We had a room which is located behind their cover photo. But we were next to the pool and still had a side view of the Lake. Good sized room, very helpful manager and friendly staff. Queen bed and 2 single beds in another room. Large bathroom.

My partner and I stayed here for one night in early Jan in a studio room. The room was very tidy and clean and had amazing views of the lake and the Tongariro National Park in the background. The staff who greeted us were very friendly and allowed us to leave our car on the premises after checking out so...

Unfortunately I only ended up staying here one night, but the Tui Oaks had a great location ...a short walk from the main downtown area, and right on the lake! I used Taupo as my base for exploring Tongariro National Park. The room was nice, although I only was in the room to sleep ...wish I had spent an extra...

Stayed here as a stopover heading to Auckland. We were given a room in the top floor which had great views over looking the lake. Very comfortable and spacious rooms although very dated. Free wifi and 50+ channels of Sky TV were much appreciated especially by my 2 sons! Reasonably priced and friendly helpful staff made for an enjoyable stay....

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...

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, &...
