“good location.. needs some TLC and a clean”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2010

i recently stayed for 4 nights in Nov 10', the property is in an excellent location for catching the city cat into the CBD and/or by car, for accessing the airport and city/south Brisbane locations. I arrived late at night and my key was waiting for me as expected which was great. the photos of the beautiful room only relate to room one, i had an upstairs room which, although spacious in size, needed some new carpets and a good lick of paint, not quite what i was expecting at all. The sheets were clean and good facilities in the room (microwave, fridge, tv) but not the cleanest. The help yourself from the galley kitchen (kitchen being an oversight) was not up to much, cereal, a round of toast and some tea, the fridge was filthy and the kitchen also not up to standard. The yard could do with a decent sweep and by the look of it, the BBQ also needed a spruce up. if you want basic accommodation in a good area and your happy to accept more hostel than B&B style, then this is ok. The room is not serviced during your stay at all, no fresh towels or beds made.

My partner and I have stayed in Edward Lodge many times over the last couple of years. The Lodge's hosts, Robyn and Noel, are always welcoming, friendly, warm and helpful. Charming rooms, superb quiet, clean location that allows you to feel part of a community rather than a 'fly-through', interesting local riverside area, great restaurants, cinema a 5-minute drive away, with public transport by both City Cat ferry and bus into main city areas. Highly recommended!!

I greatly enjoyed the location of the lodge. It's in a residential neighborhood that's a short walk from restaurants (including Indian and Thai), a full grocery store, gourmet food store, post office, chemist, and newsagent. Frequent buses to the CBD stop nearby, and New Farm Park is one block away, with clear views of fruit bats at dusk. It's the perfect place for a peaceful rest from sterile hotels, and it was the only place I stayed in 6 Australian cities that actually delivered the free internet service it promised. (Australia is dismal that way; if you're traveling for business, get a 3G USB modem and prepaid SIM because almost none of the wireless will work or be fast enough.)

Minuses: the windows are old, opening outward, and so have no screens. TV noise carries easily in the little courtyard.

We lgot into Brisbane after 9pm, our first trip to Australia. The lodge was about 25 mins from the airport and the owner met us downstairs. Friendly and unassuming, Noel and his wife made us feel very much at home. We got a large room downstairs with two double beds and the kitchen was lovely. Since we stayed 5 nights, I was able to use the washing machine in the laundry room and we got clean linen whenever we asked for it.
Noel was very helfpful with information about places to see and things to do.
Not far from the ferry or the bus, it is the perfect location for those who like a bit of quiet at night and the atmosphere is gentle and the owners are kind and helpful.
Glad we began our trip there and would stay there again if we ever got the opportunity to visit Australia.

We arrived at midnight, Noel was very kind to wake up and helping to set-up the rooms for us (5 person in a family room). The price is good, place is quiet, light breakfast is not bad, we had a home-feel.

The house design is oriental look, it will be very comfortabe when having BBQ at the back yard.
