Great stay and value for money. Got a room with a view of river for four people for less than $200. Rooms well appointed and clean and close to free ferry into city. Good location close to city in a nice area with river walks.

The rooms and amenities are old but it is super clean and handy... Would I go back? Yes. The girls at the front desk are very friendly and helpful too. The view from the room was very nice...

3rd stay at Dockside - very easy to find & enjoy being walking distance to Story Bridge Hotel and wonderful Japanese Tapas close by. We had top 2 bedroom apartment on 13th floor, views over Brisbane River so relaxing, and easy ferry into city. Parking little tricky but close by and free.

Dear Lorraine B, It's wonderful to hear from our repeat guests and I'm so glad you're taking advantage of the great pubs and restaurants around Kangaroo Point. They are quite a highlight of the area.

Pros: nice view, good location, convenient free secure parking Cons: reception staff, breakfast, amenities There was confusion about the room arrangements so we ended up having to pay an extra $45 for a trundle bed. There are two bathrooms, one with a bath which is nice albeit without a plug (apparently they're bringing it up). Breakfast is limited if you... More

Located in a complex of similar units we stayed in a two bedroom deluxe apartment on the top floor. The unit was clean and had ample space. The shower was large but the en-suite was a bit dodgy, certainly not 'deluxe'. Surprisingly, there was no tea-towel provided, the cooking pans were cheap and nasty, the internet unreliable and the TV... More

First visit, my apartment on 2nd floor had a great view of the river and was very clean. (though around the taps could be better) The location right near the Dockside ferry, was ideal for me as I needed to go to New Farm and the city. It was a really good size bedroom and lounge , appliances worked fine,... More

Having read previous reviews we booked the renovated Apartment. It didn't appear recently renovated, however it was clean and welcoming and we were glad we paid the extra. The decor was pretty, the bed was comfortable, as was the apartment and the river views from the balcony were a bonus. Reception staff were helpful and friendly. The complimentary continental breakfast... More

Standard = unrenovated, grubby, worn and with furniture you couldn't give to a charity shop so beware! Getting a discounted rate because you booked through an online site? Then don't expect the same treatment given to those who have paid through the nose. I'd never stay there again. The staff were very sympathetic about the condition of both 'standard' apartments...
