How to Find Accommodation for Large Groups

Although travelling in a large group is fun, it can be quite a hassle especially when you need to find accommodation for the entire group. If you are planning a trip soon and you are searching for suitable apartment accommodation in Brisbane, there are certain things you need to consider as you conduct your search.

There is no shortage of accommodation for large groups in Brisbane, but it is important to go about your search carefully. If you are travelling with children, there are even more factors to consider. I would go out on a limb and assume that you are searching for accommodation that is both affordable and will allow your group to stay together. With that in mind, here are straightforward steps to help you efficiently find suitable apartment accommodation in Brisbane.

Confirm the numbers of your travelling party

The first thing you need to consider is the number of people you are travelling with. Booking accommodation for large groups can be challenging, but it is easier to get a handle on things if you know exactly how many people you need to accommodate. Confirm the number and then consider everyone’s needs and preferences. In order to determine the number of rooms you actually need, you need to know those who are comfortable sharing a room and those who require their privacy. Little details like that can make a world of difference when you are looking for accommodation.

Get to know everyone’s preferences

You want to ensure that everyone has a great time and one major factor is ensuring that everyone enjoys the accommodation. Before you book an apartment accommodation in Brisbane, get to know the preferences of the group. Will you require Wi-Fi or laundry services? Will you need room service or other such services? It is also important to take into account whether there are any families with kids or babies in your group as their needs will be significantly different from those without little ones.

Figure out your accommodation options

Once you determine the numbers and everyone’s individual preferences, the next step is to figure out what accommodation options are available in Brisbane. Some of the options you have include hotel accommodation. If you are booking hotel accommodation for your large group and you would like to be kept together, you can request for adjoining rooms, connecting rooms, or suites. Either one of these should serve your needs.

If you need a bit more flexibility in your accommodation however, you might want to consider booking apartments where you can all stay together. There are different options you can get when booking apartment accommodation in Brisbane and these include self-contained apartments, such as the 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom  & 3 bedroom apartments we have to offer here at Bridgewater Terraces. Apartments, such as ours, feature kitchens, laundry rooms, separate living and dining areas, and more space.

If you need more privacy for your group, then apartments are certainly your best bet. What attracts people to apartment accommodation is usually that sense of freedom and flexibility that comes with having your own space for the duration of your stay.

Booking your accommodation

Once you have all the necessary information about your accommodation and you’ve made your choice on accommodation options, the next thing to do is to book your apartments.

One important tip to note when you are booking accommodation for a large group is to make your booking early. This will ensure that you all get accommodated in the hotel or apartment of your choice. I would advise that you make your booking several months in advance particularly if you are targeting the high peak holiday season for your holiday. That way you don’t have to deal with the stress and hassle which could arise when you try to book late accommodation for large groups.


Finding accommodation for large groups isn’t as difficult as it may seem. Start by confirming the number of people you will be travelling with and find out everyone’s preferences. Then, look at your accommodation options, taking into consideration that apartments offer more space. Once you have your numbers, preferences and know what type of accommodation to book you will be ready to make a booking. Just be sure to book months in advance.

If you decide that apartment accommodation is the best option for your family or group, then be sure to look at the apartment accommodation we have to offer at Bridgewater Terrace. Our apartments are charming with separate kitchen, dining and living areas. You can get the much needed privacy and flexibility you need to enjoy your holiday.
