An old hotel greatly in need of a renovation. Great location but nothing like the photos and certainly not living up to the price tag. Watch out for additional charges like room keys and excess Internet (not even sure how the Internet is connected but it is automatic so beware). Staff not helpful. Breakfast facilities are permanently closed and the... More

We had a 3 nights stay at this resort. Our room on level 5 had a queen size bed & a double sofa bed. It has a kitchen: fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster and kitchen utensils. In the bathroom there is F&Paykel top loader and F&Paykel dryer. And a shower/bath combo. The room is spacious and clean looking. Although looking out... More

We have stayed here previously and then, it was certainly in need of renovations. Well, they have started renovations and while the eastern side is looking better, the western side is still very rundown. We were initially given a room on the western side (town view), but requested an upgrade re renovations. Certainly it was better and only from the... More

I stayed here for business. After checking in I was shuffled across 3 different rooms due to faulty door locks, broken TV and by the 3rd room I just gave up. The room is dull and tired. The deck was no better with damaged outdoor setting chairs. The pebble verandah was littlered with cigarette butts, beer bottle caps and general... More

Last minute decision to spend a weekend out of town. The Oaks offers a perfect location to park the car and forget about it whilst at The Entrance. Overlooks the water and close to all restaurants. We stayed in an ocean view room which was fantastic. Good size, comfortable bed and great amenities. Fantastic value for money and very friendly... More

Great room on the 5th floor with ocean/ lake reviews. 3 day stay, perfect for markets, cafes and restaurants. Close to hotel- below and plenty of food choices. Stayed here a year ago and was advised rooms etc were due for a make over. Sadly this has not happened. Otherwise great weekend.

Spending the night here on business. Service is efficient. The room spacious,comfortable and clean. Close to a pub with a good range of meals. Other food options nearby, but the closest supermarket I could find was a few minutes drive. The room I was in had cooking facilities, a washing machine and clothes dryer. Handy if you need it.
