Just back in Sydney from a 5 day leisure trip to Melbourne.
I'd booked at the Alto but after reading about the Oaks, cancelled it and booked here, and very glad I did.
Stayed on my own in a Studio suite which was immaculately clean and very comfortable. Kitchenette was great - just a toaster, kettle, stove top and microwave and fridge but I just did toast and cereal.
Bed was very comfortable, sofa very good, and the LCD TV can swivel to any angle in the room. They also have a very basic TEAC CD player
Service was excellent. Check in was a breeze and staff very warm and friendly at all times. I think the hotel was full for the first 2 nights of my stay but you'd never know it from the Staff's friendly, relaxed demeanour. And every guest I met in the lifts or the lobby was happy and friendly as well, so all-in-all a very nice place to be.
Reception was up within 5 minutes when I reported a lack of a 'do not disturb' sign, and room service was equally efficient at bringing my meal in 20 minutes.
I ate breakfast once in the restaurant, basic but nice scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, hash browns, toast, cereal, fruit, yoghurt, tea, coffee, juices etc.
It was great being in such a central but quiet location. So may nearby hotels are either on main roads, in back alleys, or near noisy cafes or bars.
I was really impressed and will definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.
