I enjoyed doing it otherwise I would have stopped somewhere when time was getting in my way. Often the only way to keep going was to write in “Word” as internet was not always available or extremely slow. A quick and short connection in a station hall, coffee shop, Mac ...
Another fine day. There is a free ferry service called the City Hopper which goes up and down the river zig zagging from one side to the other. We got on at Eagle Street Pier, headed up stream and got off at South Bank. This area has lovely parklands with a promenade, lots of cafes and a man-made beach equipped with life guard! This area was developed after the 1988. Expo, a 6 month ...

Benny and I then spent the next couple of hours having a few drinks and watching a couple of movies to kill time. We jumped in a cab at 8, and headed back to the airport. We had a drama free check in and a meal before boarding. The flight was pretty uneventful and as you can imagine we spent the majority of it sleeping (well Benny did, I couldnt!) Arrival into Singapore was about 5am Sunday morning......

We had lunch at Pony where we sat on the table with a view of the kitchen. A nice meal and interesting to watch it being cooked. We then headed up to the bus station to meet Jamie ...

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.
