No pleasant surprises. No door on bedroom. Two singles pushed together to make a double bed. Under-equipt kitchen, no floor towel in bathroom. I would never stay here again. Friendly staff at check in.

Fantastic stay in a 2 bedroom apartment. Hotel was perfect for us, lots of space great amenities and the location was fantastic, close to cafes, restaurants and nelson bay. My only negative would be that the pool was a bit small, more of a lap pool. All in all great hotel and price.

The apartment itself was well equipped and very nice. Upstairs ... .The pool was cold and very small. The reception was small and unmanned for 99% of our stay. We had stayed at Oaks Blue for 7 days and then transferred to Nelson Bay. I wish I had just driven home to Belmont! It was nowhere near the water, the...

Based on price, location, room, pool and the lovely accommodating and most friendly staff, this was a perfect affordable getaway for our family of four! Yes room set up a bit odd with two separate levels locked off but can also be advantageous lol. A toilet around the pool area would be a great idea for future renovations and Yes...

Stayed for one night. We had had a two bedroom apartment. Rooms were ok, lots of markings and damage to walls. Freezer smelt like prawns and was a vomit odor in the lounge room area. Courtyard very basic with just tables and chairs. Bit of grass area but not well maintained. Did not check pool as it was very crowded...

- This Oaks Lure has no facilities at all , apart from a solar heated swimming pool, (which isn't efficient at all, it's very dependent on the weather , in the best case scenario it will heat the water up to 1-2 C degrees above the standard water or air temperatures) - the Architect who designed it deserve the best...

“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.”
