Little luxuries that lift your accommodation in a big way

    Categories: Brisbane Accommodation

Brisbane boasts of having several fantastic accommodation options, including hotels, serviced apartments and other alternative options.

But, to add a little luxury to your holiday, you don’t have to book a 5-star hotel. In fact, there are many luxuries that 5 star hotels cannot offer that other forms of accommodation do. Things like being able to cook your own meals, wash your clothes, enjoy your own space and have the privacy of home are little luxuries we often take for granted and miss whilst on holiday.

If these are what you class as luxuries, then you’ll be pleased to know that you can have them all by choosing Brisbane CBD serviced apartments as your accommodation. Today we’ll look at some of these little luxuries in more detail. Hopefully, I can persuade you to consider booking a serviced apartment over a hotel on your next visit to Brisbane.

1. Being able to cook your own meals

At Bridgewater Terraces, I’ve always had guests tell me that they love cooking their own meals on their Brisbane holiday. This is one of the biggest little luxuries that Brisbane CBD serviced apartments offer that hotel can’t.

Every serviced apartment, including ours, features a fully-equipped kitchen. Ranging from a microwave, a dishwasher, a cooktop and full-size refrigerator and utensils, you’ll find it all in serviced apartments. And because of this, you can enjoy home cooked meals every night of the week. Moreover, just think of the money you’ll save not having to dine out for every meal!

2. Being able to wash your own clothes


Another little luxury that Brisbane CBD serviced apartments offer is that you can do your laundry in-house. At Bridgewater Terraces, our apartments include washing machines and dryers, allowing you to wash your own clothes on your holiday. This means that you can always have the luxury of wearing clean clothes – and you can pack fewer clothes for your holiday.

While some hotels offer laundry facilities, typically these are paid laundry services. This means that your clothes will be collected and delivered to you only at certain specific times. You won’t have the luxury of washing your clothes whenever you want.

3. Being able to enjoy your own space

Perhaps the biggest little luxury offered by Brisbane CBD apartments is that you can enjoy your own space. Unlike hotel rooms, even the smallest of serviced apartments offers more space. Moreover, serviced apartments contain separate bedrooms and bathrooms, dining and living spaces and sometimes, even a balcony! On the other hand, every hotel room offers a single living space – no matter how luxurious or grand it may be.

At Bridgewater Terraces, our serviced apartments come in all configurations including 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments. By staying with us, you can enjoy a leisurely and relaxed holiday without ever feeling cramped for space.

4. Having the privacy of home even on a holiday

Have you every longed for more privacy on your holiday? Well, you can if you choose Brisbane CBD serviced apartments as your accommodation. Every serviced apartment is a fully self-contained unit; therefore, they offer complete privacy and freedom.

While hotels in Brisbane CBD claim to offer great privacy, it doesn’t come close to what serviced apartments have to offer. In a serviced apartment, you won’t be disturbed by room service or in-house staff. However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t avail of these services when you need them. You can request for housekeeping services by contacting the front desk at any time (though, it may come at an extra cost).


If you’re a holidaymaker who enjoys little luxuries in life, consider Brisbane CBD serviced apartments rather than hotels. There are many little luxuries that serviced apartments offer, some of which you won’t even find in Brisbane’s best hotels. These include being able to cook your own meals, being able to wash your own clothes, being able to enjoy your own space and having the privacy of home even on a holiday.

So, if you’re idea of luxury is the same as mine consider booking a serviced apartment for your next Brisbane holiday – hopefully right here at Bridgewater Terraces. We’re located just 1km from Brisbane CBD and our holiday apartments are packed with splendid amenities and facilities. You can enjoy a truly luxurious holiday by staying with us.
