Upon arriving at Bowen Terrace, you find a traditional Queenslander property. The staff are friendly and helpful however, once you have been taken to your accommodation be prepared for disappointment. The room is basic with very little fittings and shelves with which to unpack. Due to the thin walls and creaky floor boards the place is also very noisy, excavations starting at 7am next door did not help achieve a restful sleep. Upon waking we found no hot water to have a shower.
The accommodation is essentially a hostel, although the owners would prefer it to be called a guest house. For the amount we paid to stay in one of their ensuite rooms we could have stayed in the Novotel or Ibis in the CBD, and now feel decidely ripped off, this being one of the more expensive places we stayed in during our three week holiday. I Would not recommend this place to anyone except if they were backpacking and then it would be too expensive for their budget.
