The Kingsford Riverside Inn is a marvellous place to stay and the view of the river is breath taking. The location is amazing with a very peaceful environment. Located, directly on the river, this hotel offers great inexpensive accommodation with good conveyance facilities to the airport and the centre of the city. The location is very accessible to the primary...

Hello Sophia, Thank you for your kind review. We're just a budget hotel, but we do have good facilities - fast, free Internet, free breakfast, comfy rooms with crisp clean sheets, and with the ConXions shuttle it's pretty simple to get to and from the airport. Glad you had a good stay, and hope to see you sometime again! Regards,...

I really enjoyed my stay here considering the price. It’s very rare to find a nice budget friendly accommodation within the city that accepts pets. The location is very accessible to the primary tourist destinations in Brisbane and the view of the river is breathtaking. Its a few minutes from the airport and the staff are very friendly and accommodating....

Thank you Xianeza. As far as we know we're the only ones in the area which accepts pets. We do limit them to the special pet room, and we have a nominated ground floor room in case of double bookings.. It's our pleasure to look after our guests. We've met many caring pet owners, who appreciate our very humble but...

If you do not mind sharing a bathroom and want a clean but cheap place to stay near the airport this place is great. The room is clean, has a little washbasin, TV drawers etcpillows and blankets, jug and even little packets of biscuits. You even get breakfast included for $100. Free wifi too. It is across the road from...

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.

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...

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...

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...
