This is by far the worst accommodation I have ever stayed in. Before even arriving I had called up to double check my booking twice and they had lost it both times. Upon my arrival there was no parking available because all the parks were taken up by the people visiting the restaurant. Half the lights in he apartment didn't...

Yes we knew it was on a busy road but arrived in Brisbane at night and we were tired and on a shoestring budget. In addition the receptionist told us on the phone that she would give us a quiet room. As the motel looked modern (only 9yrs old) we expected it would most likely have double glazing. This proved...

“ask exactly what room(s) you are getting and 'where'. Ask if anything is on at the GABBA during your stay as it gets 'very' busy.”
  • Kitchen utensils only.
  • 2seater lounge for a 2 bdrm apartment.
  • That view out the studio window is a walkway for the public. Hence the drapes are always closed.
  • Looking from interconnecting studio room into 1 bdrm apartment.
  • Dryer is outside on balcony.
