Partner and I stayed one night. Smallish room, view to a car park, not an issue this time to us as only staying one night. Clean room, fresh bedding and a king size bed joined together by two smaller beds. No safe, have to see receptionist. Car parking is at off street road level or underground. We were given one...

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. Our room was spacious and comfortable however the balcony and view was a bit of a disappointment being small and much of the "river...

Thank you Blueswarrior for your great feed back, Hillcrest once had the river views of the city, 35 years later we are starting to be built out. We are in the processes of removing all information about views form our current booking engines. Unfortunately we do not have Foxtel in the building, being an old building we are in constant...

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.

We stayed here for three nights in October and enjoyed it: the room was clean, the amenities new and the location quiet. The clientele seemed to us to be mostly family or middle aged types, so the vibes were settled and quiet. We locked ourselves out one time very late at night, and there was nobody at the front desk,...
