We were staying one night in a 1 bedroom apartment. Now I know that the Hotel has no control over workmen digging up the footpath directly outside the front door but we contacted the hotel twice before arriving and it was not mentioned to us. It would have been nice to know for our arrival as it did make access... More

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.

We stayed four nights while working at QUT, location was very handy to the free shuttle between the city campus and Kelvin Grove, as well as to the central shopping areas. The apartment was spacious and contained everything we needed to self cater, do laundry etc. While there is construction in the area we were high enough up that this... More

The good points? The staff are friendly and the rooms are large. Kitchen and laundry facilities in the apartments are good if you want to self cater as a family or for longer visits. The balconies are huge, and the view is nice. The bad points? Expensive wi-fi, cleaning is sub-standard (mould in bathroom, visible clogging in vanity drain), digital... More

I stayed at Oaks Margaret for one night in June 2014. I've stayed at most of the Oaks locations around Brisbane at one time or another, and it's a fairly generic experience. Within the bounds of the very standardised Oaks package, however, Margaret 212 was quite good. Service was friendly and welcoming, and I was able to park my car... More

Good central location with shops and restaurants nearby but noisy due to building work going on next door. Staff were friendly and helpful but only half hour free wifi for only one device per room was a big let down.

Nice hotel and great location. Only problem is that cleaning isn't thorough, was searching for a coin I dropped and looked under the bed when I saw a used tampon. Absolutely disgusted, wasn't far under so couldn't of been easily missed.

It offered all the comfort for a business trip and the room is large with different space to work in, it is quiet as well. It is located near some good places to eat in, i specially liked a Irish pub nearby. It is a couple of minutes from shopping locations and the south bank as well.
