Dear Liz D thank you for taking the time to write a review about your stay! The ocean view rooms are certainly most people’s favourite. And correct, for a studio it is remarkably equipped. This offers our guests the unique experience of “home away from home” Oaks Waterfront is able to offer. I will definitely pass on this positive feedback... More

We stayed in the studio room on a Groupon voucher and it was just what we needed for a weekend away. Not a resort as such, but great sized rooms (prev stayed in one bedroom) clean and comfortable. Great location and no need to drive anywhere as everything is at your doorstep. Staff very helpful and friendly. Will return again.

My wife and kids visited this place and had a great time. My daughter left her teddy she got as a present from her grandad (who recently passed away) at the hotel. My wife has tried to follow up a few times and the response/effort from the reception staff is really poor. Lovely break but really poor customer service and... More

Thank you for your feedback, I am so glad your family had a great stay and I am sorry we were unable to locate your daughters teddy bears. I have since spoken to your wife and understand the sentimental value behind the bears. I personally re checked the apartment and also contacted the linen company but unfortunately were unsuccessful in... More

We enjoyed our stay here as it was well located close to shops and restaurants and had a great view. Car parking on site at $15 per night is too much though. Hotel should have more room for cars to park while checking in. Room was a good size. Family restaurant downstairs but service for breakfast a bit slow.

We Stayed here over a weekend, had a beautiful room overlooking the ocean and lake, close enough to view the pelican feeding from our balcony. Clean, warm, and comfortable. The concierge staff were friendly and helpful catering to all of our needs. We do recommend staying here.
