Fantastic Views

We were lucky enough to get a great deal ($211 in a furbished 2bm apt). We were on the 11th floor with fantastic views of the river. Spacious enough and great sized balcony. Cleaners need to lift their game in the bathroom. Kettle was rusty. Minor issues.I could easily live in Kangaroo Point!!. My daughter had a 1bm apt. on the 13th floor. Supposed to be refurbished, but compared to our room theirs was definitely not refurbished. Their view was not as good as ours. They were placed back from the river, but still a nice view. One tip: 13th floor does not have shade on the small balcony as ot is the top level (very hot)

A little dated - needs a renovation

The location is convenient and the amenities are good. If you are arriving late or leaving early the experience is a little harrowing. There is no staff available as the Reception leaves in the evening does not come in till 7am. We had booked (and paid) for three occupants yet the sleeping arrangement, linen and towels were only sufficient for two people. As there was no one on site when we arrived at 10 pm and as were catching an early flight and were leaving at 6 am we were on our own. We had to take some linen from the bed in the main room and utilize it for the sofa bed and use the hand towel after taking a shower. Not exactly what we were expecting!

Convenient location but facilities lacking

While the location is ideal for people that need to be in the downtown area, the units are a little dated and are in need of a renovation. We arrived after hours and left early and therefore did not meet any staff at all except for a couple of telephone conversations about amenities with the off location call centre who could not solve our issues. We had booked for three adults but found supplies only for two ... A little disappointing ... There were linens for two, towels for two and only a breakfast voucher for one which was regardless not available till after we left for the airport for our flights.

Central Docklands

Staff very helpful. Some parts of the rooms could have done with an upgrade however the beds were very comfortable and the facilities good. Great views to Brisbane River and the location to the free ferry excellent. Loved the size of the balcony. Am planning another trip to Brisbane and will definitely stay there again.

For the price and location great

Not good. If it had not been for staff we would have gone somewhere else. Location great price Good options for public transport road or river. Easy to get to Southbank or city. However you could have stayed in any of the other hotels and had the same access to amenities
