I chose the Hillcrest as it was close to the Mater children's hospital, so it was in a perfect location for us. I had adjoining apartments, one apartment had 1 bedroom with a large living area and kitchen and the other was a one bedroom without a living area. After reading the reviews I asked for a referbished room. Carpets and appliances were new. As for cleanliness it was ok except for the kettle. There was so much brown muck in the kettle that I wasted an entire bottle of vinegar descaling it. The kitchen was fully equiped and this was very handy as we cooked most nights. The rooms were serviced daily, if required, so we were able to get fresh towels when requested. We travelled with another family and their room had a laundry whereas our room did not eventhough it was the same size room. We travelled with children so having access to the laundry in the other room was handy. There was a communal laundry on our floor but if you want a room with a laundry I suggest you request one. There is no free internet but it's available at a cost. Southbank is about a 5 minute walk. The walk along Southbank is lovely and great for kids. There are public pools set up like a beach and different sections with varying depth so it caters for all ages. There are approximately 3 playground areas along the way. I would suggest that you search for the cheapest price if considering the Hillcrest. I paid significantly more than the other family we travelled with. I booked our rooms directly with the hotel and although the rooms were fine I thought it was not value for money. The other family booked through via an airline site and paid almost half the price I paid and they got the better room.
