The place is beautifully decorated, spotless, and with comfortable bed, quality breakfast and Tim's genuine enthusiasm to tell you everything you need to know about the buses, the excellent free CityHopper ferry,...

The Collingwood is a real gem in the lovely Brisbane suburb of Paddington. It is well located within an easy walk of great shops, cafes and restaurants. It is a pleasant walk to the CBD or a short taxi ride. It is stylish and comfortable. The beds are bliss and it is lovely to have the ability to leave a...

A truly wonderful and unique place. We had a very nicely decorated and stylish room and bathroom, with an expert eye for detail. Perfection pure. Superbly organised. Nothing excessive, but everything there and all in a perfect state (everything looked as if recently refurbished). A place to fall in love with. An excellent and generous breakfast. And some very useful...

My sister in law recommended this B&B to us as we have to do quite a few short stays in Brisbane. What a find! So conveniently positioned, walk to cafes, restaurants, boutiques shops and Paddingtons antique hub. 10 minute drive to Wesley Hospital (ask Tim for the directions to avoid lights and busy roads)and 10 minutes to Brisbane's CBD.

Tim & Rachel are fantastic hosts- you will not find a better place to stay in Brisbane if you're after a B&B.

I recently stayed at the Collingwood for 5 nights in May. I wanted a break from the usual inner city hotels that has become the norm for me when travelling. I wanted something totally different from that. I went in search of a boutique B&B and came across the Collingwood on Trip Advisor. They haven't got to the first position...
