Thanks CeoJo for your review on your recent stay with us. The location here is perfect really – the view, the free ferry and the convenience of the onsite restaurant. Perhaps next time, you could book a deluxe room? They have been refurbished and look great! We look forward to welcoming you back to our hotel next time you’re in... More

Like the title says it was a good location. However we were going to the city a lot and each cab cost us around $20 so if you want more of the city I'd suggest staying closer to the CBD. The room was clean however the carpet was ripped and worn out in a lot of places, the bathrooms were... More

We have previously stayed here a few years ago and did so again for 5 nights. We were in one of the older rooms which was OK but is showing its age a little bit. 2 bedroom apartment and spacious. Good views of the river. The hotel provides free wi-fi but reception within the rooms is almost zero however open... More

My family and I were really happy and comfortable here on our nine day stay in Brisbane. Lovely room and lovely location. Kitchen had everything we needed and all the appliances were in top condition and very easy to use. The furniture was very nice, and the lounge piece was very comfy that you could sleep in it. I loved... More

I stayed there for 1 night (a Saturday night) over the weekend with my partner. It was exactly how we expected and we were very pleased. The 1 bedroom apartment was fully equipped with all we needed, we enjoyed the buffet breakfast and found it quite good value with the Living Social voucher we had been gifted by a friend.... More

Have stayed here over a dozen times and generally found it good. However, this last time the permeant residents in the unit above ours were extremely noisy nearly every night of our eight night stay. Drums, singing, shouting, thumping - Horrid. Overhearing their conversations they were either drunk or stoned and thus we put off complaining out of fear of... More

We got a deal on Groupon and found this great value. Very nice apartment with a good view and good location. Friendly and helpful reception. Walk through the underpass and then walk to the top of the cliffs at Kangaroo Point to get a great view of the city - especially nice at sunset. We walked back along the bottom... More

We spent 5 nights at Dockside. The room was clean, well maintained, and the desk staff helpful. It came with one car park, and the complex houses a IGA convenience store and several restaurants. The location is great. You can take the City Hopper ferry into the city, or walk/bike across the Story bridge into the city. Would stay here... More

Nice place to stay in Brisbane. The staff are very gentle and kindly. Close to the river, you can easily go to the center (malls, supermarkets, etc.) using the ferry services. I lived there for 3 months and it was an amazing experience to live there.

We wanted to stay near Brisbane, but not to be caught in the city when we needed to drive. The price for Dockside was reasonable when we booked (some months ahead) and we were not disappointed. The parking was easy and the free ferry on the doorstep is a very convenient way to get into the city. My only minor... More
