“Very good again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013

This is our second stay at Inn on the Park, and as with the previous time it was very good. The location is superb with access to buses, rail and city cat ferry. Shopping and restaurants are 10 minutes away. The accommodation is good with everything that is needed for a restful stay.The staff are helpful; truly, a home away from home.

Recently stayed 5 nights due to the 'in on the park' close proximity to the Wesley Hospital. One bedroom apartment well appointed with fully equipped kitchen, large fridge and the standard small appliances. However maintenance poor, many of the lamps in our room did not work, the TV in the bedroom did not work, there was a drain problem which resulted in our apartment smelling bad for a number of days. Shower was over the bath so this would be an issue for older persons or those with restricted movement, the screen did not move so it was logistically challenging to get the shower on, you basically had to be stood in the bath to reach the taps. Washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets were supplied, but no washing powder for the laundry so if you are planning a long stay the pack your own. Free underground parking a plus. Location to Toowong village and Milton good, I walked every where. Bus and ferry access only a few minutes walk from the apartment.

My colleague and I are staying here for work. We booked a two bedroom two bathroom apartment. He has the master which is fine. I have the second bedroom which has two very narrow single beds, a bedside table from the $2 shop and a bedside lamp which did not work. When I provided "robust" feedback I was assured that the handyman would go up and fix it and sort the bed problem. When I came back that night, nothing (oh, he has taken the bulb from the bedlamp away).

Don't waste your time.

Firstly, I need to premise this by highlighting that I stayed in these apartments for 3 months, due to work in Brisbane, and was part of a large group that needed to do so.

When you stay in any hotel that long, things that you would likely not even notice over a weekend begin to grate immensely 6 weeks in...

The room was lovely, and mine had just been renovated. However, I had issues with electrical failures, numerous morning we were woken up at 5am by the fire alarm and the weekly cleaning was haphazard at best.

The younger staff members could be extremely rude, and what I found most frustrating was their attitude towards some of my more junior colleagues who were staying in the same hotel.

Overall, I would certainly not stay there again, though I can see the benefits for a long weekend or quick trip to Brisbane. It's close to Coronation drive, toowong village and the regatta hotel.

We have stayed here a few times now and have enjoyed the units we stayed in. The layouts are good for the two bedroom units. Our stays are generally 5-6 nights and so we know the place well.

The staff are friendly and very responsive. Toowong village is a short walk away and the newly renovated Regatta bar and restaurant is about a 2 in walk.

Only complaint is there is no laundry detergent supplied...not even a sachet like other places.

Room Tip: Traffic noise is not that bad for units facing coronation drive, the view makes it worthwhile! Some...

We booked a 2 bedroom apartment with study in which was placed an extra bed. I cannot recommend this place enough. The Inn is within walking distance to Toowong shopping centre, very pleasant if you walk along the riverfront. The manager on duty was very very obliging. Will stay again when in Brisbane.

Room Tip: We had a room on the side with views of the river from the balcony, personally would not like to sta...

Booked here off wotif for a week. Great location in Toowong right near the Regatta Hotel.

Some street parking available, also parking underneath in secure parking (although the parking spots are not numbered sequentially so it is very hard to find your bay the first time).

The apartments are ok, but a bit worn. Spare bathroom shower head was broken and during a shower it sprayed all over the room, including the roof. It wet everything including all the towels. Whilst they did come and fix it, they did not replace any of the towels, so i had wet towels for my entire stay - absolutely ridiculous! This is the biggest downside - they do not service the rooms. If i stay for a week again, i will book as two 3 day blocks so that i get a new towel half way through the week.

Comfortable bed, good couches. TV was fine with good reception. Couldn't get the internet to work.

Kitchen was fine, but no dishwasher tablets or washing machine powder (not even one which you normally get at most apartments when you check in to tie you over).

So all in all an average stay - not terrible, but definitely not great.
