Is a Holiday Apartment Right for You?

If you are planning an upcoming Brisbane holiday, then the chances are that you’ll also be looking for accommodation for your stay. While you can always choose to stay in Brisbane hotels, you also have the alternative option of choosing Brisbane holiday apartments.

As someone who offers holiday apartments in Brisbane, today I will tell you more about what you can expect from a holiday apartment. When you’re done reading through this article, you’ll be in a better position to decide whether a holiday apartment is right for you.

Pros of choosing Brisbane holiday apartments

There are many advantages of choosing holiday apartments over hotels in Brisbane. First and foremost, you get to enjoy much more space in a holiday apartment as compared to cramped up hotel rooms. That’s because, with a holiday apartment, you’ll get a full serviced apartment with separate areas for living, dining and sleeping. With holiday apartments, you also get to enjoy much more privacy as compared to hotels.

Also, holiday apartments are suitable for all types of travellers. Whether you’re travelling with your family, a group of mates or a partner, you can choose a 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom or 3 bedroom holiday apartment accordingly.

Holiday apartments like those we offer here at Bridgewater Terraces also come with a fully equipped kitchen. Thanks to this, you can even choose to cook your meals on holiday and save considerable money. Holiday apartments also include most of the entertainment facilities you can expect in hotel rooms. For instance, our holiday apartments at Bridgewater Terraces include Wi-Fi, a TV and a DVD player. Moreover, our holiday apartments are located in resorts that include a swimming pool, spa and sauna and BBQ facilities – all of which you can enjoy free of cost when you stay with us!

Finally, holiday apartments are a far more cost-effective choice as compared to hotels. For a comparable price, you can book an entire holiday apartment instead of a hotel room. Apart from saving on rental, you can further save on food and drinks.

Cons of choosing Brisbane holiday apartments

While holiday apartments offer several advantages, there are certain disadvantages of choosing holiday apartments over hotels. One problem is that you cannot expect housekeeping services at all times in a holiday apartment. With holiday apartments, you’ll need to do the cleaning and washing up yourself, and it can prove to be a chore for some travellers on holiday.

Also, when you choose a Brisbane hotel as your holiday accommodation, you can be certain that you’ll be located in a central area. However, holiday apartments tend to be spread out across the city. If you’re choosing a holiday apartment, you need to pay attention to the location. You don’t want to choose something that puts you far away from the city. However, you won’t face this problem if you choose us at Bridgewater Terraces. Our holiday apartments are located in Kangaroo Point – 1km from Brisbane CBD.
