“perfect”
Reviewed 24 September 2011

We were a little apprehensive when we arrived from the airport by shuttle bus( located at airport). The area looked very residenital and the hotel was alongside a very busy road. However when we settled in and went for a walk around the area we were well satisfied. The hotel is a few mins walk from the Cats ferry. This is used as a "bus" along the Brisbane river to move from point to point. It was a lovely way to travel in and out of the city centre. However it is also an extra expense which must be factored into your stay (approx$ 4 AUD each trip pp with a Go card). We booked a studio, perfect for 2. Very clean. The kitchenette was small, no toaster allowed due to some problem. Pity.The hotel is small and very pleasant, the pool was really a plunge pool and in dire need of a clean up along with the whole back seating area. The restaurant looked very nice but pricy. Did not eat there. There are plenty of eating places nearby and a good supermarket. The reception area and lounge area was very comfortable and had a lovely athmosphere. Drinks were fairly priced. Sarah in reception was particularly helpful and friendly.

A very handy place to stay with the Gabba cricket ground and the RiverCat ferry a short walk away. All of the staff were friendly and very helpful. Many thanks to Paul and Maria the owners.

Like the other reviews I agree that the staff were friendly, the location was good and it was quite good value for money. We had a good stay here and aren't the type to complain but there were a couple of things that could be improved on...
- When we arrived the hallway was slightly untidy with bits of rubbish around, which was a bit off putting - however it was cleaned up the next day.
- The decor was a little tired to be honest, it may just be that we got an older room. It wasn't a major issue but it wasn't quite what we considered "boutique" (as it stated).
- The no toaster in the room was slightly annoying too with the issue of setting off smoke alarms!
- The internet! There is no "hi speed" Wifi, and they stated it would be $10 for an hour's use! Not to mention we couldn't actually connect to it from our room, so we had to use a modem from reception! But they ended up charging us half price because of this.
We had a good stay despite these minor details and on the plus side:
- There is secure underground parking
- The room service we ordered was good
- The view we had from our room was brilliant
- The location was very handy for us

Room Tip: If you want a good view choose one of the rooms at the back of the hotel.

The apartment was new, clean and amazing. It felt so homely.
Really nice furnishings and within walking distance (1.5 kms) to the Eagle St Ferry Pier.

Nice pub accross the road and a 2 minute walk from IGA.

Will definitely stay here again soon, especially if we are going to the GABBA (400 mts)

The only negative was the lack of blinds, but with the apartment being 1 month old, this should be rectified soon.

Comfortable and clean, the location is fantastic. Only 5 minutes walk to river cat stop, local shops, several restaurants - very convenient. The staff were professional and very friendly and went out of their way to help us.
We will definitely stay there next time we are in Brisbane -

Room Tip: Try for a room away from the restaurant area

Clean, comfortable and welcoming. Staff could not do enough to help, room was clean and fresh, good air con, secure car parking, good shower pressure. Family friendly pub with great bistro straight across the road. Only complaint was that the bed was too hard but this is the same everywhere now days. We will stay again.
