As the manager of Bridgewater Terraces, I realise that some people may find it tough to find family-friendly accommodation in the city. But, you need not worry. Today I’ll offer some handy tips on how to find family-friendly accommodation in Brisbane hotels and apartments that will make your holiday even more enjoyable.

1. Think about alternative accommodation

While Brisbane hotels are by far the most popular type of accommodation in the city, they are however not very family (or budget) friendly. A far better option is to book a Brisbane apartment for your stay – such as those we offer here at Bridgewater Terraces. By choosing 1, 2 or 3 bedroom holiday apartments over choosing Brisbane hotels, you will be able to enjoy a lot more for less. You will be able to save on your accommodation costs and you can also enjoy living in spacious apartments with all modern amenities and facilities at your fingertips.

2. Choose accommodation that offers you quality relaxation

A family holiday in Brisbane means exploring South Bank, indulging in water sports and taking part in the adventure and outdoor activities. However, all of this will certainly leave you exhausted at the end of the day. As such, you must make sure to book accommodation which offers you quality relaxation. Here, at Bridgewater Terraces, you can come back to accommodation that will refresh, relax and rejuvenate you. Whilst, not a family-friendly Brisbane hotel, we certainly are a family-friendly resort, which offers pools, spas, gymnasiums for you to enjoy. Moreover, we are located at Kangaroo Point, just 1km away from South Bank and the CBD. And after a long day exploring the city, you can come back and relax in the tranquillity of your apartment overlooking the Brisbane River.

3. Pick children friendly locales

When it comes to finding family-friendly Brisbane hotels, it’s less about what the hotel offers and more about where it is located. A holiday resort which offers your family all the amenities but is located far away from the city is no good. Neither is a hotel which is located close to nightclubs. The appropriate accommodation is one which is centrally located in Brisbane and close to tourist attractions. In this regard, Bridgewater Terraces is perfect for your family holiday. We are located in Kangaroo Point, right next to Brisbane CBD and you will be within walking distance from many of the attractions that your kids will love. Kangaroo Point is one of the best places to be in – the Story Bridge Hotel is just 200m away from us, while Eagle Street Pier is a 7-minute ferry ride away. Moreover, there are several other family destinations where you’re sure to have a great time. Take your kids to these places and you’ll be happy that you chose Kangaroo Point for your accommodation.

4. Do some online research

If you’re planning a holiday, take time to do some online research for the best family-friendly Brisbane hotels. There are several travel sites which specifically cater to parents and by going through these; you can find good information on family-friendly hotels. You will also come across user reviews of hotels on such sites, which will give you a good indication of what to expect from your accommodation. Check sites like TripAdvisor, Booking.com and Wotif.com.au and you will soon realise that Bridgewater Terraces is perfect for your family holiday. We offer great facilities and amenities which will make your family holiday in Brisbane much more enjoyable and memorable.

5. Check the room configuration

Wouldn’t it be great if your holiday accommodation configuration was just like home – with separate rooms and bathrooms for the kids, while parents have a room to themselves? Unfortunately, Brisbane hotels are not configured this way. However, you will be thrilled to know that our apartments are! We offer 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom apartments with multiple bathrooms, living spaces with entertainment options and fully equipped kitchens. Why book Brisbane hotels with cramped up rooms? When you choose to stay with us, you can enjoy a spacious holiday experience, with all the comforts of living at home!
