Cruising On or Flying on Through Brisbane?


The team from the GC Mag recently chose to stay at The Kingsford Brisbane Airport Hotel for their annual event commitments and we couldn’t have been more delighted.

Read further below to hear about their amazing short stay.

Are you cruising or flying on through Brisbane and looking for the perfect place to spend the night without the mad dash to make your departure.

The Kingsford an Ascend Hotel Collection Member, is Brisbane’s latest boutique hotel conveniently located in Hamilton ideally situated only moments from the Airport or Cruise Terminal.

The hotel boasts modern and trendy decor with a very friendly team who are ready to get you settled in; it just makes everything that little bit easier when on the road.

We recently stayed at The Kingsford while in the river city for our annual event commitments, we did some planning and locked in a late checkout.

So returning to our rooms in the early hours of the next morning we were able to get some shut eye thanks to the hotel’s blackout curtains, something that is a must have in this world of jet lag.

A few hours later it was time to get back on the road and on the way to reception we grabbed some breakfast and a coffee from the downstairs cafe,  then we hit the road rested and recharged something you just don’t get from sleeping in the usual accommodation on offer near any airport in the country.

So we know what it’s like making those early morning dashes to the airports only to get stuck on the motorway, or those “door to door” transfers that spend most of the time picking up from three other hotels.

So why not plan and spend a night at The Kingsford all with the aim of getting to your destination with as little stress as possible.

You can thank us later, Safe and Happy Travels
