8/10 Very good

Nice place to stay not too far from everything.
Sally, 2-night family trip
Verified Wotif guest review

6/10 Good

Spartan but well located
Good location at Riverway, very near to my family in Condon. Although the apartment had all of the basics needed for a week's stay (e.g. kitchen and laundry items) it was nonetheless quite Spartan relative to the apartment in Brisbane CBD where I stayed in the previous week. No TV in the bedroom, sofa was not very user friendly, one small tube of body wash and one tube of shampoo for the week. Not serviced daily, no replenishments of bathroom items nor any condiments, coffee, tea etc. It was 15% more expensive than my Brisbane suite rate, and only half as comfortable.

The garage bin was full from the previous people and it stunk .

8/10 Very good

This was a great place to stay with our family. The two bedroom, two bathroom, full kitchen unit was very quiet and comfortable. The beds were not very comfortable - I believe there were broken springs in the mattress, however this is my only complaint. We will definitely stay here again.

8/10 Very good

Perfect place for a work trip, very convenient facilities and close to a large shopping centre for supplies. My room had a great view of the Ross river. Definitely would stay again if on an extended work trip.

8/10 Very good

Loved the scenery, from the balcony looking out onto the Ross river, grounds were well maintained. Room was nice, attention to detail, a lot of dust in around hidden spaces for example the top of the fridge had a layer of dust and grime which appeared to be their for sometime. Overall a great stay.

10/10 Exceptional

Felt safe within the complex especially at night. Enjoyed the surroundings and walking trail. View from balcony was so restful and spacious. Unit was clean and inviting. Appreciated the fans and airconditioning for a very hot/humid October. Shops and eating places are close by.
