Considering we paid over AUD 500/night for a 2-bedroom apartment, this was not good value. I would have paid that for a nice clean room (and have paid more in the past), but this just felt grotty. Walls marked, cockroaches, stained carpets, hard thin towels, filthy windows, dodgy sliding door locks. Yuck - just yuck! Complex layout also quite bizarre... More

Thank you for your post. I do apologise that the apartment standard did not meet your expectations. You are correct, as the building is heritage listed and was established in the 1800’s as a wool store. The open atrium and the original hardwood floors have been maintained to uphold the authenticity that it was created. We also have an ongoing... More

We loved staying at the Oaks Goldsbrough. The rooms were well fitted out with kitchen and washing machine & dryer. The only downfall was an ugly wall to look at from our balcony that could be fixed with wall planting or painting. Nice facilities for swimming, spa pool, sauna and gym but we were too busy to use these much.... More

Good location but we have previously stayed in a larger room (i bedroom apartment I think) this room's bathroom was very small with a w/machine squeezed in - not much room! Room's outlook was a brick wall - didn't think to decipher which side of the building we were on. Shower had a leak out onto the floor - we... More

I was shocked when I entered the building. I did ask the Concierge (older man) if I could get some help with my bag. He said to use the lift for the disabled from the street. I had no idea how it worked. He said it had instructions on it how to use it but I couldn't see them. I... More

Our room was very disappointing. Paid $410 with the wotif mystery deal advertised as a 4 star hotel. It was far from that. Bed was firm and uncomfortable. Bathroom was dated, confined and smelt like it had a sewerage problem. The carpet was old and stained. The walls were paper thin and woke up to people talking and walking around... More

I stayed for two weeks on a business trip. The room was very dated and in major need of refurbishment. Would agree with other comments about the internet connectivity, it was atrocious.

The apartments are nice and comfy, quiet for sleeping and an easy walk to Darling Harbour and the city. Parking is $30 per 24 hours, a lot cheaper than most places in the city.
