Oaks Plaza Pier Apartment Hotel
Ranked #4 of 7 Hotels in Glenelg
Reviewed 11 February 2012

We have just returned to the U.K. after staying at this fabulous apartment hotel. We were early for our check in but storage of baggage was no problem whilst we waited for our apartment to be made ready. The staff were very helpful from the reception staff to the cleaners, nothing was too much trouble. The food in the hotel was excellent and the shared platters our favourite.
Wow!! The apartment was fabulous and well worth the extra expense of paying for the sea view. We had a second floor apartment with two very large bedrooms one with en-suite and a very large second bathroom, a fully fitted kitchen and a spacious lounge, but we spent most of our time on the balcony which overlooked the most beautiful beach with amazing sunsets, just the place to finish or start our day. Everything was clean, well presented and perfect for our requirements. The pool with its sauna and calm tranquility was perfect too. We highly recommend this hotel.

Check in was a bit chaotic, a queue of people and only one receptionist on duty. We had a beautiful apartment, bedroom, sitting room, kitchen and balcony. We chose a room with 'park view' rather than ocean view because it was cheaper, this had a pleasant outlook on an open green space.
The bed was extremely comfortable and big.
Would definitely recommend this hotel.

We booked last minute accommodation here on Australia Day weekend, and paid $240 a night for a 1 bedroom, ocean view apartment. Its the first time i have ever stayed anywhere where everything was perfect for myself and my husband. The room was spotless and roomy, the king bed was very comfy. The ocean view was great to have, we stayed in room 118 which was on the first floor which i loved, it felt like we were right on top of the sand. The breakfast restaurant was nice and the lady at the Blu Cafe was very friendly. I cant wait to come back for another stay. Thankyou Oaks Plaza Glenelg...... A. Gebert

I stayed here for work purposes in a one bedroom apartment, room 401. The view was over the park at the rear of the hotel which was nice. Small balcony with table and 2 chairs which was a nice place to sit having my morning coffee.
It is an apartment hotel and a very nice one compared to others I have stayed at around Australia. Very clean and spacious, complete with everything you could possibly need if you’re on holiday or business. (stove top, oven, microwave, dishwasher, pots n pans, crockery, cutlery, clothes washer and dryer, iron and ironing board, in room safe, tv & dvd stereo). Room service is available and from breakfast until 9.30pm. The complex also has an array of eating places and 2 bars. Whilst I didn't eat at the hotel the menus looked ok.
Room layout:- entrance with large bathroom off to the side. Main living area is combined kitchen, dining lounge with bedroom and rear. Balcony is accessed from both living area and bedroom.
I had read a few complaints that no one takes your luggage up to your room, well please remember that this is an apartment hotel so it's very much do it yourself.
Whilst I was only here on business, I would be happy enough to stay here for a week on holidays as its location and facilities are pretty good.
My only three complaints and they are very minor are to do with 1) the check-in staff. A smile would be nice. 2) The tv in the room offers limited foxtel and no digital tv channels that I could find. 3)The lack of a compendium with instructions on how to use the tv and stereo would be handy as well as outlining the hotels facilities.
These are minor issues and would not stop me from staying here again.

We came here from a recommendation from a friend and from the beginning we had issues. First they tell you that they have all day parking downstairs but as the space is limited, once you go out for dinner and come back to park and there are no parking spots, it's your loss even though you have paid for the $17 all day parking. Then the air conditioner in our room broke and we were told to wait 15 mins and restart the machine and it should work again, but of course it doesn't on a hot night. Luckily they moved us to another room on a higher floor and much bigger YAY but it was late and I just wanted to sleep. Luckily before we want to bed, we checked the cat park downstairs and manged to find one spot. Still, too many dramas for one day and the lady at the counter sounded like she didn't want to deal with any issue. Definitely won't be staying here again.
