Hats off to Oaks Lure...awesome check in, free upgraded room with a private courtyard and a late check out too. The studio was very clean and well presentable...tho the freezer needs to be defrosted more regularly. Can't fault our stay...fantastic getaway for the night :)

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of April. The room was quite nice except stains and bloods on curtain. The bed was very very uncomfortable. It was 2 single beds joined together. Staffs were polite. Pool area looked nice however it seems like no one ever use it. The most annoying thing was the super thin wall....

Stayed for two nights at their 1 bedroom bay view self contained apartment. The stay was pleasant and view was good. The receptionist was very nice and welcoming. The downside was definitely the stairs up to the room. The carpark was super hot, like a big oven. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. Will definitely consider coming back!
