My wife and I decided to have a short break in Brisbane from the 23/7/13-25/7/13 with our 1 year old daughter and were happy with how easy and convenient to the airport the hotel is. We also enjoyed the fact it is about a 4 minute walk to the railway station and if you had a rental car, the location was Central to just about anywhere in Brisbane.
We were pleasantly surprised at the 1 bedroom apartment when we walked in as we noticed it was quite roomy and well kept. This ended when we arrived in to the bedroom. We wanted a queen bed, but I was completely pissed off (sorry for the language) to find that the bed consisted of 2 single bed, butted up together but with blankets thrown over the top to make it look like a queen bed. I honestly don`t know how hotels think that this is acceptable as you cannot disguise the fact you have a massive crack down the middle of the bed. Add to this the mattresses were so firm, it gave my wife and I terrible sleeps. I wanted to complain there and then but my wife wanted me to keep the peace as it was only 2 nights. Well here is the complaint, it`s just a disgusting arrogance to think people will fall for 2 single beds being a queen bed.
My other complaint is about the showers. They have those bloody water saver shower heads, an absolute scourge that is spreading like a cancer around this country. I don`t want to hear some crap about saving the environment, it`s done to save hotels money, rip us off and make our stay uncomfortable. Simple.
Would we return? Not sure. You see I can live with the shower thing, but the bed thing absolutely NOT! When you`re chasing around a 1 year old all day you need plenty of energy, and unfortunately your beds simply did not give us any quality sleep.
Everything else was ok, the cot was good, location was good, the style and size of the apartment was good, but something MUST be done about those beds and get rid of those stupid, asthmatic shower heads.
