... which pointed to the "Town Centre" pointed to a closed convenience store, a small pizza restaurant and a jetty to drop your boat in the sea.
We dropped in on the pizza place and had a friendly chat with the owner. When we asked about Wi-Fi availability, he told us to visit a tavern about a five minute drive. After sharing a veggie pizza, we headed to tavern to see if we could get on-line.
The guy at the tavern told us Wi-Fi was available but only from a small parking ...
... to do to waste your pocket money on. Australia for us doesn’t need this kind of entertainment, there are so many other amazing spots you could have a family holiday and as long as the kids have some sports gear they should never really get bored, consumerism is unfortunately king and not every one likes to relax in the same way I guess.
We hoped this was an anomaly, there is nowhere else like the GC in Australia so it would be hard to imagine Queensland deciding ...

After passing Moreton Island and out into the open sea, it started to get dark so this was a good time to return to our cabin to unpack and hang our clothes up.The cabin was quite roomy with plenty of storage space to accommodate our clothes etc. All 3 cases went underneath the bed. A small bathroom of course but sufficient. The Balcony was big enough for 2 recliner chairs and a small round plastic table and throughout the cruise we spent many an ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Quay West Suites Brisbane
Great location and fabulous view
Loved the location of this hotel, it's central but not right in the hustle and bustle of the town, with a fabulous view of the river and the botanic gardens. The shops are only a ten minute walk away at most and there are lots of restaurants nearby. The rooms themselves are spacious with a separate kitchen and small lounge. There's a good pool and small gym to work out in. There's also great, secure parking right under the building that can be accessed day or night. The reception staff go out of their way to make you comfortable. The only thumbs down would be to the restaurant at breakfast time, the service was non-existent (but may be it was just a busy/off day for them). We're going back next week.
These apartments had a 5 star appeal to them. The lobby was very nice with marble floors and very modern looking.
Good location for Botanists
Loved this hotel. We really relaxed after a 23hr flight, jet lagged etc. The rooms are all you will require to recover and explore Brisbane. The service was excellent and unobtrusive. Botanic Gardens situated opposite are a treat after travelling. It is easy to catch a ferry to downtown Riverside or Southbank with their numerous places to eat. Breakfast at the Quay was not too exciting but sufficient. Room service and the general attitude of the staff to help, when asked, was excellent. Evening meals were also very good if you preferred to chill out.
Loved the location and the stay. We would return without reservation.
Having spent four days in the Quay West Suites, the setting next to the Botanic Gardens made the stay a double pleasure.The rooms were fitted and furnished to an excellent standard. They were spacious , clean and comfortable in every aspect. The staff at reception were more than helpful and efficient and every request was responded to immediately. The attitude of the staff was that nothing was to much bother even helping with the booking of rooms for our ongoing trip.
Just the best in Brisbane
Quay West was just the best place to stay by a mile. Some of my business colleagues stayed in a nearby hotel (which shall be nameless) and they were emerald green with envy for those of us who opted to spend the five days in Quay West. The suites are spacious and luxurious, the views are terrific and the position is perfect: in the heart of city, near the river and right opposite the peace of the Botanic Gardens. All the comfort of your own apartment combined with all the services of a top class hotel. I can't wait to go back there, on a proper holiday with my partner.
Wonderful place !
We have visited Brisbane several times and always stayed in a traditional hotel. This time we stayed at the Quay West serviced apartments and had a wonderful time. We had a one bedroomed self contained apartment with seperate living and dining area, large balcony overlooking the botanical gardens, laundry facilities in room and modern bathroom with walk in shower and bath tub. The apartments were spotlessly clean and the staff were great. We felt like we were in a 4* hotel. The apartments also had lovely heated swimming pool, spa and small fitness room. We would certainly recommend Quay West to anyone and would not hesitiate to stay here again.
My family had a great time staying at this hotel. Rooms were very quiet and the staff friendly and helpful. Proximity to the Botanical Gardens was a plus for small kids. Just a great hotel.
Perfect City pad
Excellent in so many ways. The location was good near the gardens, river, shops and Southbank all within walking distance. The apartment had everything you need with comfortable beds, quality chattels and home away from home with a good view of the city on the 16th floor. Our children enjoyed the pool. The staff were excellent and surprised me by remembering my name, were full of knowledge and very efficient. We will look no further for our next visit to Brisbane. Plus, they have parking with the rental car pick up for Hertz and Avis within walking distance.
Best views of Brisbane
What a GREAT hotel. My family of 4 stayed in a two bedroom suite on the 16th floor. The suite was very large with exquisite views over the Brisbane river and parklands. The hotel had just been through a refub and the suite was very modern looking. The staff are very friendly and offer first class service. This was by far the BEST hotel we stayed at during our trip to Australia.
Stayed 4 nights in July. Stayed in upper floor one bedroom suite.
Impressed very highly by quality of furnishing and artwork. Felt more like a city flat rather than a hotel. Bed seriously comfortable. Loved the large balcony. Total privacy and lovely views over botanical gardens meant we never shut the curtains.
