“Great location, good value, outstanding customer service.”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Great location and very good value for the money. Rooms are very clean and comfortable, and you get a lot for your money: onsite restaurant, free wifi, kitchenette, balcony, pool, laundry facilities (basement), garage parking, and great staff. Jenny at the front desk was an immense help, acting as our personal concierge for basically everything we needed. Easy access from the motorways and airport if you have a car. Within very short walking distance to the Mowbray Park ferry terminal, a grocery store, bottle shop, ATM, post office, the Gabba, and several neighborhood restaurants. Great running routes – head less than a mile down Baines/Walmsley Streets to the riverfront, down the steps at Scouts Point, then head along the river in either direction on the pedestrian/cycling footpath. Don’t forget to bring your camera on the run, as the views of Brisbane are insanely beautiful on a clear morning.

My daughter and I stayed at the Wellington last weekend (21 Feb to 25 Feb) we found the rooms to be excellent, the food delicious, the staff so friendly and accommodating and the location was superb. We couldn't have asked for more, yet I'm sure if we had, it would not have been any trouble for the staff or Management to have provided it for us.

I highly recommend the Wellington Apartment Hotel to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Brisbane. They have secure parking with lift access but the ferry (and bus service) is walking distance too, so you don't need a car.

I was in Brisbane on business as well as visiting family and The Wellington Apartment Hotel was perfect for both occasions. Highly recommended!

A large room with all the facilities for self catering and a washing machine "downstairs". Balcony overlooked the garden with views of the magical Brisbane skyline. Easy access to the river cat but good road links too and free garage parking. Reception was a mine of helpful information and very friendly. Very easy to book a taxi and it arrived very promptly

Room Tip: We always try to aim high and request a view if possible

We arrived at the Wellington Apartment Hotel tired, frazzled and four hours late because Qantas had completely messed up our flights to Brisbane. However, the lady on the reception desk was just wonderful and in no time we had checked in, found a bottle of very good-value wine in the mini-bar and were sitting on the verandah watching the sun go down and feeling much better.

This apartment hotel is in a great location as it’s in walking distance of buses and the City Cat. However, it’s on a busy road so make sure you request a room at the back - here you look out over old Queensland style houses with the modern buildings of the Brisbane CBD on the skyline. It makes a nice contrast. The staff are very nice, especially the receptionists.

The restaurant had lovely food but isn’t open for meals (except breakfast) at weekends. As our apartment had a small kitchenette and there was an IGA store close by this didn’t present any problems. There were restaurants close by for dinner or lunch as well. We visited during the Brisbane Festival, which culminated in the Riverfire fireworks display which we thoroughly enjoyed from the balcony of our room.

Room Tip: Make sure you choose a room at the back of the hotel, not on the busy road at the front.

My friend and I came half-way around the world to visit Brisbane and were quite satisfied with our stay here. The staff at the front desk were very helpful in helping us know how to navigate all the public transportation. I especially enjoyed the city cat river taxi system. We used it several times in the 3 days we were there. We did have to walk a fair distance, however, to catch the bus. This hotel was not very close to downtown but a great location near to some great restaurants and across the street from a grocery and a liquor store. On our last day, we took a dip in the outdoor pool. Being a tad on the short side, I found it to be too deep for just splashing around and too small to get any real swimming done. However, it was clean and warm enough to use. For the money, I felt this was a good value.

We had a great stay at the Wellington Apartment Hotel over the Christmas week, which is offpeak for them, as they are a corporate hotel.
The location was so central - turn right out of Wellington Road to go across the Story Bridge and either into the city or to the northern suburbs, or right to go to Bulimba, etc.
A great bar and bistro across the road at the Shaftston Hotel, a Cellarbrations bottle store and an excellent IGA supermarket - all within a few minutes walk of the Wellington Apartment Hotel.
Paul and Maria are great, nothing is too much trouble for them and they are so welcoming.
The room we stayed in was a great size with cooking facilities and a full sized fridge-freezer with well stocked mini bar. We were at the rear of the property with views over Brisbane city, which were spectacular at night with all of the lights.
Would happily recommend the Wellington Apartment Hotel to anyone and we will stay again ourselves next time we're in Brisbane.
Thanks Paul and Maria for such a wonderful stay!

Room Tip: The rooms at the rear of the property are probably the best, as they are away from the road and the...

I stayed at the Wellington Apartment Hotel on business for a night back in October.
The location is a bit out of the way if you're planning to spend time in the city. Taxi's around Brisbane are cheap if you don't have a car (and reception is happy to call them for you), so the location isn't too bad. Great location if you're visiting Princess Alexandra Hospital though!

The staff are great and there are only a few rooms, so the vibe is friendly. I caused a bit of confusion by ordering a take away pizza instead of the expensive room service, but no one seemed too upset... I can't comment on the bar or the hotel restaurant, but I can confirm that Pizza Capers happily delivers ;)

The rooms are big with kitchenettes, comfy beds, TV, complimentary Wi-Fi (get password from reception) and mini bar. The bathroom is clean with an in-bath shower. Strangely the bath tap doesn't work... maybe a water saving tactic to turn guests off using the tub?

I will definitely stay again. Very practical hotel for work trips.
