“We were very pleased with our two night stay in this motel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2011

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.

Not sure about the last review. We had a great time, slept like a baby after some recommended Riverlife adventures, pretty close too. The hosts here were the best an we will be back. :)

The worst motel I have stayed at so far. We found the managers of this motel irate and incredibly rude. We stayed for a few days and the manager screamed like a lunatic at my wife on two occasions when we wanted some service for the laundry upsetting her and ruining our evening. I think this woman has some serious issues so I would strongly advise anyone to stay well away, that is unless you like Fawlty Towers.
Also the room wasn't serviced each day and it was not clean with damp coming through the kitchen ceiling. They should pay you to stay here..

My daughter and her boyfriend stayed here twice. They went back the second time because of the location and the helpful and friendly owners. Easy to deal with and quick to respond to any questions by email. First experience with Brisbane and they couldn't have been happier.

This motel is in a location handy to the river and city centre, is reasonably priced and the rooms are large and well equipped. However, we stayed on a Saturday night and the road noise was terrible right through the night - there are busy roads on both sides of the motel. Our other complaint is that the room had a very hard bed and was not comfortable.

A great place to stay. Centrally located in lovely area. Rooms are older style making them extremely spacious. Everything was spotless. Owners very obliging and helpful. Highly recommend.

We have used the Paramount for two, weekly trips to Brisbane in the last eight months,
& will use it again next trip.
We selected it for the location in our price range, and was very pleased with the facilities,
cleanliness, & friendly service of the owners Les & Moira.
The location is on a busy road,
but rooms are set back enough that noise was not a problem.
A good convenience shop, & bus stop are very close.
The Gabba & a Coles supermarket are a short walk away.
Southbank, river ferries, & city are a 20 min walk, past Kangaroo Point cliffs,
& a lovely walk along the Brisbane river.
