Stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. Rooms are well laid out, functional and clean. Hotel is quaint and the staff friendly. I had a room on the 6th floor overlooking the river, which is a fantastic view. Unfortunately the room also overlooks Kingsford Smith Drive which is very busy, and without double glazing or some form of noise blocker... More

I have stayed here previously (before the renovations) and always found it friendly and welcoming, but this was my first time post-renovations. It was everything that it has always been (wonderful staff who make a home away from home environment) but the rooms are now beautiful. They layout of them is very nice, but they don't have the fake shine... More

As i travel quite a bit for work it's nice to find a hotel that ticks all the boxes. I was met at the door by the friendly staff only too willing to unload the taxi and take my luggage to my room which was clean and well equipped. Two separate TV's (1 in the bedroom area) a nice work... More

I stayed here on what I thought was to be my final night in Australia (plane was cancelled, so I got an extra night courtesy of Qantas) Room was clean and the staff were friendly. my room didn't have a "Riverview" as it faced the back but this didn't really matter to me. This place is quite far out from... More

It is a clean, comfortable and nice place. Also it is not that far from the Brisbane CBD. The owners and staffs are very nice, Had a good time with full of pleasure, and nothing to be complained. I would stay here again.

The hotel may have had a name change as from Kingsford Smith Drive you can see their bright orange sign on the hotel that reads "VIEW". From the moment we arrived at the hotel we were impressed. The entrance was flanked with 2 huge pot plants and orange carriage-style lights. The marble foyer/reception area is large complete with a chandelier... More

I used to stay here regularly many years ago when it was the "Powerhouse" hotel. It become very tired so I stopped going there. I'm very pleased to say the View Hotel people have done a great makeover -- refurbished rooms, which are now fresh and comfortable, and probably the best hotel breakfast buffet I've seen in a long time,....

Stayed overnight during a business conference. The property was in renovated condition and looked nice in all aspects. Room and bed comfortable and breakfast very good. Staff were all friendly and helpful. The combination of the quality and the corporate rate made this a very compelling option. I would struggle to justify paying the full rate and would consider it... More

When I work in our Brisbane Office in Ann St Fortitude Valley (Melbourne, VIC native) I have tried many surrounding Hotels. As a generalisation, hotels are pretty pricy in this area given the local shops and car showrooms (prestige / Porsche anyone?), so I tried this as an option for lower price / close by work / good star rating...

I recently stayed 2 nights & selected the hotel for location as this was a business trip. The room was large,comfortable & very clean. Down side was no guest directory ( trouble knowing how to use the coffee machine & adjust the air conditioning), TV that needed to be reset to pick up all the stations & having a room... More
