Look the place is not the ritz as mngt says. It's shared bathrooms and it's utilitarian . And it's clean and probably close to as cheap as it gets for near to Brisbane city centre. One thing. I found it more expensive to book direct on the phone. In fact I had to quote the online price and then they...

This place isn't even worth one star, it is disgusting, dirty, bugs on the bed, toilet behind a shower curtain, this was a pet friendly rooms, which was like an underground bunker. No sink, just a laundry tub which was filthy anyway.

The purpose of the Pet Friendly room is so that people can bring their pet with them. We make it abundantly clear that it is a very basic facility, but it is the only place we are aware of in Brisbane where you can stay with bring your pet. For this reason we have a lino floor, not a carpet....

Stay clear away. The airport should not be recommending this hotel. Public bathroom and showers. While this place was tidy, it is actually very run down and old - the beds were almost caving in. The pictures are deceiving and makes it look way better than it actually is. I've stayed at better looking hostels and you can get a...

We are a budget hotel and we have never claimed to be anything else. Yes our facilities are shared, but as you have noticed, they are kept very clean and tidy. We are also located in one of the best locations in Brisbane, convenient to the city and the airport. It is surprising to have a negative comment about our...

We traveled from Queensland to Canberra and were looking to stay in Brisbane on our way home to catch up with family and friends, as we were travelling with our dog we needed a place to take our dog, trouble is we were travelling with a Labrador not a small pocket rocket. This was no issue for Kingsford Riverside Inn....

I had booked a pet friendly family room two weeks in advance. When we arrived I was told that they had no pet friendly family rooms available and had to pay for a second room. The hallway smelled like stale beer and is dimly lit. The room was ok, nothing special but adequate for what we needed. The air conditioner...

This booking was for two people which is fine for the pet friendly room. However, four people turned up and expected us to put them in a room designed and advertised for two. Hence the extra cost. We do not claim to be anything but a budget hotel, but our standards are high and as the owners and managers are...

I had a great stay at the Kingsford Riverside Inn. The view onto the River is nice and everyone working there was very helpful and friendly. And to my surprise, WiFi was fast and completely free ;-) Thank you! Will stay there again.

There are no other places as close to Brisbane city that are pet friendly. The room wasn't the ritz, but it doesn't advertise to be. Clean room, undercover park and if you get 'the flat' had a shower (which was amazing) and toilet in the room. Service was lovely. Offered free breakfast however my partner and I were a bit...

Hello Andrew and Candice, Thank you for your kind review. It's not the Ritz as we said, and it's great that you appreciate that... The great thing is that you and your pet can be together, and we try to place as few restrictions on your stay as we possibly can! Hope to see you again, Regards, Charles.

Low price and accommodation is clean and acceptable for an overnight stay when you need a location close to the airport. Price includes breakfast with toast, cereal and juice. Bonus! Beds are comfortable. Everything works as expected. Parking limited so I parked in a nearby street. No drama.

Hello Mark, thank you for taking the time to review us. Our parking is limited, but happily we don't often have any major overflow. We do have a few backup areas we use which are close. If there's ever a problem our friendly staff will do what they can to help! Really appreciate your comment that everything works as expected....
