We booked a 2-bedroom apartment and a King Room for 4 nights after New Year for a short holiday with overseas family. Booking was easy and everything was exactly as listed in the ad. My son upgraded himself and his family to a 1-bedroom apartment quite easily and for not much more. There were definitely plusses and a few minuses...

We stayed for 3 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment for the test match. The hotel had ensured our room was ready early so we could settle in and be at the Gabba for the first ball. Excellent under cover parking included. Very roomy and comfortable 1 bedroom apartment looking back over the Mater Hospital. Very comfortable King sized bed,...

The location of this hotel is great as it's a nice stroll down to Southbank and close to the city. The rooms are a generous size and the bed was huge which was a plus for us as we are very tall. It's not very sound proof though and we could hear a child crying in the room next door...

For sheer convenience to the Mater Hospital precinct (or the Gabba for that matter), Central Hillcrest Apartments is a pretty good option. It's also not too far away from Brisbane's Southbank precinct with its myriad cafe and restaurant options. But its very location - right on busy Vulture Street - meant that I was stuck in traffic for up to...

Chose this hotel based on its location to the Gabba (about 500m) and for a riverview. Location is excellent for the hospital, Southbank and one of the terminals for the free cityhopper ferry to the CBD.

Tidy, clean rooms, tiny balcony, noise from road and building sites close by. Lovely restaurant with great food and reasonable prices. No breakfast or meals available on weekends. Needs double glazing for noise reduction.
