One-bedroom apartments are really spacious compared to some in the city and ours on 21st floor was quiet. Very pleased to get an upgrade from a studio this visit and the rates received using an Entertainment card were extra good value. Studios here are definitely compact, without a table, but quite OK for a short stay if you are out... More

This place is ok, would be good for a long stay. I was booked there thinking it was a hotel, but it's not. Does not have a restaurant or room service. Good location, grocery store and bottle shop downstairs. Don't be fooled by their claim of a chargeback cafe downstairs, it is just a greasy spoon takeaway. Long stay good,... More

The microwave did not work It was removed but not replaced until we spoke to reception. This venue is at the top of Lonsdale so is quiet Near the free... More

Stopped at the oaks on Lonsdale for 1 night prior to a cruise vacation. We were attracted by the great rates the hotel offered and the central location. It is a good 4 star hotel - rooms are roomy, beds are very comfortable and the service (the little we had) was good. We arrived really early and our room was... More

This was my first stay at this hotel. I chose it for the price and proximity to where I had a business meeting. I was pleasantly suprised with the whole experience. The check in / check out was prompt and friendly. The room was quiet/comfortable and very specious. There are also a number of eating,drinking and shopping options within the... More

The hotel was the perfect as a base for exploring all Melbourne has to offer and also a great place to come back to. Separate lounge, bathroom, huge kitchen and very clean rooms. The only drawback was paying for in-room wireless internet use, but that's a small price to pay for wonderful location/staff/room. Highly recommended!

Unfortunately there were three couples in our group and only two apartments available. The third had to live in the closet for two nights and... More
