Talk about convenience at your doorstep

This is the ultimate in location, price, service, cleanliness, everything Stayed for 3 nights 16-19th May 2014, we were in room 1007 which looked straight out onto the harbour, we got a fireworks show (unexpected) and a marathon pass the hotel, It's a 20 minute walk to the heart of Sydney, the light rail's right there at the bottom and everything's just a short walk across the bridge, the room was brilliant, so roomy and quiet, I'd heard it could be noisy because of the construction but we heard nothing of an evening, the bedrooms are at the back so you don't get traffic noise, We will definitely stay here again and next time we'll bring the kids thank you for making our first holiday in 22 years fantastic, we thoroughly enjoyed it

We have a nice time there!

The overall stay was really pleasant! Staff are really friendly, the room was clean and darling harbour was within 10 mins walk away! The only quibble is the balcony in my room did not have any view, all we can see is the wall!

Great location, not much else.

Our stay at Oaks Goldborough was an ultimately disappointing experience. While the staff and location were fantastic, our room was in immediate need of a refurbish. Furthermore, during the booking process, we were not made aware of the construction work that was occurring on three sides of the building, resulting very early morning starts for us.

Perfect location, great hotel

Stayed here for 3 nights over Easter 2014. We have stayed in numerous hotels around the Darling Harbour / Haymarket area and the Oaks Goldsborough is as good as most and in a better location than most. The building is fascinating, a refurbished wool store with many rooms. We stayed in a studio room (711) overlooking the internal part of the building, so no view but a balcony for some fresh air and the room was clean and well maintained. Not huge, but perfectly adequate for a couple for several nights. The location is brilliant, a minute or two walk through the hotel and neighbouring car park sees you come out at Convention light rail stop opposite Darling Harbour, brilliant ! Our room was quiet, though I appreciate it may be noisy in the corridors at times, as many reviews suggest, but we didn't appreciably notice this during our stay and I certainly wouldn't let it put you off booking. The pool was nice and not crowded, however the spa is very small (6 ppl max at a push# and it was a little dirty during our stay, so we opted not to use it. Gym looks great, everything you need. There are a couple of cafes on the premises #2nd floor along the walkway to Darling harbour) which were great. Check in staff and concierge very friendly, professional and helpful. All in all, a great place to stay, comfortable, clean and tidy with perfect walking access to Darling Harbour.

The best location you could get. Overlooking Darling. Harbour.

Very pleasant. Staff were so accommodating. We would definitely stay there again and have already recommended the oaks goldsbrough to several friends. Fabulous location. We easily walked to the Star casino and home in a safe location after seeing a show at the Lyric Theatre.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Two options to walk to Darling Harbour ... don't just go to the Car Park and through Harbourside shopping precinct ... you can go light from level 1 and walk up a batch of stairs, the. turn right and walk to a lift, that goes down to Darling Harbour. You're there in a couple of minutes, right there in the centre of the children's playground, Chinese Tea Garden, and other eateries.
