Stayed 3 night 3,4,5th october. I think it was a deluxe room looking over the Flagstaff gardens.
Brand new, looked like no one had even stayed in our room before us. King bed extremely comfortable ( none of the dreaded roll to the side!) good lighting, nice balcony, great kitchenette. Very helpful knowledgable staff, we are from Sydney so needed a lot of guidance and they were great.
I would lime to make some comments in regards to some other reviews:
Parking - the parking lot was full so we parked on one just around the corner. On the weekend this was just $5 a day, cant complain about this. We didn't use the one the front desk recommended as it was dearer and further away. This was our choice,as it is a choice all others can also make.
Supermarket - there is as small IGA around the corner, down the road. About a 4 min walk from room to shop. It is not the oaks fault they do not have a shop right next door. Why would people rate a hotel based on this?
Location - not right in cbd, anyone can access google maps and clearly see this before booking. I thought it was nice to be a little away from the madness of the main shopping area. Free tram out the front, and also normal team out front. Train station across the raid, very easy.
Ceiling- someone commented it wasn't finished. This is not true, it is concrete which is very modern at the moment, i liked it as it meant the room was very quiet.
Toilet - yes very close to bed but as i say if you are comfortable enough with a person to share a bed why be embarrassed by normal bodily functions? Just turn the tap on if you are worried.
Our room was down the end of the corridor and was very very quiet. We dint hear another person the whole time, no street noise and you could jot hear the tram bells at all ( which can be annoying every 2 mins).
Overall it was a very nice stay.
