I admit that I didn't stay in the hotel when I realised that the rooms were not en-suite, cost me $5 for the privilege. The guy on reception was a bit blunt when I said I wasn't going to stay. A refund was made with no problem but at a cost. Judging by other reviews this is a good place... More

Hi Charles and Vicky and the other lovely people I met. I cannot thank you enough for the warm welcome and the wonderful service you provide when I stayed with you recently. The fact that you allowed my beautiful dog Molly to stay also was a saving grace as I needed a place for the 2 of us pretty quickly.... More

Thoroughly recommend if you are looking for good value budget accommodation in Brisbane. Rooms well organised and staff helpful. Location is handy, a bit noisy but for the price, can't overly complain about that

We arrived with our little dog and were quickly settled into our room by the very friendly staff. The room was clean and the bathrooms (also clean) only a short walk down the hall. We didn't take advantage of the breakfast as my husband wasn't able to negotiate the steps, but it's a great service to offer. Milk in the... More

Hello Jackie, glad you felt at home. Just remind us next time and we'll get one of the younger ones to pop upstairs and bring the fresh milk! It is a lovely area around here, with Cameron Rocks park across the road and there's also a Council run off-leash doggie park about 5 minutes walk away at the top of... More

This is a great little hotel quite near the airport if you are looking to stay a night or two to get settled on arrival. Rooms are fairly small but all you need and the whole place has a really friendly atmosphere. The managers there are fantastic and do all they can to help you settle in. As we were... More

Hello Cian, My pleasure to be able to help. It can be a minefield looking for a good but cheaper car especially when you're new to the country. I'm sure it will serve you well and hold its value. Thank you for the great review, maybe we'll see you before you go back... Regards, Charles. 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
