Things to know before booking Brisbane accommodation

While Brisbane accommodation isn’t as expensive as it was around Christmas and the holidays, you should still be cautious and take your time in booking accommodation – and not book it simply because it is offered at a good rate. As the manager of Bridgewater Terraces, which offers Brisbane accommodation at Kangaroo Point, I’ve heard my fair share of stories from guests who have turned to us only after being let down or disappointed with their original choice of accommodation. Hopefully by following these tips below, you will review all important elements of your favoured Brisbane accommodation before you proceed to book.

Brisbane accommodation

Here are some pointers on what you should be aware of before booking Brisbane accommodation in an apartment.

Compare rates for the best price

Before you jump into booking Brisbane accommodation, you should first look to compare rates across different providers so that you get the best price. It is often the case that you can negotiate for a better price, simply by informing an accommodation provider of the rates offered by competitors. While this may sound a little strange, the tactic works out quite well across many accommodation providers. Here, at Bridgewater Terraces, we offer incredibly affordable Brisbane accommodation, starting at just $180 per night, which is far cheaper than what hotels in Brisbane CBD have to offer.

Read the reviews

Brisbane accommodation providers will claim to offer clean and comfortable rooms, but you shouldn’t take their word for it. Reading reviews left by previous guests is the best way to determine if a hotel or a serviced apartment will match up to your expectations. You can find a lot of reviews on hotel review sites such as TripAdvisor and Agoda, which will allow you to get a brutally honest opinion of what accommodation actually offers. Bridgewater Terraces is proud to state that we consistently receive positive reviews and ratings from customers for offering clean and luxurious stays at our serviced apartments; you can read past guest’s reviews on TripAdvisor here.

Check if parking is extra

While many hotels and serviced apartments will offer you a parking space, you must look to check if there are any extra charges for parking. If a hotel or serviced apartment doesn’t offer you parking, then you will face even more hassles in finding a new parking spot every day, or be forced to pay up to $50 per night to park in the hotels car parp. If you’re planning on visiting Brisbane in your vehicle, you must check for parking amenities. Here, at Bridgewater Terraces, we offer free parking to all our guests and all charges are included in the rates itself.

Check the location

It is also important that you check the exact location of your Brisbane accommodation. While most hotels and serviced apartments will claim to be conveniently located, you will find that they are usually located in busy roads with lots of bustling activity and this is the last thing you want on your holiday. You need to check and make sure to book your accommodation at a place which is located away from the busy roads, yet close enough to the main city. Bridgewater Terraces is located at Kangaroo Point, which is 1 km away from the busy CBD area. By staying with us, you will enjoy a peaceful and relaxing stay, while still being close to the hub of Brisbane.

Find out home many people are allowed in the apartment

Finally, before you check in, you should find out how many people are allowed in the apartment. Many accommodation providers will charge you extra for having more than the specified number of people in the apartment and it is always a good idea to find out beforehand the maximum number of people allowed in an apartment. At Bridgewater Terraces, we allow a maximum of 2 guests in our 1 bedroom apartments, 6 guests in our 2 bedroom apartments and 7 guests in our 3 bedroom apartments.

Now that you have an idea of what to look for before booking Brisbane accommodation in serviced apartments, you can go ahead and finalise your bookings. You will find that we, at Bridgewater Terraces, offer the most affordable serviced apartments in Brisbane, while also adhering to the highest standards of clean, comfortable and luxurious living. You will definitely not go wrong by choosing to stay with us.


Before booking your Brisbane accommodation, you must look to compare rates across different accommodation providers, check out past guest’s reviews, check the exact location of the accommodation, check parking costs and also determine the maximum number of people allowed in an apartment. By following these steps, you will not be in for any unpleasant surprises during your Brisbane visit.
