Cairo, Egypt
Reviewed 27 March 2015

We arrived late, thus chose something close to the airport and Kingsford Riverside Inn was in the best location for us. Clean simple and quite. Everything we required to have a good rest. We like dthe breakfast and the hospitable staff. Would have stayed longer but needed to travel further to Sydney.

Honiara, Solomon Islands
Reviewed 27 March 2015

Working in Honiara, Solomon Islands means transiting through Brisbane often being the only good international connecting point. And it also means overnighting on many occasions. I have tried other hotels near the airport but on this visit found the Kingsford Riverside Inn the most attractive for more than one reason. First I just sent them an email for reservation and...

Thank you Krishnan, We're glad to be of assistance. We usually have some younger people helping out, and of course they practically live on the computer! Glad you had a good rest and looking forward to seeing you again, Regards, Charles.

I stayed there last week for 2 nights for $200. The price was absolutely fantastic for the room and the service you get at this lovely and familiar hotel. The location was great as well. It is located on the main street, but you really can't hear any of the noises. You can reach the city in 15 minutes with...

This hotel offers great affordable accommodation with good transport links to the city centre through the citycat and local buses.The staff are friendly and welcoming especially Thomas who could not be more helpful. I arrived very early on Saturday morning on a flight from Scotland and Thomas was ready to greet me. Even when I asked to do laundry at...

Charles D, Owner at Kingsford Riverside Inn, responded to this review

I hardly know what to say... You didn't notice then, that the set top box was connected to a 32 inch flat screen Plasma TV set, with perfect reception, perfect sound, and a perfect picture? You could have stayed in other places in Hamilton/Ascot area and paid about $280 per night, then paid extra for your internet, and more again...

We stayed here for a night when we had a layover in Brisbane and an early flight out in the morning. It was great. We checked in after 10PM (I did ring to let them know we'd be checking in late) and it was no problem. A lovely man met us at reception, I think his name was Thomas? and...

Thank you Victoria. We generally try to hang on to meet you if you're arriving late - we like to show people to their room and make sure they know about breakfast, the wifi and that arrangements for onward shuttles/coaches/taxis are ok. I know it's a bit old-fashioned, but it's also the hospitable thing to do. We appreciate your kind...

As a regular contributor to Tripadvisor this is one of my more unusual reviews as I am doing this on behalf of myself & my 17 year old daughter.

Hello Denise, thank you for your kind review! We do get teen groups every now and then, for concerts, Supernova, the odd swimming team, (Fortitude valley Olympic pool is just round the corner) junior cricket clubs, and they're invariably lively, outgoing and fun! Our building has a comfortable and homely feeling, and the informal atmosphere helps them to feel at...

The Kingsford Riverside Inn is an amazing Place to stay. It is great Located, directly on The River and very close to The breakfast creek Hotel, to The City and to the airport. The Bus Station is in Front of The Hotel, so you can explore Brisbane easily. The hotel has free wifi and free breakfast in the morning and...

We booked one night here. We only needed a bed for a few hours after a long flight from the UK before our connection to Auckland. Upon arrival we realised that we had left the key to one of our suitcases 1000's of miles away in the UK. Disaster! Michael (I think? It was late and I was jet lagged)...

Thank you Mufuz, appreciate your input! Those vertical blinds in our rooms will slide along to block the entire window area, and they actually rotate through 180 degrees, so you can have as much (or as little) exposure to the street as you would wish! Unless you're on the ground floor, the angle is bit steep for anyone to see...

We got off to a very bad start as we arrived for a 3 night stay here. Our arrival time was 0050 and we had booked pick-up from the airport through Agoda.

Hello Jack, Thank you for your balanced report. Certainly arriving in the middle of the night after wasting time looking for non-existent transport doesn't do a lot for anyone's morale! We make no secret of being a budget hotel, but we're a good one! As you discovered, we're quite comfy and relaxed, and although basic, we do have all the...
