Stayed here again as I had another gig in the city.. Staff were extremely pleasant, helpful and accommodating. The room was fresh and clean, beds are comfy and the refurbishing improvements by the new owners just keep coming! The view from our room was awesome, we could see fireworks for the Christmas festivities as we were very close to Southbank...

We had a 2brm apartment which came as a 1brm with interconnecting door to a studio room. We did have the option of getting a 1 bdrm with a small hallway to a studio (all private) but as teenager would have been in the 'studio' apartment, I decided that it would be more family friendly with interconnecting door 'open'. Very...

Dear bubblesbabe73, Thank you for your post, I'm not sure to what you are referring? Are you sure you are talking about this facility?

After reading other reviews and the managers responses thought i would give it a go but very disappointed. Staff were great but we were very disappointed with room 8, there was a exposed light fitting in the shower and a big blob of what appeared to be wet toilet paper stuck to the ceiling.

Southern Cross are a three-star rated motel and deliver fine to those expectations. Dated rooms, comfortable beds and old and noisy air conditioners. Just the basics and fine if that is all you require. A few restaurants and takeaway options within walking distance.

Thank you Brettw_online. for your review. You are absolutely right. Southern Cross motel at Kangaroo Point QLD is a 3 star motel at 3 star prices. However, we have many advantages over other motels. We are an inner city motel with free secure off street parking, something you don't get at most other motels of any star rating. The cost...

  • 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.
