Arrived tired but reception was most efficient and processed us quickly and even upgraded us as returning visitors. As previously our apartment was excellent in all respects (husband needs separate shower, one not over the bath). Discount breakfast appreciated and parking very easy. A street full of restaurants to choose from all within 5-10 mins walk. Will stay there again

Comfortable Studio room

Stayed 4 nights recently at Oaks M on Palmer St in September 2013 (have previously stayed at Oaks Gateway at the busier end of Palmer St). It is tucked away behind the Metropole Hotel so a little hard to find if you didn't know it wasn't on Palmer Street itself. Check in late evening was smooth and staff friendly, on arrival in our room we found the aircon on and leaking water onto the carpart which was quite wet. Staff on duty offered straight away to move us but we opted to open the balcony door and we weren't going to use the aircon anyway. He cleaned the aircon unit and put some extra towels on the wet patch for housekeeping to deal with the next day. Room was a really good size for a studio with a very comfortable couch, private balcony and good size bathroom and shower. Basic cooking with hotplates, full size fridge pots, crockery etc supplied. Also washer and dryer for clothes. We faced the back of the building so heard quite a lot of goods train movements with the balcony door open but this didn't really bother us and didn't disturb overnight. I would suggest if you don't want noise ask for a room facing the front of the hotel though. Oaks M has a charge back with the Metropole Hotel at the front but we opted to walk the block down to the restaurant strip of Palmer St for breakfast and any other meals. Having stayed at that end previously we where happy return to our favourite breakfast spot Bistro One. When we came back from dinner on night 1 and wanted to make coffee we found a previous occupant had melted the jug cord and just coiled up again hidden. Again staff were quick, friendly and accommodating in replacing the jug with a new one. Overall a good stay at a reasonable price apartment style hotel that was only a block from the main food area of Palmer Street and within walking distance of the CDB. Certainly nice to be close to the river too. It was convenient for us as we were visiting army based family and we didn't need to worry about taxis or public transport. Would certainly stay with either Oaks M or Oaks Gateway on Palmer Street on our next visit.
