Two owners of this guesthouse were wonderful. They were the kindest people I met in Brisbane. The condition of the room I used was comfortable. The one thing that keeps come up in my mind is wish there was an air conditioner inside the room. But still! they do provide a fan to keep yourself in a fair cool condition.

the best place to stay in this town. Wonderful people, room with great accommodation, in a lovely and quiet street with everything near (shop, bus, transport, park, organic shop with the best smoothies ever, restaurant, coffee, post, river, bar, cinema). You have a small kitchen in your own room with sink, microwave, fridge and all you need to cook. You... More

Jacque & Nala are extremely friendly and helpful, and the guesthouse has a nice location and a very nice garden etc. However, I did see a lot of cockroaches & geckos, and everything in the shared kitchen is just too old and dirty to use. The room itself seemed to be quite clean, but it was small.

It was a pleasure having you stay with us. We are an older Queenslander style home and try our best in keeping the common areas cleaned on a daily basis. We do have plans to improve the kitchen facilites. We wish you all the very best. More

Absolutely lovely place, stayed there for five nights and would definitely go back if we needed a place to stay. Close to everything, Coles 100 metres down the streat with excellent fruit and veggie shop right next to it, bus stop right outside ellie's guest house, and lovely markets just a stroll away. The rooms were really nice and clean,... More

I have travelled a lot, paid for expensive hotels and have been disappointed. Ellie's was simply wonderful and a lady who comes out on ny eve to let me in after I had made a late booking deserves special credit. This was perfect for me, a spotlessly clean room, kitchen facilities and comfortable bed - what more could I ask... More

If you are looking for reasonably priced and convenient accommodation then Ellies Guesthouse may well be suitable for you. We had a room with ensuite bathroom close to New Farm village shops, the Powerhouse, city hopper ferry and a range of restaurants and cafes.

After the wearysome trip from Europe to Brisbane, I arrived early in the morning. Cafes, restaurants and shops are just a 5 min walk down the road, so I got myself some coffee and was immediately drawn into the quarter. Pretty Queensland houses, a hill with a church and, a little further, the river. Ellies´s Guesthouse is located in New... More

A lovely place to stay. Not a hotel experience, which was great, as the facilities allowed us to come and go as we pleased, cook our own meals or bring back a take - away. Laundry facilities on site were a great boon. Places on the veranda or in the pretty garden to sit and read, soak up the sun... More
