We had never been to Brisbane before so I was a bit worried that the location of this motel was not going to be convenient for getting in to the city. In fact it is very well situated with only a short walk to the end of the road where there is a spectacular view of the Brisbane skyline. There are steps down to the riverside and then a most enjoyable walk along the river to the Goodwill footbridge which leads across to the city. Brisbane was very pretty when we were there as the jacaranda trees were in full bloom .
We received a warm welcome from Moira who runs this very reasonably priced motel with her husband Les. Although the décor of the apartment was a little bit dark it was very spacious. There was a kitchenette with all the usual kitchen appliances including an oven. We did not experience any noise from the road, partly because the motel is set back from the road and perhaps also because we stayed over a weekend.
The motel has a communal laundry and there is an IGA express supermarket a very short distance away which, besides the usual things, sells hot pies and fresh bread.
