“Great location and Price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2013

We stayed here on a recent trip to Brisbane and are so glad we chose this hotel. It is pefectly located just outside the centre so no noise and bustle, but has a train station and ferry stop right at your door. One stop on ferry or 2 on train gets you to Queen st Mall, Casino, shops etc.
The hotel is very nicely set up with big rooms, balconies and large bathrooms. There is a restaurant attached that serves a great and well priced breakfast, and a shopping centre at train station including DJ's and KMart, & Coles . The Manager Mike is very nice and went out of his way to accomodate us in an upgraded room when we arrived 4 hours earlier than expected and found us another excellent room when we extended our stay without notice. Staff at the hotel were quick to recommend activities and best way to get where we wanted to go. All in all a good place to stay

We stayed 2 nights in a 2bedroom apartment to attend a wedding & paid $319 pn ( breakfast not included). The rate was under a wedding account & since the bridle party also stayed there we did have high expectations especially considering the rate was relatively high. We were disappointed by the smallish living area, & kitchen , thankfully we didnt cook at all. The apartment was new & clean however, with a bright painting which brightens it up. The location was good, with supermarkets, trains, bus & restaurants close by.
The lady at reception was dismissive & either negligent or forgetful. We told her in the afternoon that we didnt want breakfast the next morning, but on check out we were charged for breakfast we didnt have & told its because we didnt let them know we didnt want breakfast (????). Overall the place had everything we needed for a short stay, though still not value for money. But spending more time there would be too claustrophobic.

Stayed here for business, and although it was adequate, it most certainly wasn't 4.5 stars. It was like a nice motel. Ok for a business trip, but don't expect 4.5 star quality and then you won't be disappointed.

I booked our one night stay through Last Minute. The Jephson was rated 4.5 stars. The location was good but I was so disappointed with the room. It was "adequate" no more no less. For 4.5 Stars I expected much, much more. There is no way this could be classed at 4.5 star rated. No extras not a single movie on the supposedly free channels was worth watching. The Hotel was a glorified motel room!
For cleanliness, the the tiled bathroom floor needed a good scrub and the extractor fan did not work.

We could not access the restaurant for breakfast until 8am. I was served the worst cup of coffee I have ever. I had asked for a double shot but the coffee was so weak I returned it to the waitress who gave it to the "barista". This member of staff had not served me a replacement coffee 20 minutes later when I had finished my meagre breakfast.
When I cancelled my coffee and walked out, She was belligerently polite. I would never return to the Jephson.

Nice room, though quite noisy with traffic noise. Close to restaurants, transport etc so is good that way.
The breakfast was yummy but the service was a bit slow.
Free parking is great - safe and secure.
I would stay there again.

Thank you for your review. Breakfast at Js Restaurant, what a perfect way to start your day. Good value and great food, delays we do experience delays when guests arrive for breakfast at the same time. We do apologise for this, but very pleased all the same that you enjoyed the breakfast. We are centrally located to many fine restaurants and eateries and of course our own restaurant which is open for Dinner 6 nights a week.
One of our many points of difference is that we do offer all our hotel guests complimentary free parking with the option of secured parking also. The hotel is located on a corner block we do have thicker glazing on all our external glass which does minimise noise.
Again we are pleased that your stay was a good one and we look forward to seeing you again.

Kind Regards

We paid $179 which included a continental breakfast in the cafe downstairs. We had a beautiful room with a large balcony and a huge bathroom with an excellent shower. The hotel is located in an inner Brisbane suburb with a train and ferry service to the city nearby. A rather dated shopping centre which included David Jones is 100 metres away. Staff were very friendly and free parking in the basement was a bonus. I will certainly stay here again when I'm next in Brisbane.

Thank you very much for the positive review. We do believe we offer great value for money and the bed and breakfast packages are no exception. The local shopping centre has recently unveiled the new refit of David Jones and there are many specialty shops in the centre also. We are centrally located to awesome transport options with easy access to the University of Queensland and the Wesley Hospital.
We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Jephson hotel is perfectly situated two minutes walk from train station and shopping centre, and just a few more minutes walk took us to the Regatta City Cat for a pleasant scenic travel into Brisbane. Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean with lovely bathroom. We enjoyed breakfast, which was beautifulluy presented, in the bright and well laid out restaurant. The staff were all helpful and friendly and very speedy check in check out. It was so easy to get the train straight from the airport to Toowong station and walk the 100 yeards or so to the hotel. There is plenty of free parking too. We stayed four nights and found it excellent value and a really comfortable place to stay. Will definitley stay again.

Thanks very much for taking the time to review the hotel.
Our location, as you mentioned is perfect for those guests requiring quality accommodation near Suncorp Stadium, The University of Queensland and the Wesley Hospital. Over the last two years the Jephson Hotel has become the preferred hotel for visitors attending the many functions and weddings venues located in the western suburbs.
We are excited to say that we have a new Executive Chef leading the kitchen brigade and he has revamped all menus from the Restaurant to In-Room Dining giving a much broader menu choice than before. From when you first arrive at the Jephson Hotel to check out, we like to keep it all simple and make the process of checking in and out as simple and hassle free as possible, allowing you more time to enjoy the accommodation and the restaurant and bar.
Access to CBD is very easy an the City Cat is a great way to access the University of Qld, South Bank and the Brisbane CBD.
Who doesn’t love free parking, free Wi-Fi in the public areas and free in-house movies!
Thank you for your review and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Jephson soon.
Regards
