I had the opportunity to revisit this Hotel, although was sceptical after being disappointed on my first visit. I am pleased to review again in the light of staying in a two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment, which was very spacious and had a balcony view of Story Bridge. The rooms were very comfortable and nicely decorated. The Balcony was spacious enough for... More

Stay here a couple of times now for work. There are a couple of pro's and con's to the place: Pro's - GREAT location. Very close to the river and a bunch of good restaurants. - good gym and swimming pool (would be better if the pool was heated though. 6am swims take your breath away!) - clean and comfortable...

My husband and I and his parents stayed here in November 2014 for 3 nights. We had a nice 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment on the 9th floor (I think). The apartment was lovely and clean (compared to the last time we stayed here). The beds and pillows were amazing. We enjoyed our stay here this time much better then... More

We stayed here for one night in a two-bedroom apartment (not the first time) and found the overall hotel facilities first class, clean and comfortable. Reception staff was efficient and very friendly. The location was amazing, close to the Brisbane River with the CityCat and City Hopper within walking distance and so many restaurants and cafes to choose from. Highly... More

Disappointed to be asked for a credit card deposit of $150, for extras/damages! No minibar, room paid for by corporate booking. Told the $150 dollars would be refunded to my account in 7-10 days. A nice little earner to have all of those funds . Rooms are adequate though not spacious, towels old, lots of noisy neighbours( despite being asked... More

I trust the preauthorisation was released back to your credit card in a timely fashion. Thank... More

Stayed here for a week, nice apartment for visitors and families. I guess most of the rooms comes with kitchen and utensils. Beds were queen and comfortable. Both sides views or good, i prefer the one over looking story bridge. Since so many rooms in this apartment, the parking availability is not sufficient. Guest parking is mixed with resident parking... More

Once again- I wish TA had a rating between average and very good. This oaks is in a great location and if you get a room facing the river it has great views over the storey bridge.

We had a 2 bedroom apartment on the 55th floor. The view was to die for. Absolutely stunning. As a local resident, I've never seen brisbane from this level. Apartment was clean, a great size for 3 people and well fitted out. There is nothing I could fault. Lifts were slow but worth it for the amazing views that the... More

I stayed at the Oaks with my partner for one night and all I can say is that it was a huge mistake. Staff were rude, we were told to pay ridiculous fees that have still not yet been returned when we were told they would be and overall, not worth it at all.
