“Great place in a quiet neighborhood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

One Thornbury is a really comfortable B&B on the outskirts of the Brisbane CBD. My room, #5 in the back, was clean and comfortable. Nothing fancy but much better in my opinion than staying in a large high rise in the city. Breakfast was included in the price of my room which was very adequate - cereals, yogurt, fresh fruit, toast, meats and cheeses - and the coffee was delicious. Woolworths grocery store is a 5 minute walk away as is a terrific up market pub called the Alliance. I took the Con-X-ion shuttle to and from the airport for a mere $20 each way. That was a great service and very reasonably priced.

Room Tip: #5 in the back was very quiet.

Located centrally within easy walking distance to central train station, CBD and ferry terminals, but in a quiet road. Combines 19th century charm with modern standards. Very kind and helpful host. Unique setting for breakfast area in a jungle wintergarden.

Beautiful restored villa and rooms about 15 mins walk from CBD. Very friendly and free parking from 5pm to 8am (might have to feed to meter at other times). Easy access to the airport road. And wonderful breakfast.

Dear One Thornbury staff,

We had such a lovely stay with you this weekend. I only wish we could've stayed more than one night.
Your staff were so friendly and very accommodating. The rooms are very cute and comfortable with lovely bathrooms, and my favourite part of your accommodation has to be the courtyard which really gives you the feel of a retreat in the middle of the city. Great location and a great price, we will definitely be back again soon, and I will be recommending this accommodation to all my clients.

Thanks again for a lovely stay.

Needed a place to stay whilst attending a local event. One Thornbury was one of the cheapest accommodations in the area. Due to this I was not expecting much. However after staying I can strongly recommend " One Thornbury" .
It is coveniantly located within walking distance of the RNA showgrounds, train stations and the valley restaurants. The rooms were spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, and the breakfast was a gourmet delight!

The hosts have have gone the extra mile to ensure the customer is made welcome without their privacy not being compromised.
Breakfast was stunning, generous and fresh (sublime homemade plum compote).
Tea and coffee available with a wonderful Balinese setting in the garden should you have visitors drop by.
Room clean, comfortable and all the necessities for a short or long stay. Location fantastic, parking uncomplicated, $8 a day its not an issue, you are city center. 24hr gym and supermarket nearby. I would and will recommend to anyone, places like this are hard and rare to find. Well done 10/10

Room Tip: room 3? has the stairwell can be a bit noisy if you are a light sleeper, it is an old house therefor...
