“Great location and facilities for enjoying the best of Adelaide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

This apartment hotel is ideal for those who want to cater for themselves, or who plan to enjoy the many good restaurants in Central Adelaide. The apartment is very spacious and comfortable, living room with fully equipped kitchen, separate bedroom (great bed and pillows!) and bathroom, all pretty new and comfortable. Ideally located for museums, art gallery and convention centre just across the road. Also close to the station. For good value, comfort and location I do't think you could beat this.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views

The Oaks Embassy is ideally situated on North Terrace and in a wonderful location for use of public transport. I am pleased to see that travellers are utilising the transport, in particular the free tram within the CBD. Thank you for sharing your experiences with everyone and for your advice when staying in Adelaide. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

We had a 2 bedroom executive serviced apartment. Convenient to tram, train station and city. Staff are friendly and helpful with availability of late check out for a minimal fee and able to request consumables that run out (detergent, bin liners etc). Unfortunately the pool and restaurant were under renovation but we were given option to use Oaks Horizon facilities. Spacious rooms, but noisy plumbing on all floors and close to outside noise from clubs/ pubs (one bed was up against the window so a bit drafty). Overall sufficient!

Friendly staff and very quick and easy check in. Comfortable setting even whilst under renovation. Clean and Great location. Two bedroom was actually two bedrooms rather than side by side beds! Missing glassware left us with two drinking glasses, but we had numerous wine glasses to use :). Tv in bedroom did not work but did not interfere with our stay. Moved a single arm chair for a better tv view to find underpants from a previous guest.. eww ! Good for a laugh.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment for one night with another friend, we found the rooms extremely clean, had all amenities, balcony looking over the ocean/adelaide ocean.
Service was fantastic and we wished that we could have stayed a few more nights.
The only downfall is the car parking. You need to make sure you book a spot when confirming your room, we were lucky enough to secure a park, our friend had to park across the road at the convention centre. Overall we will stay there again. So close to Rundle mall, train station, tram, hindley street.

Many thanks for writing about your recent stay with Oaks Embassy. I am happy to read that you not only enjoyed our central location, you also enjoyed the views from our balconies. Being a city hotel, parking is always limited so we do always suggest pre-booking. We also have additional car parking available in the Secure Car Park next to the hotel, payable to the hotel reception. We do look forward to seeing you next time you stay.

Unfortunately me and my colleage only got to stay here for 1 night on business but would have loved to had stayed longer.. We were given a 3 bed top floor apartment with outdoor hot tub and huge balcony with huge en suite, lounge, kitchen and dining room. Lots to chose from at breakfast and the staff were friendly and helpful and was very clean throughout. Shame we couldn't stay longer!

I stay at the oaks approx 3 times a year, always book it for my bday and then usually after festivals or for new yrs.
Love booking for my bday as they allow me to have 10-15 guests up to pre drink and there is always plenty of room and a good bone between lounge and balcony. In saying this is your a silly little kid looking to do this DONT ruin it for the rest of us. We are always very respectful and thankful for the hotel allowing us having that many people up. rooms are great, so clean and modern and easy to stay in. Great bathroom. Great lounge and kitchen facilities even though we ordered take away delivered good every evening -staff are great. This yr I told them I came often and was coming for my bday and they complimentary upgraded me. That was good as I felt they didn't do enough of that, they could include complimentary extras or something for regulars.
Only thing id change is having a bigger tv in the bedroom at the moment it's a tiny 18" or similar and it's just too small. But apart from that it's a great location, easy walking distance to everywhere and right near free city tram stop. Balcony is always a nice touch too. We usually rent a room over new yrs and my parents come over to watch the city fireworks for New Years from the balcony, great view and nice to watch from your own comfort. Just think it's excellent value for money for like $150 a night.. Will always return. Customer for life :)

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your recent stay at Oaks Embassy. It is great to read that you are a returning guest and that you enjoyed your stay once again. We are centrally based so our location makes it a great place to stay, especially for birthdays. Fire regulations to restrict the number of guests allowed in an apartment at one time, this is dependent on the size of each apartment. Reception can assist with any future stays so to ensure your stay is comfortable. We look forward to welcoming you back again for your next special occasion.

This hotel is perfectly convenient for attending a conference at Adelaide convention centre, which I did.
The hotel staff were very friendly and quite accommodating of a lot of students who were staying here for the same convention, many of whom were quite loud. The apartments were clean and relatively spacious, the beds were comfortable .
However, they were missing some simple amenities which make an apartment much more liveable, simple kitchen supplies such as salt, pepper and oil would have been appreciated, and the iron was very poor. Apart from that all appliances worked well.
