  • Family with children

    the room was beautiful, we were on the 25th floor and had a fabulous view from the balcony, really handy to have a mini kitchen and washer/dryer. Some of the female front desk staff were very helpful when we had questions about local shops etc.

    the parking was confusing, the front desk guy didn't give very clear instructions on how to use the electronic entry which you have to swipe for two different gates to get to your parking spot. And for a two bedroom apartment we only got one key. Also they phone use charges were a bit ridiculous, for about 5 calls we paid $37.00

    very handy to our business comitments

  • Group of friends

    Convenient location, well appointed, and efficient, pleasant staff contact.

  • Family with children

    Very practical location in cbd

    Fire alarm very sensitive and activated when using the toaster! Limited kitchen ustensils (only 1 small saucepan)

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Staff were very curtious and professional. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them

    Pots and frypans should be checked a little more when guests check out, as we had to wash the frypan before we could use it.

  • Older travelers

    The apartment was spacious and modern; the bed comfortable. The location very good.

    It felt a tad stingy, with notes on charges for extra towels, and other items which were listed. No face washer or hand towel. Made it feel like money was more important than service, and not very welcoming. A little bit of generosity goes a long way with me. The dishwasher was out of action (not really necessary for 2 people and the short time we stayed), however the little sachet of dishwashing liquid once again seemed stingy, and very messy to use. Why not provide a pump action detergent bottle which you refill to suit the length of the booking period? We found the sofa and armchair to be rather uncomfortable.

  • Group of friends
    6.2

    its location, the furniture was comfortable and cosy.

    More cleaning detergent and milk in the fridge would have been nice. Blinds that work and a telephone that can actually get through to reception would also have been an improvement.

  • Group of friends
    7.0

    Very central to hospital and cbd. As we were there for mediacl reasons public transport and taxis very important.

    Rooms getting a little tired but functional. Instructions for oven would be very useful, set off smoke alarm!

  • Single
    5.0

    Comfortable apartment (room 1402) and I had river/bridge views.

    No toiletries apart from 2 small cakes of soap and toilet paper!!! No tissues, hand towel or face washer. No restaurant.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    Location is great. Front staff were very helpful and pleasant.

    The hotel looks tired. It needs general upkeep done to bring it back in line with the quality of other Oaks properties I have stayed in. I would choose to stay at other Oaks hotels prior to choosing this one again unless the price was very reasonable.

  • Single
    10.0

    It was quiet, luxurious and the staff were very friendly. I would have no hesitatation in recommending it as an upmarket destination.

    No shampoo or any other comfort bathroom goodies on offer.

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    Hi I liked the customer service at the reception desk. The unit was also clean and comfy.

    There was no instructions that the reception is to the left we were trying to get into the building and several people walked pass us into the building and didn't even tell us that the reception was next door. A sign near the intercom will be good.

  • Group of friends

    I liked the proximity to queen st,and most places we needed were in walking distance.The staff were very helpful.We would stay again.
