Had to almost get in a punch up with the manager just to get another blanket for my kids bed. Told my wife just to up the heater. So went down and said that wasn't good enough that there was only one thin blanket on the bed. Asked him if every blanket in every room was being used. He swore... More

Small room but manageable, appears to be mostly clean. Only one pillow each, no wine glasses, kettle only just fits under the tap in bathroom to fill, advertised $100/night, when booking this changed to $110.00/night, when charged it was $126/night. I won't rush back.

Morris on the reception desk needs to be re-trained in the hospitality industry and particularly how to meet and greet guests. On arrival, there was no vacant parking - Morris told me "Bad Luck, first in best dressed!" The ATM at the front was not working. We then paid $150 for the night for the smallest room that you can...

Let me start by saying a group of us booked into this establishment because of convenience. So we had about 7 rooms in total. The list of things that we were, to say the least, dismayed about started with broken toilet seat, shower from above room leaking into shower of below room, bathroom door falling off. Empty condom packets under... More

I stayed here due to a work function held close by and was overall very disappointed. Check-in for myself and several other guests was close to 10 minutes each, even though our rooms were already fully paid for. The beds in my twin-room were not comfortable and had only one light cover and sheet and no extra blankets. The air... More

We selected this hotel purely on its proximity to the Gabba which was only a few minutes walk away. It is also only a block away from the picturesque Brisbane River and cliffs. Just metres away from the hotel are plenty of fast food joints, restaurants and a convenience store. Our one bedroom apartment had been recently refurbished and was... More
