We were stuck trying to find somewhere to stay for a couple of nights in Brisbane that would accommodate four (two teenagers and two adults) without costing the earth. We needed to stay within reasonable distance of the city centre and airport. This place worked out great!
Toowong is a good transport hub with trains, buses and water taxi all running from there for the quick journey into city centre. It is a 5km walk into the city centre, if you are brave enough to dodge the heat and the mad cyclists. There are a variety of food places (cheap - mid-range) and two supermarkets.
The accommodation was clean and spacious enough for our needs. We had a great view towards the city but the pay-off was the noisy road below our window. Worth it, to us, for the view but if you want things quieter ask for accommodation away from the road. The beds were comfortable enough but the pillows were like concrete, we don't know why. If we had stayed longer we would have done something about this but they were adequate for a night or two.
One problem was the vent windows (in one bedroom) were directly above an outdoor area where smokers lingered. The bedding and our clothes smelt of smoke quickly even with the windows shut. We solved the problem by moving the ashtry to another corner but would recommend that the managers provide a smokers area that is well away from the buildings.
The pools were both wonderful and we used them at different times of the day to maximise the sun/shade.
The managers were helpful and welcoming.
