I stayed in a studio apartment. Found the hosts very helpful and friendly. they gave me a choice of rooms. the apartment was very clean. It had a tub chair which was lovely - you didn't have to sit on the bed. The view was amazing of the lake with the mountains in the background. It also had a very... More

Have stayed here a few times. Room 401 is our favorite. Bedroom with a double and single, bath and shower, cooking facilities. This room is very sound proof. Hosts are lovely just ask them if you need something. Free wifi and a pool for warmer months. This place has a lift too. Located very central to shops, bars, gardens etc... More

Great view, nice and clean and very comfortable bed and hosts friendly. The place, however, does need a makeover I think, the room we stayed in was on the top floor premium price but furniture is looking tired and we found the heating inadequate. It is close to town which is a bonus.

Just a one night stay this time. Clean and tidy and over-looking the lake. What more could we ask for? For an older establishment, this is still a good place to stay. Close to the CBD and the cafes and restaurants which are all within walking distance for those who can go a kilometre or so each way. The configuration... More

Have stayed at Tui Oaks many times but it sure is time for a make over. Room clean & tidy but the whole place generally looking tired & shabby. When paying $170 a nite for room with a view I was hoping for clean windows to enjoy the view. I would expect better quality toiletries, hair dryer, makeup remover, &... More

We have stayed many times in Taupo and Tui Oaks is our favourite accommodation every time! It is centrally located to all cafes and restaurants, shopping, adventure sports and most of all it has the most stunning view from the front units. We stay in 301 and we get a corner and front view of the lake and mountains. Rooms... More

We stayed here for a night traveling down the country. Had an odd room configuration. Had to go through the bathroom to get to main bedroom. Bit hard with teenage kids. BUT, very clean and tidy and after a long drive was a great place to lay our heads. Very friendly service, great parking, and great value for money. We... More

The better half and I stayed here on our trip down the north island. Wanted to stay close to the lake and we couldn't have gotten much closer. The motel is situated right on the waterfront and has spectacular views. The room we stayed in had a balcony that was shared with two other rooms but we didn't use it... More

This Motor Inn was built in the 1970s so it is not new. We had a studio room facing the swimming pool away from the main road. Everything was spotless, bedding was very clean and the bed itself comfortable. In summary, the room was ideal for our one night stay as we were travelling south so were on our way... More

Stayed on the fourth floor for two nights. Room comfortable but showing its age. However clean and tidy and good range of Sky TV channels. Catch the lift up and walk down. Only 15 min walk into CBD. Hosts helpful. Right across the road from the foreshore where the water was still warm enough for a swim. Would be a... More
