With one of the biggest weekends of the year coming up, I needed a place in the CBD that had all the comforts of home and that also wouldn’t break the bank.

That place was the four-star Oaks Sydney Goldsbrough Suites.

Located just a stone’s throw from bustling Darling Harbour in Pyrmont, Oaks Sydney Goldsbrough Suites is one of Sydney’s hidden gems and unlike anywhere else I’ve stayed in our great city.

The building itself dates back to the 1800’s when it was used as a working wool store and now sits proudly as apartment style accommodation, still with historic charm of a heritage listed building.

I stayed at Oaks Sydney Goldsbrough Suites during the busy Vivid period, which was great as I had the most amazing view of the city skyline from my one-bedroom apartment.

Not only could I see the Darling Harbour precinct all lit up like a rainbow below, but I had a spectacular view of the iconic Sydney Tower and gorgeous Crown Sydney building – I could’ve stared at it for ages if I didn’t have a show at the Opera House to attend that night.

Can’t beat that view!

Oaks Sydney Goldsbrough Suites certainly isn’t your average hotel accommodation. While the property does contain more than 70 studio rooms with kitchenette facilities, it’s also home to hundreds of self-contained one and two-bedroom apartments.

My apartment, located on Level 9, was so clean, comfortable and jam-packed with features that it didn’t bother me that it was lacking some modern elements.

In my apartment alone, I had a lounge and dining area, full kitchen set-up including cooktop, oven, fridge, dishwasher, microwave, and tea and coffee making facilities.

The combined bathroom and laundry was also substantial and included a hairdryer and exclusive toiletries, along with a washing machine, clothes dryer, iron and ironing board.

My bedroom had a comfortable queen bed, the softest pillows to rest my head on, as well as a mirrored inbuilt wardrobe to hang my array of outfits for the weekend.

The bed was super comfortable.

When I returned from my night out, I wasn’t quite ready for bed, so I laid back on the two-seater couch and surfed the Foxtel box, which had a whole suite of channels to choose from. When I finally gave up on finding something to watch, I pulled out my Apple iPad and logged on to the hotel’s free WiFi service and streamed some Netflix.

The property is perfect no matter what type of traveller you are.

It has conference / meeting facilities, gymnasium, heated indoor lap pool, spa, male and female saunas, and a great little coffee shop downstairs that sells amazing bacon and egg rolls.

If you’re after a tour of Sydney or advice on something to do in the area, their concierge desk is available 24/7 and their multilingual staff are always on hand to assist with any matters that may arise during your stay.

Overall, Oaks Sydney Goldsbrough Suites is the ultimate place for a Darling Harbour and CBD getaway. It’s situated next door to a multi-deck carpark and, to get you around the city, Light Rail services are virtually right on the hotel’s doorstep.
