Stayed here 2 weeks ago on a business trip, very nice no problems, However my husband has stayed here and didn't like it, said the room was small. I got a good room so I was fine with it. Had a lovely breakfast in the restaurant next morning

Being to Brisbane for the second time, i found the city lovely and beautiful. When my parents decided to come over for a vacation, i chose Oaks 212 Margaret for it's location, within the CBD. Arriving at the front desk, i felt the welcome just alright. The staff seemed...distracted, but still were effective and helpful, but they had some difficulties... More

Like to take your money when incorrectly book for the same day through wotif. Booking was to be for the 8th checking in at 1400. When booking was made it was1800. So you think they would call you to make sure it was right but instead they take that as an opportunity to take $245 from your card and you... More

Spent one night here and was surprised by how large and well maintained the rooms were. We had a 2 bedroom unit with a HUGE balcony overlooking the botanical gardens. Great price and conveniently located within the CBD!

Couldn't be happier with my recent stay at Oaks 212 Margaret. The room was a real surprise. It was huge. two bedrooms, two bathrooms, full kitchen and an enormous balcony. Value for money was exceptional. My only criticism is that the rate for parking is excessive. After pre booking my parking I discovered that the car park next door was... More

This is the third time we have stayed here now and we have had great experiences every time! Staff are really friendly, rooms are always really clean and the views are awesome! Unless you are really hungover then don't do breakfast at the restaurant down stairs.. The muesli was like cardboard ;)

Disappointed in our accommodation at 212 Margaret St. We rented a 2 bedroom apartment with river views for a week over New Year's Eve. Thankfully we did have views of the fireworks as this was our prime reason for selecting this facility and would have relocated if we could have found another hotel with river views two days before New...

We stayed at the penthouse. It was absolutely lovely but I put down a $150 bond (in case anything was damaged). We left it in perfect condition and I was told my bond would be refunded. It showed up as 'pending' on my account before completely disappearing. I HAVE STILL NOT RECEIVED MY MONEY! If managment could rectify the situation... More

Dear 983Kristen, Thank you for submitting your review. The $150 mandatory preauthorisation is essentially not a ‘bond’ whereby it is charged and refunded, but rather a freeze of these funds on your card. When the funds are released (or “unfrozen”), the pending transaction will not longer appear on your statement, as the funds have been cleared back. The fact that... More
