There were not enough crockery and cutlery items. The smoke alarm had no battery in it, however, this was rectified. There was no radio and no hand towels. The bed consisted of two singles joined together in the middle with a ridge between the two which made it very uncomfortable to lay on. We had no pillows in our room... More

Had a change of original plans and needed somewhere to stay, fast! Got online and found Southern Cross, due to it being the week between Christmas and New Years, we didn't have much choice, nor did I have time to do research on the place, otherwise I wouldn't have chosen here. Had adjoining apartments, 1 had a queen bed, living... More

Good location close to Kangaroo Point clifftops, Storey Bridge, city and Fortitude Valley. Reception is poor. Would not do weekly rate. No internet, basic amenities. Has security cards that I would not trust. Would not leave anything of value in these rooms. Lot of undesirables in the area, across the road from crappy Pineapple Hotel, street walkers on the main... More

Stayed here for one night due to an event up in Brisbane, the motel is quite decent for its price. They hadn't received my booking from Expedia at time of check in but was quickly sorted out. Don't think the hotel deserves the negative reviews it has received however here are a few pro's and con's. Pro's: Cheap, close to... More

Police there from the night before's apparently the working girls had a bad experience with a client there. Our booking was mixed up and we did not get the family unit we had booked 3 months prior and we also phoned three days before our arrival to ensure all was in order but they when we arrived still all mixed...

By far the worst place l have ever stayed. The room was dirty including the bathroom which still had hair in the bottom of the shower. No face washers, no tissues, no hair dryer, no iron, no blankets on the beds, no extra pillows. The receptionist had no idea about how the public transport worked.

With Riverfire on, the choices of affordable accommodation in Brisbane were limited so I looked outside my usual CBD options. Southern Cross came up and as it was close to the function I was attending and a reasonable price I took it, expecting something very ordinary.. I was pleasantly surprised. Although quite old, the room was freshly painted, very spacious... More

I recently booked a room for the night of riverfire as it was close to the action and cheaper than anywhere else on this date. After I had booked I read all of the negative feedback on this complex and was concerned that it was going to be a horrible stay. When we arrived the receptionist was lovely, great customer... More

This is good basic accommodation in Brisbane at a very reasonable rate. The room was clean with all the facilities you could want, the bed was comfortable. It is on a busy road so not all that quiet but I still slept well. I would return if I found myself needing accommodation on that side of town
