Oaks On Castlereagh, Sydney Central4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The Oaks has clean rooms, reasonably friendly staff, a central location but is uninspiring and could be better value. There are plenty of eateries nearby, mostly Asian food, the location is quite central. Basic accommodation which could be better priced.
Had an enjoyable time. The only thing I would suggest is that the pool be a little warmer but otherwise a great place to stay. A convenience store next door to the building which is perfect. Not too far from shopping, restaurants, cafea and touristic places.
We stayed at the Oaks on Castlereagh as we were going to the Capitol Theatre, just around the corner. But the location was better than that as it was close to Darling Harbour, Chinatown, great restaurants, Central Station. The room was very comfortable and easy to find. It was a little noisy if you are not used to city living.
Booked this at last minute. Facilities were excellent, room was very spacious, fully self contained kitchen, washer & dryer, bed was comfy, had a balcony. One of the best rooms I’ve ever stayed in Sydney!
Disgusting rooms, mould and sewer smell. You go to complain they don't care, give your room away to guests and no compensation. Staff were unhappy and the whole building needs maintance .carpark is hard to get into, remote control dont work.
This hotel is perfect for a family. It is clean and spacious. To those guest wanted to stay this hotel before check in ...the hotel will ask $75.00 deposit. If you have a car, they have a carpark too. Inside the room they have iron,iron board, water jug to make your coffee or tea, toaster,mini fridge, cooking stove, sink, kitchen ware like pots,cups,spoon.extra blankets and pillow, TV and a good lounge.
Arrived on Friday, left today sunday but they sent me a survey before I'd even checked out which is just silly. I'm still a guest and using the services.... Write to them on Friday about issues in hotel. No response. Was told someone would address issues but nothing was ever done. Very poor stay. There was constant drilling, WiFi doesn’t work, spa doesn’t work... paid $550 for all this feel ripped off. Internet constantly requires re logging in however even with clicking Facebook log in correctly it then throws you out for too many attempts yet it should just work. Very annoying. Just doesn’t work easily. Beds are annoying. No castor locks? They roll round whole room. Annoying and a silly set up. Check in was way too long. Not organised. Staff member failed to understand basic English communication and failed to know the importance of both tap and pay restrictions (ie Over $100 is pin) and to reconfirm room with me as she initially got that wrong so glad I double checked. wONKY POOR QUALITY furniture- staff are apathetic. No spa bubbles what’s the point? Didn’t use again as waste of going down there. Drilling was annoying as trying to relax. No plug for sink to wash dishes. Dirty bathroom. Cleaners did not clean properly. Food from previous people left in property behind couch. This was an incredibly poor stay for the price and having booked back in May. Disappointed. See pics/vids
I stayed in a studio apartment for one night for business. The place was clean and tidy. Decor within the room had a newer feel than the reception area, corridors, connecting doors, carpets and lift interior. Facilities: Queen bed Desk with light TV unit with TV Armchair Built-in wardrobe with safe, iron, ironing board. A limited selection of hangers. Bathroom with shower, lots of towels, selection of shampoo etc, hairdryer Mini kitchenette with sink, mini induction hob, pots and pans, cutlery and crockery, fridge with small frozen section, microwave. Kettle, selection of tea, coffee, sweeteners. Very comfortable bed with various pillows and cushions. I did have to rearrange plugs to get power for my laptop at the desk, but no big deal - the main GPO's were not accessible behind the tv unit but there were a couple of extension leads I was able to pull out from between the tv unit and the desk and found a spare outlet. The location is good especially if you're working in the south CBD and/or need access to Central Station and Darling Harbour/Quarter/Square. There's a convenience store next door on the corner of Castlereagh and Campbell Street. You could consider this place for a longer stay, as a base for exploring Sydney, at a reasonable price (for Sydney!). You might hear more trains from the Castlereagh St side, as there are train tracks under the car park opposite the hotel on Castlereagh. My room was facing Central Station to the south, and the noise level was not intrusive. The reception staff were very approachable. It was nice to see security guards in the lobby late at night. Prox card access was required for access to the lift.
This is a great location with small but great kitchenette. The room was clean, and cleaned once a week which I had no issue, but I kept smelling serious cigarette smell in the room. I don’t know where it came from but it kept coming into the room. I stayed here more than a week so this was irritating me every single time when I walked in after full day outside. Except that it was good stay but that smell just ruined everything for me.
Stayed in a studio room the lounge area is 1 x tub chair, dinning area did not exist, kitchenette 1 pot 1 pan 1 egg flip, nothing to use in the microwave, study/office area table and no power. Not worth the money a standard hotel room has the same.
