Wherever I Lay my Hat…
I travel a fair bit.
Some might say I travel alot. Others might disagree.
Most of my travel is for Australian Rules (AFL) football matches ( I am a rabid Brisbane Lions supporter) or for Cricket ;Tests, One Dayer and Big Bashes ( I am a rabid Brisbane Heat fan even if the last two years have been awful).
The other reason for travel is, of course, to visit HR.
Most of the footy and cricket travel is to Brisbane (Brisvegas), though there are times when HR and I chose an interstate match and add a few days either side to make a bit of a holiday.
There are three hotels in Brisbane that I frequent;The Hotel Grand Chancellor, The Watermark Hotel and The Wellington Apartment Hotel.
The Hotel Grand Chancellor and The Watermark Hotel are my preferred options if I need to stay in Brisbane for work. Both have great facilities are clean and comfortable. The prices are excellent and they have GREAT summer specials. Both have had refurbs lately. Both are well placed for wherever you want to go be it the city the airport or some of the entertainment.
The night before I flew out to HR's for Christmas I stayed at The Watermark Hotel.They have some excellent room service specials, for $20.00 you get a meal and a drink! The food was pretty darned good, plenty of it and tasty too.
The Wellington Apartment Hotel is BRILLIANT for when I go to the cricket or the footy, they don't price gouge when they know there is a match/game on and they are clean and comfortable and within walking distance to the Gabba. Breakfast at their restaurant is delicious and well priced!
Driving back with HR from his place to mine we decided to stay overnight in Coonabarabran at the Amber Court Motel. A clean and comfortable budget motel that is well placed to catch the custom.
One of the novel things we found in Coonabarabran, in Woollies of all places is shown below.
I am off to the cricket this weekend..GO HEAT!!!!!!
