I live in Sydney, my mother flew in from Hobart, Tasmania to come and visit for the weekend 16/08 -18/08 and needed a hotel for the two nights. The Oaks was chosen based on availability, price and location. She paid around $400 in total for the 2 night stay, Sat and Sunday night. Check in was Sat afternoon, she was placed on the 15th floor, the top floor of the hotel. She had booked a Queen Size Studio room as I was going to stay with her.
The room had a small double bed only, the walls were filthy dirty! There were hand prints and marks on nearly every wall. There was a massive crack in the wall near the front door right up into the roof. There were scuff marks along most of the walls also. We were really dissappointed, this was not $200 per night value. The only good thing about the room was the large terrace balcony over looking Hyde Park.
We went down to reception to advise the bed was a small double, only just big enough for the two of us, (lucky we are quite small framed, otherwise it wouldn't have been) of the dirty room and crack in the wall. We were told they were quite booked for the Sat night but could upgrade to a refurbished room for the Sunday night, which we accepted. The bed was average at best and the next morning the shower also broke, the hot water tap fell off.
Sunday afternoon we returned to the hotel and were re assigned a room on the 7th floor. This was a much nicer room! It had a large queen size bed, refurbished kitchen and bathroom and nice carpet. The walls were clean and looked freshly painted. This was worth the money and had we been assigned this room to start with there would not have been any complaints.
A tip for anyone wanting to stay at this hotel, upon booking make sure you ask for a refurbished room!!
