SilverOaks Resort Heritage

This is not a clean place, this is an outdated, run down, cruddy looking place.
With a massive collection of bird poops on our bathroom window, massive stain in the main bedroom carpet, a tv with shocking reception and a smell that would rival rotten egg's we definately would reccomend this as a place to stay. If your paying over $80 p/n your probably getting ripped off. The cleaner needs to wear deodorant, she smelt so bad it made me gag.
Nevertheless we had a good time but would not reccomend this place unless u got it on a last minute heavily discounted deal.

A TV with no remote control. An extremely soft bed where you rolled together in the middle. Dry damp near the heater inlet. Damp on the bare concrete floor where the spa was. Damp mould on the spa plug. The world's noisiest tiny fridge that belted out like a Spitfire engine every 20 minutes throughout the night. Non-existent customer service.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else

Hi, i stayed here from 1-2 March, in a family room, very basic, good kitchen lots of space. there was mini put, a heated pool, ok restaurant. Overall OK, needs a lot of handy man work. But you coul prob find better in Rotorua. We paid $240, 4 x pax inc breakfast.

Would i go again - yes as it is spacious, lovely people and cheapish.

Room Tip: the stairs are steep and narrow, so ask if you are up stairs not good for elerly

Pros: Especially enjoy this motel when the children are with us. With 2 tv sets in the one-bedroom unit there are no disagreements on what we'll be watching.....and the spa bath an added bonus! The pool is heated and centrally located and although the tennis court and mini-putt facilities are in need of updating and sprucing up, they are available all the time and keep the children happy.

Cons: Reception service ranges from friendly to down-right rude and abrupt - depending on who you are (un)fortunate enough to get! Definitely an area that needs urgent attention!

Room Tip: If travelling with children, definitely go for the one or two bedroom unit with a spa!

A problem with our initial booking not being received by the motel was sorted after a few phone calls. Having booked first and then reading the poor reviews I was not optimistic- but our room was more than adequate, infact I was suprised at how self-contained it really was. The room was clean, had clean linen and towels. Yes, it could use a new coat of paint, a bigger tv and new furniture- but it served our purpose perfectly. The kitchen did what we needed it to (kept food and beers cool while the elements boiled baby bottles). We had people staying on either side but heard nothing. The kids playground could use some new swings etc but hey, the pool was put to good use. You get what you pay for, and we found everything on this trip just fine. Would we stay here again? Yes.

Stayed here for just one night for a Wedding not at this venue. The rooms are OK we had a Spa Unit which was OK. Unit 1 by the road but had no issues with traffic noise. The resort has quite a few facilities. Min Golf, Tennis, Gym and decent swimming pool. The restaurant was average though and the service generally all round we found to be a little rude, If they up the game in this area they'd come up a level or 2.

Stayed here over the Ragga weekend, i booked thru an internet website which was confirmed... after calling the hotel 2 days later to confirm my booking, they told me they had nothing booked for me and they had NO spare rooms available after a few emails back and forth and few days of worrying about where we were going to stay the hotel confirmed the booking. Rooms were nice enough we didnt spend that much time in them as we were out most of the days ... we had the studio spa unit (Rm #1) which was cool could do with a new fridge as it doesnt keep anything cold our friends had a 1 bedroom unit pretty pleasant would prefer this to the spa unit!!!.. They did have a night man walking around telling everyone to 'shut it' (this was at 10pm on Ragga weekend come on!!) 90% of the ppl there were there for Ragga the guys we were with started laughing at his 'Shut it' comment he was making to the ppl downstairs only to have this reply from the night rider lol "If you guys wanna fight you'll get one" LMFAO we couldnt belive it him saying this to 2 large island guys was the highlight of our pre-ragga night hahahhah ... all in all was alright for what we paid for didnt eat the food coz $18 only gets you bacon eggs toast tomato and a coffee .. hhmmm..

Room Tip: Bring your own chilly bin if you want to keep your drinks cold
