The rooms were very comfortable and clean, the bed and pillows were the best... More

We had occasion to stay overnight in Brisbane and decided to book into Kingsford Smith at the last minute .. I called from our previous destination and my call and booking was handled professionally .. When we arrived (9:30am) the room was not ready, as we were informed, so we made the short trip into town to kill some time... More

For an overnighter near the airport this place is the best! Comfiest beds I've slept in in ages, very friendly, helpful staff and free wifi! Also just a short walk to Portside for dinner and a movie at the Dendy. Highly recommended for a weary traveller.

Stayed here for one night prior to boarding a cruise ship. The family room is fantastic!! Seperate room with two singles for the kids and queen bed in main room for adults. You can walk to the terminal in a few minutes. The walk on road is a bit rough as they were doing roadworks. Friendly staff , very clean...... More

It was so nice to be welcomed with a smile! The staff make you feel at home, are happy to assist in any way and we... More

Because of my work, I've had to transit several times in Brisbane for a one night stay over the past three months. Each time I've stayed in a different hotel in the same area (looking for deals). This has been the best so far. The location is perfect - close to the airport and a short walk to restaurants at... More

The room was very clean and even though it was on the road side it was very quiet due to the double glazing on the window. Had a deluxe room with a spa. Room 212. Was extremely disappointed on the size of the spa. Also the shower head. It only sprayed with needles or downpour. My partner who is 180cm... More

This nice Motel is located close to Brisbane airport and the shipping terminal on the Brisbane River. It is very conveniently located albeit on a busy and noisy road, especially if you leave the window open. The office staff are excellent and very helpful. We stayed two nights using it as a base to attend a wedding in Brisbane. The... More
