I remember when St.Lucia Gardens was build, and we often had visitors stay there but this was my first stay there and I got exactly what I expected, great service and very comfortable place to stay. Arthur, the manager is very friendly and was very helpful, a short talk with him makes you feel better even on the worst day. The property is located very conveniently, 5 minute walk from Toowong village, where you find grocery stores (including the famous Fruity Capers with the best mangos when they are in season), post office, library, K-mart, bottle shops, restaurants, train station, bus stops. A bit longer walk for those wanting to take the City Cat ferry or a much shorter for those wanting to catch a bus to UQ, the bus stop to UQ is just outside the gate. If you are there on holidays, you can walk along the river to the city, bike along the river or go for a run. There is plenty to do around, Arthur can help you find your way around if you are a visitor to Brisbane.
The biggest surprise to me was a very good wireless internet connection, better than in Germany or Holland and sensibly priced. Rooms are spacious and kitchen well equipped to cook what you desire. I loved staying at St Lucia Gardens, the location and quality make it great value for money and I definitely understand now why all out visitors to UQ wanted to always stay there.
