My husband and I stayed at Allender Apartments together with 2 other couples on Saturday 11 Feb 2012.
We were in one of the beautiful older heritage style rooms. The room was really well-equiped with a big fridge, full kitchen, lounge area, tv and great quality kingsize bed. The bathroom was well appointed and the water pressure was just fine. Air con was perfect - quiet and powerful :) We also had a little closed in patio with 2 comfy little chairs and a table. Our first impression was WOW! All this in New Farm for under $200 a night?! The atmosphere of the room was beautiful, the old Queensland glass windows, the gardens, the room smelt lovely, not disinfected like most hotels.
We were able to check in at 12 instead of 2 with not a problem. Plenty of free onstreet parking and great bars, restaurants around the corner. When we came home at midnight (after a big wedding at The Powerhouse), the owners didn't mind us taking up a courtyard for a last drink and natter before we went to bed.
All in all, I would definitely recommend the Allender Apartments for friendly management, value for money, super comfy facilities, location and cleanliness. I would rather stay here than in a shoebox in a big hotel in the city. We'll be back :)
