I have just spent 3 nights at Oaks Lure and it was a most enjoyable stay, absolutely no complaints at all. The room was large and comfortable, everything worked! The staff were polite and helpful and the parking and overall security excellent. The Oaks Lure is situated in a central area near to many shops.

We booked an apartment for 4 adults. What we got was a split level apartment which was really nice. 1 room with 2 single beds, and a double bed in the other. It had a complete kitchen, 2 bathrooms and a lounge room. It was very clean, looked very new. From the downstairs room we could see the water. The...

When having difficulties with a booking listed on Expedia, I rang them and Expedia offered a lower that advertised rate for a motel style room. The room was clean, faced the street, had a renovated bathroom with no shower hubs (great for those with mobility issues) and included some cutlery and a microwave as well as tea/coffee making options and...

Very helpful staff. We had a bayview balcony room which was great. Within easy walking distance from the centre of nelson bay CBD and also a couple of clubs. Room was clean but could do with a freshen up/repaint.

The location is great, the pool is lovely, the size of the two bedroom apartment is fantastic and great if you have teenagers as there is a bedroom downstairs. The overall cleanliness is average. The lounge is marked and has sand and food scraps all over it, the kitchen bench is dirty, the grass around the pool needs to be...

We found the room very comfortable, clean and of a good size. We had a two bedroom apartment which was on a split level. Credit must go to the reception team who were very friendly and helpful on both check in and check out.

It is seldom that we review below 'very good' but unfortunately the Oaks Lure misses the mark. The location was just fine but the apartment itself was sub par. Cleanliness was a problem all round but particularly appliances (dishwasher, fridge). Maintenance was a problem also with broken shelves in the fridge and a general 'tiredness' all round. Upside was the...

The rooms are very nice however can get a bit stuffy and hot especially at night. Would prefer a bedroom with a door to block out the noise from the lounge room. Other than that we have stayed a couple of times and really enjoyed our stay and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

This is the place to be when in Nelson Bay! It is near everything and yet a little bit away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Chose these apartments due to price offered. On arrival we asked about an upgrade in room for sake of facilities and Danielle and Alice on front desk were able to shuffle the rooms to allow for this.
