FAQs about Kangaroo Point accommodation

Tourists love Brisbane and they’re given many options in terms of areas to stay when visiting the city. Undoubtedly, Inner City destinations such as South Bank and the CBD are by far the most popular areas for tourists. However, what if I tell you that there are other destinations – just 1km from the city – that offer much cheaper accommodation?

One such destination is Kangaroo Point – which is where you’ll find our holiday apartments, Bridgewater Terraces, apartments.

Now, you may not have heard of Kangaroo Point, so I understand if you have reservations about booking Kangaroo Point accommodation. But to ease your concerns, below is a list of FAQs about what you can expect from Kangaroo Point accommodation.

These FAQs specifically relate to our accommodation here at Bridgewater Terraces, but will give you an overall picture of accommodation in the area.

1. What should I know about check-in, payments, cancellation and other policies?


This is probably the most asked question that I face here at Bridgewater Terraces. Our standard check-in time is 2pm, while our standard check-out time is 10am. However, we also allow afterhours check-ins and late check-outs. Just make sure to place a request with us beforehand. If you’re planning an early check-out, make sure that your account has been settled prior to your departure.

Also, we will require a security bond upon your check-in. You can use your credit card for this. This security bond is not to be confused with a deposit. We accept full payment upon your arrival if you haven’t already pre-paid through a booking site.

Our pre-payment and cancellation policies vary depending on room types. You’ll need to check the specific policies of your required room before making pre-payment or a cancellation.

We allow children of all ages in our holiday apartments. Children up to the age of 2 years will be provided with a cot, while any other person will be provided with an extra bed. Charges for additional guests are $35 per person per stay. Do note that extra beds and cots are only provided upon request and need to be confirmed by our management. Also, our Kangaroo Point accommodation doesn’t allow pets.
