Oaks Goldsbrough Apartment

Posted Sep 19, 2014
Rooms are decent condition - clean! Friendly staff. Hallways of building felt like an old prison & unusual smell. Close proximity to attractions and value for money.

2 minute walk to Darling Harbour

Posted Sep 19, 2014
Pros: Rooms were clean but the apartments themselves a bit dated.
Cons: Tell people about parking arrangements.
Location: 2 minutes to Darling Harbour and Maritime Museum!
Love the location of the Golsborough Apartments its a 2 minute walk to Darling Harbour. Apartments themselves are a bit dated but they were clean and the beds really comfortable. Parking is in adjacent public secure car parks. If you want to be central and self cater this is the spot.

Convenient Hotel Close to Darling Harbour

Posted Sep 19, 2014
Pros: I loved the timber and heritage feel of the hotel, but the rooms were still quite modern.
Cons: The lounge suite was definitely very uncomfortable. Upgrade to a more relaxing, comfortable and supportive lounge suite please.
Location: Central to many things: close to Darling Harbour, Sydney Tower, and transport to many locations by ferry. Handy to shops, restaurants, etc.
We loved our time in Sydney. The motel was adequate considering we spent very little time there, but not fantastic. Pleasing appearance, excellent service, mostly comfortable, but the lounge room leaves a lot to be desired in terms of comfort. After an exhausting day out you just want to relax in a nice comfy lounge. I was also surprised by the parking fees - this was probably in the fine print and wasn't aware of it when booking. This added to the cost of the room.

Hotel is getting a bit tired but close to darling harbour and we'll set up for families. The 2 br apt we stayed in has washing machine and dryer and kitchen. It is a handy base for exploring sydney

Absolutely brilliant!

Posted Sep 12, 2014
Beautiful 2bdr apartment,very modern,2bathrooms,lots of beds &plenty of cupboard space with ducted a/c. we were very surprised that it was 2storey! Amazing view of centrepoint tower. Very covenient location-short stroll to Darling Harbour, great carparking. Very friendly staff, free daily newspaper. Upstairs had a tv, however downstairs didn't. If you require a taxi,please do not bother ringing to book or even wait outside for one. (Not the fault of the hotel) we, as well as other hotel patrons on 2different occassions rang&waited for 1/2 hr or so..no taxi, no courtesy phone call.Every taxi that we saw would speed past us.

Close to all modes of transport

Posted Sep 8, 2014
Pros: The history of the building and the way it has been restored from its original purpose.
Cons: because the building is so open it is a bit noisy. Better sound proofing could be a benifit.
Location: Everything that we were interested was handy, we used the light lail, ferries and walked safely to any of our destinations
We both enjoyed our stay, we were upgraded to an apartment which we really appreciated.

Well located to Darling Harbour

Posted Aug 30, 2014
Pros: Well located
Cons: Completion of lift up grade program
Location: Maritime museum
The room we were initially allocated was at the back of the lift well and was extremely noisy. When I raised it with the staff they immediately provided us with a very quite room on another floor. Great service

Interesting and different hotel

Posted Aug 25, 2014
Pros: The Oaks Goldsbrough is close to most places and we enjoyed the unique atmosphere of the building.
Location: Close to light rail for station, Paddy's market; walk to Star casino, dining & Lyric theatre, Darling Harbour (fireworks Sat nights) and city centre.
We very much enjoyed the unusual interior with the top to bottom view, the warehouse feel and the high stud ceilings.
