“Great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Really enjoyed our stay at Oaks on William - places we wanted to visit were 600m away. (Vic Market, Hardware Lane). Exceptional view over the city for our first 2 night stay (and this was a cheap deal), unfortunately we had a view of concrete walls for our more expensive 1 night stay. Try and get a view - it's magnificent! Will definitely return.

Just got back from 4 nights in Melbourne and our stay at Oaks on William was great! Modern and spacious self contained apartment close to everything. Kitchenette was equipped with all that you could need - even a dishwasher. We will definately be going back to stay when we next visit Melbourne.

Room Tip: Front facing rooms have park views.

My partner and I stayed at Oaks on William for four nights in July 2013. We were in a top floor apartment with a spectacular view of the city. We booked on a discounted rate and we were still given a beautiful room. There was no street noise due to the high rooms

The apartment was cleaned efficiently every day of our stay and the staff were polite and helpful. There are many tram stations close by and we have no problems walking into the city each night for a meal.

Great stay would recommend this to anyone looking for a weekend away that leaves you feeling great.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view, ours was breathtaking.

We booked 2 rooms for a night and it was just the 2nd day that they opened for business. The hotel was located within walking distance to the CBD. Room was very clean as it was brand new! Bed was super comfy, loved the shower and room was reasonably sized. We did not get the room with a view of the garden though we imagined it would be much nicer. The staff at the reception was very friendly anf helpful. Will definitely stay there again. I just love new hotel rooms!

I stayed at this hotel, not realizing that it had only been open for one week. The staff members were welcoming, efficient and so willing to help in any way they could. The studio room was amazing - so spacious and clean with all fittings of high quality. The décor was really interesting - modern, funky, industrial style. The hotel is just across the road from Flagstaff Gardens and Flagstaff station so really convenient. This was just the place I wanted to return to at the end of a busy day. Hope the staff don't lose their sparkle - they make a difference!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing William Street - a very tall block looks straight in to rooms on the other sid...
