Goldsborough Place
Ranked #41 of 143 Speciality Lodging in Brisbane
Reviewed 26 September 2013

Loved our stay at Goldsborough Place. If you are looking for somewhere with a great vibe close to Brisbane city then this is a great place. Ferry terminals and bus (all walking distance) will take you wherever you want to go. Surrounded by trendy restaurants and quirky little shops I really enjoyed time out from work looking around the place. There is also a gym located at the bottom of the complex (first session free or $15 casual visit) and a 25m lap pool (which is free). One of the days I also ran along the river front right into the city (approx 6km) through New Farm which was lovely. I decided to stay on for the wkend to have a better look around. A nice trip is to also duck across the river (ferry leaves from the bus terminal just off Vernon Tce- near McTagets Place) to Bulimba cheap movies and popular restaurant strip. Highly recommend.

Location and the view of the river was excellent. The apartment was adequate for our needs but bathroom was in need with an update. We did not get the room that we initially had booked and was therefore put in a room that did not suit my family needs, eg. needed 2 single beds and a double. The roll away bed was not adequate for either of my over 6' teenage boys to sleep on, but Di managed to find a double bed mattress for one to sleep on the floor. Di the manager was great in helping us with directions and any other issues we had with our room.

Location wise Goldborough Place is in a fantastic locaton, close to the city and transport, the river views are great and parking is a bonus. Di the Manger was terrific and she was very accomodating and extremely pleasant and had great local knowledge.

But there are some issues with maintance and servicing, I thought for $200 per night my room would be serviced or at least the bed made but this did not happen and the fan in the bedroom only had 1 speed and was noisy. The units are looking a bit tired and could do with an update.

My partner and I with our 2 year Son stayed at the GOLDBOROUGH PLACE in Teneriffe Brisbane for 7 nights it was outstanding, The customer service from Di was absolutely perfect, Great views of Brisbane river, was vibrant, exciting area, with many superb restaurants in a short walking distance.
I would like to Thank Di for going out of her way and helping us accommodate my son when he was sick and dropping us to the doctors. And for organising all our dinners.
thank you was awesome :-)

Room Tip: Call the Goldsborough and ask to speak to DI and im sure she will accomadate your needs

Position is fantastic - just out of the city, parking available, but still close to everything. New management recently took over, but they are managing separately owned apartments - therefore every room will be arranged with different furniture & quality.
If the owners of the units renovate they 20 year old interior of each unit - this would be a great property - but don't expect owners to pay ~$50k for the required renovations.

I had appointments in area and the location & view is perfect - I had a good night's sleep on a double bed (it really needed to be a Queen bed). There was a noisy fan and no airconditioning in the bedroom - but there was an airconditioner in the lounge room, but didn't turn it on or test it.
The down side is: Old apartment, no aircon in the bedroom, noisy fan in the bedroom, no exhaust fan in the bathroom (and slightly smelly), very noisy kids next door at "OMG in the morning" - approx 6am - overall, not worth $200 per night.
The good: Di (property manager) was lovely - only took over 1.5 months ago, location & parking, facilities were sufficient, just old and needed a refresh. If she can get some owners to upgrade their units and have a slightly more expensive "executive" option - I'd be back & pay for that, but not likely to return whilst the units are in their current state.

We made a group booking here, with 4 groups staying between 2 and 5 nights. All rooms were charged at the same rate but there were huge discrepancies in the quality of the rooms due to the fact they're individually owned but managed centrally.

Only one bedroom (in a two bedroom unit) was airconditioned, none of the other bedrooms in any of the units had airconditioning, only fans. Our room had both bedrooms about 5 metres from the busy road (traffic passed regularly even at 3am), meaning that the windows couldn't be opened due to road noise. Those units lucky enough to have rooms on the river side rather than the road side could open the windows for more ventilation, but even so it was still only just bearable and the temperature was only 25 degrees with quite a bit of wind (due to an ex-tropical cyclone passing through). Living area was airconditioned, but leaving this on didn't reach the bedrooms with any cooling.

Location is excellent with many very good restaurants within a minute or two walk. Room decor varied between rooms, one was very dated and looked like it hadn't been refurbished since it was built. One was basic and serviceable if a little dirty in places. Two others were furnished to a very high standard.

Service was very hit and miss. It took us months of email and phone messages to get a confirmation for all the rooms. The kettle in our room was broken when we arrived and this was replaced very quickly, in around 10-15 minutes. Toilet seat was also broken on arrival, this was also replaced very quickly.

Checkout was a nightmare, reception was unattended for 20 minutes at 10am (the stated checkout time) with no contact available on either the main reception line or emergency mobile contact. Room charges were incorrectly allocated between guests, and though this could be remedied amongst ourselves it's not something we'd expect to have to do when paying these kind of rates.

I had wondered why there were so many positive reviews considering the state of the room we had. It seems the reviewers here were the lucky ones to get the better quality rooms. I definitely would NOT recommend staying here in the summer months whatsoever. Winter months it would still be a gamble, if you got one of the nicer rooms it would possibly be worth the price, but if you got one of the older rooms it wouldn't be good value even at half the rate.

Felt more like a holiday than a business trip.
Million dollar views from the balcony and located close to bars, restaurants, gym, walking/running track on the river.
Manager was extremely helpful and made our stay enjoyable.
Highly recommend this place and will be booking again for my next business trip.
