Had to find a place stay with our 2 cats and 1 dog plus 2 kids and 2 adults!!! These guys put us up in 2 rooms. The pet friendly room was on the ground floor perfectly set up for animals. There is even a courtyard overlooking the room downstairs and a grassed back yard. Our room for mum and... More

Love this little hidden gem, small intimate hotel that is pet friendly. My sister & I stayed here with her big fur baby for a couple of nights & we couldn't fault it. Even if you are staying with or without pets it is great value for money. Great location, on the river, the rooms are small but clean, cozy... More

This is a solid inexpensive option with fantastic staff, comfy beds and is in a great location for the airport. We booked last minute and needed somewhere affordable, this delivered. Most importantly it was clean!

My hubby and I recently stayed here for a night as we had to fly out early the next morning. It was fabulous value for money. We had a room with a view of the river and it was an easy walk to Breakfast Creek Hotel. Naturally being on Kingsford Smith Drive it was noisy but that is the city!... More

Thank you CountryChick! Yes, there is a great view from that room, and luckily Kingsford Smith Drive is much quieter at night than in the daytime. Nice to wake up to the sun shining on the river, though. Thank you for your review, and we hope to see you again, Regards, Charles. More

My sister and I stayed here for two nights while in Brisbane. The hotel is a really good value with the included parking and breakfast. The shared bathrooms are kept very clean as well as the rooms. The owner/manager was very friendly and helpful when we had a few questions. It's not right in the city, but we enjoyed the... More

You're a naughty boy! The conditions posted in the Pet Room clearly state the beds are for the people, you bring your own doggie bed or ask us and we can help! Luckily we do inspect the room carefully after each visit and it was pretty obvious you had ignored our rules, so we had everything stripped down and replaced... More

We stayed here as a group the evening before we set sail on a cruise. The location of the Motel is superb for this specific purpose. But aside from this - it was extremely easy to get into the City with a bus stop across the road. We caught the citycat back to the Motel and had a fantastic tour... More

We stayed three nights in a family room. The owner was fantastic so helpful and kind which made our stay so much more relaxed. As my partner and I both regularly work in brisbane we have had many experiences with budget accommodation and the kingsford riverside inn is definitely the best. The free continental brekky was a great money saver... More

Thank you for your kind comments Danikkae. Any of our staff would have been the same - we're always conscious that people are away from their home support and it's really our pleasure to make our guests as comfortable as possible. Looking forward to seeing you again, Regards, Charles. More

I stayed here based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and on what seemed a reasonable price. This place isn't the Ritz, but it is clean and the staff very helpful. Breakfast was included but is no more than a choice of cereals, some bread and a toaster and some hot and cold drinks. If you're looking for somewhere to... More

Hello H-H, Thank you for your review! I hope you didn't miss out on breakfast - it's usually toast, marmalade etc, cheese slices, fruit juice, Tea & Coffee, cereals and fruit salad.. On weekdays the buses run to and from the City Centre about every 15 to 20 minutes. Frequent for Brisbane but sadly inadequate if you're used to the... More
