For what the rooms are $125 is a bit on expensive side. Good thing it's close to Indooroopilly shopping centre and the train station otherwise I probably wouldn't have stayed here. No A/C in the bedroom so you had to leave the door open and put the A/C in the living area on. Just average, definately nothing special.

We stayed here for 2 nights in June 2014 and paid $125/night. If you are looking for a place to stay for business locally then this place is just ok. It is a typical motel style accommodation with basic cooking facility. My comments on this motel would be: Heater takes a long time to warm up TV is tiny (~26... More

Near station and indooroopilly shopping centre. Bus to UQ stop right in front of the lodge. Managers are very friendly and helpful. No street noise at all, beds are comfortable. Like upper level room, beautiful view. Our family have enjoyed our stay in forest lodge apartments.

We were in this place in march during 10 days approx. The landlord and his wife were very kind and friendly. I had a problem with the internet and he helped me with care. The environment is full of trees and plants, and you feel safe sleeping in this place. If we go to Brisbane again we will go to... More

Eight family members including two little girls stayed in two ground floork side by side apartments for our son's wedding and it was ideal yet again. The girls could run backwards and forwards, there is a lovely quite grassy area out the front and the place is set back from the road and surrounded by trees so you don't know... More

I stayed in Forest Lodge Apartments in June 2013, after a business trip in Brisbane. I choose Forest Lodge because of its quiet location close to Indooroopilly train station and within walking distance (well, 30min walking) from the University of Queensland. True to its website, Forest Lodge is located in a bushy area in the suburbs. It is ideally located:... More

This is well situated within the suburbs of Brisbane. Close to the rail and direct to the city centre and major sporting events. Without a doubt the hosts Ian, Liz and Mel make you feel at home from home regardless of being on business or vacation. Fantastic welcome and they could not do enough to make the stay most welcome.... More

We found Forest Lodge a few years ago when staying near relatives and it was great as most other accomodation is in the city, so this is our second visit. It's very tucked away and although surrounded by houses when on the complex it's very quiet and secluded. It comprises two main two-story blocks, with on-site parking and well-maintained greenery...

Arrived on a Sunday afternoon at 3PM, nobody at a locked reception area, tried to phone the telephone number only to get an answering machine, left a message, but never got a reply. I had a confirmed booking and had already paid for the room. Luckily I found a room at the Lucia Gardens for myself and family for the... More
