“Great hospitality”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

My stay at the Fairthorpe Apartments was great. These apartments were close to the Wesley hospital, although I would not recommend walking there if you have problems with walking up hills.
From the moment i checked at the reception area i felt welcomed. The self contained apartment was clean, the bed was comfortable , Close to the city and with views of the river. Public transport is close at hand for easy access to the city. A taxi to Indooroopilly shopping centre cost $15.00.
I will definitely be staying there the next time I visit Brisbane.

We first stayed at the Fairthorpe when a family member was at the Wesley Hospital nearby. We were treated with old fashioned hospitality and felt welcome. The apartment was so close to the hospital, public transport, shops and the city. The rooms were clean, the bed was comfortable, and the views were great. Free undercover parking. We stayed again this time for a holiday.

This is our third stay at Fairthorpe Apartments which we find and ideal place to stay a short distant from the city and away from the very busy area of the CBD. Close by to 2 lage shopping centres. The roms are very comfortable, clean, roomy the ideal apartments with all that is needed for a self contained apartment. Each week ends it's nice to sit on the verandah to watch the canoe raceing on the Brisbane river. The cost per night is very reasonable for those who need good accommodation at a great price.
Nancy the manager of Fairthorpe Apartments is a lovely person and will help in whatever way she can if help is needed. We gave never found any problams. Thank you again Nancy for our enjoyable stay and we shall see tou next time we'tr down.

All the hotels in the CBD were booked out so I found this place by chance while browsing Google Maps slightly upstream from the CBD for under $170 per night! Got a fully self-contained two bedroom unit on the 9th floor with river and city views from the bedroom. Yes, the building is not brand new, but the unit has been renovated and was absolutely fine for my stay. Had all the amenities of the much more expensive places in the CBD. Strolled along the river to the Park Road strip of restaurants in the evening and even walked back to this place from the CBD one night.
While it's outside the CBD, there's a bus stop right in front of the door so you can be there in no time. Will definitely consider staying here again when I'm in Brisbane next time.
