The best part of the Tui Oaks Motor Inn is the view over Lake Taupo. The rooms are basic. We stayed in the family room (404) with a double bed in the main room and then another double bed and a single bed in a separate room. The two rooms are separated by the bathroom creating an unusual situation where...

The Tui Oaks is an older property, but it is well maintained and the rooms are being upgraded. I had a ground floor room overlooking the lake. The bed was very comfy and despite overlooking the main road the traffic noise did not disturb my sleep. They do have rooms that overlook the swimming pool at the side and you...

Handy to town. Lovely views of the lake. Needs a good clean and some "freshening up". Looked behind the bathroom door and there was a huge wad of someone else hair. The outside light didn't go out and made the room extremely bright. Overall an ok stay. Very speedy and slightly unnerving elevator!

I was in a ground floor room which looked out to the lake. Though small the room had a comfortable queen bed, table and chairs, tea, coffee and chocolate making facilities and a good shower. All I needed for the Ironman weekend.

I stayed one night on business. The managers are very welcoming, friendly, professional and helpful. I had a room at the side to avoid road noise (regrettably at the expense of having a view) and it was very spacious. There is a decent sized swimming pool, it's close to restaurants and has charge-back facilities.

Very clean, quiet, central and friendly. Plenty of pillows, blankets and we parked off road, easy to get to room, even in the rain. Electric blankets. Free WiFi. Views from 305. Central location, but was still quiet.

For the price this motel was very good. It is on the lake front, with just the road in front and is a short walk into town for a restaurant. The room and the bed were comfortable. There were tea and coffee making facilities in the room but no cooking. There was also a small but inviting outdoor pool, had...

Our room was up the back, but we arrived around sunset and just walked up into reception and got cheaper than the Internet rate. Free parking, free WiFi, plunger coffee, fresh milk, comfy bed and warm heater. When we woke and checked out there was fog everywhere. We don't regret not getting a lake view as nature would have cheated...

Visiting Taupo to see family I stayed with my wife at the Tui Oaks Motel. We were given room 403. The view was simply stunning across the lake to a heavily snow covered Mt Ruapehu, a crystal clear day after a few whips of Lake fog and views to die for. Despite the cold outside the room was warm a...

We came here without a reservation. Owners were friendly. Set up a cot for baby. Views were amazing. Room and toilet very clean. They even changed the small microwave in our room to a bigger one as i had to sterilise baby's bottles. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Would definitely come here again if in Taupo.
