“Do not change a thing!”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

Anne does more than run a B&B. She creates memories, and I mean good memories of Brisbane. She should get some honor from the local Chamber of Commerce. We will go out of our way to come back to Brisbane because of Cream Gables. Now to the useful stuff in a review. There is an IGA grocery located just around the corner open to about 11:00 PM. Very useful. There are a world of good restaurants a short walk away. This location seems right in the heart of downtown, yet it is completely isolated from the noise - what king of magic was required to do that? Our room had a private garden patio just outside the sliding door. We ate breakfast wtih the Pomms from Perth (see other review) and Anne was indeed the perfect hostess taking care of each individual need and doing a splendid job with the food preparation. The internet service is robust and reliable - a critical need for my business. Anne, thanks for the memories. You can count on us as regulars when we return to Australia on a more frequent basis. Please do not change anything.

Anne is the perfect hostess for travellers, so knowledgable about the area and beyond. We felt at home as soon as we met. The room was spacious, spotless and beautifully presented. The tea/coffee facilities were excellent, bottomless cookie jar, fridge access etc.The gradens were just delightful, and breakfast was up on a balcony overlooking the garden.Breakfast was brilliant, well laid out easy to understand and explained by Anne if unsure, again, a perfect hostess. We had a choice of cooked breakfast, nothing was too much trouble, even my train wreck style of eggs and HP sauce!
The location was just great for us, we walked to the City via the riverside the views were brilliant on the way. There are plenty of bars and resaraunts just around the corner too.
Thank you Anne for the great maps and tips for our continued journey, just the ticket.and in case you have not worked it out, this is Janet and Pete the Pomms from Perth

We have just spent 3 nights with Anne Menken at her B&B and can highly recommend it to anyone. Anne is such a barrel of laughs & very hospitable, her accommodation is very clean & comfortable & in the middle of some wonderful restaurants & bars. The sights around the area are beautiful & it is situated very close to the city with all the shopping that you need as well as transport…Anne is also a mean Karaoke singer.

This lovely B&B is very comfortable and attractive, and located within walking distance of a good selection of restaurants. As others have mentioned, breakfast each morning was WONDERFUL. I would not hesitate to recommend Cream Gables to any visiting Brisbane.

I stayed with Anne on arrival for first time in Brisbane and she made everything run smoothly for me. My room was clean and tidy and breakfast was great every morning for my first 7 days in Oz.
I went travelling for a few months and it was the perfect location for my final night stay before going to the airport to leave.
The location for me was perfect, close to airport (20 mins in cab) and only a 5 minute walk to to CBD and other attractions, close to loads of eaterys and bars.
Anne is a star and very knowledgable about all things Oz!!

we stayed in april one night before and one night after our trip to cairns...Anne was willing to look after a case for us for 14 days, as we had too much luggage for the camper van... Anne was friendly and helpful along with interesting and a bit crazy....we loved the breakfast chats, the food, the rooms and the lounge and outside areas..on Annes advice we ate at the Himalayan another must in brisbane just 5 mins walk from cream gables..it is really a great place to stay and close to all amenities ..
