“Fabulous stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

The service is great; housekeeping makes sure your room is clean, you get new towels every day. Breakfast is good as well and replenished every day (several serials, bread, sweet toppings like honey and jam, several fruits, milk, yogurt and several fruit juices)! The room provides even opportunities to make tea and coffee as well.
The location is good too, there's a large supermarket, as well as several dining facilities within walking distance. There are several busstations around, including the larger Langlands Park from which you can easily head out to wherever you want.
The owner, Stu, is really friendly and helpful. Enjoy your stay at Kirkland B&B as well!

You'd be excused if your jaw drops when you arrive at this establishment because the property looks more like an average small suburban home in an average suburban street than a hotel or motel in a business or resort area. However, when you enter your room, it is like walking into a Tardis - what you find inside bears no resemblance to what you expect to find from the outside! The room is spacious, tastefully decorated, and spotlessly clean, credit to housekeeping staff. It has everything one would expect from an average hotel room except a safe. Bed is comfortable and air con is quiet. Apparently public transport is really good but my stay was brief and I did not have time to explore. There is no reception foyer, wine bar, dining room or room service. Continental breakfast is provided in your fridge, which means you can eat every thing from the bar fridge, any time, as you wish at no extra cost! One can get a room in a 4 star facility downtown at the same rate but there is some quaint suburban charm that is unique about this facility. It is also gratifying to know that you are supporting a family business directly. If you have business to attend to in the area, this is a perfectly adequate sojourn to rest and recharge.

Room Tip: I don't know how many rooms there are in this place. There is a primary school directly opposite...

The room is large, comfortable and clean; sleeping here is a pleasure, and the refrigerator is well stocked for breakfast. But, counter-intuitively, its greatest virtue is its suburban location simply because it gives you the opportunity to experience Brisbane's amazing bus/train system, which has not only wonderfully integrated train/bus connections but also ROADS (not just lanes) dedicated to buses ONLY. Where in the world can you ALWAYS commute to a city more quickly by bus than by car? Stay at Kirkland, and you will discover the answer.

In Brisbane for a family wedding and lucked out with this accommodation. Close to Reception but even more important quiet, airconditioned for the heat wave, and just so comfortable. Breakfast was great and staff so accommodating. Close to transport to the city but in a lovely suburb. I can't recommend this place highly enough

Brisbane is my town but living away from there, I have had to stay at a number of hotels and B&B's on yearly business trips back. Kirkland House is by far the best for me and has become my home away from home. The atmosphere is just right, the staff discrete and helpful, the place just smells good and its location ideal. Only 10 minutes by express bus at the end of the road to the CBD. Just down the road are great little eateries. Supermarkets nearby if needed. Dry cleaner, newsagent - the lot. There's even a car rental place five minutes walk. I found the breakfast provided was plentiful, the fridge fully restocked each day and room cleaned made the it great to come home to. And then the free WiFi meant I could finish the days work on the balcony, and say hi to the cat. Thanks Stu so much for being there.

Room Tip: I stayed in the little room at the back with its own balcony looking out on to the Frangipani tree a...

We are a lot of traveling around the country and we stayed at Kirkland House just for 3 nights. It's great location, very nice house with very friendly atmosphere. Breakfast was excellent, room was clean, towels has been changed daily, quit place, but near bus station and walk distance to the restaurants or shops. The stuff was very friendly.

Great location for Brisbane. Ideal compromise of being close enough to the CBD - only 12 mins away on the busway from Langlands Park bus stop - but being far enough away to be peaceful and quiet. There are cafes and restaurants close by and a big Coles supermarket about 8 mins walk.
I had a room at the back with its own access. Some decking outside, with a small table and chairs which was good to have breakfast in the sunshine. Breakfast was more than adequate with toast, fruit and cereals.
Bed was amazingly comfortable and the bathroom was well equiped and spotless.
Quite close to the approach to the airport so you can see planes coming in to land although not intrusive. Also blinds on window let light in so from 5.30am the room is bright from that time if light sleeper.
