St Lucia Gardens
Ranked #134 of 169 Hotels in Brisbane
Reviewed 3 March 2013

I stayed at this apartment with my wife during Feb 2013. Although the unit is next to Gailey Road, it was not that noisy at night. The bed was comfortable, although the toilet could be better designed. Overall, the place is quite nice for a stay, and they have provided 2 bottles of orange juice, a packet of fresh milk and some cereals free of charge for breakfast for the first morning, a very kind gesture. Furthermore, the staff in charge Steve and a lady (pardon me for not getting her name) are very friendly, and willingly share their knowledge of the surrounding areas (shopping, what bus to take, etc.). If I were to visit Brisbane again, I would definitely consider this as one of my first choice.

Room Tip: Needs to climb stairs, so be prepared. Ask for the lower floor rooms.

We have stayed at this venue on numerous times over the years. It is very handy to UQ and handy to Toowong shopping village and also public transport if you need it. Has everything you need for an extended stay, although the units are starting to look a bit tired and in need of a spruce, however the bed was excellent and shower nozzle great. Bathroom/toilet combined is very tiny. air conditioning is only in the separate bedroom and it did not appear to reach the other living space. Verandas front and back were nice. Can be noisy if you have doors and windows open, however hard to beat for good value for longer term accommodation close to UQ. Secure car park at night gives you peace of mind too. Managers friendly and complimentary first breakfast left in our fridge was appreciated. Cereal, fresh milk and orange juice.

Room Tip: rooms further away from roadside may be less noisy.

Great location with bus stops on the doorstep. Walking distance to nearby Toowing Shopping Centre and the Regatta city cat pier. Very convenient for travellingl to UQ with my daughter. Very good customer service . Special thanks to Arthur, the reliefing manager and also Ann and Steive, of course. Room was spacious, clean, tidy and well furnished. The only thing that needs improvement is the dryer. It stops at 10 minutes intervals. I stayed here for three weeks. Will come again.

Room Tip: Rooms on non-roadside are quieter.

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.

Room Tip: Stayed on same floor as reception and found no noise and easy access. Just walk one flight fo stairs...

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.

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.
