If you’re planning a family holiday, Brisbane is a great destination to consider. The busy and vibrant city can stimulate children, giving them lots to explore and enjoy. But at the same time, Brisbane also has a lot of natural attractions to give kids an opportunity to appreciate nature. The relaxing riverside is hard to miss, and we’ve got parklands teeming with flora and fauna and a lot of open space for them to frolic in.
While as parents, there is nothing more you’d like to do that to treat your family to an annual holiday, but it is an experience not every can afford. Holidays can be very costly, especially when booking hotels, but when you book serviced apartments in Brisbane, it doesn’t have to be!
In this article, I’ll outline the benefits of booking a serviced apartment for families of four or more, and why you should consider booking one for your next family holiday.
Save Money with Serviced Apartments in Brisbane
Booking a serviced apartment instead of a hotel will help you save money during your trip – in more ways than one!
Most hotel rooms only allow a maximum of 2 guests per room, and therefore charge extra rates for additional guests and additional bedding. Not to mention that hotels have a lot of other hidden charges.
Families, therefore, will get better value for their money when they book accommodation with one of Brisbane’s serviced apartments, which can accommodate all family members with a single fully-inclusive rate. Here at Bridgewater Terraces, our fully serviced 2 bedroom apartments are available for as low as $155 per night, and our 3 bedroom apartments are just $240 per night (7 night stay) with no hidden charges, that’s the price of a single hotel room in the CBD!
The all-inclusive rate already includes the following perks and privileges:
Families staying longer can qualify for lower weekly or monthly rates, an offer not available when booking conventional hotels.
While families may find themselves cramped into a room or staying in separate rooms when booking a hotel, they can enjoy up to 30% more space with an apartment at a price equivalent to a single hotel room. Serviced apartments in Brisbane generally offer 1, 2 and 3 bedrooms to accommodate families of all sizes, plus common living spaces such as a sitting area, kitchen and dining area.
More peace and privacy
Apartments also offer more peaceful, relaxing and private surroundings. While hotels have up to 200 hotel rooms that can accommodate up to 500 people on any given night, there are typically only 30 to 50 apartments in a single apartment block, putting the maximum number of guests a lot lower and much less confined.
Here at Bridgewater Terraces, we even offer scenic views of the Brisbane River to make sure your family will have a truly relaxing stay!
In-room dining privileges
While hotels offer a restricted room service menu, serviced apartments in Brisbane feature their own kitchen and dining areas so guests can prepare their own holiday dinners inside the apartment, dine comfortably as a family and save money on food during their trip.
Many apartments even offer kitchens fully equipped with modern cooking appliances. All these combined will surely give you a home-away-from-home feeling that hotels simply cannot provide.
Free laundry facilities
Hotels typically offer a laundry service, which is a service you have to pay extra for. In order to avoid paying extra and for convenience, tourists generally bring enough clothes to last the entire trip. This is fine if you are staying for a couple of days, but if you book an extended trip staying in a hotel, you don’t have any other choice but to shell out to have your clothes washed.
On the other hand, serviced apartments in Brisbane are already fitted with laundry facilities that are free for guests to use as often as you’d like during your stay. This not only saves you a lot of money, but it also means you can pack light!
Paying less does not necessarily mean you won’t have the same comfort offered by a hotel. Apartments offer free housekeeping service on a weekly basis or upon your request. The service includes a fresh set of linens and towels to keep your family comfortable all throughout your stay.
Most tourists automatically book hotels for their facilities and amenities. Serviced apartments in Brisbane, however, can offer an even better take on the usual facilities offered by hotels. Instead of lounging in an indoor pool, apartment complexes have more space to offer resort-style outdoor pools and outdoor lounge areas so guests can bask under the sun.
If you book any of our apartments here at Bridgewater Terraces, you can freely enjoy our lagoon-style swimming pool, a barbecue area, a workout gym, and our in-house heated spa and sauna. All these at a much lower rate than what hotels would charge. Click here to view our facilities in our photo gallery.
Brisbane is an ideal destination for a family getaway. Thankfully, serviced apartments in Brisbane, such as those here at Bridgewater Terraces, can accommodate families of four or more members at much lower all-inclusive rates, plus you can enjoy the added bonus of more space, less crowds, free facilities and resort-style perks.
