We were disapointed in the standard of this motel, granted they were busy as Adele was playing nearby at the Gabba stadium. But we were disappointed how small the room and the bed was, very cramped. There was cigarette ash on the window sill when we arrived in a "no smoking room" and a dead cockroach in the bathroom. on...

Great location and handy to a number of restaurants, coffee shops and hotels. Easy walking to The Gabba and bus station as well as Kangaroo Point cliffs - great for photos especially at night. Very clean and comfortable. Staff were lovely. Only disappointment was lack of parking. I booked a spot but they were all taken. We were packed in...

We stayed at Southern Cross for 3 nights, we were walking distance to everything which made the location a standout for us. Our room was updated, spacious, clean and very affordable. The staff were friendly and proactive. What a pleasant surprise this getaway was without breaking the bank. I would definitely stay here again.

For $120 a night, on a night where there was a game at the Gabba and other places increased their prices, we thought this was great value. The room was very neat and clean, much cleaner than some places we've stayed. Air-con was ice cold and very effective, even on such a hot day and evening. The balcony had a...

We had a 2brm apartment which came as a 1brm with interconnecting door to a studio room. We did have the option of getting a 1 bdrm with a small hallway to a studio (all private) but as teenager would have been in the 'studio' apartment, I decided that it would be more family friendly with interconnecting door 'open'.

“ask exactly what room(s) you are getting and 'where'. Ask if anything is on at the GABBA during your stay as it gets 'very' busy.”
  • Kitchen utensils only.
  • 2seater lounge for a 2 bdrm apartment.
  • That view out the studio window is a walkway for the public. Hence the drapes are always closed.
