Me and a friend stayed here after flying from the UK. We opted to stay here just as a base really too catch up on sleep and get over our jet lag! The apartment was basic but nice - it had everything you needed to cook etc. Our apartment had a balcony with amazing views over Brisbane as well as... More

Initially we chose to ignore the bad reviews in the hope new management may have made improvements. Upon arrival we learnt that building is with the bank and receivership at the moment. Although the accomodation is rated as 3 stars there are certain basics I would expect such as hot water. We had to wait 45 mins for someone to... More

I don't understand the bad reviews, you get what you pay for. We paid $100 a night for a one bedroom. That was cheaper than anywhere else. And we got a 1 bedroom apartment. Ok it isn't flash. Its 3* quality but for that price on a weekend! It is clean, its basic, it has BRILLIANT cooking facilities (a variety... More

After reading a number of bad reviews, from when the property was under different management, I was a little worried about booking an apartment here. My initial email enquiry was responded to, not only quickly and efficiently, but in the most friendly and accommodating manner I have ever come across and after a few communications with Dee, the property manager,...

Stayed in a Deluxe room on the third floor in February of this year and found it amazing value for money. The room was up to date, air conditioned, clean and very comfortable. Dee was wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. Everything is at your doorstep with buses to all attractions just a walk through the neighbouring park. The... More

I have just come back from staying at Panorama Tower and it was very nice, clean, gorgeous views. Well worth the stay. The manager Deanna was fantastic and so helpful. Thanks Deanna for everything. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Despite reading others peoples views my husband & I thought we'd give it a go. Panorama towers is under new management with a lovely woman name Dianne, she was super organised & was kind enough to let us check in early as my husband & I we're celebrating our 1 yr wedding anniversary. We booked a couple days in advance... More

I read the bad reviews but thought people may have been harsh so I took a chance. I had read that the manager may not have the booking organised, so I rang a few days ahead to confirm everything. He was still surprised and unprepared for our arrival. He then tried to charge me again and I had already paid.... More

We absolutely loved our stay at panorama towers. We are two students who came up from Adelaide looking for quality accommodation in the heart of surfers, willing to forgo some unnecessary luxuries to fit a tight budget. Panorama towers was perfect for us! And it will be perfect for anyone with the same expectations. The view was absolutely stunning and... More

We arrived to the Panorama Towers to find that our booking we had made through WebJet had not gone through, so spent over an hour waiting at reception for the manager to try and sort it out. When we were finally shown to our room, it was a real let-down. It was nothing like it was port raid on the... More
