If you’re searching for self-contained accommodation in a prime location on a mid range budget, then there is no going past the Oaks Goldsbourgh apartments. A stone through away from the bright and bustling Darling Harbour, we were not left short for things to do during our stay.
With the price tag of $170 AUD, we were not expecting to arrive at our very own self-contained, one bedroom apartment (keep in mind, this is Sydney city we are talking about). We pushed open our hotel door to discover beautiful wooden walls, high ceilings and relatively modern decor.
The apartment included free Wifi, Foxtel, a fully equipped kitchen and laundry, queen sized bed (that was heavenly to sleep in), dining and lounge area, a modern bathroom and a small enclosed sitting area at the entrance. Within the apartment complex, visitors have access to the pool, spa and sauna area from 6am-12pm, as well the gym.
I’m going to be straight up; there were a few off-pointing aspects to our room, such as the ‘kennel’ like metal around the entry to our hotel room and minor maintenance issues, but this was nothing worth kicking up a fuss about- I would just recommend requesting a room higher up within the compound.
Upon arrival, the hotel staff were very prompt to assist us with our check in process, creating a very welcoming environment from the get-go.
Note: if you’re a seasonal travellers or strap for cash, we do want to highlight the additional ‘safety deposit’ of $150.00 that takes three working days to land back into your account. We were unaware of this until arrival, which is standard but not at all ideal for travellers who are on a strict budget. We recommend checking these things in advance, as we know $150.00 can make a world of difference while on the road.
Overall, we had a pleasant stay and are looking forward to checking out other locations around Australia, to see how they compare.
