“1 Night stay at Aabon Macquarie Apartments - 3 bed apartment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

Everything was super clean and organised. Close to Wooloowin train station and only 2 stops from Brisbane International Airport. Very conveniently located for the overnight traveler with a convenience store staying open until 9pm and a Chinese take-away. The area was very quiet but then this was on a Sunday night.
We traveled with 3 small children and unfortunately had to maneuvre the stairs to the 1st floor with baggage, stroller & children in hand.
The only comment I would make about improvement is that visitors should be notified that the Macquarie Apartments are across the street from reception.
All in all a very good place to stay - I would recommend the Macquarie Apartments.

Room Tip: We occupied apartment no 2 - next to the main street - still it was quiet but perhaps because we sta...

Thank you for recommending our Macquarie apartments. This block is a small renovated block of 2 & 3 bedroom apartments which is across the street from Reception and with their Full kitchen facilities are ideal for families & groups. While being a 3 1/2 Star, they are well set up and the 3 bedroom apartments was obviously ideal for your needs. Hopefully we can be of assistance next time you come through Brisbane. All the Best.

I have only been to see friends that have stayed here. But the rooms seem very big, and are kept very clean. The beds are very comfy. I think it is great that there is a little kitchen in the apartments, as we didn't have to go out to get dinner. They are very comfortable to stay. I would highly recommend this place.

We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the Aabon. Looks like you stayed in one of our 1 bedroom apartments. These are very popular because of their size and kitchenette. Hopefully we can be of assistance next time you need accommodation between central Brisbane & and the airport. kind regards Chris & Janine Campbell. Managers.

The place is just minutes walk from the airport railway line, and thus ideal for a stopover. Friendly staff and clean rooms. There was a power cut from 2am until I left early in the morning, but that was not the hotel's fault - the entire area was out.
Smokers were a problem. I had smoke coming into the room from under the door. I rolled up a towel and put it in front of the door, and the problem was solved, but people should not be allowed to smoke on the balconies.
Be aware of railway fares! For the two (2!!!) stops from the domestic terminal to Wooloowin station it is a whopping $AUD31.00 return! If you are more than one, it might be just as cheap to take a taxi.
Overall, a good place to stay for a night, and I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Rooms in the "front" house on the ground floor seem to be a bit exposed. People walk by an...

Thank you for posting a review. Although the airport / Gold Coast train does stop at our local station ( 3 mins walk ) it is expensive. For 2 or more people it is cheaper to get a cab and no walk to the station.
You must be very sensitive to cigarette smoke as the only other people near your room were in the other building at least 8 metres away. I have no answers on how to solve this as I would have thought that, being on the 3rd floor the breeze along with the seals on the sliding doors and internal ventilation, would have dissipated any problem. Having owned motels in NZ I know that NZer's are far more precious about cigarettes than here in Australia.
Hope you had a safe trip home. All the best Chris Campbell, manager.

Thank you for your review. I can't find your name in our records but, in whatever type of room or apartment you stayed in, we are pleased that we met your expectations.
Being a 3 or 3 12/2 Star, depending on what type of apartment you book, we like to think that our pricing is in line with our rating. Those that book on price but really want facilities with a higher rating maybe disappointed.
The Aabon, while being situated in a quiet suburban location off the main roads, is very centrally located for the likes of the Gold or Sunshine Coasts and the airport, central city, rail transport etc.

Kind Regards, Chris & Janine Campbell. Managers.

What can I say, I have read some other reviews and how some people complained is hard to deal with, they are either the types that complain all the time or were having a very bad day.
This place is simply superb and managed by Janine & Chris, a very experienced couple both of whom cant do enough for you. I have never seen a place so clean and nothing is a fuss. Near the railway, near the main rd, near the airport and near the city with a chinese restaurant and convenience stores next door but one.
In pretty leafy Wooloowin, a quite pretty suburb of the north side and near to some good shopping centres.
Price wise, I told Chris you could charge more but he is happy with the balance. A beautiful swimming pool and bbq area with laundry facilities. I prefer to use a line to dry and Chris could not find me some pegs fast enough. There is an internet room (free) and anything else, just ask. These managers put in the time and effort and I applaud them for the way this place is run. All rpoom staff are happy and chatty and there is a very low staff turnover, what does that tell you?
I will be back next time I visit my daughter, oh and a beautiful view of Brissy from the balcony.
Thankyou for making my stay so pleasurable, David Pearce, SA

WOW, how can I comment on this review. No readers, this review is not ' self generated '.
Our policy is to treat our guests the way we would like to be treated when we go away. The Aabon is ' high end ' 3 Star motel but that does not mean we can't provide 5 Star cleanliness & service. Some times we don't get it right but I am fortunate that we have very good staff who work hard to keep the standards up.
It really makes our day when our guests go away with the thought that the Aabon is value for money and that they had an enjoyable stay.

When booking a room with a king size bed, one expects to find exactly that, a king size bed, not two single beds pushed together with a sheet thrown over them. It was very disappointing & extremely uncomfortable to say the least. If the bed situation was fixed I would recommend these apartments to others & stay there again myself. At $185 per night I did expected a suitable bed for a couple not the two single beds pushed together to make one. The rest of the apartment however was clean, comfortable & spacious (rm 4m). The staff were very helpful & friendly. The kids loved the pool too.

Tammy

Room Tip: Make sure the bed is what you pay for.

Our self cater 1 bedroom apartments are nice & large. Along with the pool & BBQ area they are ideal for a Family even for the 1 night you stayed.
Like many motels having a King bed that splits into 2 singles gives us options for the varying requirements of our guests. By combining with the Studio next door we can offer a 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom option which are very popular for families. We even have a 3 bedroom / 2 bathroom option.
Thank you for taking the time to post your review.

We stayed at the Aabon for a weekend in late November - we had a 2 BR 2 bathroom apartment facing the street. It was clean, actually pretty quiet, and very comfortable for 2 adults and 2 kids. It's a really convenient location, close to the train station and there are shops close by. Our kids liked the pool. The managers who run it are extremely helpful and obliging and were very understanding when we were held up due to our flight being cancelled. We would stay here again and I can definitely recommend if you want something basic, but clean, convenient and friendly.

Thank you for your review. It was a pleasure being of service to you. We fully understand that sometimes travel plans don't work our as one would wish and, as long as our guests communicate with us about any problems we can usually work around them.
The Aabon is a very good 3 or 3 1/2 Star motel depending on what of the different options the guest selected for their accommodation requirements and this is were we target our marketing & facilities. We are very busy so there is obviously a need for us out there.

All the Best, Chris & Janine Campbell. Managers.
