Oaks On Market
Travel Blogs from Melbourne
Yesterday evening we were told to meet in the lobby at 7:30 a.m. if we wanted to go with our tour guide, Pam, to the Queen Victoria Market. Dee and Ady had every intention of going with Nancy, but couldn't get out of bed at 6:00 a.m. Nancy, however, did and really enjoyed her shopping experience. The market was very large with stall after stall …
Good day from Melbourne, Australia. The Aussies pronounce the city as Melbunn. Today was an exceptionally long day packed with many stops and interesting places to visit.
Our first stop at 10:30 a.m. mind you was a visit to a winery at the Box Station Vineyard. We (meaning Adrienne and Nancy) tasted approximately seven different …

If someone were to ask me the best way to get to Australia from India, I would suggest as if an unhelpful chap on the side of a highway that the starting point was unadvisable.
I tried really hard to get flights that were as connecting as possible, though still subsequently managed to spend the next 40 hours ‘travelling’ much …
Hay everyone. Hope you are all well. I'm hearing some of you are less well than others, and I'm trying to wish all those that need it all the best whenever I can and lend my support. Tough when you are 10,000 miles away and 11 hours ahead, so apologies if I'm not available in your daylight hours. Phone quality on mobile to mobile across that …

Historical Traveler Reviews Oaks On Market Melbourne
We recently went to Melbourne for 4 days and booked Oaks on Market over the internet. We only had 3 weeks notice and needed three different rooms, so it was quite difficult to find anywhere.
The location is great, away from the busiest shopping areas and crowds (which we found a good thing), but not too far to walk everywhere in the city. There are 2 or 3 convenience stores nearby to buy essentials, and the tram is a block away.
We stayed in a studio room on the 15th floor for three nights and it was great. We arrived at 11am and our room wasn't ready yet so we left our luggage and came back at 2pm. The staff were nice and apologetic that we had to wait. Loved the decor in the foyer and the room. The room was huge for a studio and had everything we needed. Although we requested twin bedding, when we got in, it was a king bed so called reception and housekeeping was sent up to separate to two beds. The staff were so helpful with anything we asked them.
We were staying in the city for a 3 day shopping trip and wanted to be close to the city shopping precinct. In terms of location the hotel was perfect - centered between the mall, Southbank and the DFO on Spencer St (and Krispy Kreme donut cafe)! Also very close to the restaurants at Southbank and the free City Circle Tram.
Not even the views or location could save this place. If you are looking for a place that offers a high standard of customer service and is clean-this is definitely not the place!
We were staying in the city for the Robbie Williams concert and wanted to be close to the Docklands. In terms of location the hotel was perfect - only a 10 minute leisurely walk!
Sensational! So much more than I expected
I stayed 3 nights at Oaks on Market for a Business trip to Melbourne
I booked the Hotel Direct, the gentleman that made the booking for me was great, really helpfull with information about where exactly the hotel was in relation to Areas of the CBD I needed to visit.
Because the rate was quite low, I didnt expect too much as far as services or excellent rooms.
Upon arrival - I was shocked!
Great staff at check in, and when I went up to my room - I had a huge suite with great views of the Southbank area and the casino.
Everything is brand new - fresh, clean and the pool and Gym were great. (the gym has free weights)
The restaurant has a great breakfast - fast friendly service
Overall a hassle free, plesant stay - Great value for money
I stayed at Oaks on Market for a few days during a business trip to Melbourne.
Great Service, View & Room!!!
Stayed for 4 nights, brand new hotel the service and the rooms were fantastic! Beautiful view from top of the hotel out over South Bank (Casino) and to the bay (only limited number so make sure you ask!!). Front desk staff were friendly and helpful.
Make sure you check out the pool facilities on the basement.. very nice!!!
Ok but not what I expected for a new hotel. Got good views of Southbank, a bit blocked by other buildings but not too bad. Housekeeping can be improved, bedroom floors very dusty especially the architraves - it didn't look like it's ever been cleaned at all, bedside table and lamps were also dusty.
