The Duke was a fantastic place to stay, very modern and so very comfortable. The apartment has heaps of room and the fact that it is pet friendly is amazing. Parking is free and the location of the apartment is very convenient.
Lovely but noisy. Wish you could see the address in post to check exactly where it is before booking
Lovely place to stay. Comfy beds. Everything but a coffee machine.
Would definitely recommend.
The location was good, the apartment was comfortable. Was nice to have the basics when cooking.
We enjoyed it.
We rented a two bedroom two bath apartment but ended up with a one bedroom one bath place.
We arrived to two locked doors in the apartment. I assume they are the 2nd bedroom and bath. I mentioned this in two emails to the owner but he did not respond to this issue when he wrote back. We had such a harrowing journey to Brisbane that I decided to just let it go rather than press the issue because I simply didn’t want to deal with anymore difficulties. My husband and I have different room temperature preferences at night and I always rent apartments with the option of sleeping apart, one of the reasons I chose this one for us. But it was only a moderate inconvenience and I have left this factor out of my rating for the apartment since I have no idea how to rate this, and since this is a really nice apartment otherwise, clean and tastefully furnished, with a wonderfully comfortable bed. The rating of four stars instead of five is based on the following factors. There is no coffee making machine. If you enjoy coffee, then instant coffee simply won’t do and there is no way to make drip. Our checking in turned out a bit stressful. Because of our flight, we arrived after midnight. Despite the owner’s very thoughtful and complete instructions with photos, it was a bit stressful trying to retrieve the key from the lock box attached to the gas meters under the house across the street. I think in day light it might have worked better, but it was dark and difficult to see. We were also a bit nervous about scrambling under somebody’s house in the middle of the night. The location is such that it would be fantastic for cricket fans, but tourists would need to use public transport. We had thought we could take the ferry into the city center but the ferry stop is really not within walking distance, nor would the walk be pleasant or scenic. We were very fortunate that our Brisbane greeter went out off her way and met us at the apartment. She walked us through purchasing the translink card, escorted us to the bus stop, and we rode into town together. The bus stop is less than a mile from the apartment so once you know where it is, things become much simpler, but this is something we would have had a difficult time figuring out for ourselves, and I think an apartment within the CBD would have suited us better. In summary, we enjoyed the apartment and would recommend it if the above issues are not problems for you.
A home away from home...
