Great for city sightseeing - park and food court across road, 3 minute walk to Queen St mall, and within walking distance to Southbank and Eagle St Pier. The one bedder had full kitchen, dining, and washer/dryer. Room very quiet but unfortunately lights in between the hotel and the opposite building were on 24/7 and left our bedroom very bright at nighttime. Also a couple of maintenance issues, shower door did not close so floor got quite wet, and shower jets were hard and sprayed in all directions. Good base for short or long stay.

Room Tip: Room 14 has bright lights shining into bedroom so I would choose a higher room or room further to th...

Travelling to Brisbane every week for work, I welcome what is world class friendly and down to earth service with excellent apartment style accomodation in the heart of the CBD. It is truly a home away from home for me and Andrew and his team do a wonderful job

My first time in Brisbane was made a delight by this friendly, spotlessly clean, roomy hotel. I chose it because it was a 10 minute walk from where I was working, and it had windows that opened (hooray!) My room was really quiet, even thought the hotel is right on the Queen street mall. It really lived up to its reputation, with the whole stay being managed efficiently - the breakfast was really sweet too. Will be back.

We have been looking for a base in Brisbane when we travel down from the country and we think we have actually found it in Manor Apartments!

The location is fantastic, so central. Our room whilst on the small side (we had a studio) was beautiful and functional. It is nice to see a hotel with a colour scheme other than white, black, brown or grey, we loved the floral cushions and throw. Our room worked well, TVs (yes 2 TVs one in the sitting area and one in the bedroom), power points, and bathroom were all well positioned, this is so often not the case in many hotels with no power point near a mirror for the hairdryer. It was so quiet you wouldn't have known you were on Queen Street (we were on the 7th floor at the side to the front) the air conditioning was excellent and if you wanted fresh air you could open the window, not us in the middle of summer though.

The gourmet continental breakfast was excellent, they are not over claiming when they say gourmet. There are I think 5 sorts of cereal, 2 different flavours of yogurt, 3 flavours of juice, all different sorts of bread for toast including excellent raisin toast. There are even boiled eggs, ham and cheese! as well as filter coffee and a selection of Twinnings teas. There is a lovely old man in the breakfast room to keep it in order and breakfast television playing so you can watch the news or there is a selection of papers if you are bored with looking out of the window, the breakfast room is at the back on the 4th floor.

We loved this hotel and we will definitely be staying there next time we come to Brisbane!

Room Tip: High floor preferably at the front so you get a view of Post Office Square and Queen Street.

i spend 2 nights in it. Excelent location with short distant to Central station. room is comfortable and clean. good for small family staying for a few days.
however, car park access is a bit of hassle for first timer or foreigner not familiar with Brisbane. no proper drop off area.
short distant walk to Queen Street where food, shopping are available.
Free breakfast in a very localised and simple which is a plus point compare to many other Apartment around the vincinity.
Friendly staff who help and provide a lot of information and recommendation.

The look is 1980's, the furniture pine wood, the design… well he didn't, looked like someone bought all the specials. My wifi didn't connect. This is not a hotel but a place to stay that is fairly comfortable. Very central and for business when you do not need comfort but proximity to business, it can be for you. Breakfast is a self serve room affair, of cereals , canned fruit, dubious ham and cheese and toast your own breads. But for Brisbane this is GOOD!
