“Comfortable, clean, well equipped on noisy street”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

Everything you need for a few nights or a week. Comfortable bed, nice bathroom, well equipped kitchen, garage parking and excellent location close to the Aucheflower train station. We did not use the AC because we left the windows open but we were tempted to because the traffic noise on busy Milton Road was constant, even at night. Fortunately, we were very tired at the end of the day. Owners were very accommodating and let us check in early because the apartment was not rented the previous night. Coin laundry was available downstairs in the garage area.

Room Tip: We ha room #4, the farthest from Milton St. I would expect the traffic noise to be even greater in r...

Stayed for an extended break in August and were very happy with the facilities. Our room was furthest from Milton Road - and traffic noise was not an issue.
The large room had adequate facilities and there is a laundry in the garage below. The room was very clean, with 2 beds, a kitchen area and en suite bathroom.
Apart from the dining chairs at the table there was nowhere to sit to watch TV other than on the bed. This was our only issue as we felt the accommodation was value for money.

Ron was always friendly and helpful.

Buses are available on Milton Road or trains into city from Auchenflower station - both only minutes walk from the apartments

Room Tip: Ask for a room furthest from Milton Road end

We frequently stay in this area but, having read some good reviews on Tripadvisor, we were disappointed. On a positive note, the place is convenient and very clean, but it has several downsides which would earn it no higher than a 3 star rating. No-one at reception, the place was locked (3pm Saturday!). They left us a message asking us to let ourselves in and leave the keys when we left. Very friendly :-( We needed to ask about a few things but the place appears to be unstaffed over the weekend - we saw no-one. Light over bathroom mirror didn't work. We wanted to use Wi-Fi but it needs a password - no-one to ask. No shampoo or conditioner in bathroom. They leave small boxes of cereal in the room for breakfast. Several were past the "Use by" date. All these things are trivial (unless you have a 5 star rating to live up to) and could have been sorted out if anyone had bothered to show up.
Other things to note. It's noisy. Not just the road, the whole place carries sound from the other rooms/ The plumbing is especially noisy and we were woken several times by tvs, other guests, taps running, toilets being flushed - all the ordinary stuff of hotel rooms but very pronounced here.
The picture gives the impression that the place is in a garden setting. Not so, There is no garden. A block of apartments at the back looks right into the rooms. The other sides open onto roads - one of them is very busy and noisy until quite late. Take ear plugs. I'd struggle to give this a 3 star rating knowing that there are far better options nearby which are 3s. The rooms are NOT apartments, they are no bigger or better equipped than most hotel rooms nearby. Don't waste your time or money.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else or take earplugs.

Stayed at Wesley Studio Apartments with two teenagers for U18 Australian National Basketball Championships in April 2013. Manager Ron very friendly, helpful and obliging. Our unit had EVERYTHING we needed, including laundry facilities - it was very well equipped and comfortable.
Traffic was a bit noisy but it didn't worry us too much. Double glazed windows closed and air con on masked the traffic and the children said using their ipods and headphones while going to sleep helped! :) I guess the units further from Milton Road would be quieter - we had the front unit but we got used to the traffic noise and were so tired after our busy days we slept through it! We didn't see or hear the other occupants at all - so it was very private. Free wireless internet very much appreciated!
Convenience is a HUGE + - so close to train, bus and ferry public transport - easy to get to the city and to the Toowong Shopping Centre. You can save heaps by getting a Go-Card at the Auchenflower Train Station at the end of the street - a very helpful fellow in the office there showed us how it all worked!
Coffee shop over the road recommended!
Great value for money and would definitely recommend to other visitors to Brisbane or people needing accommodation close to hospitals and medical facilities. There are lots of parks nearby and the river is close by with a great walk/cycle way alongside it. Brisbane has a lovely relaxed vibe with friendly and helpful locals :)

Went to the eye hospital just across the road. We were concerned about the road noise, Ron said to just close the double glaze windows and turn on the air conditioner. He was very helpful and answered all of our questions. We had a wonderful stay at Wesley and will return on our next visit to Brisbane.

Went to the football at Suncorp Stadium. Caught the train at the end of the street - nice and easy. Walked back to the apartments after the game, only took 15 minutes. Very clean and comfortable accommodation. Managers were friendly and extremely helpful. We would be happy to return soon

My husband and I spent 5 nights at Wesley Apartments. Ron was there to greet us when we arrived and showed us to our room (even carried my bags!). Our room had a brand new LCD TV and there were also DVD's in the reception that we could borrow, no charge. Our first night we had a wonderful meal at the Thai Restaurant in the next block and the following morning walked across the road to get a coffee from the coffee shop! We walked along the Riverwalk into Southbank, this took about half an hour and we caught a City cat back to Toowong with only a short walk back to the apartments. We did notice some noise from the main road however with the windows closed and the air conditioner on we both slept through the night. We were offered a carpark if we had a car and free wifi for our stay. In the mornings we opened the blinds and the morning sun was fabulous as we sat and ate our breakfast. Everything was clean and well kept and we will definitely stay again on our next visit to Brisbane.
