Reviewed April 16, 2013

we have stayed at the Oaks before and found it very nice for a weekend away,we have stayed at a few hotels in Auckland city and we feel this hotel is very good for the price.
The place is always very clean , the showers and toilet spotless and the bed comfy.
The location is very handy to queen st, we found it an easy walk to the waterfront,sky city and Vector arena.We would stay again and would recomend this hotel as an ideal base for a central city stay.

We had a two night stay in an apartment with two bedrooms although we did not need the very small second bedroom. Both our bedroom and the living areas were clean, spacious and well equipped with all the facilities needed for a self support stay. The free WiFi worked well and the staff were friendly and helpful. Its about a 15 minute walk down hill to the water front but there are some quite reasonable restaurants closer and a convenience store nearby if you wish to stock up and look after yourself. The parking area is a bit tight but cheap enough and I would certainly stay here again.

I booked this on Wotif as it was a good deal. The Hotel was fine. It is basic but was clean and tidy. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. There was car parking available at $20 per night. The complimentary continental breakfast I got with the room was - fruit juice in a small carton, yoghurt, muesli bar, a bit of cake and a banana. I had a room facing the main road but didnt hear anything. The bed was very comfortable.

Great efficiency apartment type room. Was a little concerned about noise when I realized we were right on the back of the main police station, but no worries at all! Clean, spacious and everything you could need while travelling.

Good comfortable, clean room and very useful to have laundry facilities in our room when travelling. It was cool and we both slept well. We could not hear our neighbours at all. It was convenient to have a breakfast brought to our room but it was a bit sweet for our taste. Sugar in the orange juice and cake.

Great place for a family, we had a 2 bedroom apartment, self contained and we got a continental brekkie each day and it was serviced daily. The location was fantastic, 2 mins walk to Skycity area and 10 min walk to Viaduct.
