Oaks 212 Margaret ~ the little lioness

Oaks 212 Margaret

For Rish’s conference in Brisbane, we stayed at Oaks 212 Margaret. We were in a one bedroom apartment on the 12th floor.


The bedroom had a sliding door to close off from the living area/tv, and to shut out some noise, which worked well for me on the mornings Rish got up early to work while I lay in bed being lazy :p The bed itself I couldn’t complain about, a little more comfy than my bed at home, but I still managed to get a sore neck and plenty of bouts of pins and needles.

TV area

The tv was nice, the couch comfy enough. I ran into the coffee table firs day and got a nice bruise :p Note the aircon – the unit was there near the door, but I suppose if you needed cooling in the bedroom you’d need to leave the sliding door open.

Noise wasn’t too bad, though there was a bit of construction going on, and the cuitains didn’t quite block out the light :p



The bathroom contained a shower/bath – hot water took awhile to kick in but was good once there. SHower head a little too low for hair washing – you know what I mean so you have to tilt or suck a little. There was a washer and dryer while we didn’t use… No soap place on the basin, which left me leaving my hand soap on the bench.

Servicing (towel change, bed making) was daily … though I think I embarrassed the guy who was on one day when I answered in my towel ;) Do not disturb sign was honored when in place :)


Kitchen was good sized for a small place. Real hotplates, plenty of utensils.

I didn’t use the pool.. I did go down to the gym, but the elliptical was awkward and kept going off, and the bike slipped out of position, so I opted for what I should have done in the first place – a run by the river!


The balcony was perfect for dinner…

or nerding online!!

      No room service, but there was one of those menus to order from nearby places for delivery. May have needed to answer the door.. and not just in a towel to the housekeeping.

What do you think?
