My go to accommodation when I need to stay close to the West End & Southbank. Rooms are clean, just a little tired but for the price represent value. Staff are very friendly and the place is secure with free parking. The best breakfasts are to be had in the West End, which is very close. Also it’s only a... More

Great place to stay and brilliant value. Like everywhere in Brisbane that I stayed, you have to pay extra for wifi. I thought I'd just shout out for the staff here; I picked up food poisoning from the Brisbane Convention centre and these guys were great at helping me get to a hospital, get treated and sorted out an extension...

Pros: really great staff, price, proximity to the city (approximately 30 min by walk) Cons: no free WiFi, no elevator, a bit smelly There are a lot of restaurants in South Brisbane. There is also Coles supermarket nearby. Overall, area seems safe but I would not recommend staying in this hotel alone.

I'm writing this on request of my mum (65yrs old) who I booked into this place for 3 nights around the 20th of April... After we read all the other reviews, she steadied herself for the idea that it could be bad and was even mentally prepping to go to the supermarket and get her own cleaning supplies BUT!!!! She...

Suited our needs. Proximity to Brisbane Convention Centre was perfect. Best of all the Café Briz and their friendly & welcoming staff . . . It may have been 'budget price' but you couldn't get anything that good, and that close to all our needs. Pete and Di Lane, Mackay, Qld

Stuck here for business. Staff fair at best. The whole place stinks like vomit,beer, and bleech. This place needs an upgrade as everything is very worn and old. The price is ok but I would probably choose a Hostel over this place.

For what you get at this price - good location, 3* room, some nice staff, quiet, close to southbank - it is good. If you compare it to the $200 options nearby, you'll be disappointed. The room and resort was a bit tired, but sufficient for a place to crash.

I have stayed at the Sapphire Resort in Brisbane many times. It is always clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. It has rooms to suit many situations. I have stayed as a couple, with friends and even a room with enough beds to cater for two sisters and three kids. They are not fancy rooms but comfortable. This... More

If you are looking for inexpensive accommodation then this place is worth checking out. There are no lifts which keeps the prices reasonable. The staff are very pleasant and helpful; it is ideally located for a short walk to the WestEnd...check out the markets on Friday night..food is fantastic - and an easy walk to Southbank. The cafe Briz has... More
