“Position and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2008

My husband and I spend three delightful nights at the Oaks on Lonsdale. We have stayed in a number of Melbourne apartments over the years and we found the Oaks on Lonsdale to be the best. VERY quiet and we were on the 6th floor ( so not terribly high) but we heard no traffic noise at all.We asked about pillows which were not so high and immediately we were given low pillows. For convenience the Parliament underground is only metres away and the circle tram the same. Parks nearby and shops very close. Altogether top parks to the Oaks!

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment at Oaks on Lonsdale for 5 nights and found the apartment excellent. As the apartment only opened last year the apartment was very clean and very modern. The kitchen was fully equipped with a stainless steel fridge, oven, stove, dishwasher, kettle, toaster and had all the necessary cooking/eating utensils. I loved the timber flooring, sofa, coffee table, lounge, plasma, our balcony and outdoor setting and the bedroom was spacious with a nice comfy bed (and PLENTY of pillows). The bedroom also had a small plasma mounted on the wall and inside the wardrobe was also an ironing board and iron. The bathroom was also spacious and had an inbuilt laundry with a washer/dryer (which we did struggle to operate as instructions were not too clear).

I cannot think of anything that I disliked about my stay here except for the fact there was no shower curtain which meant that I had to be careful I did not turn the tap on too much during my shower else I found that the floor of the bathroom ended up in a puddle. I also had a minor incident with the hairdryer as when I plugged it into the power socket it ended up in smoke immediately and I feared this would set off the fire alarm. We called reception and within 5-10 minutes a replacement hairdryer was brought to our room.

The room cleaning service was also great as we came back each day to a neatly made bed. Reception was also helpful as often we'd seek their assistance in calling a taxi to go to certain locations.
