We travelled to Melbourne from New zealand and were checked in by a member of staff who did not have a good command of English. We did not understand much of what he was saying but belived that he was telling us that we were going to pay in NZ Dollars and not Aus Dollars. We told him verbally that... More

Must say, the trip to Melbourne was made great by having to stay in this nice service apartment. Right next to Lonsdale road it was like a small germ sparkle in wide open sea. The maple tree in front of the room add the serenity to my room. What is great? The location , the room(bed next to balcony), the... More

One of the things I like most about staying in apartments is that it gives the feeling of being home, or a guest at a friend's place rather than a hotel. That's how I felt when I stayed in a one bedroom apartment at the Oaks Lonsdale. The apartment was modern, nicely furnished and well appointed, everything in the kitchen... More

I stayed for a 6 nights in a one-bedroom on the thirteeneth floor (halfway up the tower). It was on the north side (sunny, but afternoon intensity blocked by the mammoth tower across the street). The kitchen facility was well equiped, and the small grocery next door had all I needed for breakfasts and lunches. The coffee system was a... More

Large rooms and great location. Close to theatres and shops. One bedroom apartment had lots of room and has 24 hour reception. I will stay here again.

Overall, a good apartment well located in Melbourne. A couple of warnings though. If you think you'll get views like those shown on the Oaks website, forget it unless you're prepared to pay a premium price. The 2 bedroom apartments only seem to have windows in the lounge and master bedroom; everywhere else is pretty dark and dingy with no... More

I booked this Hotel online without any previous knowledge of the Hotel. I had read all sorts of comments about it but it seemed to be good value for a Two Bedroom Appartment. We were pleasantly Surprised with our Accomodation from start to Finish. Firstly, our appartment was huge- as big as many houses I've visited, and was fully equipped... More

We stayed at the Oaks on Lonsdale for two nights at a very, very reasonable rate. We drove in from North Williamstown and Melbourne was chaotic by comparison, but reception was very pleasant and let us park our car in the secure carparking (at $20 a night) early. One thing that did surprise us was how poorly planned the carparking... More

We stayed two nights at the Oaks on Lonsdale in Melbourne and would not stay there again. The apartments are clean and attractive, the service was fine, and the location is terrific, but the poor air circulation in the apartment was almost enough to drive us out. It was warm in Melbourne and very warm in the apartment, but the... More

We booked a one bedroom apartment which had a very spacious living/ dining area and kitchen (great when you are traveling with kids). The bathroom also had a good size and contained a washing/ drying machine. Cleanliness however was an issue. The floors where sticky and had dirty spots everywhere. Same thing with sofa and chairs. Bathroom cleanliness not convincing... More
