“Not a lot nice to say...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2011

The good - undercover parking and lovely pool that opened at 7am (great for those with early rising kids, terrible for other guests!)
The bad - Everything else. There was a lot of mould and I felt it wasn't a "safe place" for a child. Plus the bedroom had a window into the lounge so not ideal when trying to get a kid to sleep! They only service the rooms weekly but towel change daily. My rubbish was only taken when I made a deal out of it and reception was always closed. The beds were AWFUL, completely lumpy and uncomfortable with the mattresses falling apart, and the "couch" was in a massive state of disrepair. The bathroom stunk of urine, the clock didn't work and the dryer only worked if you held the door shut! The fenced in area hadn't been raked of old leaves and contained a number of disgusting bathroom items from previous guests (ew!). For $175 a night I expected a lot more. This could be an awesome place but they simply HAVE to clean it and do some regular maintenance.

Firstly the apartments are well located with friendly staff. Unfortunately the location leads to one of its issue, noise! The apartments are on Moggill Rd which leads to lots of road noise, the bedrooms all face outwards and with no double glazing it gets noisy. The apartments themselves are adequate but dated, each room has its own small bathroom. The kitchen is unfortunately a letdown, kettle wouldn't switch off when boiling and only one of the four hotplates worked. Secure undercover parking and a pool, BBQ area rounds out the package. There is better available for the price.

I stayed with my 18mth old daughter and felt the room was too dirty for her to sleep or play. The tiles had muddy footprints, stains on the carpets and dust and mould on walls and furniture. The price is outrageous for the quality of the apartment and management rude and unhelpful, I would strongly discourage anyone thinking if booking a room at taringa gardens.

Cannot believe the condition of this place. Families travelled interstate for a wedding and all stayed there for conveniece. Very disappointing and embaressing.
Very obvious no proper cleaning or maintenance is done. Dirt,filth, mould, overgrown gardens, smells and pokey rooms with dated furniture.

The rooms were very dated and dirty, looked like they had not been cleaned for a month. Showers were moldy and not very nice. The apartments were supposed to be 3&1/2 star. The rating may need to be reassessed

Booked online. Room looked nothing like the photo on internet. 2 bedrrom apartment with seating at tabe (in corridor) only for 2. Unbearable "plumbing smell". Very very small and dark.
We were made to pay for 4 night stay at check in (before seeing the room). Never never again!
