We had a room it was good enough for an overnight. Excellent Restaurant. Location is not too bad. A 15 min walk to shops. Taxi to and from airport around $26 each way. No shuttle available. Room Tip avoid Room 13 as early departures and late arrivals will interrupt your sleep.

Only had 1 day in Brisbane and it was close to the airport, though there is no shuttle service, you have to take a cab. The room was large and modern. There is a small restaurant which is not open all the time. The staff is friendly and helpful, but not there overnight. I think it is slightly over priced for what you get.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the noisy bar and restaurant. Try to get a view of courtyard instead of apt...

Had to stay overnight recently in Brisbane to catch an international flight out very early the next morning. Our travel agent suggested this motel and we thought we'd give it a go. We usually stay at 5 star accommodation but it was only one night, arriving late and leaving ridiculously early the next day. Because I had read TripAdvisor reviews & noted the rooms tips, I asked for a quiet room. The lady at reception told me it was booked out & the room we had was pretty much it. We carried our suitcase up one flight of stairs ( no elevator) and opened the door to an immaculate room with a double Bed and 2 singles. It was around 7.30pm, and we asked reception to book a table at the in house restaurant as last orders were taken by 8. We arrived to a lovely under cover outdoors restaurant. I had the beef curry which was delicious and my husband had the seafood. Both meals were excellent, we couldn't finish the wine and the waitress let us take it back tour room. Reception had also arranged a taxi for 4.30 am the next morning and when I called for a wake up call, the manager was more than helpful. I would defiantly recommend this motel for an overnight stay. I noticed a lot of reviewers complained about the hours of the restaurant. The motel has mostly business people staying there so weekends are usually quiet. The restaurant follows suit with this traffic and stays open when they are busy and if quiet they close, I understand that. It really to travelers and business clientele. Hence, no elevator as most guests have light luggage. We didn't find carrying our luggage up stairs an issue.
The room cost $170. Remember it sleeps 4, so if there are a few of you it is pretty inexpensive.
Overall, an excellent experience. Would defiantly stay again.

Room Tip: We were in room 21, which is at the top of the stairs. It was very quiet and close to restaurant and...

We had a self contained unit which was large, very clean and well equipped.
It was very close to the TAFE College/Skillstech where I was conducting business.
My wife had nearby access to shopping, numerous restaurants a theatre and the Brisbane river ferry terminals. The racecourse was also nearby. Complementary access to a nearby Gym was
also very handy.

Room Tip: Disabled persons would need to choose a ground floor apartment as I didn't notice any lifts to t...

Let down by the fact we had an upstairs room - no lift - so had to carry all our luggage up the stairs. Receptionist was lethargic, didn't get off her chair to welcome us. Pool was very uninviting, dirty. Restaurant closed on weekend. On the upside, room was beautifully clean, large and inviting, and close to airport.

Room Tip: Book downstairs room, if you have luggage - you have to carry it upstairs. If you want to eat in, b...

Huge rooms, great location and great room service. If getting an apartment room make sure that it does not back onto the restaurant. Noise carries on well into the nights the restaurant is open. Easy access parking in the underground parking but beware of taxis blocking the exit when they pick people up from the reception.

Nice new motel. Studio rooms spacious. Good secure undercover carparking. On the downside, no lifts, no wi-fi in rooms and only two travel adaptors for whole complex. Heated pools not heated, and front spa pool not heated either.
On the upside, good handy location to airport, staff helpful, rooms quiet. Price on a par with other accommodation in the same area. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Get a room on the bottom floor if you don't want to cart your luggage
