Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely comfortable room with a Queen & 2 x singles. Was basic but that’s all we needed as we were just in town to watch the Foo Fighters. Price was right and was close to some handy shops. Didn’t use the pool but looked okay! Free parking as well. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend for a short stay.

Dirtiest 2 bedroom apartment ever, nothing like the nice phot shopped images on their website. Stayed here for business as close to Qsac. Our group had 6 rooms in the bottom apartments and all were filthy. Dusty, mouldy, greasy. My bed had small spiders that just kept appearing complained to reception about state of room and spiders multiple times they never even came to look in 3 nights. Bathroom had hair in all corners and dust. Floor to ceiling dirty. Single Bed had a stain on the turn down part very visible and a rogue small hair. Like those sheets never got changed from past guests. Other two beds also had random hair, when I asked for clean sheets even the clean sheet had hair on them. As I was given the sheets to change myself! Terrible service.

We booked here as it was close to the Basketball for the weekend. Check in process was easy. Parking was good. However, the room was dated and dirty. I don't mind old, but I do mind if the place is not clean. We found a dirty pair of socks on the lounge window sill, someone else's shirt under the bathroom vanity and the amount of dust caused severe hayfever in most of my family. The general cleanliness was terrible. The main bed was nice and comfy, but my teenager found random hair through his bed. Fairly disappointed in this stay.

Stayed for 2 nights. The check in process was easy & pleasant. I was surprised by the quietness although it's on a main road. The room was clean & tidy and better than I expected. The bed was extremely comfortable. I'll be back as it's 15 minutes to West End. The price is competitive & across the road from a good group of shops & next door to a decent Chinese/Malaysian restaurant.

Having read some of the recent reviews, I was expecting to find a poorly presented hotel. Not so! It's such a pity when inexperienced reviewers feel it is their duty to nit-pick and trash a business trying to do a good job for its customers. Anyway, enough of that. We stayed at Sunnybank Star for 6 nights and found the room very spacious and comfortable. There is plenty of parking in a secure area. What impressed us was the price for a hotel located in reasonable proximity of the Brisbane CBD. We used the 150 bus just outside the hotel for our trips into town. The room was well fitted, good bathroom (yes, dated but clean). The room has 12 power outlets - a first for us with so many devices, chargers, electric toothbrush etc these days. The bed was comfortable with good lighting in the room. The ancillary equipment met all our needs. The house and reception staff were all very helpful and polite and made our stay in Brisbane a pleasant one. Well done Sunnybank Star. We'll definitely be back. Recommend!

This two bedroom unit would have to be the dirtiest and run down place we have ever paid for. From the dust and dirt on wall, curtains floors and stairs to dirt kitchen area, blinds, fridge with hair inside it, rusted out shelves in the fridge. One of the glasses my wife drank from had a sharp edge on it. The stair case to the up stair area have looked like someone had spilled a milk over the rails of the stairs. The bathroom had mould in the corner of the shower and is very run down. To top it all off the could only watch two tv channels due to bad reception. I don’t normally leave bad reviews, but when it’s this bad and you paid good money you would expect better. Old is ok if it’s clean, fresh and has a comfortable bed.

Ordinarily I would have given this 3 star more than likely but due to the price I could give it 4 stars. I think I paid around $80 a night for which just outside Brisbane is immensely cheap. It was clean and bathroom was ok. Secured free parking and close to local shops. The place was very quiet. It was old and but for the price couldn’t complained. Staff receptionist was nice and check in couldn’t have been easier. Overall for the price I would stay again.

Room large and clean. Everything we needed for a one night stay. Bathroom included good quality products, tea and coffee making facilities were provided, and air conditioning was quiet and pleasant for sleeping.Was handy to have table and chairs if we were eating there. No noise from traffic in the street nearby.

Overpriced & the star rating is not right for the quality of the rooms. Rooms require refurbishing. I have always stayed here whenever I am in Brisbane. Won’t ever be staying here again. Attempted to talk to Receptionist & this was a waste of time
