We found the room very comfortable, clean and of a good size. We had a two bedroom apartment which was on a split level. Credit must go to the reception team who were very friendly and helpful on both check in and check out.

It is seldom that we review below 'very good' but unfortunately the Oaks Lure misses the mark. The location was just fine but the apartment itself was sub par. Cleanliness was a problem all round but particularly appliances (dishwasher, fridge). Maintenance was a problem also with broken shelves in the fridge and a general 'tiredness' all round. Upside was the... More

The rooms are very nice however can get a bit stuffy and hot especially at night. Would prefer a bedroom with a door to block out the noise from the lounge room. Other than that we have stayed a couple of times and really enjoyed our stay and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

This is the place to be when in Nelson Bay! It is near everything and yet a little bit away from the hustle and bustle of the city. We were very impressed with the cleanliness, the efficiency and the friendliness of the reception staff. Although it was just a one night stop-over for us, we would definitely stay longer on...

Chose these apartments due to price offered. On arrival we asked about an upgrade in room for sake of facilities and Danielle and Alice on front desk were able to shuffle the rooms to allow for this. This made our weekend more enjoyable. 1 bed apartment was great it had everything you need for a short stay with kitchen facilities... More

We had a most relaxing three night midweek stay in a one bedroom Bayview apartment. For a little extra we were on the top floor with expansive views of the beautiful bay and surrounds. It was perfect! Especially spacious with all the necessary comforts and easy walks to the Nelson Bay Marina, cafes and restaurants. Would recommend for mini breaks.

My wife and I stayed overnight 4th August 2016 and found the staff to be very friendly. Room overlooked the pool, was modern, lovely and bright and comfortable. Would have no hesitation in recommending this property or staying there again if visiting the area.

We checked in last minute, due to the conditions at the other hotel we had booked being unsatisfactory. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, and did everything they could to ensure that we got a great deal and that the accommodation was right for us.

We booked a one bedroom apartment at the last minute here, at a very good rate, however reception tried to change us to a motel room, which was not what we needed. The room was poorly prepared, cupboard doors open, face off one of the drawers and toilet not cleaned. After I complained they switched our room. The new one... More
