Fantastic Location

Our stay at this hotel was great except we had 36 days and no air con for 2 days and nights which was very uncomfortable. The staff did get us fans for night two and an upgrade on our third night but that did not make up for the lack of air conditioning. Having said that we would still go back.

Would recommend, with some hesitation

Our one night special mum/daughter experience was positive until 8 AM when the four of us were awoken in our 2 bedroom ocean view apartment by a jackhammer slamming through concrete. No room, nor the balcony could offer respite. Until our check out time, the noise continued and really ruined our morning rest and relaxation. When we complained, we were told the $20 parking fee would be deducted from the cost of our stay. And that they would consider giving us an upgrade for a return visit. I have worked and trained customer service for years (including hospitality) and felt that this was not adequate compensation for the shocking noise and vibration. After a long deliberation with two managers, it was agreed that our breakfast cost would be absorbed by the management. I felt that the time of deliberation was extensive and that this could have been resolved better after our initial complaint. This hotel really is fantastic and should have outstanding reviews. It's a pity that negotiation and customer complaint/resolution is not as valued as it should be. I know from experience that if you resolve issues quickly and generously, you create customers for life. In order to increase customer review ratings, my recommendation is that the staff are trained in 5-star complaint resolution. Sometimes disappointments happen - pools need maintenance, saunas are closed for repair, building improvements need to go on. However, when customers pay for a hotel room, they usually expect a peaceful stay for the dollars spent. One hour of a jackhammer would have been tolerable - but not for the whole morning.

" Still Excellent! "

We came here again with high expectations that it would be as good as it was on our previous visit. We checked in with Josh, who was pleasant and informative and from then on everything went so well, that after 2 nights, we felt that we had been there for a week! Amongst other things, we had a superb breakfast in The Rocks Restaurant. All in all, it was so good and relaxing that we can't wait to return again!

Overnight Stay

As a last minute trip away, and a last minute booking, we were rapt with the accommodation, especially the comfy bed. Loved it. We will be back

Uncomfortable & lacking attention to detail

I have stayed at the Oaks previously and whilst has never been exceptional, on this visit for a weekend noticed a few flaws that mean likely to stay elsewhere next time in Adelaide. Our one bedroom apartment was spacious and well laid out with decent sized kitchen and living area. The bedroom is a little tight but adequate. The bed itself was uncomfortable, two twins joined together with a very uncomfortable ridge in the middle. The bedding is a lower standard of sheets, quilts and pillows than I would expect in a 4 star hotel. I always find it irritating when a hotel only give you one towel per person which was case here and the towels were very rough and poor quality. The bathroom itself is spacious however shower head old and water went all over bathroom floor. The servicing of our apartment was sub standard too (remember it is a hotel with hotel prices), all staff did was change towels (we made bed before going out for day). Came back to rubbish bins still full, counter not wiped down. Thus is a party hotel, despite rules there are a lot of parties going on so bring ear plugs. All in all fairly sub standard, you would do better to stay in city and catch tram to Glenelg
