“summit not really”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Room was tidy and well maintained, unfortunately thats where it stops. Very noisy not only from street noise and nieghbors. Then there was the air-conditioner which rattled constantly and from time to time even howled. Didn't have any problems working out what the neighbors were up to, could smell the cooking all through our room along with a few other illicit smells. The kitchen set up is just plain crazy as any form of cooking risks setting the fire alarm off as the rangehood was next to useless. Would not recomend these apartments to anyone.

Room Tip: Freinds of ours selected a room higher up and on the otherside of the block which was very quiet but...

The best place to stay if you need to be close to St Andrews hospital. Apartments are spacious and provide all you need. The complex is aging but is well maintained. Reception is very helpful and accommodating. If you are staying for leisure the Spring Hill loop bus is a great way to get from The Summit to Brisbane City. It is a free service. There are 2 stops handy to the accommodation.
There is a nice pool and a gym also available on site.
The common areas of the complex are kept spotlessly clean.
We have stayed 3 times and have been more than happy each visit.

Room Tip: The back of the complex is further away from the main road so should be a bit quieter.

We stayed at the Summit Apartments for two days just after Christmas 2014 and had a recently renovated room on the 6th floor. The apartment was spacious and modern - quiet and had all the accesories necessary to make it a comfortable stay. Staff were really friendly and accommodating and the location was awsome being only 10 mins from the city centre, a short walk to the Sportsman's Hotel and a short cab ride from Petrie Tce and good food options. There were a few negatives but they were insignifcant to the positives - cleanig was a little under parr and the A/C dripped water from the exhaust between the lounge and bedrooms. But on the other had the attention to detail was excellent. We had a blown lamp bedside, decided not to report it but the next day it was fixed.

Likewise, the pool was great and a fantastic spa.

I always guage a hotel by the idea of......... 'would I stay there again?' ......... in this event, given the price ($145.00) and the recently renovated room (6th Floor) - yes I would. Definetely value for money.

Room Tip: Not sure about other floors and conditions of the rooms but 6th floor was excellent.

For our purpose it was ok accom, large room, good comfortable bed, kitchen good, proximity to activities good. Paid $149.
Generally the apartment was a bit smelly and could do with a bit of an overhaul. Undercover secure parking provided but difficult to find a spot that's not reserved.
Lift carpet old replacing required.
Shot walk to CBD.

Room Tip: Ask for high floor, above 6 for best views and above street noise. Maybe South facing rooms best.

You can tell from the first minute you're in here that this Is an old building, which didn't worry us as we weren't going to be spending heaps of time in the rooms. Underground carpark is free which is great but it's really small/tight which makes it difficult to get around, but it's not the end of the world. Common areas could do with a bit of a spruce up to bring it back to a higher rating. The rooms are good, we had the 1 bedroom which also had a single. The room is huge which would be great if you were spending time in the room. Kitchen is pretty stock standard, fairly well equipped.
Bathroom looks nice and you'd assume it has been newly renovated, however a bit more cleaning is needed as there is mould around the edges in the shower, luckily the black tiles mask it, but it still needs to be done.
Beds were comfy and staff were friendly, I would stay here again if I was on a budget in Brisbane.

If I could up load photos to this review it would turn your stomach. The cough is covered in stains and looks like it had been picked up off the side of the road, the bath has mold and had not been cleaned in some time, don't get me started on the kitchen! Will never ever stay here again, so many cleaner apartmentts in Bris - take your pick just dont book here. Only thing going fir it is location.

We had an overnight stay here in a two bedroom apartment. Nice stroll to the city centre. We drove from sydney and arrived well before checkin time. The staff member was very kind and helpful and quickly arranged our room, which was fantastic. Bed was very comfortable and noise level was quiet given the convenient city location.
