    Modern design and excellent presentation of the room. Cleanliness was excellent as was the room service. Great location within the city.

    Design and visual presentation of the room. Quiet, away from main roads.

    The only fault I found was that all the carparks were extremely tight to get into. Regardless of what type of car you have, it was an extremely tight squeeze.

  • Single

    Location to the city and available evening services

    You are difficult to find as there is insufficient branding/directional signage

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Liked the lay-out and finishes of the studio, handy car parking, nearby resturants.

    Don''t like the atrium-type entrances to each pair of rooms, as the security doors/deadlocks are very noisy.

  • Older travelers

    Only stayed one night, so my review should not be given the weight as those that are based on longer stays. Hotel is comfortable, liked the locality but trying to find it is a different matter. It is what we expected of a fairly luxurious hotel while on a trip to Port Douglas. Close to restaurants, nice views over harbour and city and the furnishings are comfotable. Very good, comfortable bed. Nice kitchenette etc.

    Finding the place. Oaks, to me, does not start with an "M". Yet the building has a prominent "M" on its facade and what makes it more confusing is the fact that a building ( also a hotel, I think) directly in front of it is called "Metropole", clearly starting with an "M". There is no signage indicating that you are at Oaks and it doesn't front the road. But, that's nothing. What does baffles me completely is the fact that in the apartment we had, the bathroom is separated from the living area by a walll with, normal gyprock to 900mm. Then. . . . .glass! What on earth would possess you to close off a bathroom with a window facing the living space?? Sure, it has a draw down shade, but imagine the springloaded shutter suddenly deciding to roll itself up? It would, of course, never do it when you're just brushing your teeth. . . . . For that reason alone, I personally wouldn't go back, or at least ask some probing questions about the layout. I guess there are some architects and designers out there in serious need of counselling

    Everything was in it's place. The room was clean and well serviced daily. It was good to have a laundry and kitchen in the room. The staff at the front desk were helpful and friendly. The little gym sufficed.Only issue was the location at the end of Palmer St which meant a bit of a walk anywhere and the shunting trains at night though this didn't go on all night and easily gotten used too.

    On the whole a goos experience.

    Comfortable bed and modern stylish layout of the room. Easy parking, online booking and check in and check out. Central to our appointment. Close to restaurants and eating.

    Was a bit hard to find motel more signage on the street front would be more appropriate. Wish we had more time to stay there

  • Older travelers

    The views from our room was amazing. It was a very relaxing and comfortable stay. It was very handy having a washing machine, tumble dryer, fridge/freezer and dishwasher in our room. We will definately book this hotel again.

    The only little problem we had was when we had our balcony doors open and the people below us were smoking on their balcony, it was coming in to our room.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    I've stayed here twice in a month and each visit was equally good.

    It's easier to park a car in the upper car park. The pillars on the under cover car park can make it a bit tight if you have a larger vehicle.

    The bed was supposed to be a king but was 2 singles joined together, the bin was bent and wouldnt open with the foot pedal so the partner had to straighten it. We stayed for 4 days and 4 nights and the sheets werent changed once. The toilet lid wouldnt stay up so my partner had to hold it up every time he went for a whiz. Very loud neighbours at the backpackers (hippie) hostel.

    The furnishings were clean and new compared to the Oaks Charlotte in Brisbane. The layout was good too. Unfortunately, having stayed at the Oaks chain of hotels in different cities in Australia, the standard look is beginning to be boring. Hope the Oaks at different locations could provide greater variety to the furnishings and decor on a variation of the theme peculiar to the city. Other than that, it is good value for dollar. Will definitely look up the Oaks again.

    There is only one person at the reception. As such , service is not prompt.

    The staff were friendly and helpful. The studio was comfortable, tasteful and clean. It was well equipped and just generally everything we wanted.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Room was very confortable and value for money. Handy to food and hotel. Best accomadation we have stayed in at Townsville.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Rooms were extremely well appointed. Everything was provided for easy options for both dining and living.

    Lack of clear signage and method of entry.
