“Great location facility average”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

I stayed there on a recent regular business trip. Rooms could do with a bit more care, feels like they get a quick brush over which creates a holiday camp 'ambiance'. Lots of rules, I suppose you need them in that sort of facility, almost like its on suburb. Facilities would be good for families, the cost is reasonably high but the facility is more what you would expect of a budget place, it must be the location. The Álex' is close for meals and excellent value as is a number of other places for meals. Or cook in and add to the 'ambiance'.

I was at the Oaks resort as a couple's getaway with my sister and our boyfriends. It was a spur of the moment thing with only 3 weeks notice in the high-season but the room we got was absolutely lovely. It was spacious and had a lovely view which we could easily see the ocean with breakfast on the veranda. The pool is also more like a lagoon with a hidden little pool at the top end which was nice to relax in after the beach. The location is fantastic and within a generous walking distance from the main shopping center if you do not have a car. Otherwise there are plenty of little shops along the beach front to keep you happy.
We never had an issue with the room and there were plenty of kitchen utensils to cook for the 3 nights we were there.
Overall, a wonderful stay!

Room Tip: The higher up you are the better the view is, even more so because the families with little children...

we booked a "penthouse" through this site as a last minute deal, the apartment would have been very nice in 1990 and it seems like nothing has been done to the room since then. the coffee table had rust all over it, cracked and damaged tiles throughout, the doors to the balcony had worn out seals which resulted in a constant whistling sound throughout the night, the foxtel sound kept turning off during shows.

the view and location was excellent though

Thank you for sharing your experience at Oaks Seaforth Apartments. I am very pleased to hear that you enjoyed the location of the apartments. I am sorry that the overall standard did not meet your expectations. We are currently embarking on a refurbishment programme for our apartments. We are aiming to lift the overall standard by modernising these rooms and bringing them inline with the 4 star standard of Oaks vision. I will certainly take all your comments into consideration and I thank you for them.

We stayed in one of the apartments just for one night and if we were to come back we would definitely stay here again. The apartment was a good size, clean and modern with all the amenities you would expect for an extended stay.

The Oaks Seaforth is located just across the road from the beach. The pool area and gardens are just lovely but the one bedroom apartment we were in could do with a makeover. However it was clean & tidy and had everything you could want with dining area, kitchen with fridge, microwave dishwasher etc, lounge area, washer dryer, queen bed, spa bath, shower and balcony. Unfortunately though I didn't find the bed or pillows very comfortable.
There was an undercover secure parking area and the staff on checkin were lovely.

Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay at Oaks Seaforth. The apartments are fully self contained with everything you need for a pleasant holiday. The property is looking at refurbishing shortly, however, the bedding, pillows etc should always be comfortable and up to a good standard. I appreciate this honest feedback in order to improve our standards at the resort.

We stayed on the 6th floor (top floor) in a one bedroom apartment. The apartment was huge and we even got a spiral staircase on our balcony that led up to a private rooftop area (that led onto the rooftop). We also had great views of the ocean and the lagoon area was really lovely. The only let down was the bedding, the mattress was really average and the sheets and doona were really cheap quality. If you are lucky enough to get a top floor apartment leading up to the roof - be sure to check out the sunset. Was amazing!

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the top floor!

Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay at Oaks Seaforth. It seems like you were upgraded complimentary to a 1 bedroom family ocean. Many of our top level apartments are penthouses, with a roof top area. To guarantee these apartments additional costs are normally incurred, however, we are happy that you were able to enjoy these additional facilities during your stay.
We are happy you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon

We stayed in a 3 bedroom self contained apartment that faced into the suburbs. The rooms were clean tidy and functional. The view was okay but access to the beach (over the road) was really good. As noted by other reviews the pool area, location etc is central Alexander Headlands, front row facing the beach, above a smaller shopping strip. Ideally located for families and couples alike

Room Tip: we stayed in 323, whilst it faced the suburbs... this was okay
