Our two night stay was very relaxing at the Manor Apartments. They are in a great central location with access to discounted parking. If you don't have a car the public transport is readily accessible but central Brisbane is within a three minute walk. Breakfast is good, in a breakfast room like many European hotels. Nice selection and a friendly Irish girl to serve you. We had an early flight and asked for a breakfast tray. We were told this was fine but when we went to get it we were told they don't usually do this and appeared not pleased. All we wanted was some cereal and yoghurt so if it isn't common practice I think it's worth considering to make it standard practice as guests have already paid for breakfast in advance.

For those seeking something other than a typical hotel, the Manor Apartment Hotel is an excellent option. Located next to the Post Office and a very short walk from train station. Rooms are very cozy and well equipped for apartment style lodging. Very clean; friendly staff. Breakfast minimal, but very adequate. An excellent location for Brisbane CBD. I would stay again

Dear Human44
Thank you for your review, we are very pleased you enjoyed your 1 week stay.
The changes in the shower water temperature was due to a collapsed tap washer and simply repaired. Our water temperatures are generally quite stable.

Good stuff first:
Excellent central location
Nice continental buffet breakfast
No free wi fi, but there is a terminal in the breakfast room to which Guests have access.
Nice shower
Less good:
We took a 1 bedroom apartment which would cope with 1 person with luggage or two people without, in my opinion. A bit of a squeeze.
Safe did not work, in case of problems dial 9 . HUH! or fill out form. Form filled out at 7:50 pm.
Enquired at desk at 10:00 to be told 'Oh yes I was just thinking of doing something about that'
Glaciers move faster.
We chose an apartment because, 3 weeks into our trip , we needed to do some laundry.
The washing machine did not take powder and despite efforts from the staff, it never washed properly. I am sure it did before the old King died, which is when it seems to have been bought.
It being an apartment, be aware that on weekends you are on your own.
Good location though, they just need to sharpen their act up and spend a bit of money.

Room Tip: Pcik the biggest apartment you can afford

I stayed here for a week on business. The location is perfect, and the building has plenty of charm. the pricing is great value for the size of the suites, with internet and breakfast included.

My biggest problem was with the plumbing, which cannot hold a constant temperature in the shower. This is not very comfortable in the morning. Room ventilation was also old fashioned, and not in a good way. I could smell stale smoke, especially when coming back at the days' end.

Breakfast was good for an included free meal. Wi fi was reliable and my suite was well cleaned.

Manor Apartments is a spot easily missed as it blends into a lovely old building. Reception and arrival was quick and friendly. Our apartment - really was only a hotel room and a bit pokey. Well decorated and cosy. there was a strange smell of car fumes in the room even with the windows closed. Perhaps another room would have allowed me to give a better rating.
Best thing was the continental breakfast - fresh and lovely and the staff were very obliging. Location is great if arriving by the train - just across a park. Would stay again - in a different room

Room Tip: just note that the studio - is only a small hotel room. Not what I know to be a studio in other hote...

We stayed here for a two night stay.

The location is excellent. The apartment hotel is located at the top of the mall, close to the Pier, next door to a supermarket, and 150 metre from the train station.

The price was very reasonable, and breakfast is included. The breakfast is basic, but plentiful. There was four types of canned fruit, five types of cereal, hot eggs, yoghurt, toast and jams, cheese and ham, coffee, tea and three types of juice.

Check in was simple and easy. We had a two bedroom apartment, which was very very large. The bedrooms were a large size, and the living area was massive with lounge, dining and kitchen areas. Plenty of room. Cable flat screen TV in the lounge and in the main bedroom.

The furnishings were of good standard, but something's were a little dated. The cupboards were 80's, the coffee table edges were chipped, the showers were old style with two taps. This did not impact our stay, and given the price, was more than acceptable.

The dishes in the cupboard were not clean, so we simply put everything through the dishwasher.

Wifi was good and free. We stayed on a high floor, facing the road. This was a nice view and we had absolutely no issues with noise or sound.

So overall, a great location, big apartments, a little dated, and very reasonable priced. We would definitely stay here again.

The Manor Apartments are ideally situated in the heart of Brisbane with first class accommodation and facilities. The rooms are spacious and everything that will make your stay perfect. The continental breakfast provided is adequate. The staff are extremely attentive and respond to all enquiries and requirements . For walking and exploring Brisbane is a fantastic city and we rate it very highly for its accessibilty, genuine warmth of the people and buzz of the city. The South Bank walks, Museum, Botanical Gardens, Roma Street Gardens, river cruise dinner and the useful 3 day Translink visitor go card which can be used for all transport means to see th city and surrounding areas . Very secure premises with safe deposit boxes. Free Wi -fi. Manor apartments are highly recommended.
