Visiting Taupo to see family I stayed with my wife at the Tui Oaks Motel. We were given room 403. The view was simply stunning across the lake to a heavily snow covered Mt Ruapehu, a crystal clear day after a few whips of Lake fog and views to die for. Despite the cold outside the room was warm a... More

We came here without a reservation. Owners were friendly. Set up a cot for baby. Views were amazing. Room and toilet very clean. They even changed the small microwave in our room to a bigger one as i had to sterilise baby's bottles. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Would definitely come here again if in Taupo.

Well appointed motor inn with a slightly unusual layout. 2nd bedroom accessible through the bathroom door. Very quiet yet on SH 1 so easy location in and out. Great view of lake from poolside room. Easy walking distance to town

We selected this motel because it was within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. The Lake is just across the road, so not only a beautiful view but long walks around the lake are easily accessible. The owners/managers are very helpful and friendly.

What a delightful place, perfect room, large and airy with the most spectacular lake views. The owners Ian & Liz really know how to make travellers feel safe and welcome and when i return in 18 months I am booking again

This is a really good motel in a great location with excellent facilities and very friendly, helpful owners. There was no charge for using the laundry. A hose was available for car washing. It was close to a supermarket and not too far from the centre of Taupo. I'd recommend Tui Oaks as great place to stay.

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... More

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... More

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... More
