“Riverfront views & friendly @ reception”
Reviewed 20 November 2012

Ideal location in my favourite part of Brisbane...Teneriffe. Great friendly community. Accommodation very comfortable, older building but excellent views & has all facilities. Made feel very welcomed by Di @ reception. I have stayed here approx 8 times now, and took parents here last weekend as well. River Ferries or 199 bus are both out front. Great restaurants across road & Passione for Italian dinner or the best Gelato. Liquid Hotel for the best steaks. Walk to Powerhouse for drinks, music & comedy. What more do you want. Close to City, Valley and the best coffee shops. I will be back....becoming a local.....

Room Tip: All have river views.

Second time at Goldsborough Place - first time 3 1/2 years ago for 2 weeks in a 2 bedroom and this time in July 2012 for a week in a one bedroom. Both times there was a serious problem with smoke coming in from other balconies. Building is ageing and no longer the nicest available for the money. But the view is great. River Cat ferry is handy and the whole Teneriffe and New farm locale is great. Good food next door and across the street. More for young people. I'm not. Would recommend for the under 35 crowd. Bed was not great but other furnishing were fine and in good repair.

Washer was broken and the staff was very prompt about arranging to fix it the same day. Parking is good and prior time I used the gym in the building with a weekly discount for visitors. Good deal if still offered.

We stayed in a one bed apartment right on the river. So close it was like being on a boat. Everything on the doorstep - restaurants, ferries, close to city. All amazing and loved it - why stay in a hotel when Goldsborough Apartments are soooo much better. We will make this a regular stay.

Room Tip: Get riverfront

I booked accommodation for my daughter and her family in April 11 for arrival 28 July. I had conf # and letter from the Apartments confirming. Gerry rang my daughter less than 2 days before expected arrival and cancelled the room saying there was no room available. Gerry hung up on us both when we rang separately to ask what was going on??........
He is very rude. I couldn't possibly recommend you book here as 'guaranteed booking' in fact means I'll cancel it if I feel like it!!

Room Tip: Book elsewhere!!

I cannot believe the rudeness of this place.......Gerry has no idea what he is talking about, as twice I spoke to him, as I got the sence they really did not have a clue what they were talking about! Then rozline hung up on me! Do not ever stay here!!!!!! You will turn up and there will not be a booking for you!

Stayed at the Goldsborough Sept 15-17. Excellent, spacious rooms, great river view, great riverside jogging trail, and excellent friendly service. Highly recommended alternative to a Brisbane hotel, and better value. Trendy restaurants & convenience store 5 min walk, and easy public transport to CBD by bus or boat.

This apartment is in the old Port area of Brisbane which has been trendified and now abounds with restaurants, cafes, markets and lofts. The building is not new and needs fresh carpet and paint. Other than that it is spacious and has truly lovely views and fabulous ventilation. Because the apartment runs from front to back (each one has a river view at the front and a street view at the back) you can open the windows and let the breeze run through which is vital in summer - we didn't use the aircon the whole time, just let the flowthrough do it for us. You can sit on the balcony for breakfast and watch the ferry cat go up and back, various rowers and pleasure craft and joggers - it's a busy place at 7am.

We loved the location, great restaurants are only a short walk away and there are convenience stores everywhere for your groceries. It's trendy, so prices are a little high for food and market fare, but has more character than the centre of Brisbane. The parking was good and came with the tariff.

No complaints here. Good value for money and a good choice if you have business nearby or are visiting friends who cannot put you up, as happened to us! The pool is awesome - it's a true lap pool with 1.4m depth from end to end and is 30m long, and the gym next to it has everything you need and was extremely popular.
