I stayed recently for 1 night to attend a wedding. Called and spoke with Paul to book and was checked in/out by Sue. Both were absolutely lovely, explaining the check in sheet and expectations of management when staying at the hotel. The room was clean and comfortable. I would recommend Many Marina Cove to people looking for a great place...

This place is great. It is very clean and tidy and for what you pay, makes it a very good deal. Great location across from the QLD Royal Yacht Squadron. We were here for a sailing regatta and it was the prefect location. If you want to visit other parts of Brisbane you will need a car, but in this...

Only stayed overnight but great all round experience. Good check-in, lift to room, clean and tidy and lovely outlook to bay from balcony. Plenty of parking outside with the yacht club across the roadway. Special mention to staff/housekeeping who posted 2sets of iPhone/pad chargers 'and' cords back to me, that were left in room after stay. Thank you.

Been staying here sporadically for business over past 3-4 years. Recent rennovations and styling are fablous. As always location is beautiful to wake up to water views and birds. Walking path along Moreton Bay is nice before/after work. High speed Wifi is free and fast. Easy walk to great cafes / restaurants. Only gets better beach time. Super friendly staff.
