Lovely stay at the Oaks Lure great location. Grandchildren loved the pool and swam everyday. The staff very friendly and helpful. Arrived very distressed having lost our vouchers and they were very understanding and did everything to help. The beds very comfortable with all mod cons.

This is our second visit (last one was two years ago) and once again the welcome from staff was very good. The place is starting to show its age a bit, both in general areas and in the rooms. That said we do like the roominess of the two bedroom apartment. Main criticism, like last time, is the bed. It's... More

Who cleans this place? Maybe ten year olds do? Filthy walls and the carpet has cigarette butt marks and is worn and tacky. The smell when we walked into our two bedroom mountain view split level apartment (sounds amazing doesn't it) nearly took our heads off! Mould in the bathrooms filthy walls, puny balcony, uncomfortable and grotty furniture, and a... More

Thank you for staying with us during your recent visit to Nelson Bay and for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. I am quite concerned with the comments made regarding the cleanliness and general presentation of your room. This is not the general standard of our rooms and we do not find this acceptable.

Just spent 3 nights here with my mother. After I had already booked, I noticed in some photos that there were very steep stairs. Knowing my mum wouldn't be able to handle them, I rang to ask if there were any rooms without stairs. There wasn't, but they managed to accommodate us in a downstairs apartment which had a back...

We booked 3 nights at Oaks Lure. Reception staff very friendly, even upgraded our room to bay views without me even asking, which of course impressed me. Whilst in need of a good paint job inside and out we found the unit to be clean and well appointed, although no foxtel sports Chanel a disappointment for some of the family!... More

Overpriced (even at Xmas time), our 2 bedroom apartment was OK. We thought all bedrooms were upstairs, but one was downstairs with strange kitchenette. The walls, furniture, curtains and even the lamps(!) were very stained and dirty. Also the location was awful, don't stay in town! Would never stay at an Oaks property again.
