This is a big complex with a mix of residential and hotel apartments. Part of the old wool stores building, it is a shame that more attention wasn’t directed to retaining some of the charm of the old buildings. I think the dollar may have been the driver here.

For a family holiday the apartments have everything you need although things are a little tired. They offer a three and a four star option and we opted for the four. Given that we noted a state of ‘tired’ I probably wouldn’t be risking the three star option.

Noise can be a problem – the crazy open space that runs ground floor to roof top is an enormous chamber with no insulation whatsoever and just a myriad of metal staircases and walkways. When the revellers come home from a night on the town you do tend to hear them. Take plugs if you are a light sleeper.

Pool, spa and gym area are fantastic and , at least, in this part of the building, the charm has been kept. Very impressive pool – perfect for laps. Excellent spa. Strangely only accessible by wandering through the hotel reception (yes – bad design!)

Sydney’s retro monorail can be accessed from one of the floors but the whole place really seems very remote. It is a fair hike to find anything supermarket like so if you are self catering the circle route into the CBD via monorail (15 minutes) is your best bet. Darling Harbour is close by for eateries but it is still a 10 or so minute walk by the time you get out of the maze that is this building.

If we got it for a good rate we’d stay again but really do prefer something that is a bit more in the action.

We stayed in these apartments for 4 nights with our 3 children and despite the fact that the outside area around the apartment resembled a prison, we would definitely stay here again.
The apartment had two floors, two double bedrooms and an extra bed for one of the children. We had 2 bathrooms, one with shower and one with bath. The main bedroom had stunning views of the Sydney skyline. The other bedroom was tight on space and you had to keep the blinds down at all times , as you overlooked the outside area.
The pool was narrow but attractive and we spent some time in the excellent jacuzzi!
A lift ride and short walk to level 2, via a bridge took you right to the monorail which gives you access to the whole of Sydney.
Lots of choice re restaurants in Darling Harbour, although you could cook in the apartment if you wanted to. We had breakfasts there, took a packed lunch and ate in restaurants every evening.
Sydney is an amazing place and there is so much to do, we could have spent 2 weeks here.
When we visit Sydney and we would go back tomorrow, we will stay at The Oaks again!

After staying there for a week, I realized that more than a half of the rental was for the location. The location was superb just cross a small road to darling harbour, monorail station and harbourside shopping centre. It was convenience as they had car parking provided with 19$ charge. Other than that, it seemed to be this apartment was not really money value. Don't excpect too much with the staff. They will be only your receptions nothing else, check in -out. You have to take care all of your luggages yourself. Air volatile in the room was very poor when cooking. Some days the room was not cleaned properly only throwed garbage away. Toilet items such as soap, shampoo etc. were poor quality (three stars hotel in Vientain or in remoted Thailand even used higher quality items). Shower cap was not provided. I never stayed in other hotels in SYD so not sure if this things were Sydney hotel standard. So compare with other hotels carefully. Swimming pool had a very strong chlorine. Be careful if you are easily allergic.

on arrival for check in , which we waited in a long line for almost an hour, i must say the apartment was well worth the wait, we had a two bedroom apartment with magnificent views of darling harbour. the hotel has an indoor pool , also very centrally located to all its city sights ' train station a five minute walk, right on darling harbour which you can access from the second floor.
a 1 minute walking distance and you are at all shops, restaurants, mono rail, buses, convention centre, ferrys and much more

Stayed here in a studio apartment for a week on business. Great to stay somewhere different from the usual bland hotel experience.
The room itself was fine, bathroom modern and clean, kitchen was well equipped and all working although a little dated. Servicing and heating/cooling were all up to the mark.
Positives
+ Location - Darling harbour and right by the monorail stop
+ Pool, spa and gym clean and well equipped
+ Decent TV with Foxtel sports

Negatives
- Lifts old, slow and not all working, had to wait several minutes at busy times
- If you're not harbour facing then the view of a brick wall/car park was not great but then again I got a discount rate and it's not like I was on holiday.
- A little noisy from wooden corridor outside and room above, as others have stated this is an apartment block not just a hotel

Personally I won't be staying here again I think there is better value to be had elsewhere, but it was not an unpleasant experience.
