Ok - so it was cheap. and my instincts when first viewing this place were on high alert. But tired and jaded is ok in my book as long as it is clean and friendly. But I was not prepared for the grubbiness, the shared toilet and showers (admittedly not grubby), nor the lack of any facilities in the room... More

My parents had recommended it as "An experience", and it was. From the first time you see it (you'll spot it!) You walk into a little granny's paradise. Friendly staff, doiley's, thank you note tables (great for a read), helpful staff, and some parking at the back (great for the central location, but check/book it) and seeing colours that shouldn't...

Great location. Only few minutes walking distance to central station, Queens Mall, Cafes and Bars. It is also close to main office buildings. However it is a budget accommodation (Bed & breakfast). Facility include 24 hour tea/coffee making. Not ideal for family with children.

Perfect location close to Brisbane CBD. Walking distance to everything. Rooms are clean, breakfast is sufficient. Staff are very friendly. Perfect pit stop if you are on route somewhere or just going to brisbane for a weekend. Close to Queen street for shops and the river.

We only stayed one night for an airport stopover, but the inn was just what we needed. The bed was comfy, everything was clean, and the location was ideal, just a few minutes walk from the centre of the CBD. The staff were very friendly and run a great bnb, highly recommended if you're after a good quality budget stay

I loved it. Very clean, peaceful, quiet, no surprise in the corners, helpful staff, do recommend strongly. Really close to everything if you don't mind walking for 5mns (close to centre of Brisbane and Central station). Thanks so much and keep up the good work!

Gentle staff, family environment. Old fashion place, clean and tide room. Good location near to central station. Quite simple breakfast. For sure we are coming back if we pass trough Brisbane again, recommend. No fridge inside the room...

For budget accomm in the CBD , this is a great place. The building is old and homely and decorated like someone's house. The managers were lovely and friendly. You can tell the same person has owned it for years. Great stay, thanks.
