This hotel is right downtown and is very close to everything. Great pool. Nice barbecue area. Has a cool workout area. And there's air conditioning. Overall a perfect place to stay in Brisbane with convenient underground parking. Just keep in mind that parking is $15 per night.

I stayed at The Ridge with my 7yr old daughter from the 9th of January till the 13th. Our experience was amazing and I was very impressed with the cleanliness, bed comfort and helpful staff. Most notably Vanessa who always greeted us with a smile. It was my daughters first hotel stay and she is very susceptible to bugs and...

I got bed bugs with severe allergic reaction from staying at this facility. The room which we were moved to upon discovering this, was filthy.

Our room had a quote on the wall which said "Long Live the Reckless and the Brave". In fact, you don't need to be reckless or brave to enjoy the delights of this older, but well maintained, hotel. We stayed for three days in a studio and found that everything we needed was on hand. As it was Christmas time,...

I enjoyed my stay in Spring Hill. My one bedroom apartment was large, well stocked, with modern furniture. The reception and housekeeping staff were more than friendly.
