I stayed at the Royal Albert over the weekend on the recommendation of a friend who has stayed there several times. My room - a deluxe - was enormous - the size of a studio apartment. Full laundry facilities, basic kitchenette and bathroom including a tub. My friend stayed in a one bedroom suite, also enormous and well appointed. The... More

Stayed for 5 nights for work in a one bedroom apartment. Apartments have two TVs with basic pay TV channels, kitchen (with full size fridge, stove and microwave) and laundry with washer / dryer. Located right in the middle of town, secure and it has real character. I recommend.

We stayed for one night, the hotel is Old World Elegance. The location is great, close to the Myer Centre and the Queen St Mall. The magazine's in the lobby on each floor are a great idea. Staff were friendly and excellent service. Would really recommend this hotel for someone who wants alittle difference and something with style.

We stayed here for 2 nights and wished it were more. Comfortable and very nicely furnished, with everything you would need for a longer stay. Staff were very helpful, from finding a flat pillow to taking our luggage to the car for us. Very quiet after 10pm even though we were in the corner room on two street fronts with... More

This is a great place to stay. Our room was amazing, very large and quiet. Everything you want within walking distance. The staff are very helpful and friendly. It was great being in the heart of the city. We have paid twice as much for a room in the past and have been disappointed, defiantly value for money.

A lovely place right in the centre of Brisbane. Fabulous room with quality at a great price. The staff were excellent from the moment we made our booking. Myer complex and great shopping just a short stroll away. Transport at your door. We stayed in the two bedroom penthouse, a real home away from home. Will return. Thanks.

Dear Wendy Thank you for your great review. It is great to see more guests discovering the Sub-penthouses for family groups or two couples. I am delighted to hear that our staff were consistently excellent. We look forward to seeing you next time you visit Brisbane for shopping, show, friends, more shopping or holiday. Peter Tyrer More

I love this place, great position, reasonable price, and a little old Brisbane charm. The rooms are large with everything you need. Taxi rank right outside the front door for you flight home and the downstairs cafe does a great breakfast.

Dear Neal I am pleased you liked our great position, reasonable price and our little bit of old Brisbane charm. As well as our great location, we believe that an increasing number of discerning travellers look for heritage boutique hotels. When we refurbished a couple of years ago, we chose furniture of a classic elegance and an innovative modern design... More

Right in the heart of the city opposite Myer centre. Huge spacious rooms 12-14 ft ceilings. Comfy beds and small but adequate kitchen facilities. Staff are excellent. We were on 2nd floor and got a bit of street noise, but not too bad. Had double glazed windows. Lovely paintings and china collection in hotel. Only drawbacks - no free wifi,... More

Dear Digiteyes Thank you for your great review. Yes all our rooms have very high ceilings but Level 2 is split level so they are 14 ft (4.27m). I am pleased you found us good value for money and appreciate your understanding that the tariffs are higher during State of Origin. Peter Tyrer More

Wouldn't stay anywhere else again! Its a great hotel in the heart of Brisbane CBD. Beautiful decore, spacious and homely. Friendly, professional service. Comfortable beds. Love the dining table and kitchenette in even the smallest of the rooms. Smallest rooms still a lot bigger than other motel rooms. I love this hotel!

We spent a Saturday night in Brisbane recently. As we were staying with another couple, we chose a penthouse. There was plenty of space to relax without getting in each other's way. It was in a great location and we would definitely stay again.

Dear Blbauz I am pleased you enjoyed the great atmosphere of one of our Sub-penthouses. For two couples these are ideal as for much the same price you feel like you are in a Manhattan apartment overlooking 5th Avenue! Peter Tyrer More
