“A winning start!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2013

This brand new property has renewed my faith in Apartment hotels. Of course being brand new helps. I was a little worried there may be some teething problems as with many new places but there was not one! On arrival (the opening night) I was given chocolates and sparkling wine to celebrate, a lovely welcome. All staff I met during the week were lovely and friendly, professional and very helpful. The rooms are styled well, modern gadgets, and the higher floors (was on 18) facing the park have great views. My room had an open balcony with table and chairs so might be a little dangerous with kids. The kitchen had everything you might need, on a smaller scale. The beds are amazing, definitely as good as the Westin beds if not better! Bathrooms are perhaps the only area I could mention anything slightly negative about which is that they don't have much room to put anything, not all that functional but can manage. Great shower heads. Gym is a good size and has a big range of modern equipment including a stretch station. Location in the city is fine, easy walk to most of the main areas. A little further to Southbank. Taxi's can be a little tricky as it's close to the corner of LaTrobe but the staff were helpful in trying flag them. Dry cleaning service they use seems to be a good one, more important to business rather than leisure travellers. As an apartment hotel there is no eating options within (other than your kitchen of course) but there is a cafe very close and plenty of eateries not to far away for eating out.

Overall an excellent first stay at this new Oaks, will be back for sure. Would recommend for anyone visiting Melbourne and wanting an apartment rather than a hotel. Well done and thank you to all the new staff.

Room Tip: The higher the better and facing the park is a great view.
