There is no rating low enough for this Apartment block. It certainly does replicate a prison inside. The carpets in the walkways are filthy. To state this building is going to be renovated will not include the shabby, dirty apartments. These I understand are not owned by Oaks but managed by them. Clearly Oaks are not setting a required standard...

Feels like a jail. Room stunk of cigarette smoke, despite being a non smoking room. Tried to contact reception to change rooms; no phone calls or messages were answer. Room was nothing like the photos. Lighting was rubbish. Woken up early by the constant noise of traffic. Had to bend down to use the shower (I am not a tall...

This is not a 4 star hotel/apartment. we stayed 3 days 2 nights 1. Dirty smell in the room. Probably from previous occupants cooking that remained in the carpet. 2. Old kitchen appliances (we never used any) 3. They did not service/clean the room. When I rang housekeeping said check with reception because we are not scheduled for cleaning on...

I have stayed here a couple of times now. The historical building is very atmospheric - and engagingly different in the way that only converted Sydney warehouses can be. Most of the staff are friendly and helpful. You will need to walk some distance to find a cafe, restaurant or pub and when you do, the pickings are slim. Really,...

This was recommended by our travel agents as my own checks confirmed that Sydney is a very expensive city. The building is not a purpose built hotel but a converted wool factory and is huge but the internal layout is strange with mezzanine walk ways like you find in prisons. It is not easy to find and it took us...

We stayed here for 5 days in a two bedroom apartment. It was very clean and tidy and had everything you needed for a long or short stay. It was serviced every day ( sometimes after 5:30pm). It is just across the road from darling harbour and the light rail for easy transport. You do get some noise from the...

The building is HUGE - and the entrance atrium is impressive - but not necessarily in a good way. Taking the elevator up to your room and then walking through the Atrium gives you a sense that each room is but one cell in a massive complex... ...unfortunately that feeling carries over the overall atmosphere of the place. The staff...

Thank you for post. I am sorry to hear that your expectations were not met. As the building is heritage listed with an open atrium and the original hardwood floor from the 1800’s, noise can travel between levels. We do try to monitor this by doing regular nightly patrols and having additional security on during the weekends. We also place...

Considering we paid over AUD 500/night for a 2-bedroom apartment, this was not good value. I would have paid that for a nice clean room (and have paid more in the past), but this just felt grotty. Walls marked, cockroaches, stained carpets, hard thin towels, filthy windows, dodgy sliding door locks. Yuck - just yuck! Complex layout also quite bizarre...

Thank you for your post. I do apologise that the apartment standard did not meet your expectations. You are correct, as the building is heritage listed and was established in the 1800’s as a wool store. The open atrium and the original hardwood floors have been maintained to uphold the authenticity that it was created. We also have an ongoing...

We loved staying at the Oaks Goldsbrough. The rooms were well fitted out with kitchen and washing machine & dryer. The only downfall was an ugly wall to look at from our balcony that could be fixed with wall planting or painting. Nice facilities for swimming, spa pool, sauna and gym but we were too busy to use these much....
