Stayed in a self contained villa for a family of five, very spacious but some of the furniture is a bit old. Was one of the coldest nights Brisbane has had in July for a long time and the heating wasn't adequate, any other time would have been ok. Found the staff lovely and helpful. Complimentary breakfast was fantastic simple... More

We stayed here because it had good reviews and we needed an overnight stay before our flight. The hotel advertising said it had free internet which we rely on for maps and directions as this was our first holiday in Australia. All we got was a shrug of the shoulder from the woman in reception who didn't seem bothered one... More

Staff very helpful, room was quite old but adequate. WiFi very poor, could not access emails or update my ipad( only a small update was required. Powdered coffee at breakfast, a coffee maker would have been more suitable. Every else was OK

This was a huge disappointment. I booked this location for 3 reasons, availability for my entire stay, free wifi, and continental breakfast. When I checked in I was told the wifi was down, strike one. They told me it could come up anytime. They gave me $20 to use on the computer in the office, it's $2 for 15 min... More

Just went back for another set of shows at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre; second stay at this motel. Colonial Village is the most convenient option when you don't have a car. They organised a shuttle service to and from the shows. Public transport is right outside or just around the corner, and cheap and easy to use (with a GoCard).... More

Firstly I will just justify being "central". Whilst actually reasonably far North East of the CBD, the location of the property relative to the Freeway that feeds the Sunshine coast, the Gold coast as well as the airport means that it is actually very fast to get almost anywhere while still being reasonably quiet and relaxing. It is about 40... More

We were going to see Mrs Browns boys at Brisbane Entertainment centre. We arrived there and it looked like a holiday park.
