Great value

Great location for all city attractions. Easy to get to with parking across the road. Had a studio apartment which was good for more than one night with kitchen and laundry.

Recent stay at The Oaks

We were satisfied overall with the hotel, staff, amenities etc. The location was perfect, especially being in close proximity to Darling Habour, the CBD and to other attractions. Only issue we had was not being advised by reception of extra parking charges.

Sydney Family Trip

We had a 2 bedroom apartment on the 5th Floor. Based on our deal it was value for money. Front reception was quick and the staff were polite and very helpful. The room was serviced daily, and the room we found was clean. The indoor pool and spa was great, although we were not the only people who expected the pool to be heated, it wasn't. The location was a short walk to Darling Harbour and to the local IGA and Coles Supermarket. The lifts were ok! and in the process of being upgraded (I heard some people complaining that they took too long). The room contained a full kitchen, small laundry, living/dining room on one level (the room size was comfortable for a family of four), and two bedrooms, two bathrooms and closet on the lower level. The room was advertised as split level but should be two level. The stair was narrow and difficult to manoeuvre. The room was stuffy but had air-conditioning. The windows could be slightly opened. The biggest negative was the noise from the major road that passed close to the hotel and from adjoining rooms. Somehow you seemed to get used to the traffic noise but it did make sleeping difficult. We found it was value for money, but l couldn't stay there for more than a few days.

Needs aRefurbishment

I have stayed here before and been very happy but this time the apartment was very scruffy and worn badly needs refurbishment. Tried to change but nothing else available. On the positive side, the location is great for Darling Harbour and the City and the facilities are good

This is not a 4 star property

The only good thing about this property is its proximity to the city & Darling Harbour. The furniture is old, tired and dirty. The safe didn't work, nor did the phone. I alerted staff to this issue immediately after check in and was told the would send someone to fix. We stayed for 4 nights and nobody came. 4 of us stayed in the two bedroom apartment and the second bedroom was tiny!! Not comfortable for 4 adults. On a few occasions we had to go to reception to get our own towels as the room had not been serviced. In fact, the room was only serviced a couple of times during our stay. The air conditioning was inadequate and the apartment incredibly hot. We opened the windows and ended up being bitten by mosquitoes. This was not the standard we expected from an Oaks property and would not book here again

Hotel or Prison?

Booked Oaks Goldsbrough as we wanted to get an apartment to accommodate 5 adults. There were other options in the CBD but we decided quite late for the Sydney trip and wanted something a bit away from the hustle and bustle of the CBD. After reading some reviews I was a bit concerned, however I was not able to locate too many photos of the hotel apart from the rooms. The car park was in a great location nearby to the apartment but thats pretty much all I can say. We walked through to the hotel and we werent sure if it was a Hotel or Prison. The old creepy smell and creaking wooden floors were something we were not expecting. Lets just say, I did ask my family if we should just stay for one night instead of the three we booked and stay in another hotel. We didnt have the home away from home feel and spent very less time in the hotel as we didnt like it. We checked out the 2 bedroom apartment we had with views of a brick wall. I am not sure when the last time the apartment was cleaned as when we sat down to relax the sofas took a lot of dust off it and had to use a towel to dust the rest off. We didn’t sit on it again so couldn’t enjoy much. Lots of mosquitos in the room also and the kitchen was full of dead fruit flies in the cupboards and cutlery draws. The lights had dust all over and we couldn’t turn on the Air Conditioning as dust was flying everywhere. Pretty disappointing to be honest for a “4 star”. We weren’t even able to sleep at night as there were bugs everywhere and beds making us itchy. Unfortunately I wouldn’t recommend this place.
