Overall oaks lure was ok..the staff were really friendly upon check in but it was the little things that let it down.. Only supplying one roll of toilet paper and then making you pay $1.50 for another. I have stayed in un serviced apartments before but this was a little bizarre considering there wasn't even a second spare. The door... More

Had a two night break. While the accommodation was spacious and relatively clean (the walls showed an amateur effort at cleaning) the rest of the place was about making maximum dollar for the owners. Internet $18 per day! There is no cleaning or servicing of the rooms, you can request it at $30 a time! Because there is no servicing... More

I understand the 'unserviced' deal for not making beds, not changing towels, not replenishing tea/coffee, etc. What I do not understand is not having a spare toilet roll in the bathroom. Amongst the paperwork given to us on arrival was a list to purchase additional items for the room. Toilet paper $1.50. It was not the price, it was not... More

The Oaks Lure is a modern facility with modern clean room, secure undercover parking, and a solar heated lap pool. The hotel is not far from the centre of Nelson Bay and easy to find. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Late night check in is by a night drop box.

What? Only 1 star for a hotel classed as a 4 star rating? How could this be? Let's start with the positives. Nice warm friendly reception. Free parking. New private bathroom. Now for the rest.
