... houses everywhere... And no sunflower field!! I had to ask a lot of people ( Laura and yana was to embarrassed) if they new where the sunflower field where... And no one knew. Some people even thought it was a bar or something. R So we were pretty sad and about to go back to the city when yana scrolled down on the website and found out that the person had written that it was Alfred st not Albert st!!! So we were on the ...
... and her mum Maree, and they greeted us with a sight to please the eyes of anyone who's just driven for an entire day - a box of cold beers and a barbie. The temperature in Melbourne the next day was bordering on the ridicuous, and we passed on the opportunity to go to the tennis as the players struggled in conditions reaching 44 degrees. Instead, we headed to the beach at St Kilda, where those not at work were cooling down in the sea. In fact when we got down there we ...
... We consoled ourselves with a swim in the pool, a cool ploughmans dinner and some more wine. The following day saw Nick leave early and catch the tram to the MCG to witness another excruciatingly frustrating performance by the English side, the Australians picking off the runs without hassle, Chris Rogers scoring a century in the process. In the meantime, we set about getting ready to meet Jenna's cousins Lisa and Jacqueline, along with their Mum, Maree and Andrew, ...

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.
