EDWARD LODGE – Room 2
Purpose of stay: Business
Length of stay: 4 nights
In Brief: clean, quiet and more than adequate for a place to sleep, good location. The host Robyn was very warm and friendly and I appreciated her staying up to greet me, as I had arrived late at night.
Would stay here again
Set in the slightly bohemian suburb of New Farm Edward Lodge proved more than adequate for my needs. There is a shopping centre about 5mins walk from Edward Lodge with a large Coles supermarket, a few restaurant/café places and it’s also very close to the city ferry cat if you want to get into the CBD of Brisbane or taxi will cost about $30aud. Buses run frequently up and down Brunswick St making getting to the small bars, restaurants etc, pretty easy. If you have hired a car the street parking outside Edward Lodge is ok.
You enter through a large wooden gate into the garden/courtyard area with a timber footpath leading to the front door which is locked at night for safety reasons. Your room key also has a key that unlocks this door. The house is a Queenslander with timber floorboards and the accommodation spreads over 3 floors.
Know if you’re thinking “an English type of B&B”, then you maybe a little disappointed. It’s more a flashpacker or guesthouse type place without the noise and rowdiness. This is not a criticism however, just that if you expect to be greeted each morning by your host and shown to a table and have fresh toast and coffee made for you… well it’s more a DIY affair. Infact I admit to looking at the kitchen and the plastic containers of cereal and thinking “I might just grab a coffee and something to eat at a local café”.
My room had a Queen and single bed, aircon, tv (local stations) a small rack to hang clothes on and a bathroom with toilet and shower. Everything was clean and my room was even serviced on the second day (which I wasn’t expecting). The walls are thick and I can honestly say that it was very quiet. You will hear people walking on the floorboards but that’s not an issue. Safety is good with a big lock on the front door and a solid lock on my room door. All in all I would stay here again no problem at all.
