Everything is good. Kitchen, draining,room,terrace and so on except security box. The lock is weak so it open easily in spite of locked. But manager said we fix it. Anyway I had a good time. When I go to Brisbane,I choose this accomodation again.

Myself and my two children 9 yo and 14 stayed one night for a brief trip. We arrived late and followed detailed instructions via email. The room had a historic feel, and we were immediately interested in the history of the building. The beds were extremely comfortable and warm, as it was freezing. The bunk beds for the children were...

Hi Jason, Great to hear you enjoyed your stay and even nicer to know that you'll return for longer next time. You will have to make it summer so the children can enjoy the pool deck. Take care, Ann.

Just stayed for 2 nights. Beautiful old home that is very comfortable. Fantastic location near the city but the New Farm area is wonderful for parks and cafes. Our room was very clean and the check in / check out was super smooth. Would highly recommend.

We were near the kitchen and the living room. If you want to sleep in the smell of food it's the best. The swimming pool was dirty. The people enter in and out the room screaming and don't care about the other ones. 3 bathrooms shared with too much people. Positive aspect the kitchen is clean.

Ciara, It is very unfortunate that you feel this way. Staying in a 4 bed dorm is never generally all that quiet as I'm sure you would appreciate. It is also not 5 star accommodation. It is also unfortunate that Brisbane suffered an extreme weather event which left our pool with debris from the mango tree and also a chemical...

Great relaxed vibe at this beautiful homestead. Very clean and the lady who booked us in was very helpful and lovely. It is very basic but just what you need for a clean, room and bed. Close to the Story Bridge and easy walk into Fortitude Valley for the restaurants and night life if that is what you are looking...

This place was a surprise. The location is better than expected with short walks to the ferry, parks, interesting spots and transport links in to the centre. The staff are nice and helpful making this a nice alternative option to your standard hostel for a very reasonable price!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bowen Terrace Accommodation provides affordable and friendly accommodation for travellers and visitors from all over the world. Family owned and operated, Bowen Terrace Accommodation will provide you with that "home away from home" feel in a welcoming and hospitable atmosphere. The style of the house is known as a 'Queenslander' and reflects unique Australian heritage. It features elevated structure with comfortable bedrooms off the long hallway, front and back veranda's, and traditional architecture that allows to experience a part of the typical Queensland lifestyle. When you're relaxing out on the back deck on a warm summer's evening, listening to the mangos drop from the tree onto the roof, you'll see just how laid-back this city can be. Yet you are just minutes from the city lights that illuminate the beautiful Brisbane skyline as well the vibrant Fortitude Valley entertainment area and a host of some of Brisbane's best cafes are along nearby Brunswick Street. ... more   less
