If you are just after a room with a bed this is ok but we stayed during a hot couple of days & had booked a balcony room. We didn't realise till we got here all balcony rooms were on the ground floor and it was one balcony shared by all rooms. To make it worse there is only a/c...

We stayed at Tui Oaks on the busy weekend of the Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge. On the way up to Taupo from Wellington our car broke down and we had to be towed to Taupo. We called Tui Oaks and were kindly told it was no issue if we had to check in late. When we arrived the tow truck...

I stayed here with my partner as we are visiting from Australia. The views from our room were great, the rooms were simple but clean and comfortable for a nights stay. Sadly the staff or whoever was in charge couldn't even greet us when we checked in/out & upon check out and I quote "you can go now" after taking...

I went with my family and it was amazing to booked that apartment. No doubt, was clean and tidy. The only thing is that they have got portable heaters, instead of heat pump which keeps little bit warm to the room. Apart from this, all was good.

What a lovely stay. We had a room on the 3rd floor, what breathtaking views of the lake and the snow capped mountains, just awesome. The rooms where very clean and heaps of space. The bed was very comfy - very impressed. The owners were very lovely and welcoming and did well to accommodate our needs. I would recommend others...

I rarely have occasion to stay in motels but I needed somewhere to stay on the Saturday of Anzac weekend and not having pre booked anywhere I tried the Tui Oaks because it is virtually next door to the Jolly Good Fellows Pub and Restaurant which is a favourite of mine when in Taupo. The lady at reception was very...

Tui oaks is nothing special, other than good view of the lake. The rooms are quite small. We got changed to a 1 bedroom room due to a plumbing problem in the studio room we had booked. The bedroom was very narrow, making passing by end of bed tight. The female proprietor was pleasant enough, but can't say same for...

Yes I was a bit grumpy, but then I had good reason. You don't mention that you were booked in for one night and went out at 8.30 the next morning and didn't return until 3 pm then proceeded to check out. You were well aware that the normal checkout time was 10am. We attempted to contact you by email...

Stayed one night after long drive from Auckland, owners couldn't have been more welcoming and lovely, nothing too much trouble, we had a two bedroomed apartment with good facilities, fine for one night. Our room was on ground floor behind stairs and looked onto pool.

The motel is well situated with views from the front units over Lake Taupo. We had an upstairs one bedroom unit with a view and a workable kitchen, and a ground floor studio unit at the back, which had access from the room to the outdoor pool area and bbq. The pool looked like it needed a major clean, so...
