“Watch out for extra charges”
Reviewed 25 May 2012

Be aware that the whole building houses only 2 bedroom apartments so if you book a 1 bedroom you still get a 2 and will be hit with an extra cleaning charge if you use the second bedroom.
We spent over $3,000 here on a recent stay and were hit with this extra fee for cleaning upon check out because we had used the bed in the apartment that THEY chose to put us in............................!!
This charge is not written or noted anywhere, it is not on their website and they don't tell you this when you check in so be careful!!

Because of this 'extra' charge we won't stay here again.

Annette M, Manager at Kirribilli Apartments, responded to this review, 27 May 2012
We only have 2 bedroom apartments and not all have locked doors to the second bedroom as they are all privately owned. We expect guests to use only the one bedroom if they have only booked a one bedroom. At no time do we tell the guest that the second bedroom can be used if a one bedroom booking has been made.. If it is used at all, we charge for only the nights that it is used. Owners have a higher cleaning charge if the second bedroom is used.
I might add that this has occurred only twice in the 14 months that I have been the onsite manager at this complex.

My friend and I stayed in this apartment for 5 days in late October 2011. We came to attend conference in Brisbane. The agreed rate for one-bed room standard apartment was AU160 per night. But we were given a two bedroom apartment. I really like this apartment because even though it is not near to CBD, public transportation is very easy. The bus stop is situated right in front of the apartment and the city cat (ferry) stop is about 5 minutes walking distance.

The view of the apartment is great. The kitchen is fully equipped, so we did not go hungry throughout our whole stay in Brisbane. I really like cooking there and it really save us a lot of money compared to when eating outside food. The apartment is also near to China Town (by bus).

We arrived in Brisbane at night and the taxi driver had some difficulty locating the apartment. So when you go there make sure you bring the apartment address with you. There was also no 24 hours reception. The management will give you a code number (by e-mail) so that you can open the main apartment door and get the room key. And yes, the apartment reception staffs are very friendly and helpful.

I recommend this apartment especially for those who like to cook their own food during their stay and does not like to bring dirty clothes back home after holiday. The washing machine really comes useful. If i come to Brisbane i will not hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: I suppose if you only use the room for sleeping, the room location does not really matter.

I had an apartment on the corner on the 5th floor. It was a clean, spacious 2 bedroom/2 bath with a laundry. There was soap and towels, but just basic ones. The deck was great for watching the river go by, the river walk is right outside as is the river taxi to the city. If you visit, walk towards the park nearby and across it is the Powerhouse, a wonderful entertainment venue with outside tables overlooking the river and a decent restaurant. There are other restaurants and shops on that side of the park and north of it. Not much else nearby.

Check-in was easy and quick. Note check out is 10am. I had to work but the receptionist let me leave my bags there until the afternoon. This isn't a hotel in the sense of not having 24 hours reception and no food services, etc. It is more a home away from home.

Great choice if you want to be in a very nice neighborhood away from the CBD but with easy access to it.

The position, security are car parking are great. As each apartment is apparently owned by different people it is a lucky dip as to the furniture you will get. Our two bedroom apartment was not clean at 2pm. The lock on the door to patio area did not work so had to use bolts at bottom of door. Apparently this place is often full and you have to take what you are given. At $220 per night it is a lot more expensive than the Park Regis in Brisbane CBD.

Room Tip: Only a few rooms have view of Story Bridge as pictured on their website.

Stayed for One Night while attending a function nearby. The Apartments were in a fantastic location with a short walk to the rivercat to take you anywhere you please on the river. Apartments had good ammenities were comfortable and clean. The pool area and spa were lacking gardens (this looks like they are being re-done at the moment) but they were clean etc. Great views from the balcony to the Brisbane River. The only negative would be lack of directional/information signage especially in the basement carpark. There was no signage that could be seen on driving in to point you in the direction of the lifts of the rubbish bins. The lifts were hidden behind a brick wall that had no signs on it???

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony overlooking the River.

This really is a lovely place to kick back and relax if you are staying in Brisbane for a few days. The rooms are large and spacious, living area comfortable and the staff extremely helpful with any query, or suggestive idea's on things to do.. The balcony is always a way to start or end the day. Most of the staff at my work stay here, and say the same. Public Transport is easily available to get anywhere you need to go.

Abosolute recommendation
