Our first trip to Australia involved a visit to Brisbane where we stayed at the Central Dockside Apartment Hotel. Two-bedroom unit provided a great jumping off location for access to the City and many attractions with a ferry stop in front of the hotel. The unit provided microwave, fridge, pool and parking for a nominal fee. An adequate continental breakfast...

First impressions mean everything. Unfortunately the reception staff were not welcoming or friendly. Room was dated but clean and comfortable. Breakfast - what breakfast- 3 people booked into the room but only breakfast for one, absolutely false advertising. Warning - never lose your key. You will be confronted by the said again unfriendly reception staff, told to go outside and...

Hi Ducknflo, Thank you for taking the time to write your recent experience with us at Central Dockside Apartment Hotel.

We booked a 2 bedroom apartment for the Adele concert when we bought our tickets. We paid $266 for 4 people, which was great value. The rooms are spacious with 1 ensuite & 1 bathroom/laundry and we had river views. The foyer needs an update and has a musty smell but overall it meet all of our needs. We walked...

We live in the Brisbane area; however had a function in the city, we stayed in a one bed apartment in this building for a very reasonable price. reception/check in was pretty smooth and painless, the room was dated but clean and tidy, the views were great, across the river. Funny thing is you only get one breakfast with the...

We came to stay here for the Adele concert and were after something a bit nice as a treat. We were instead greeted with some early 80s decor, paper thin carpet on which I was hesitant to put my bare feet, and a musky smell that was masked with some hideous chemical cleaning product that reminded me of my childhood...

The room differs greatly from the rooms advertised online. If you see a 4.5 star review it truly DOES not represent that. Its more like a 2.5 star. If you are able to rent a 2 br for under $200 then its an appropriate fee for the spaciousness of the apartment and working a/c facilities. Otherwise, if you were like...

Hello Nudels, I apologise your experience with us was less than enjoyable. It is correct that as a strata title property we are placed in the predicament that we can only make suggestions and guide our owners in the way of upgrading furniture and amenities to a certain extent. We want nothing more as hospitality professionals than for our guests...

Check in was OK but lacked a professional touch. Air con would not turn down and we had to get staff to adjust. Breakfast was included but only for one person. Our apartment had that smell of disinfectant used when smokers have previously been in occupation. This stayed around for a whole day with both balcony doors open at all...

Great spot on a down river bend past the story bridge. Good size apartments with large balcony. Some rooms more modern than others. Quiet location with river or city views. Free ferry stops out front of apartments, convenience store and restaurants nearby. Funky part of Kangaroo Point, with dining, within walking distance, we will be back.
