Reviewed 15 August 2014 via mobile

Apartment superb. Great size. Beautiful view across river. Bed great for comfort but could have been double not 2 singles pushed together!! Washing machine and dryer in room was godsend after nearly a month on the road.
Front desk staff all lovely and so helpful. Location brill for sights and local bars and restaurants.
Would very highly recommend.

Stayed August 2014, travelled as a couple

Dear Suenhelen,

Thank you for taking the time to write about you recent stay at The Oaks on Felix. Thank you for acknowledging our friendly staff but not to mention our incredible views we have here at the Oaks Felix. I was disappointed to here about the twin beds pushed together as to make the King bed. I have passed this message on to our housekeeping department in relation to this matter. I appreciate you taking the time to write a review on your recent stay, all feedback helps us to improve our operating standards.

We are looking forward to see you back soon.

Regards,

Had a great view of the Story Bridge plus river and the apartment had everything we required for a short stay. Parking on site available at extra charge. For a small fee you can organise a late check out as well.

Great location and facilities, but car park bookings were stuffed around on two of our three rooms. It took us an hour from when we first walked in the door, to getting to our room, because of this error.

Dear Mellovoice, thanks for taking the time to write your comments about your recent stay at Oaks on Felix. I was disappointed and concerned to learn that your stay was disturbed in such a way. We have limited car parks available therefore; if you need to reserve a car park please ensure this is done prior to arrival. I am a little confused about how it could take an hour to book a car space in for you as it takes just a few minutes if we have the availability. Could you please contact me directly on hmfelix@theoaksgroup.com.au as I would like to discuss this matter further.

Great hotel, awesome views over the story bridge and such a great location so close to Eagle St's great selection of bars and restaurants. The City Cat's and ferry's also leave Eagle St and can take you all over Brisbane. Friendly staff and very comfortable apartments. A perfect spot for families to stay when exploring Brisbane.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view room.

Perfect location if you want to be in the CBD and close to the river. Our apartment also had amazing views (level 29) and was huge. We had 2 adults and 4 kids and there was certainly enough for all of us and then some! The bonus was having a bathroom for each bedroom.

If staying with kids this place is perfect. Its only a short walk to the pier where you can catch the City Hopper Ferry (free) and it goes to Southbank if you want to head to the Museum or Art Gallery which we did. It is also super close to the Botanical gardens and playgrounds. We went every day and it was great. Spring cafe downstairs on the corner is handy and have great food.

Reception staff were very friendly and helpful so full marks to them!

Would stay again for sure. When the kids are happy - parents are happy!

We did have a few minor gripes and this is only being picky:
- the inside of the windows weren't clean and you could see little hand marks all over them from previous occupants.
- a few cups and glasses were either broken or dirty (you could see coffee drips and lipstick marks) - this is pretty off putting to be honest.
- Some of the blinds we had to fix ourselves as they did not go down.
- The Victory hotel located down the road was VERY Loud on Thursday night, music and people singing and screaming out till all hours. This is not the Hotels fault but I did mention it to the reception staff who knew about it too. Noise is to be expected in the CBD but that was crazy.
- Might be worthwhile asking people what type of vehicle they drive. We paid for parking and it was a ridiculously tight squeeze. We have a large 4WD and I had to pull in my side mirrors to navigate up/down the ramps and it took a 4 point turn or more to get around each corner. City carparks were not designed for larges 4WD's that's for sure.

We are pleased to read your review and extremely happy that you enjoyed your stay with your family. Thank-you for acknowledging our friendly staff, they will be extremely happy to receive such positive feedback. We continue to receive positive feedback in regards to our handy location to many shops, cafes and restaurants and not to mention the amazing views we have to offer here at Oaks Felix.
The car parking clearance is 2.1 and is clearly signed as it is a tight squeeze however, we will continue to pre warn any future arrivals.
I have also passed on your feedback to the Housekeeping Contractors in relation to the cleanliness of the apartment and the replacement items. I appreciate you taking the time to write a review on your recent stay, all feedback helps us to improve our operating standards.

We stayed at the Oaks on Felix with our 2 kids (8 and 5) for a family wedding over the road at the Polo Club. It was in a great location for everything we could want - close to the city shops, over the road from the Eagle Street Pier with all the cafes to choose from for breakfast.

We had a 2 bedroom apartment configured with one double room and a twin room on level 36 and the apartment had a glorious view of the Story Bridge and the Brisbane River below. The apartment was spacious enough for ourselves and the 2 kids without feeling we were on top of each other.

Staff were friendly and helpful at reception, and we ordered for our kids and the babysitter on the wedding night from the extensive room service menu which is lots of local dining options in one catalogue. They delivered quickly straight to the apartment door.

We did not have a car but our babysitter did, and all the car spots were taken when I tried to book one on the day, so make sure you book in advance if needed as the spots seem to limited.

Room Tip: Higher the better - even on Level 36 we could hear dull noise from weekend party people down around...
