Accommodation near the Brisbane Entertainment Centre ?

So, my mother, girlfriend, sister (+10 month old baby) and a babysitter had a house booked for three nights near the entertainment centre to watch the Pink concert next weekend (19th) but have just had a call cancelling their reservation on the house....

This has left them in a very bad situation as finding accom' suitable for a young baby, with very short notice is proving very difficult without spending silly amounts of money.

Does anyone here happen to know of somewhere relatively close to the BEC that the girls could book at such late notice that will not cost them an arm and both legs ? (dates required - 17th, 18th + 19th)

Thanks in advance..... :).

How much is an arm and a leg?

Just google "Boondall Accommodation" there's loads of stuff there but not a lot that is really close.

Thanks for your reply able58, you have hit the nail on the head.

We have already looked at wotif.com and found most of the accommodation nearby is already booked and my Lil' Sister doesn't want to be too far from her baby boy.... :(.

Sadly not a great deal of choice around that area for you. Will you be driving to the concert? If so you could look at something around the Aspley / Chermside area, that is still within a close(ish) distance from the Entertainment Centre.

Thanks for your reply Maverick, much appreciated.

The girls ended up booking M on Mary, it doesn't look very fancy and the reviews here on TA are not great but it was within their budget and had available rooms. I'm sure they will be okay, it's just a bed for a couple of nights after all.
