So I arrived from Adelaide without my baggages (don't take Qantas/Jetstar anymore, my baggage was lost in transit and they didn't even apologise and didn't even show that they are concerned and would like to help me get it back as soon as possible)... Arrived early in the morning ~7am looking miserable but Steve was very helpful at the hotel...

We're Aucklanders (East) ourselves and just wanted to stay somewhere nearby but a bit different for a weekend break! We got it just right with the Oaks. The location feels peacefully tucked away with great views of the city and harbour bridge. Easy access to the city by ferry or car. We had the car and were able to explore...

My partner and I have stayed at many hotels around the country, from 4 star and up. The Oaks completely blew us away, the first deserving of a 5 star rating. The place was extremely clean, the staff awsome and so very friendly and helpful. As soon as we got to our room, the stresses of everyday life soon dissappeared....

Myself and my partner stayed here for 12 nights mid April 2012. We had a sky view room, it was very spacious, light and very clean. The hotel itself is lovely and all the staff do a really good job.

The gentleman behind the desk was patronizing but this may have been his poor humour which I found inappropriate plus the fact that he started helping another guest with an inquiry whilst...
