I stayed 3 days on business and for weekend. The flat is excellent. Very big, well furnished, great location etc. The only reason it didnt get full 5 stars is that wifi is free only for 30 minutes. I regard wifi as a basic service like electricity and will never give 5 stars to a hotel that doesnt offer unlimited... More

The apartment was great and had all amenities, we enjoyed the apartment as it was in a great location and close to all amenities within a shot 5 to 10 min walk. The views were some what disappointing as the apartment is along side multistorey buildings under construction, apart from that its really no bother.

The hotel is located in a central position with a short walk to many tourist attractions. However, it is showing its age. One of the doors to the balcony is stuck and the air conditioning unit outside is rusted. Don't expect a good night's sleep, either. There is a construction site neighbouring the hotel and the noise insulation is poor.... More

We stayed in the Oaks Margaret while visiting our son in Brisbane. The apartment was very high standard, serviced every day. It had more than enough storage, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. A separate bedroom, with a TV. There was a swimming pool, which was great as it was very warm, while we were staying in Brisbane. The location... More

Unprofessional, massive stuff around. Would defiantly not recommend. Additional charges for parking per night, plus a bond fee of $150, it just wasn't worth it. My friend and I had issues with getting the bond back as Oak's took more than a week and over 4 phone calls to release the bond back so that bank could process it. Such... More

Had a very pleasant stay here. The room was large and comfortable with fantastic views of the river and park. The staff were friendly and though there seemed to be some confusion about bookings, we ended up in our room. Great location close to the park, river and city. Will stay here again.
