4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

We arrived at 11am and room not quite ready but storage room to put bags. Quick walk over walking bridge and you are in heart of Darling Harbour. Magic!
Upon return to hotel we were given complimentary upgrade from 1 bedroom apartment to two story, two bed, 3 bath apartment on very top floor! Views were amazing, especially lights at night. Absolute WOW!
I was sceptical about staying at hotel after reading reviews but we loved it!!! Apartment was very spacious and fully equipped, serviced daily. Extremely comfy great beds too. We were even greeted by our lovely check in man each time we walked through lobby.I would absolutely stay again!!!

Room Tip: Try and get room 1331!!! Magic!

Little apartment has a very steep staircase and two ladies on our own struggled to get the luggage to the bedrooms on the second floor. Paint work marked and the whole place was tired! Bathrooms basic and shower leaked and water ran on the floor. No Aircon, fan or ventilation in the second bedroom. Only a/c duct in the main bedroom down the hall. Very hot and couldn't sleep. The noise from the Aircon return vent was like having a truck in the room. We had to be moved to another apartment that had a/c. This was after one bad night and we had to re pack. I asked for just me to be moved to a single room and they would not. Manager (who was all of 20) tired very hard not to have to move us and convince me that a floor grate was the Aircon ! Room rate expensive and very poor value for money. I don't think they work on return business, capitalising on the convention centre market. Good luck now that the Sydney Convention centre is closing for 4 years for refurbishment!!

Room Tip: I don't know because they are all noisy from people going past on the timber board walks. A free...

We spent four nights in a one bed apartment and were very pleased with our accommodation. We had just finished a fabulous Celebrity Solstice cruise and so could very easily have been disappointed with any where we stayed! On first entering the apartment I thought it was quite dismal but we quickly recovered and appreciated the amenities on offer. Sadly :-) , I decided to do all my laundry before our long journey home to Scotland. Tea, coffee etc, towels,washing cloths cleansers and even machine washing powder were constantly replenished. The 'sea view' was a bit tricky especially if you are not keen on stepping out on to a kind of open balcony! We did not use the indoor pool but to be honest it did not look too appealing. Long narrow pool and old fashioned tiling.
Conclusion : spotless accommodation, fabulous location and will stay there again if we are fortunate enough to return to beautiful Sydney.

Goldsbrough Apartments in Darling Harbour is an excellent location from which to explore the many attractions of Sydney. We were upgraded from a studio to an apartment which made the value for money even better than it was. The apartment was tastefully furnished with a very comfortable bed. The check in/out were handled in a friendly manner with a minimum of fuss. The only annoying thing was the slowness in getting a lift during non peak times.

The oaks is fantastically located right in darling harbour. The staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms clean, comfortable and spacious. Whilst not a luxury location, the oaks provides great value for money and I would definitely stay again.

My only suggestion is perhaps a system to request not all the towels be changed quite so frequently.

Friendly, helpful Staff. Comfortable home away from home. We come to Darling Harbour once a year for trade shown and this is the best stay for us yet.

Full of amenities!

Looking forward to the completion of the new convention Centre so we can be back at our new Darling Harbour place!
