This is the second time we've stayed at Oaks on Lonsdale, and we enjoyed the second time just as much as the first. Our one bedroom apartment was very clean, provided lots of space for all the bags from our shopping expeditions, and gave us a good night's sleep in a king size bed. And it came complete with balcony... More

Long weekend with girlfriends. Booked a two bedroom apartment, had a kitchen too. Close to everything. Good value. We checked out on Sunday, they only had two staff on who were moving at a snails pace with a room full of quests waiting to check out. Whenever we had to ask questions from reception, they seemed a bit slow on... More

Having a great time here in Beautiful Melbourne. We love to compare this city to Barcelona and Montreal. There is many similarities and the food is great. The public transport is great too. The two rooms dont have heating which is only coming from the living room. The mattress are too soft. There is very little noise so that is... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment here. The apartment was modern and very clean.The apartment had a great view and it was fun to watch the hot air balloons go by in the mornings. Reception staff were very helpful and helped us get our bearings. There is a convenience store next door which was very handy. Although we didn't... More

We knew roughly where the hotel was (street number etc) but still found it hard to locate and had to drive around the block and try again. The hotel doesn't have much of a street frontage and the name above is not very prominent. Still, second time round we spotted it straight away and were able to stop right outside... More

The Oaks is perfectly positioned in the centre of the city and a few yards to the free tram, loads of good restaurants, the theatre and shopping. I had an apartment and it was perfect - lovely big lounge, kitchen with all amenities, good sized bedroom and bathroom. The standard is high and housekeeping is immaculate. Service in reception was... More

My friends and I stayed in this hotel as she was celebrating her hens weekend in the city. We checked into the room and we found the apartment a delight. The location was great, we even received extra towels to our room on request. Our disappointment came when we were charged for damages to the room. They accused us to... More

I stayed with 3 friends at the Oaks on Lonsdale overnight for a hen's night. The hotel was clean, spacious and comfortable. We checked in on the Saturday afternoon and left on the Sunday morning. What was a fantastic weekend for 4 girls (1 of whom is to be married soon) ended on a sour note when we were FALSELY... More

I saw the nice photos and the good reviews so I thought I would try this place. My Studio Apartment was like a hotel room with added sink and microwave oven - but when you leave the room, apart from having a reception desk, it no longer resembles a hotel. I estimate the room was about 22 square metres overall,... More
