The rooms were very dated and dirty, looked like they had not been cleaned for a month. Showers were moldy and not very nice. The apartments were supposed to be 3&1/2 star. The rating may need to be reassessed

Booked online. Room looked nothing like the photo on internet. 2 bedrrom apartment with seating at tabe (in corridor) only for 2. Unbearable "plumbing smell". Very very small and dark.
We were made to pay for 4 night stay at check in (before seeing the room). Never never again!

I stayed at Taringa Gardens for most of the month of September working nearby. The managers were great. The Deluxe 2 bedroom was not available when I arrived, so they provided a regular 2 bedroom for 3 nights until the other unit was available. Both units were great - true the carpet was a bit worn, but the units were clean and well furnished. Grounds were beautifuk and the pool was lovely.

Our 1 bedroom apt on the second floor had stained carpets, dirty kitchen utensils, and the noise from the highway made this place an alternative only if you are on a tight budget. The second night, I had to chase a cockroach that had crawled under the bed for about ten minutes.
Tiny bathroom.
Free covered parking was convenient.
The grounds and the pool are nice and well maintained, so the owners need to put some TLC to the rooms, and then it can be rated as a 3 or even a 3 1/2 star property.

  • Liked — the garden and pool area
  • Disliked — dirty room

Clean!!

My room was very clean, it was serviced every other day, although the bed is made up only once a week.

I stayed in a one bedroom apartment, the bedroom is nice - ensuite, with a large walk in wardrobe. The lounge/kitchen is small but enough for two people. The apartment also has its own washing maching and dryer too.

A couple of points to note, some bedrooms over look a busy main road, but the rooms do have double glazing so the noise isn't a problem. Also one or two dont have much of a view from the balcony as they are around the side of the complex.

I'd would stay there again though.
