My partner and I stayed at Oaks Lure for four nights and not a day went by without us spending half an hour at reception. We had three keys not work one of which had us locked outside the building for half an hour. Our lock to the room we were staying in was broken when we arrived. The shower... More

We stayed here the weekend when Port Stephens suffered bad storms and terrible damage. The town of Nelson Bay was in blackout for almost 15 Hours. We were at the hotel when the storm hit and the alarms went off asking us to evacuate, which was a false alarm the hotel was absolute chaos as none of the guest knew... More

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. I most certainly understand that the night of the storm was indeed a bad experience for all involved. At the time of the power outage occuring it was normal procedure for the fire alarm to announce an emergency evacuation in the building, this is required by law and... More

We stayed at Oaks Lure for a 5 night stay January 2014. We were arriving at 6pm (we had an 10 hour drive) and didn't realise there is not 24 hour reception. The reception staff contacted us and check in was all sorted via phone without a fuss. The Manager that day was really good. We arrived and moved into... More

My partner and I decided to have a weekend away and wanted something close to the township of Nelson Bay, something affordable with views and an apartment style property. The Oaks Lure ticked all of our boxes. Leah and Danielle were great in the booking process and helpful during our stay. The 1 bedroom Bayview apartment we stayed in was... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment across 2 levels. The long staircase between the bedroom and living area/2nd bedroom was difficult for us. The apartment was spacious but there were quite a few niggling problems, e.g. insufficient and hard pillows, not enough soap, only one bedside lamp in the main bedroom, the lights in the kitchen area worked haphazardly,...

Stayed for two nights at their 1 bedroom bay view self contained apartment. The stay was pleasant and view was good. The receptionist was very nice and welcoming. The downside was definitely the stairs up to the room. The carpark was super hot, like a big oven. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. Will definitely consider coming back!

Our weekend did not get off to a great start. Upon arrival we were trapped in elevator. After 5 mins of being stuck & numerous attempts of seeking assistance, we were finally assisted by Asian cleaners who couldn't speak English. Curtains were sheer organza- waking at day break each morning. So annoying. Air conditioner wasn't properly operational. No fly screen... More

Don't bother paying extra for the 'bayview'. Our window faced out onto a white wall and fire exit rather than the pristine view shown in promotional material. Chance of approx. 6 of 15 rooms to be as advertised that so it's the luck of the draw. I was told our room would be taken off the 'bayview' list so hopefully... More
