After reading some negative reviews we weren't sure what to expect. We had a great experience and would definitely return. Rooms were clean, modern and had everything we needed for our stay. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. It's in a great location - walking distance to most things in the CBD. Yes there's construction happening next to the building,... More

Very pleased with my 10 day stay here on business. It is very centrally located for the CBD, with good restaurants, shopping and bars all nearby. If you are looking to explore on a holiday it can be a bit of a bind getting in and out of the CBD, the apartments are really nice, modern, clean and have everything... More

The attempts by the management of this hotel to minimise the degree of impact of the major construction next door in replies to comments on this site are completely disingenuous. Make no mistake - there is MAJOR construction next door to this hotel that will be going on for some time and is very noisy. I was put in to... More

Stayed 3 nights in Brisbane with my wife. We had a 1 bedroom unit. The Oaks 212 Margaret is a great location for a stay in central Brisbane.

We were staying one night in a 1 bedroom apartment.

Our 1 bedroom apartment was a good size with nice, comfortable furnishings. Booked twin beds but arrived to a king, but they promplty remade up the beds. Views from our apt not a wow factor as closely surrounded by other tall buildings. If I was staying longer I'd try for a better view.
