“Proximity to airport good, overall value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

We had 5.30am checkin so chose this place as it seemed close ti airport and was. Very clean rooms, although small and basic in amenities. Bathroom was clean and functional. Pillows were DIVINE!!! Air con unit old but effective. reception was stressed with many checking in and only one person on duty. Communal dining area has 4 different vending machines which seemed handy to those using them. We paid $14 for airport transfer at 4.30am which was right on time. They recommneded Hamilton Hotel for a pub with good steak meals, a $15 taxi fare away but well worth the visit. We'll stay here again if needing early flight start out of BNE.

I only needed a bed overnight before a 5.30am flight and chose a budget room at just over $100 - my expectations were low. But boy - these rooms are like prison cells. No effort was made at creating a warm atmosphere. Bare floors, bare walls, steel fittings found in public bathrooms. Furniture arranged in rather awkward ways and positions. I frequently travel overseas and love the budget concepts, eg. Holiday Inn Express, who do it very successfully and well. But this was too much (or too less, rather). Not coming back and suggest you, as the reader, think twice about it too.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere.

All I needed was a bed and a shower before a very early flight, so this hotel did the trick. Very basic, very little room however. Glad my hubby wasn't with me. Front office very polite and helpful. Would do it again.

They say you always get what you pay for although I am always amazed how much cheap accommodation still costs. We booked into the hotel because a travel agent suggested it was both convenient and cheap and it is. We were travelling with maximum luggage, 74 kgs in total, changing residential countries and were quite dismayed when we opened the room door and saw the tiny space we had to stack it for our two days stay. No tea making facilities, no cupboard, shelf space to speak of. Reception was friendly and helpful. Explained about the communal dining area with its communal fridge and the vending machines in the corner. It all reminds me of the communal arrangements in camping grounds. But there are regular shuttles to and from the airport and that is why one comes to such places, just don't expect to be pampered or bother booking in for a holiday. This place is simply a stopping place before you move to the next stage of your life.

Ibis has been recently renovated and is clean, comfortable and convenient and reasonably priced, a rare commodity close to Brisbane airport. Staff without exception were friendly and helpful including the excellent airport shuttle driver (Winston).
