and all the small things that you need - cutlery, crockery, toiletries, bar fridge, toaster, kettle etc. Diane was awesome - really friendly and flexible - made us feel very welcome. There's also a lounge on the ground floor with amazing views. It's a short walk into town or to the boat harbour. Highly recommended.
Date of stay: February 2022
Room Tip: Lakefront top floors offer great views

Reviewed 18 January 2022

Stayed here for 4 nights, and what a view we had from our room on the top floor over looking the lake and into the mountains. Room was clean and bed comfy. If I'm to be picky, Air con would be nice in the rooms, but this was only because of the beautiful days and sun streaming straight in, if it were rainy cold days, wouldn't have mattered!
Take the lift, always an experience. :)

Stayed at Tui Oaks in one of the lower waterfront rooms. Room was lovely and clean and had everything we needed. Great location and great view of the lake. Rooms are dated and front of the unit could do with double glazing as the road noise was loud. However for what you pay, you can't go wrong.

Reviewed 29 April 2021

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,

Room tip: . Maybe a back room without a view if you don't want any traffic noise

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.

Tui Oaks was clean an had good facilities an close to Jolly Good Fellows which was excellent food. But the bed was very hard! Difficult to sleep. Lovely view and lift.
The boat, the guys an the sailing was just excellent experience!

Hello Anne, thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are sorry to hear the bed was too hard for you. Please always let us know anything you are not happy with. We would have moved you to another room for the other two nights of your stay.
Thank you for choosing Tui Oaks Motel and we hope to see you again sometime soon.
