Not utra modern but very comfortable with full kitchen facilities. Good for longer term stay. Handy location. Friendly enough staff. Parking underneath. We stayed here to attend wedding at St Lucia gold course which is just down the road.

Good location, very easy to find. Clean and tidy although our apartment was looking a bit old and could do with some sprucing. A few negatives though - not enough towels were provided for number of people booked, bathroom is extremely tiny and the carpark is cramped and hard to manouver in a large car...just small things I know. The most annoying thing for us was a building flaw that nothing could be done about, when I rang and booked I specifically asked if the door between the bedroom and remainder of the apartment closed as there is an issue with snoring.....lol......it wasn't until much later in the evening that we discovered that the door did not fully close, sure the bottom met but there was a 20cm + gap at the top, some part of that door is not square....so this might be trivial to some or many but it was a huge negative affected our stay at this premises.

Room Tip: One street is slightly quieter than the other.

Breakfast hardly provided. Room was well furnished and comfortable. Walking distance to Guyatt Park where you can take the city cat.

A clean apartment, well appointed, in a location ideal for access to the University of Queensland. Proprietors Shorty and Steve go out of their way to make your stay comfortable and assist wherever possible.

I have stayed here several times when I have had to work at Universtiy of Queensland for several weeks at a time.The apartments are a very good size - bedroom, kitchen and living area and are very clean. Location is great - only a 20 minute walk to uni, or there is a bus stop literally at the front door that takes 5 minutes to UQ. Ten minute walk to the Brisbane ferry. The owners are very helpful and welcoming, even providing cereal and juice for my first few days because they knew I would not have time to go to the shop when I arrived. Also they were very helpful in providing alternate accommodation for me when my stay had to be extended but they were booked out. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The kitchens in the upstairs apartments give more room than the downstairs kitchens, but both are mo...

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.

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.
