Thank you to Val for putting us in this lovely unit. Our accommodation is perfect. All remodelled, spotlessly clean, a pleasure. The unit has everything, like a home away From home. Great pool, walking distance to many shops.

We booked a specific apartment via holiday lettings and confirmed twice In advance that we would have this apartment. The style was different to the other apartments, more a home than a holiday rental. In spite of the advance checks (and confirmation) on arrival we were shown to a different apartment and told the one we had booked had been... More

Just had a 5 day stay at these Apartments and must say was pleasantly surprised. Our ground floor unit was very clean and we had our own little courtyard. We were close to the Power House theatre complex and the river. The Managers were really helpful and gave us tips of where to go and local restaurants etc. We will... More

In early January, stayed at the Powerhouse Apartments & Terraces for a really nice 4 nights. Last time I was on business, this time with my wife. I haven't reviewed a place twice before, but this place is such good value and well located, thought I would. You simply cannot get accommodation of this standard and convenience in Brisbane for...

What a find!!! We would highy recommend staying here Great self contained rooms with cooking facilities, clean tidy and quiet. Very reasonable pricing as well. Close to a shopping centre, restaurants along Brunswick Street and easy walking distance to both buses and the CityCat to the city. We ate at an Indian place and were really happy with the food...

As everyone has said, the apartments are great. They're clean and comfortable. The pool area is very nice. Its a mixed residential and holiday building and there aren't many people about. The bathroom is clean and functional. The bedrooms were a bit stuffy and the fan had this really weird noise so we opened a window for fresh air. This... More

We stayed for 2 nights on a weekend city-mini-break & chose New Farm due to all our familiar haunts in the inner-city / southbank / west end being booked out for the Bledsloe Cup. Sometimes it doesn't hurt to stretch the boundaries of your comfort zones! We'd never been to New Farm before and the Powerhouse Apartments ticked all the... More

As a seasoned business traveller, the Powerhouse Apartments and Terraces were a breath of fresh air. Outstanding quality product, true value for money. Everything you need is there and more. Great location and I will definately be a repeat customer and if you are looking for somewhere in Brisbane to stay, I would strongly recommend you give them a run.

My company selected the Powerhouse apartments for an extended work trip to Brisbane - and I'm really glad they did. The apartment was really well located in New Farm, not too far from the restaurants in New Farm and there are a few within a 1 minute walk. Being near the river and parks made it a very handy and...

I stayed at a 1 BR in the Powerhouse Apartments and Terraces for 2 weeks on business. Absolutely brilliant location near the valley, city Cafe's and Restaurants. It really is the best of both worlds being in a relatively quite location, but quick access to the city. Most mornings, I went for a jog around the river boardwalk, just a... More
