Reviewed March 24, 2013

Everything you could need. Location, Good service, Everything Clean and working. Sure things aren't flash like 5* but you aren't paying those prices either. Some units we stayed in other times are getting a little tired but we would recommend it to all.

We shared a 2bedroom family apartment on the ground floor with my sister and her daughter for several nights. We loved the location which gave easy free access to Brisbane City via the ferry just up the road. Loved the pool and sauna. The apartment had a lovely kitchen, dining and lounge that we put to full use entertaining long lost friends. New Farm is a great location with a beautiful river walk to the playground and recreation of New Farm Park, loads of restaurants and cafe's of high quality including the great little cafe across the road which we visited daily for coffee's and snacks.

This was my 3rd stay at Kirribilli and the first for my husband. We booked a Superior One Bed Apartment & were on the 6th floor with fabulous views of the river,city,Storey Bridge & New Farm. He was dutifully impressed & I felt like I had 'come home'. The on-site managers are delightful & always happy to offer advice. The units have everything one needs for a short or long stay. We took advantage of the free Cityhopper ferry service from the Sydney Street Wharf only 100 metres away. The trip takes around 40 minutes as it stops at most wharves on route to the city, but it's a delightful trip & we always found the ferry masters (& security personnel) very welcoming...we also saved a lot of money in the process!There is a bus stop directly out the front as well as an excellent coffee shop called 'Double Shot'. For price, facilities and location Kirribilli Apartments gets my vote every time.

Room Tip: Go for Superior rooms as the views will be better. Also note that all units are double, so don't...

Kirribilli Apartments is stragicaly located near Sydney Street Terminal, where we could gain access to the Brisbane CityHopper - a free ferry service that ran up & down Brisbane river stopping at North Quay, South Bank 3, Maritime Museum, Thornton Street, Eagle Street Pier, Holman Street, Dockside and Sydney Street terminals - which is a great way to explore the city. It is about 5 minutes stroll along Brisbane river from Kirribilli Apartments to Sydney Street terminal. The apartment has a great view of Brisbane river from its balcony. We love the moments of sitting at the balcony, enjoying the view - with a cup of coffee. The apartment is spacious, tidy & with it fully equipped kitchens - made our stay comfortable, & got us going on our own. The security is good with secured access to the underground car park & to the floors. & last but not least, the hosts at the apartment were very helpful & friendly during our stay.

So sorry to hear about this guest's disappointing stay at Kirribilli. We apologise for the paintwork and have contacted the owner, of that particular apartment, to get it rectified. I wish we had been approached re. the soft bed....liked by some, disliked by others. I would definitely have looked at placing the guest in another apartment for their one night stay if I had only known.

To be fair when writing reviews, I usually start with 100 points and work backwards, taking points off for cleanliness, bad service, poor facilities etc. On that basis the Kirribilli ended up with about 105 I think! We booked a superior 2 bedroom apartment and all we could say when we got to the room was "WOW".

I booked the Kirribilli when we were in town to see "A Chorus Line", George Michael also in town that night! We paid $240 a night through booking.com.

We had apartment 604 which had an unbelievable view of the Brisbane River, Kangaroo Point, parts of the CBD and all of Story Bridge. 2 balconies, full kitchen including dishwasher, en suite to main bedroom, huge living space, beautiful pool and spa n complex (we used both!), very clean BBQ area, great location on the river 2 mins walk from the CityCat stop (10 mins to city 20 to Southbank), couple of minutes drive to Merthyr Village shopping centre, secure underground car parking with an allocated space, very secure building, and fast competent service. Brilliant variety of crockery cutlery bakeware and glassware provided (good quality too!) including things like scissors and a can opener which are easily forgotten.

If there was anything to pick at the furniture is a tad dated and the carpet a couple of old stains - but you'll be too busy looking at the view to notice!!

Our only complaint was that we were only here for one night. We can't wait to return!!

Room Tip: Rooms face different directions but all face the river - 4 units per floor, the higher number the be...

This apartment had great views, and was super convenient to get to the downtown area. Only a few hundred meters from the CityCat, the city transportation ferry system, and you were at South Bank in less than 20 minutes on a fun boat ride. The apartment had a full kitchen, a master bedroom with walk-in closet, and bath room ensuite. There was a washer and dryer. The only complaint we had was that the dryer was very loud to run, and it made you want to shut the door to the bathroom/utility room it was located in, but the signage said if you shut the door it would set off the fire alarm. I did actually shut the door, and luckily no alarm ever went off.

This is a great place if you want convenient access to the city, yet would like to get away from the city at night for a comfortable home away from home experience. This place is great for families, and couples. There is a tennis court, pool, and spa. The pool is not heated, and the spa was only heated to about 38.5 degrees. For winter time, it wasn't hot enough for me and the kids, but we went in it anyway, and had a nice time.

The grounds are well kept, the staff is very polite and helpful, and the grocery store is about a 15 min walk or 7 min bus ride. And it every apartment includes a free garaged car park spot in the basement. Serviced once a week. Noise from other apartments was minimal, despite our apartment feeling a bit echoing.

All around good place to stay, and was enjoyable.

Room Tip: Choose a deluxe room for the best views and verandas. the corner rooms are slightly smaller, but the...
