3.5 star review but feeling generous so rounded up, I stay fairly regularly for business (12+ stays total) and the rooms and basic breakfast do the job. I would say that I do agree with some of the one star reviews. Some of the staff can be quite rude and stand-offish. I know their excuse will be "its just their... More

The Essence Serviced Apartments are perfect for family of patients at the Prince Charles and The Holy Spirit Northside Hospitals. The rooms are large with comfortable beds and the staff are all great and I would stay there again.

The rooms are clean and a good size. I have stayed here 3 times now and the standard has been consistent. Our continental breakfast was included on the last 2 occasions which was handy. We had business not far from the apartments so the location for us was great. Handy to Chermside westfield and Prince Charles Hospital as well. I... More

After spending the previous night at another small hotel nearby we found this gem (for less $$). Spacious 1 bedroom apartment with a fully equipped kitchen and plenty of car space. The apartment looks as good as the photos on the website. There is free wifi and a great common area where a free (very basic) continental breakfast is served... More

I visit Brisbane a fair amount for work and this is the 4th place I have tried as the others weren't in worth mentioning. Finally I have found a place I can consistently stay at. There is a small boxing gym opposite which is great if you are into strength training but not so much for a cardio workout. The... More

We stayed overnight here before an overseas trip and had a double bedroom for one night. It is within 15 minutes drive to the airport, good parking, quite new and well kept. There was continental breakfast included but very basic. There were two adults and two teenage children but only one bathroom. We had a balcony and plenty of room... More

We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment - even though it was quite small, I thought it was good value for money because it has free parking, free wi-fi and a free continental breakfast. I found the bed really comfy and the pillows were great! (I'm fussy with pillows!). The reception staff were friendly, especially Kerrie - what a lovely... More
