“Gorgeous rooms and location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

One bedroom apt with everything I could think to need to be self sufficient. Excellent service from staff from booking to departure. The location with the ferry just downstairs was incredibly handy - was able to see the ferry coming from the balcony and then race down to still catch it from the 8th floor. North side views of city and river were incredible, and being so high the Bridge noises were minimal even at peak hour. Best bed I have slept in for years and a nice tub for a decent soak. I was there on a 3night special which meant no daily cleaning, but instructions on where to deposit trash etc made this no problem at all. Food options in-house and downstairs were available but not needed when all of Kangaroo Point at fingertips, plus up & downstream City, Southbank, Bulimba, New Farm etc to be had. Loved the stay here and no hesitations in returning or recommending Dockside @ Kangaroo Point.

This was the 3rd time we have stayed at Dockside and we were happy to return to stay. We had driven through the night from Rockhampton and were eager to be able to check in. Staff were very oblidging and telephoned us when our room was ready (approx 10.30am) Our room was very clean and had everything you need for a pleasant comfortable stay. From our balcony we had a great view of the river including the Dockside wharf - great for enjoying cheese and a few wines. Free car parking is a bonus as well as a bottle shop, grocery store, hairdresser and restaurants close by. The 3 times we have stayed we were able to get a good room rate, but unfortunately this is not always the case so we stay elsewhere. Will continue to stay on the occasions that we are able to secure a great room rate.

Good location, lovely view, however very outdated apartment.
Worst bathroom lighting/shower pressure. I would suggest to request a room that has been renovated( if at all possible??)..also the apartment had a very yucky smell similar to moth balls. Probably won't stay here again as it is not good value for money.

Room Tip: Request a higher floor/new room

A little difficult to find by car. Good free parking. Upgraded to 2 bedroom apartment. Good views of
river. Quiet location. Adequately equipped. Breakfast charges were high so we got supplies from down the road and cooked our own. Great watching commuters going to work via the ferries.
Would liked to have stayed longer to be more familiar with the area. Good coffee shop, an Asian restaurant, a convenience store and hairdresser over the cul-de-sac. You needed a car. Ferry was nearby. Would recommend if you knew the area better.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view.

I've stayed at this hotel many times over the last 6 or so years. So conveniently located close to the city centre, which is easily accessible by the ferry that you can catch about 100 metres from the entrance of the hotel! The hotel is in a 'cul-de-sac' of sorts, with a couple of other apartment buildings, a few nice restaurants and a little convenience store. It's like having your own little village with everything right there for you.
The apartments (we usually stay in the 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom ones) are very clean and quite spacious - very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped. The large balcony usually has great views of the Brisbane River. We can see when the ferry is approaching from the balcony and with enough time, make our way downstairs to catch it. The beds at this place are super comfy, I always have a really good night's sleep (the pillows are especially comfortable).
I found the staff to be pretty good, fairly helpful.
Overall if you want a clean, quiet hotel in a great location, Dockside is a good choice!
