“Heart of Brisbane and Feels Like Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

I used to stay at some of the hotels around the CBD of Brisbane but due to company policy changes i had to find a cheaper solution. I used to walk by this place all the time but never paid much attention to it. I decided to give Manor Apartment Hotel a try and let me tell you something, I don't regret it. Truthfully, i wish i knew about this place earlier as it beats pretty much all local hotels.

For the price I paid it was the best deal in CBD Brisbane. I had a kitchen, living room, nice bedroom and a bathroom with a washer/dryer (no more expensive hotel washing fees). The room was exceptionally clean and it felt like a second home. Huge plus was that the windows opened, many hotels i stayed at didn't. There is a grocery store just a few steps away so it was easy to get food every night.

The internet was a bit slow at times but i didn't use it that much anyway. Free breakfast was available and selection was good. There is no pool or room service if that is a must but with all the good places to eat who needs room service.

I highly recommend this place. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Huge plus....Fast Elevator!!!

Room Tip: Ask for higher floor to minimize street noise. 6th floor was a good spot.

Stayed here for three nights whilst attending sons wedding in Brisbane. You could not get a better location for the city and walking to restaurants, Southbank, ferry terminals, train station. Taxi rank just outside the door.
Even though it is on a busy city street it was very quiet in the rooms. Large spacious two bedroom apartment with everything you need. Very clean and very comfortable beds. Reception quick and helpful. Breakfast included in price is a basic continental.
I would definitely stay here again.

I arrived from Perth around 9pm and walked up to the Queen St mall (2 minutes). Lots of little street bars open and a friendly ambience overall. The room was very quiet. I booked a one bedroom suite, queen bed was comfortable. Spacious rooms, kitchen, laundry facilities and comfortable couch. Someone had cooked a lot of onions previously and that odour kicked in when I turned the air con on. For breakfast, the hotel provides a reasonable continental breakfast. Ask at the front desk if there are any dinner deals available, I received a half price voucher to a nice local restaurant. I would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: email the hotel direct and see what deals are available.

Stayed here for 3 nights. The location is ideal, 5 mins walk to the river and the free ferry and just along from the Queen street pedestrian area.

Room was a good hotel room, not really an apartment as it had no cooking facilities. Breakfast was good quality.

Unusually no free WIFI but there was an internet connected computer in the breakfast room for free use.

Overall a pleasant place to stay in Brisbane.

We are a family of 2 adults & 2 teenagers. We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment. Our room was clean and tidy, had comfortable beds, no external noise problems and a great washing machine & dryer which were well utilised.

Our bathroom was a little "tired" showing some water damage and warping on the vanity. The teenagers took exception (and rightly so) to the signage that stated the smoke detectors were sensitive and that bathroom doors should be left open when showering due to excess steam build up.

We were unable to access Foxtel on our tv, despite it being advertised as part of our room package. Not having access to free wifi is frustrating and at a daily charge of $20 we found this to be excessive.

The location is great, and staff were always friendly and helpful. Breakfast that was included in the price was great.

As a family we need an apartment. For modern but basic we stay at Oaks, and for a classy feel we often stay at McArthur Chambers apartments as perfect location above shops for food, Queen st. mall at doorstep, restaurants, Myers, movies, South-bank. Love the character & location. Tried Manor Apartments as only a couple doors up and just for a change. Pro - Exceptional breakfast - basic foods but awesome quality -yum! And takes stress out of start of day. Con - apartment a little smaller, no pool, and car park not in building but across the road. But none of these bothered me at all. Enjoyed and fully recommend!
