We visited Brisbane to watch the state of origin so it was a week night that we visited. We were welcomed by the hostess and having paid on line found a smooth transition to the room. Annie's I think is designed with the British style of B&B in mind, it has a lovely little courtyard, excellent location close to the... More

Absolutely gorgeous little BnB set right in the heart of Brizzy with easy access to markets and trains esp if u grab a cab u can be anywhere in minutes. History lining the walls, beautiful old doyleys and coverlets are what you'll find here. If you like the modern and new type of accom this place won't be for you..... More

As already said in many other reviews it is not brand new or shiny. However even the whole place is a bit older and used it was still clean. Rooms are quite small but ok for two people and baggage for one or two days. Staff was very friendly. A simple breakfast (Cornflakes, Toast, Jam and coffee is included). Wifi... More

Oh dear. Although this place seems good value it is tired and minimalist in its offerings. Beds comfortable but how many B&bs these days have no TV in room and an ensuite is an exception. I haven't had to share a bathroom since my backpacking days. This needs to be the hotel inspectors next project as the minimum it needs... More

Annie's Shandon Inn made us feel home far away from home. It's an unique place to be. The staff welcommed us like long lost Friends. Well, the rooms are maybe a bit Retro but thats what makes the charming style of Annie's. Just a 10 min walk to the city with all of its touristy spots its perfect if you... More

I recently stayed at Annie Shandon's again and as this time I was in a single room (without en-suite) thought I would provide another review. While the room was looking a bit tired, the room was clean and the bed comfortable. While airconditioning was provided in the room I didn't use it and actually slept with the window open -... More

We normally use the Trip Advisor community to guide us on where to stay for our trips and have always found overall reviews to be accurate. This is the first time that process has let us down. If you are thinking of staying here read the bad reviews as you'll find them accurate - particularly the ones about the size... More

I did a three day course in Brisbane and rather than commute up and down from the coast, I thought I would stay in Brisbane. I'd stayed here a few years ago and decided to give it another go as I had fond memories of the place. It didn't disappoint. This is an old guest house in Upper Edward Street,... More
