Oaks M on Palmer

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Overnight stay. Found the room to be a good size, comfortable bed and a sofa. Kitchen facilities more than adequate. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Easy parking underneath. Will stay there again.

Stayed here for 6 nights , arrived to a broken toilet and checked out with a broken toilet , we gave up complaining !! Fresh towels were supplied every day but the shower was not cleaned at all or was the room vacuumed , would not recommend this hotel at all for customer service

The rooms are very reasonable. We had a little kitchenette which was great. The bed was very comfortable and there was a large television as well. The room was clean and had a dryer, washing machine and hair dryer. Nice view and quiet location. No faults.

We had two nights in a cityview apartment. Check in is easy. Plenty of parking, and nice rooms. We got indian next door on our first night and ate it on our veranda. Because it is a the end of the street it is quiet.

The rooms were fine, but, lacked a small table and chairs for dinning.I had a city studio and the view was excellent, over looking the yacht club and river and Magnetic Island in the distance. Friendly, helfpul staff, but, the location is a little out of the way so a lot of walking is required or a car may be preferred. If you want to visit Magnetic Island the vehicle/passenger ferry is only a few minutes walk so that's an advantage. There is a pub attached to the block and all meals and drinks can be consumed there if you don't want to go far.

I rang in Brisbane to stay in Brisbane and when we arrived at our preferred hotel it was discovered that I was booked into a room in Townsville.Now don't ignore this I have always stayed at Oaks but this was my last stay for me my family and many of my friends.It was an absolute mess.For goodness sake employ people who can speak English and understand the geography of

Paid $164 for a room without a view! Extremely disappointed! Then that room didn't have a microwave it had a spot for one. Then it was on, i looked for things to see if it was value for money and you guest it not even worth $80. The bedside tables and coffee table are flaking chip board. Then the air conditioner had fluff around it and the filters are worse than a cloth dryer lint catcher. Then to top it off no pen or paper to make notes. Also i am over motel / Hotels trying to charge a surcharge for using any credit cards it is part of running a business. Another thing that gets me worked up is them asking the paying customer to help save on water by reusing your towel. WTF give us a discount to save your water that we are paying for! Really give us value for money!

Nice place to stay, comfortable rooms with local restaurants and pubs and great views. Bit of a walk to get to the main strip but a short taxi or über ride will get you there pretty quick. One of the better hotels to stay at in Palmer Street.

Stayed in a studio apartment with all conveniences of a kitchen, perfect for 1 or a couple to stay for a long weekend in this apartment, bed is comfortable and hotel is placed away from noise yet walking distance in a busy street of cafes and restaurants

Probably one of the better hotels on Palmer St. A bit of a walk to the main stretch where all the restauarants are, but worth it. Nice and quiet plus really well priced. Very modern and rooms are great quality. Attached to the pub which they own which is good cause you can charge your meals back to your room.
