I arrived after reception had closed but they have a system in place to collect keys out of hours. Didn't like the first apartment so the very helpful girl on reception changed it for a much better location and perfect vantage point to watch the activity on the river.
We spent some evenings watching the amazing free firework display and had the best view in the city!
5 minutes walk to Southbank Parklands with a host of cafes and restaurants plus the man made beach. We had a car but left it parked in the secure underground car park for several days and just walked across the Goodwill Bridge into Brisbane itself.
The apartment (610) had a fully equiped kitchen, separate bedroom, air con that actually worked and windows that you could open!
Good choice of TV channels and an excellent living area with full patio doors that opened out on to the balcony. Perfect place for breakfast or afternoon tea while watching the boats on the river! There is a Coles supermarket about 5 mins drive away and plenty of restaurants near the Gabba plus a cinema just a few minutes walk away at Southbank.
For those looking to travel to the Gold Coast, the motorway is less than a minute from the apartments and we could get to Surfers in around 45 minutes.
Be careful when you are looking for the building as Vulture Street is one way and I almost drove past the first time. Look for signs for the hospital and you'll be fine!
We stayed here for 10 nights and would certainly stay here again given the chance!
