“A little granny home in the middle of Brisbane! An experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

My parents had recommended it as "An experience", and it was. From the first time you see it (you'll spot it!) You walk into a little granny's paradise.

Friendly staff, doiley's, thank you note tables (great for a read), helpful staff, and some parking at the back (great for the central location, but check/book it) and seeing colours that shouldn't go together, go together.

Cosy and homely, is how we describe it.

And we've already recommended it as a fun and different place to stay in Brisbane!

Stayed May 2014, travelled as a couple

Great location. Only few minutes walking distance to central station, Queens Mall, Cafes and Bars. It is also close to main office buildings.

However it is a budget accommodation (Bed & breakfast). Facility include 24 hour tea/coffee making. Not ideal for family with children.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are bit quite.

Perfect location close to Brisbane CBD. Walking distance to everything. Rooms are clean, breakfast is sufficient. Staff are very friendly. Perfect pit stop if you are on route somewhere or just going to brisbane for a weekend. Close to Queen street for shops and the river.

We only stayed one night for an airport stopover, but the inn was just what we needed. The bed was comfy, everything was clean, and the location was ideal, just a few minutes walk from the centre of the CBD. The staff were very friendly and run a great bnb, highly recommended if you're after a good quality budget stay

I loved it. Very clean, peaceful, quiet, no surprise in the corners, helpful staff, do recommend strongly. Really close to everything if you don't mind walking for 5mns (close to centre of Brisbane and Central station).

Thanks so much and keep up the good work!

Gentle staff, family environment. Old fashion place, clean and tide room. Good location near to central station. Quite simple breakfast. For sure we are coming back if we pass trough Brisbane again, recommend. No fridge inside the room...
