    The convenience to the city centre and public transport

    Bathroom was very cramped. Also no facewasher or shampoo, conditioner or body gel/wash. No air-conditioning in the bedroom only in the main living area.

    Great

    I loved it's views and the cleanliness of the apartment. The spacious rooms were great.

    I was dissapointed with directions for car parking. soemthing written up properly would be great not a sketch with no street names! also being billed twice for the room was a bit disconcerting. I hope that works out. Won't know for several days until the bank handles the details

    Perfect

    It was gr8 to be in a city where it only took 5 minutes to walk to a supermarket, food court and a shopping mall that had everything for myself, my son and all the families staying with us.

    It would have been too much to stay at the apartment and also pay daily parking for a car. A car was esssential as we were there to watch a basketball carnival at Auchenfower so people had to stay out of town and pick us up to avoid $20 dollars a day. It would have beenn ideal if you had a weekly reduced rate but having said that it all worked well and we had a great week, thanks Lisa Owen-Thomas

    Very centrally located to the Queen Street Mall and its associated shops & businesses. Staff are very obliging & most friendly.

    Nothing......very good value for money whether using a one or two bedroom apartment.

    Perfect

    The location was excellent, right in the city centre and the views from the 31st floor were fantastic. Nice, clean, comfortable and modern apartments which were reasonably priced for the inner city of Brisbane

    Parking is a little pricey, $25 per night if you want to use their secure undercover car park. You may as well budget that into your stay too because good luck finding a park on the street!

    Nice

    Spacious Rooms and good views of the river

    Rooms could do with a fresher look, coat of paint and replacement carpets! Small amount of laundry detergent should be provided and tea/coffee replacement everyday.

    clean and tidy

    You have a potential fire hazard (the clothes dryers have a inlet vent at the back and they need to be checked and clean every couple of months ) ours was totaly blocked, i cleaned it all was well (plus they use a lot more electricity,being inaficient). drop of temp parking to pick up the keys and check in a real prob.

    Nice

    The room we was allocated did not have the view of the City or the gardens as stated on website,In fact it had a view of a wall.However we complained and our room was changed to one with a City view.The web site was misleading.
