We stayed here for 4 nights with 2 kids and we were confronted with no access to reception from the road other than to lug all your bags up stairs and then to find more stairs to get into the room, this would be ok with 1 case but with a family and large suitcases it was a ball breaker.... More

I am sorry that the overall standard did not meet your expectations. Oaks Goldsbrough is a heritage listed building that was established in the 1800’s as a Wool Store. The open atrium, original hardwood floors and the lighting fixtures have been maintained to uphold the authenticity that it was created. Thank you for your comments regarding the stairs at the...

We stayed in Oaks 2 bedroomed apartment from 25 Oct 2013 till 01 Nov 2013. The apartment is completed with a kitchenette/washing machine/dryer/hair dryer/ironing board. It is perfect for traveling with family. The only drawback is the temperature of the water. The temperature is unstable if 2 persons taking a shower at the same time. The Oaks has a superb... More

This is an old wool storage shed converted into a hotel with permanent accommodation as well. Whilst it is close to everything and has character the noise levels are high. The rooms have polished floor boards in all but the bedrooms. I had sleepless nights as you could hear the people walking in the open corridor outside the room and... More

OaksGoldsbrough, Manager at Oaks Goldsbrough Apartments, responded to this review

Thank you for post. I am sorry to hear that your sleep was disturbed. It is true that as the building has an open atrium and the original hardwood floor from the 1800’s, noise can travel between levels. We do try to monitor this by doing regular nightly patrols and having additional security on during the weekends. We also place... More

I initially thought that I had made a bit of an error booking this hotel. I am normally very careful about checking reviews before booking – a long story that I won’t bore you with but, basically, I didn't on this occasion. So, having paid my non-refundable deposit to my travel agent, I then found a host of bad reviews... More

This hotel was an unexpected delight for the price having never been to Sydney before. For a very reasonable price we got a large one bed room with washer and dryer within walking distance to Darling Harbor for less than it would have cost for a name brand hotel room closer to Darling Harbor and a kit cheaper than the...

Like any accommodation, there are pros and cons to Oaks Goldsbrough apartments - and I have to say the cons are hardly going to cause the end of the world as we know it.

Dear Baileybum, Thank you for your valuable feedback, we appreciate it.

This converted old wool store has pretty much all you need for a studio apartment, but its a bit tired inside, but quiet and does the job. I feel safe, slept well, and its close to an interesting part of the world. Hunt for a good price though, it is competitive over here.

We stayed in a one bedroomed apartment which we found a little cramped and tired. The staff were friendly and helpful enough and the location is fantastic with a direct walkway from the hotel through to Darling Harbour. Good gym, spa and pool. Overall pretty average because of cramped room despite great location to explore Darling Harbour and Sydney
