Great Anniversary Stay”
We visited Melbourne for the first time for our Anniversary, choosing to stay at the Oaks on Lonsdale Apartments was a win, win situation!!! Professional staff, beautiful apartment, location was so central to all Melbourne had to offer and actually being in the City and yet very quiet!!! What more could you ask for??? We will be back!!!
Consistently good hotel choice”
the recent stay was overall a pleasant experience. the staff were courteous and friendly in attending to my queries. oaks (i have stayed in other oaks locations in melbourne cbd) has managed to stay consistent in its properties in delivering quality service and facilities.
Great location near theatres and restaurants”
The 2 bedroom apartment we had was perfect for our recent visit to Melbourne to see "Beautiful" musical. It's an easy walk to either the Princess or Her Majesty Theatres. The living space is quite large with a seperate dining area. The bedrooms were a good size too. Nice clean linen and towels. No ensuite, just a single bathroom to share and unfortunately the toilet is in the bathroom which can be awkward at times. As other reviews have mentioned , the shower over the bath can be a big step up and down if any guest has hip issues. Luckily we were aware of this and took a small foldup step with us. Problem solved. I do have to commend staff for their caring and concern for this issue with my elderly mother. They did offer a couple of other room options or even another Oaks hotel nearby to make it easier for mum. It was our choice to stay due to location and so they also provided us with an anti slip mat for the bath. So we couldn't have asked for any better service.
Lovely Service Apartment, Great Location”
We had a very comfortable stay at Oaks on Lonsdale just recently. The apartment (2 bedroom unit) was very well spaced out, the view was amazing, and the kitchenette definitely came in very handy. Only thing is that you need to call them if you wish for your apartment to be serviced, if not, they might miss you out. Other than that, staff was helpful and friendly, the unit was generally clean despite the fact that we only had twice housekeeping service in a week, and the location was excellent within walking distance to lots of shopping and food! Unfortunately, their wi-fi service was down in the time that we were there, so we had to use international roaming data instead. The unit came with 3 TVs, a DVD player, some kitchen utensils, microwave, dish washer, washing machine and dryer in 1 among other smaller items. Very equipped except for the fact that there is only 1 air conditioner in the living room. We were there during the hotter days (above 30Degrees daily), so the rooms got a little stuffy at night and we had to blast the air conditioner from the living room daily to cool rooms down. All in all, a good week's stay at Oaks on Lonsdale.
Awesome Service Apartment”
This hotel/apartment always been my family's favorite place to stay if we go to Melbourne. There's 2 more Oaks in different location, but i guess this is our favorite because of the location and the room is more bigger than others. Couple years past, there's no coffee shop or room service, but now there have it.
Arrived at the Oaks and found it to be extremely clean and comfortable. Great position near China Town and Melbourne Museum. Bed was lovely and view great. Rooms really spacious. Showers definitely needed updating, but otherwise had abgreat time. Even went back a couple of days later upon return from a flight. Highly recommend.
Great apartments in the cbd”
Hotel is situated in the cbd with a short walk to Bourke Street. Large rooms with full kitchen, dining table and living area. Good housekeeping service as well as the reception desk. Close to supermarket and restaurant and fast food. Also nearby to public transport making all of Melbourne central.
All the basic necessities were provided. The apartment was spacious, clean and quiet. Staff at reception courteous. I have been here quite a few times already - very consistent. Save yourself the headache and choose Oaks on Lonsdale!
My friend and I recently travelled to Melbourne for a girls weekend. Had a beautiful modern 1 bed apartment with twin beds on the 28th floor. Gorgeous views from the balcony and the apartment was very modern and spacious. Staff were fantastic right through from check in to check out. We checked out the day before we flew home as we were heading to a friends for the night but there was no problem in keeping our bags there before our flight home the following night. Great location, a little far to walk to the hustle and bustle but we tended to walk to Parliament Station which is right next door and jump on the trams from there which took you straight down Bourke St Mall. The free city shuttle also stops at this tram stop. Was great value for money and will certainly look to stay here again!
Such an easy location to access. Right near Parliament station. Next door to a cafe and IGA supermarket was very handy. Staff were great. Aida on reception was super helpful. After staying in a few places in Melbourne on business trips lately, this is the one I will definitely come back to. Spacious, clean and well appointed accommodation in a great location.
As a business stay it was absolutely perfect ”
As a business stay it was perfect, long day in meetings etc meant that all i wanted to do was check in go to my room shower get something to eat and have a good nights rest for an early start the next day. This was all achieved by the professionalism and friendliness of the staff, the room was spacious warm and relaxing. I have stayed at some crappy hotels but I was totally blown away by the oaks, great value for money, parking for my hire car and internet access were major factors in choosing the oaks. Job well done to the Oaks.
very large comfortable room with good kitchen”
Hotel close to city shops but not quite close enough if you have bought lots of stuff or the winds in Melbourne, even in October freeze your body, then it feels quite a long way to walk to and from the hotel as it is located nearly at the end of the street. 2 or 3 blocks closer would have been ideal. No foxtel, no gym or pool, very limited free internet ( 30 minutes every 24 hours). Great size room for myself and adult daughter, could do with more than one 2 seater lounge. no tram in Lonsdale street. Looks close on map, but remember Melbourne is very windy and cold most of the time, and often raining, so it is probably worth paying a little extra to be closer to shops and restaurants.
Great room. Awesome view. Highly recommended”
i highly recommend the oaks on lonsdale. we didn't experience any 'city noises' from our room. it was very comfortable and spacious.
Great location, great value.”
I came to Melbourne for a business trip about a week. This hotel is located in CBD so it is convenient to commute to everywhere in downtown. China town is just behind the hotel so you can find food, do shopping easily. The washing machine is free to use on the 1 floor. Overall, i satisfied with this stay.
A great stay at a great location”
We had an enjoyable stay at the Oaks on Lonsdale. The king size beds are comfortable and the apartment gave a homely feel. Within walking distance to Chinatown at Little Bourke Street and department stores. The only drawback is the carpark. The one way enter/exit passageway is too narrow. It is not easy to manoeuvre a bigger car up or down the ramp. The staff are friendly and helpful. We shall choose Oaks on our next visit.
A Pleasant Surprise”
We found the hotel accommodation and parking to be better than expected to the degree that it would be our first choice when visiting Melbourne. Given the places we have visited internationally, this is not said lightly. Additionally, for our purposes, it was close to facilities, restaurants, entertainment, and shopping.
Great location with many smiles.”
when arriving at the hotel we were greeted by a friendly smile, the people were friendly and helpful. the room was extremely roomy, clean and self contained, the balcony showed beautiful views of melbourne. the location of the hotel was ideal if attending to theatres and transport was close by.
Excellent location,good value ”
We stayed for 6 nights. Very clean rooms, great members of staff. Excellent location with easy access to everywhere else. Will surely stay here again whenever I am in Melbourne. And lastly, a big thanks to Michael at front desk, he was very helpful.
Convenient location and comfy”
i have always stay at oaks on lonsdale every time i went to melbourne and will always be my first choice next time.
Feel like my second home.”
Beautiful, is how I feel. I managed to take a few good shots of the fireworks from the balcony during our stay. Homely is how my girl feel during her transition in Melbourne. We definitely coming back for the same unit which we have stayed. Enjoy! And the staff service are excellent.
