I stayed their for nearly 2 months, what a great place! It's a 2 minutes walk from the story bridge hotel, yet in a very quiet corner. Lovely apartments, well maintained, over looking the river and very pleasant. Internet is not the best but it works fine. Management and staff are very friendly, they really make you feel home, and... More

Even after reading all of the positive reviews I didn't really have my expectations set that high but I was not entirely impressed. The check-in/out was easy and friendly. Wifi wasn't working when I got there but someone fixed that pretty quick. Great that each unit gets one covered/gated parking. Rooms were big but the decor was maybe nice in... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights. Walking distance from Storey bridge and fortitude valley. Nice views from the higher floors (think I was on Level 14). Nice studio type apartment with excellent facilities. Modern decor and had room with balcony. Would recommend for holiday stays as well.

Loved the location, ticked all the boxes for us. Quiet and fashionable area, close to the river with a ferry stop 5 minutes walk away. There is a great little café downstairs that I would highly recommend for breakfast and/or lunch. General store, deli and wine cellars nearby for supplies. Staff were friendly and helpful, unit was clean and spacious.... More

Stayed on the 9th Floor of Tower 2 in a 1 bedroom apartment - the views of the river were glorious and so interesting watching river life. The Riverfire fireworks were on and although I couldn't see them from the apartment, it was a very easy walk to see them as the Storey Bridge is very close 5-10 mins walk.... More

Overall my experience with DOG was excellent. It was quiet (mostly) and well appointed, with easy access to amenities like the excellent hotel nearby and the delightful ferries. My next-door-neighbours enjoyed themselves on Friday and Saturday night-quite loudly,too, and through the walls I could hear most of their vigorous activity. I was more envious than annoyed, but it was nice... More
