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

Our flight got cancelled and we needed accommodation late for a 3.30am return trip to the airport. Followed the taxi drivers suggestion: "this place always has vacancies". Now we know why. I will say the man at front desk was helpful. We were able to store some of our luggage in the garage, so that was great. The room was... More

Thank you for your frank review, which I think might have been different if you had any experience of running a small business in Australia, particularly in a Capital City. What a dream it would be to sit back and just rake in the money but life isn't like that that! In the past year alone we have spent $100,000... More

I stayed at the Kingsford Riverside Inn as I required budget accommodation close to the airport. Staff were friendly and helpful; there was parking for my car; the room was clean (shared communal bathroom); and the breakfast ( cereal, toast, juice and coffee) was fine. I would stay here again if looking for similar.

Two of us used a standard room and were pleased with the value. It was a small room, about 4m x 4m but the price (for Brisbane City) along with the free breakfast and excellent strength WiFi made for great value. Our window was single glazed so stayed shut pretty much all the time due to the high volumes of... More

Hello Kiwitonita, Thank you for your great review! The windows and Ranch Sliders are actually made of laminated glass, That's why they cut off the street noise so well. I enjoyed our chats and It was a pleasure to have you with us! Regards, Charles. More

I needed a cheap hotel to stay in overnight between flights, and I chose Kingsford Riverside Inn because of the good reviews and the fact that it was less expensive than most other hotels near the airport. It was a great choice! The staff was really friendly and even knocked on my door in the morning to make sure I... More

Stayed over night whilst in Brisbane. Comfortable distance out of the "Fortitude Valley" area. Quiet and was given a room facing the river. There are shared restroom facilities and the price was better than if one were staying inside of the more bustling city. Across the street is a gas station for snacks, etc, should one want. Downstairs in the... More

The hotel is a way out from town, so you have to catch a bus into the city. However they are quite cheap and stop outside the hotel. Room was very spacious, with a tv, fridge, tea and coffee making facilities. Free breakfast which was a bonus. The shared facilities were well maintained. It is a great place if you... More
