I booked this place before leaving Brisbane and it was fingers crossed that it lived up to the reviews. We weren't disappointed the staff were absolutely lovely, receptionist and cleaning crew. We loved our room and the surroundings. Was close to city center and other great eating places.

My friend and I spend one night here prior to flying to Sydney the next morning. We found the apartments to be clean, not posh, but there was a nice pool and restauant. It was close to the airport, and KFC and a takeaway shop were over the road. Staff were very helpful. I would stay there overnight again.

Beautiful rooms and very reasonable for price. Extremely clean and well presented. Restaurant is overpriced and food is below average. Staff very friendly and would recommend for accommodation. Pool is very public and right by restaurant and reception, but nice nonetheless.

Our roller derby team stayed here recently. Rooms were clean, reasonably priced and comfortable. Happy hour in the bar was awesome. Particular thanks to Kimberly who went above and beyond for us, nothing seemed too hard, and we all appreciated the service. Will definitely stay here again next time.

Stayed for 3 nights recently and all was of a high standard. Room was clean and comfortable with free in room cable internet. Buffet breakfast is great and good value (discounted if you pre-book). Evening meals are also of a high standard but pricey.
