I quite liked this apartment, there were many positives worth mentioning with only a couple of negatives. Positives: nice pool, spa & Sauna. The room was very clean and modern. Parking was easy and free. Negatives: the gym was small, restaurant closed on weekends with no buffet breakfast only continental. Overall I found this apartment good value for money and...

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...

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...
