“Value for your money and much more!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

I paid next to nothing for a one bedroom apartment and I really dont want to leave.
All the staff are so nice, the hotel room is really clean and exactly what was advertised.4
The whole place made my weekend away amazing.
The restaraunt cooked great food and fast and not to mention the gym, pool, sauna... and my very own laundry. The aircon works straight away and you cant hear any other neighbours.
having sprinklers all over the roof is a bit scary and the internet is a bit expensive for what you get.
But the overall price is next to nothing...

I HIGHLY recommend this place and I want to stay longer.

I live in Byron Bay and you wouldnt get anything like this there... this is awesome.

Room Tip: Go for the one bedroom apartment.... Just DONT burn your cooking otherwise the $1000 fine is a bit s...

We had a lovely 8 night stay at this hotel, hotel was everything we expected rooms exactly as shown on the internet (a first for us, as they are not usually what you see). Only down stairs and you have a variety of restrauants, cafe, pubs to eat or 5 mins walk across the bridge and there are more choices. Reception staff were very friendly and assisted at every opportunity. We asked for a higher floor for the views and this was granted unfortunately we ended up on the Palmer St side of the hotel, views were lovely, but the smells from the rib cafe underneath was unpleasant sitting on the balcony, cooking started up early morning and went until late at night every day. The rooms very very clean and cleaning staff were great, but the blanket left (if you didn't want to use the doona on the bed) was very dirty! It needed a good wash maybe it is never taken out of the cupboard. We would stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the river side not overlooking Palmer St, smells from Rib cafe are not pleasant fr...

I stayed here for one night due to a delay requiring me to stay in Townsville. The hotel room had modern style decor. The room itself was a small self contained apartment. The room was very clean, comfy bed, and nice views over the river. It has a small lap pool to cool off. It has undercover parking on site. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is within walking distance to the restaurant row on Palmer Avenue and access to the downtown area. I recommend this hotel if staying in Townsville.

Well furnished, modern, clean rooms equipped with a little kitchenette (including dishwasher, washer and dryer!!!).
No room service but plenty of restaurants up the road.
Reasonably priced (booked on wotif).
Also go a free bee voucher for the pub downstairs. Alright!
Would recommended to others.

As an intermediate stay prior to an interstate move Oaks M was a good place to stay for four nights without going over our accom budget.

The room, whilst straight foward and basic on one of the lower levels, was well fitted with its kitchenette and air con suited to the sub-tropical climate. Amenities in room were well equipped and housekeeping were vigilant in servicing the room - knocking even with the do not disturb sign on the door!

Perfect room for a couple or business person, being in convenient reach to local attractions and eateries. A room overlooking the water would be beautiful.

Room Tip: If you're after a nice view - go for a water view - not carpark view!

Stayed at Oaks M for a week for business. The room I was given on checkin had a really noisy air conditioner and when I enquired about changing rooms staff were very helpful and moved me to a room across the corridor. A/C worked a treat, room and bathroom was very clean, nice big bed and TV, kitchenettes good enough for a week and the view was great. It really is worth paying a little extra for a room with a view at the front of the building. There's plenty of free undercover parking on site and the restaurant strip of Palmer St is only a very short walk away. My only complaint is rooms have a wierd dual door setup and the doors slam shut loudly no matter how hard you try to close them quietly. I had neighbours who were always going in and out of their room and the loud door slams were really annoying but it wouldn't put me off from staying here again.
