      Individual guest reviews

      • Great city river view, good restaurants nearby and a very pleasant place to stay. At a reasonable price, friendly staff and very spacious apartments suitable for families. Kitchen very helpful.

        The hotel reception knew nothing of the confirmed booked made through booked, air conditioning was virtually non existent and also the pillows were very hard. The curtains were old, faded and dirty.

      • The location was good, room was spacious and large balcony over looking the river, we absolutely loved Brisbane, and our experience at Hillcrest was a big part of that. The price was great and the staff, were friendly and helpful. The bed was very comfortable and kitchen were huge.

        Enclosed parking area is poorly lit, the mattress is too old.
