“Nice but noisy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2005

We stayed here in June 2004. We were supposed to stay for 10 days but left after five. The biggest problem is that the home is situated on a very busy street, and we could hear traffic noise 24/7. The owners are extremely nice and friendly, but the self-contained apartment we stayed in, while nice, was rather dark and cramped. It is also quite a hike into downtown Brisbane from this location, and there's not much in the way of restaurants or shopping around the house.

Many thanks for your feedback...

At the time the above guests stayed with us we were new owners of Catherine House. Catherine House has since undergone some beautiful renovations both internally and externally. The above apartment described in 'Nice but noisy" no longer exists...in it 's place are two fresh 'Boutique Studio Apartments' each with their own kitchenette and jazzy black and white bathrooms. They are light and airy and we have received great feedback since their completion.

Catherine House has recently been painted inside and out - even though she was built in 1881 - she is as pretty as a picture!! Catherine House is located on Kelvin Grove Rd, which a main street providing fast and convenient access into the heart of Brisbane. Our AAA Tourism Rating for noise is 8 out of a possible 10 points (10 means no noise) due to installation of double glazed windows over the original windows. You can expect some traffic noise, but it is minimal. If you are looking for extremely quiet surroundings, you may need to seek accommodation outside of the city.

We love sharing our warm home that offers convenience, comfort, outstanding brekkies...and the friendliest hosts!!
