Great location for free ferry to city centre & extremely friendly staff, but the room was terrible very run-down and dated, bathroom was not clean. The pool was not pleasant, and there were people living there!! I know it is budget accommodation, but not good at all.

This hotel has a lot of plusses going for it: free wifi, secure parking, a swimming pool in a private courtyard setting and with it being in a good location at Kangaroo Point just off the main road, this means good transport links into the city too. A few niggles meant that it lost a star or so along the... More

A short distance from the city was just what we wanted, this was perfect. Comfy, spacious and quiet, what more could we ask for. Onsite parking easy and plentiful, as well as being secure overnight. The pool and outside seating area was a pleasant surprize, which we used on 2 afternoons. The staff could not do enough for us and... More

Read someone else's review about staff being "overly friendly and helpful" and laughed because I didn't think that type of customer service still existed. Well it does exist still at this hotel. Had a room by the pool which was nice and clean. Room looked like it had recently been redone. New bathroom fixtures. Close to South Bank and shopping... More

It's just great to be greeted at reception by friendly, courteous staff members and find your room to be clean & with all the necessary hotel supplements and up to your expectations. Parking on site at no extra charge and even a pool, plenty of eateries around and walking distance to the Gabba - Bris

We stayed here one night before a flight because it was affordable. Also, We had a car so we needed a place with parking which is somewhat difficult to find in Brisbane. The location isn't very accessible without a car. Our room was huge, with three beds, but the bathroom was tiny. My main complaint was the strong, smoke smell... More
