Hotels are the number one accommodation option for holidaymakers and business travellers in Brisbane. Brisbane hotels come in all sizes and shapes, and they are spread out all across the city. From budget hotels to upscale hotels, you’ll easily find plenty of choices regardless in the city and beyond.

Hotels offer excellent facilities and amenities and a range of services for guests. While hotels are designed to have a distinct personality of their own, many hotels in Brisbane are part of a larger hotel group that offers a similar accommodation experience.

While self-contained apartments are often overlooked as a Brisbane accommodation option, they are fast becoming a popular accommodation choice for tourists. Self-contained apartments are full-sized serviced apartments that include most of the facilities and amenities you can expect from home. Furthermore, they are often more affordable than hotels, especially over longer stays.

Here, at Bridgewater Terraces, we offer a range of 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom and 3-bedroom self-contained apartments in Kangaroo Point. Thanks to our fantastic central location close to Brisbane CBD and South Bank, our holiday apartments are perfect for both business travellers as well as holidaymakers.

Wi-Fi, entertainment system, fully equipped kitchen, laundry, and air conditioning are standard inclusions of each apartment, and a free secure car parking space is provided with each booking.

Best of all, our self-contained apartments are incredibly affordable– you can book a 1-bedroom apartment for as low as $140 per night for a minimum stay of 7-nights. This is far cheaper than what most hotels and other types of Brisbane accommodation in the area will cost you.

Private Rentals

Private rentals or holiday homes are also quite common here in Brisbane. Every holiday home is distinct, and it is designed to offer you a customized holiday experience. From simple cottages amidst serene surroundings to luxurious hillside lodges and seaside cottages, private rentals come in all shapes and forms. Do note that private rentals are the most expensive accommodation option, so keep an eye on costs if you do choose to go with one.  


There are a number of hostels and backpacker accommodation options available here in Brisbane. Most hostels are well-maintained and offer excellent value for money. While some hostels offer single rooms on request, others provide double, triple and dormitories. Kitchen and bathroom facilities usually need to be shared in hostels.


While motels aren’t the most popular accommodation choice in Brisbane, there are still a number of motels in our city, mostly located along the highways. Most motels include a restaurant and offer only basic accommodation facilities for a low price.


When it comes to finding Brisbane accommodation, you have a number of accommodation options on hand. The most popular choice of accommodation is hotels, which is followed by self-contained apartments. Other accommodation options in our city include private rentals, hostels and motels.
