Good value for money at $ 95.00 per night - lovely view of Lake Taupo. The owners/managers were friendly and accommodating. The room provided all the necessities - the shower, however was quite pathetic and the wifi connectivity was irritating to connect to and impossible to stay connected to! Good location though, within easy walking distance of a great pub!

Stayed here with my family in early January, overall it is a great place to stay – especially if you are given the choice to stay on the top floor. Very clean and quiet, with great views that overlook Lake Taupo and the Tongariro National Park. The host were super helpful if you ever needed anything and very friendly.

I stayed here with my Wife in April 2017. The rooms are very simple, small, but have everything you may need. The room was quite cheap too so no complaints. Excellent spot right by the lake with views down to the mountains at the south-west of the lake. Free Wi-Fi, although it cut in and out regularly, still free is...

We had a room which is located behind their cover photo. But we were next to the pool and still had a side view of the Lake. Good sized room, very helpful manager and friendly staff. Queen bed and 2 single beds in another room. Large bathroom.

Unfortunately I only ended up staying here one night, but the Tui Oaks had a great location ...a short walk from the main downtown area, and right on the lake! I used Taupo as my base for exploring Tongariro National Park. The room was nice, although I only was in the room to sleep ...wish I had spent an extra...

Stayed here as a stopover heading to Auckland. We were given a room in the top floor which had great views over looking the lake. Very comfortable and spacious rooms although very dated. Free wifi and 50+ channels of Sky TV were much appreciated especially by my 2 sons! Reasonably priced and friendly helpful staff made for an enjoyable stay....
