“Great stopover hotel”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

Stayed for one night before flying out of Brisbane. Clean, comfortable, friendly saff. Good comfortable bed and a quiet room. Just 5 minutes walk to restaurants - we ate at the Italian restaurant just down the road. Took shuttle to airport next morning. Would stay there again.

This is a good hotel to stay in if you are going on a cruise that leaves from Brisbane, the rooms are very nice and airy, the air conditioning is good.Some rooms have balconies which give a little more room and fresh air. There a small fridge and tea making facilities in the room. You don't here traffic from nearby street.
They don't have a restaurant but down stairs at the front desk the have munchies and drinks in a large fridge that you can buy, or you can go to the Port area; it's about a 10 minute walk; where there are shops and restaurants (including a great Mexican one) and an IGA; also in the street behind there is a large fish shop that sells great fish and chip and other seafood delicacies, but it's quit popular with the locals so you my have to wait for a little while. But it looks like you can phone in an order, so if you get a menu you might want to do it that way.
They also have a shuttle service to the Port wharf if you're catching a cruise ship and there is also a direct taxi phone near the entrance to the hotel. all in all it's a nice place to stay if you're catching a cruise the next day.

Room Tip: It looks like only some of the rooms closer to the front have balconies. there is a balcony next to...

Overnight in Airport Ascot ahead of a cruise. No courtesy van from airport. Cab cost around $25. Rooms on the smaller side, but tidy and modern looking, and suprisingly quiet with the busy road alongside. So all in all quite adequate for a 1 night stay. Grabbed a room service cooked breakfast, and took the courtesy van to the dockside ready for a nice cruise.

Tossed up between a number of airport hotels as I only needed a bed for 8 hours in between flights coming in and out of Brisbane. Ultimately went with the Airport Ascot and was not expecting an awful lot given that it is in an area that is primarily for layovers, but was pleasantly surprised.

The room was spacious, quiet, very clean and comfortable. Arrived and departed whilst reception was closed but there is a security box to collect keys and a drop box to leave them the next day. I was impressed that the hotel rang to see what time I was arriving and departing so they could ensure that I could get into my room. There was a kettle, tea and coffee in the room, but it would have been good if there was a vending machine given that reception was closed (and that were the cold drinks and snacks were sold) but went to the hotel next door and took advantage of their offerings.

Would stay here again if I have a layover and recommend it for this purpose.

FYI: Please be aware that hotels in this area (and there are about 3 blocks of them) are about a $30-$35 taxi ride from the airport. This is not a fault of the hotel and also not why they are not getting an excellent, rather it's just a general note that Brisbane Airport Hotel's are not actually at the airport, within walking distance of it or even a 5-10 minute taxi trip like most airport hotels are.

I had 7 hours to kill and having just stepped off a 14 hour flight from LA all my body could think of was sleep. I found the Airport Ascot 550 on the information board at the baggage area of the airport.
Plus: a published day rate. Clean and inviting rooms, friendly accommodating staff,close to airport.
Cons: needed to take a taxi as they don't offer a shuttle.
I was thrilled to find a hotel that was interested in offering a day rate and everything was great from there on in.
Yes I will stay there again and be happy to do so.

Room Tip: I know they have a pool, I didn't use it so can't rate it and don't know about fitness r...

Location just what we needed for dropping off our motorhome and spending time in the city before flight to NZ the next day. This is just what it says it is and does it very well. Tip: Use the water taxi from almost outside the door to the heart of the city. Taxi arranged by reception was prompt for the airport drop early the next morning. Great Italian restaurant a couple of hundred metres down the road.

From the point of arrival, we were made to feel very welcome, and that nothing was too much trouble. We were tired from a long flight and we were early for booking in, but it was no trouble for management, who handed over the keys with no fuss whatsoever. What a relief to be able to just flop on the bed for a quick nap before heading out again! We booked a deluxe room for our three day stay, and it was more than comfortable, with very up to date furnishings. Lovely bathroom. The deluxe rooms are well worth the little extra because they are located in an area of the complex that is devoid of traffic noise, so that we had three undisturbed nights of good sleep in a very comfortable bed. The rooms also seem to be soundproofed, as there was no noise coming from adjacent rooms. The location suited us very well, as there is a ferry at walking distance that takes you on a very enjoyable ride to the city and back again at the end of the day. When came time to head home, because the motel is located on the north side of the city, we did not have to negotiate the horror drive through the middle of the CBD, so that we arrived at the airport in a calm and collected state of mind! Can highly recommend this motel. Would recommend that for the evening meal, you wander down to one of the adjacent restaurants.
