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

Stayed in this guesthouse while travelling the east coast. The rooms are nice and the building was quiet. Good value for money I felt. There was a bus about 2 minute walk which takes you to the main train station. Can't really say anything bad about it.

Tucked away in suburbia away from the partying crowds, but moments away from shops & cafe's, this was a great find. I stayed for 5 nights and could happily have stayed longer. The rooms are clean and equipped with a microwave, kettle and fridge. Nala and Jacquie could not have been more helpful with their local knowledge and help in... More

I stayed for a few nights while i was re-locating. It was uncomfortable and dirty. Not to mention the half way house for ex prisoners across the road with frequent police visits in the middle of the night. There was a mop and bucket outside my door with dirty water in it. This is so you could mop the shower... More
