“Great location, well equipped accommodation”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

We stayed 2 nights in the Oaks Embassy and were very pleased with its central location giving us easy access to attractions and shopping. The rooms were well decorated and well equipped-we even had a spa bath-very nice. There was a dvd, tv, fully equipped kitchen area etc. I was very impressed and would definitely dtay again.

Stayed here four nights for business - it's a good option for accommodation in this price range. Check in service staff are fast, efficient and helpful, rooms well appointed, modern and spacious - very similar to other Oaks options in other cities. Only small downside is the tricky parking if you have a larger hire car. Within 15 min walking distance of Gouger Street for evening meals, and plenty of nice running/walking tracks close by, as there is easy access to the Torrens Rivers. Tram is at the door - takes you down to Glenelg beach within 30-35 minutes - nice for an evening dinner with colleagues.

I stayed at Oaks Embassy in a one bedroom apartment for two nights on business in February 2013. I note the mixed reviews for this property so it could be that I was just lucky, or maybe the management had attended to some of the concerns raised. My experience of the hotel was this: I had two excellent nights' sleep--the room was very quiet. The room was also very clean and well appointed. A feature that I thought was good was the inclusion of a drier and washing machine. I've been in plenty of apartments where this isnt included, so top marks for that. I also liked the balcony and the view from the 12th floor included views of the Torrens River, though of course there were lots of city buildings as well. The location right next to the train station and the tram line is also another bonus. The price was also very good, though probably a 'special' at $146 a night. About the only downside I could see was the lack of a bar or restaurant for evening meals, though there are plenty of eating places nearby. The breakfast offered wasn't overly expensive but was average. Given the same deal, I'd definitely stay at the Oaks Embassy again.

Room Tip: Leave the car behind!

I recently stayed at the Oaks Embassy for a quiet getaway with my partner. At 4:00am we were awoken by two male security guards knocking on our door claiming we had extra people in the room, despite us being there alone and stating so. They insisted on searching our room whilst my partner slept despite my protests. The security guards offered no explanation of where these claims were coming from or an apology when they found no extra guests. Upon raising our concerns with the hotel we were told rather abruptly and rudely they own the hotel and have the right to search anyone's room at any point in time. Do not waste your time unless you feel like being violated and belittled. I WILL NEVER BE STAYING HERE AGAIN!!

When the first thing that greets you when you enter the room is the stench from stinky drain pipes you know this might not be the most princely place you have ever stayed at. We stayed in an executive 1 bedroom apartment on the 16th floor. We weren't game to use the spa as its general grubbiness and overall tired appearance made us concerned we might catch something from it. Tiles missing and lovely black scuz in the shower, broken kick board under the dishwasher, cracked glass cupboard doors in the kitchen. The chairs at the table were so high you could barely squeeze your legs under the table to eat. Our 18 month old daughter entered the room with clean feet each day, but after a little playing and running around on the carpet and tiles her feet would end up black! Not what you would normally expect at home, let alone in a hotel room! Portacot had a gaping great hole at the end which for a younger baby would surely make it unsafe. Had to pay an extra fee to use it which would have bought 3 new ones by the end of our week long stay. The room served its purpose (ie a safe place to sleep) and the hotel seemed secure enough, but would I recommend it or stay here again. No, not unless I had too. There are plenty of other places in the city to try so for me this was yet again another Oaks underwhelming experience.

We were 5 adults staying at the Oaks Embassy from the 2-6th January 2013 in a 2 bedrooms deluxe appartment. The hotel is very good, it has everything you need for your stay, good location and the beds are very comfortable.
Only inconvenience is that you have to pay for parking but would recommend this hotel.

I stayed four nights from boxing day. I arrived 9.30am, after traveling for 10hrs, and they were very good in providing me with a room straight away, instead of waiting until 2pm check in. The room was good, except that the kitchen utensils was somewhat lacking. Broken can opener, no vege peeler, no frypan, and not enough crockery. The auto ignition on gas stove was broken too. Otherwise, good location, very close to railway station, the mall, and free bus service at front door. I would stay again. I didn't find it noisy, my room was on 9th floor.
