Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

We stayed for one night before joining our cruise, and 2 nights after. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and even drove us to the cruise terminal. The rooms are small but very warm, quiet and cosy. There is plenty of places to eat nearby a childrens park across the road and only a short walk to the River Ferry. We would happily stay again. Be aware of the Taxi companies, a fare from the airport should be around $30. (Not $47 with a toll!)

Stayed July 2014, travelled with family

Stayed day before taking a cruise and again for a night after cruising.
They had a free shuttle service to the port in the morning of the cruise and we were able to be picked up on our return for a $5 fee from the port back to the hotel and we were given an early check in. There is no restaurant at the motel but the port is about a 10 minute walk with an IGA, cinema and restaurants and we found a great seafood restaurant/cafe/take away - Seagrills 3min walk from motel in Nudgee Rd.The service at the motel was great and the staff were very friendly and helpful, found the rooms to be a good size and very clean, shower a bit small though, beds comfortable, had a twin room with one double and one single bed. Ordered a hot breakfast one morning, very nice and well cooked, usual motel pricing. There is a free taxi phone just outside of reception and taxi arrived a couple of minutes after calling, cost to airport was about $20-$25.

Stayed for one night before flying out of Brisbane. Clean, comfortable, friendly saff. Good comfortable bed and a quiet room. Just 5 minutes walk to restaurants - we ate at the Italian restaurant just down the road. Took shuttle to airport next morning. Would stay there again.

This is a good hotel to stay in if you are going on a cruise that leaves from Brisbane, the rooms are very nice and airy, the air conditioning is good.Some rooms have balconies which give a little more room and fresh air. There a small fridge and tea making facilities in the room. You don't here traffic from nearby street.
They don't have a restaurant but down stairs at the front desk the have munchies and drinks in a large fridge that you can buy, or you can go to the Port area; it's about a 10 minute walk; where there are shops and restaurants (including a great Mexican one) and an IGA; also in the street behind there is a large fish shop that sells great fish and chip and other seafood delicacies, but it's quit popular with the locals so you my have to wait for a little while. But it looks like you can phone in an order, so if you get a menu you might want to do it that way.
They also have a shuttle service to the Port wharf if you're catching a cruise ship and there is also a direct taxi phone near the entrance to the hotel. all in all it's a nice place to stay if you're catching a cruise the next day.

Room Tip: It looks like only some of the rooms closer to the front have balconies. there is a balcony next to...

Overnight in Airport Ascot ahead of a cruise. No courtesy van from airport. Cab cost around $25. Rooms on the smaller side, but tidy and modern looking, and suprisingly quiet with the busy road alongside. So all in all quite adequate for a 1 night stay. Grabbed a room service cooked breakfast, and took the courtesy van to the dockside ready for a nice cruise.

Tossed up between a number of airport hotels as I only needed a bed for 8 hours in between flights coming in and out of Brisbane. Ultimately went with the Airport Ascot and was not expecting an awful lot given that it is in an area that is primarily for layovers, but was pleasantly surprised.

The room was spacious, quiet, very clean and comfortable. Arrived and departed whilst reception was closed but there is a security box to collect keys and a drop box to leave them the next day. I was impressed that the hotel rang to see what time I was arriving and departing so they could ensure that I could get into my room. There was a kettle, tea and coffee in the room, but it would have been good if there was a vending machine given that reception was closed (and that were the cold drinks and snacks were sold) but went to the hotel next door and took advantage of their offerings.

Would stay here again if I have a layover and recommend it for this purpose.

FYI: Please be aware that hotels in this area (and there are about 3 blocks of them) are about a $30-$35 taxi ride from the airport. This is not a fault of the hotel and also not why they are not getting an excellent, rather it's just a general note that Brisbane Airport Hotel's are not actually at the airport, within walking distance of it or even a 5-10 minute taxi trip like most airport hotels are.

I had 7 hours to kill and having just stepped off a 14 hour flight from LA all my body could think of was sleep. I found the Airport Ascot 550 on the information board at the baggage area of the airport.
Plus: a published day rate. Clean and inviting rooms, friendly accommodating staff,close to airport.
Cons: needed to take a taxi as they don't offer a shuttle.
I was thrilled to find a hotel that was interested in offering a day rate and everything was great from there on in.
Yes I will stay there again and be happy to do so.

Room Tip: I know they have a pool, I didn't use it so can't rate it and don't know about fitness r...
