The hotel is positioned in a great spot at The Entrance. The Entrance Hotel is right next door and has a great vibe and lovely staff. The main reason I chose this place to stay was the pool. And we had beautiful weather to enjoy it for the weekend. The room was fine. I wish I could say it was... More

Stayed a couple of nights with my wife and 2 kids under 3. We were in a 1 bedroom apartment which was handy with 2 young kids. Our room was overlooking the rear lane which is not great but acceptable. The room was clean and the decor was practical and functional, and has aged well considering. Bathroom was ok too,... More

When I called the hotel to enquire about the rooms I was told by reservations that there was only two rooms left in the whole hotel and these were lofts. I could see on wotif that there were one bedroom apartments available. I told the girl there are one bedrooms on wotif and she advised me that if I purchased... More

Checked in for two nights on the 19th Jan. Upon checkin, I was greeted by a receptionist who seemed to be very disinterested. I was also told secure parking was an extra $15 per day. This is unheard of, and I stay in a lot of hotels. Secondly, $150 deposit with a credit card when they could've just taken my... More

Over the last few days we had the BEST time at this establishment. It turned out to be much more than we had expected. The best part was having quite a variety of attractions and amenities (we even had to pay the dentist an emergency visit!!) ALL within walking distance!! The room was clean, beds comfortable, kitchenette and laundry was... More

The hotel is tired! It needs a revamp. We choose to stay here because of its closeness to all of the activities around the waterfront but each time we have stayed have found faults in the rooms. Beds are comfortable and there are many eateries within close proximity to the hotel. As a return visitor to the hotel we are... More

Location of the Oaks Waterfront Resort is great. Just near the Pelican feeding at The Entrance. Major cafes and restaurants are just there around this resort. However if you don't get the room with the water view (which seems to be 35% more expensive) - your room will look at the huge parking area behind the hotel. Also it seemed... More

The oaks provided an underwhelming travel experience. Our January booking meant that the hotel was full of families. We were unable to get a seat at the pool or time in the spa after multiple attempts. Room was clean & comfortable on arrival but was not serviced throughout our stay. Our request for clean towels could only be accommodated if... More
