Oaks on Hobson vs. Oaks Residences vs. Bankside Apts.

Hi all,

Has anyone had any experiences - good or bad - with any of the above 3 apt. possibilities? Even better, can anyone compare any of the 3 with other apt. facilities.? We're looking for nice, but not expensive accomodations (apt with kitchenette & Laundry for 2 adults.)for 9 nights end of Jan. 2008. How are these for location, quiet, comfort etc.? From the maps and google, I know they are all relatively close to the CBD - any other info? TIA

Hi, we had a lovely couple stay here at our farm not long ago who had a really bad experience with Oaks Residences- the manager was extremely rude and very unhelpful, basically grunted at them when they said hello. From memory the desk is not staffed all the time, only between certain hours from what they saidBut when they booked they were not told that, so that was the first problem. The second was they were assigned an apartmnet that had not been cleaned since the previous guests- an easy mistake to make in that type of complex, but they were made to feel like they should have kept their mouths shut

Oaks on Hobson and Bankside Apts are both in the Top 10 of the hotel ratings on here. Oaks Residences is way down in the 30's and doesn't get a good review at all.

We stayed in an Oaks apt in Queens Town, seems the staff in all of their accommodation aren't known for the courtesy or manners but the accommodation is rated quite highly in most of them.

I would say have a read through the reviews which you can find on the tab at the top listed as hotels, just click on Auckland and it will list them all.

Hope you find something...................have a good time

We stayed at Quest Auckland (Apartments)a few weeks back in Upper Queen Street and found it very clean,modern and good.

Had good kitchenette with the dryer/wm in a very spacious bathroom. Good selection of furniture eg easy chairs and proper table and chairs, coffee table etc.

We asked for a park view (at the back it overlooks a park) which we got which had no traffic noise. It had a little balcony as well.

The secure underground parking was free which is a big bonus in the CBD. A lot of places you have to pay for parking or park on the street.

A very enjoyable stay.
