Twice now I have visited Brisbane on business with the University of Queensland - both times I have stayed at St Lucia Gardens, and I would definitely do so again. The property is very convenient to UQ with a bus stop just outside the gates and very frequent service to the university. Shops / cafes of Toowong - including a supermarket, kmart, a great deli (Fruity Capers), good curry (at Ceylon Inn), etc - are a 5min walk away. A 10 min walk will get you to a pedestrian/cycle path along the beautiful Brisbane River and the City Cat ferry stop (Regatta). Wireless internet is available for nominal fee and is high quality. The rooms are spacious and clean with kitchenettes (that are thoughtfully stocked with heathy breakfast supplies and fresh fruit!) The beds and pillows are very comforable and fresh thick white towels a plus. The manager Arthur is very friendly and extremely accomodating - I was allowed to check in early which was a lifesaver after a long-haul flight from London. The location, comfort and quality make St Lucia Gardens an outstanding value and it's my first choice for accomodation in Brisbane.
