“Best riverfront. Like on a boat.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2012

We stayed in a one bed apartment right on the river. So close it was like being on a boat. Everything on the doorstep - restaurants, ferries, close to city. All amazing and loved it - why stay in a hotel when Goldsborough Apartments are soooo much better. We will make this a regular stay.

Room Tip: Get riverfront

I booked accommodation for my daughter and her family in April 11 for arrival 28 July. I had conf # and letter from the Apartments confirming. Gerry rang my daughter less than 2 days before expected arrival and cancelled the room saying there was no room available. Gerry hung up on us both when we rang separately to ask what was going on??........
He is very rude. I couldn't possibly recommend you book here as 'guaranteed booking' in fact means I'll cancel it if I feel like it!!

Room Tip: Book elsewhere!!

I cannot believe that this place is in business!!! We had an apartment booked, however they sold the apartment that they managered and did not advise us! I cannot believe the rudeness of this place.......Gerry has no idea what he is talking about, as twice I spoke to him, as I got the sence they really did not have a clue what they were talking about! Then rozline hung up on me! Do not ever stay here!!!!!! You will turn up and there will not be a booking for you!

Stayed at the Goldsborough Sept 15-17. Excellent, spacious rooms, great river view, great riverside jogging trail, and excellent friendly service. Highly recommended alternative to a Brisbane hotel, and better value. Trendy restaurants & convenience store 5 min walk, and easy public transport to CBD by bus or boat.

This apartment is in the old Port area of Brisbane which has been trendified and now abounds with restaurants, cafes, markets and lofts. The building is not new and needs fresh carpet and paint. Other than that it is spacious and has truly lovely views and fabulous ventilation. Because the apartment runs from front to back (each one has a river view at the front and a street view at the back) you can open the windows and let the breeze run through which is vital in summer - we didn't use the aircon the whole time, just let the flowthrough do it for us. You can sit on the balcony for breakfast and watch the ferry cat go up and back, various rowers and pleasure craft and joggers - it's a busy place at 7am.

We loved the location, great restaurants are only a short walk away and there are convenience stores everywhere for your groceries. It's trendy, so prices are a little high for food and market fare, but has more character than the centre of Brisbane. The parking was good and came with the tariff.

No complaints here. Good value for money and a good choice if you have business nearby or are visiting friends who cannot put you up, as happened to us! The pool is awesome - it's a true lap pool with 1.4m depth from end to end and is 30m long, and the gym next to it has everything you need and was extremely popular.

Goldsborough Place is a 10 minute drive to the City, so bear this in mind. If you are travelling to see family or friends in Brisbane, or if you're away for work and are driving, it is excellent. If you're relying on public transport you are better off in the City.

The property is around 10 years old and is generally well kept. I enjoyed staying here due to the close proximity of restaurants, bars etc for evenings after work. My apartment was a good size with a large balcony overlooking the Brisbane River. All the usual appliances etc were available, and although I didn't use the pool area it looks rather nice.

There is a convenience store across the road for forgotten extras. Security parking is free. Reception staff were friendly and helpful.
