Families of the Bride and families of the Groom arrived on the Friday before the wedding and we all stayed two nights. Staff went above and beyond to make sure our daughter and new son... More

The hotel is next to the Brisbane conference center, thus it naturally attracts visitors. The rooms are however in an unsatisfying state: Rooms need urgent refurbishment, especially the bathrooms: For my bathroom, dozens of tiles are broken, and also the bathtub has severe damages. Wifi is super-slow. The walls to the next rooms are thin, I can hear any word... More

The views from the extra large balcony were amazing. We stayed on the 10th floor with city light & river views. Great location with shops, markets and great food options avalable within walking distance. Buffet breakfast in the restaurant was one of the best I've had in the past 12 months. The guestrooms a little dated, the bathroom are straight... More

...was unreal. I don't like hotels too much - generally. But the concierge team were polite, efficient and human. Well done guys. Very happy. The room service was quick. I was a little disappointed that they'd asked me to extend my stay - I agreed - and then I'm notified that no rooms are available. But I can cope with... More

Very nice hotel, room was top notch, free wifi, staff were pleasant but right outside my level 1 window was the pool bar which played loud music until late at night on the weekends.

I chose this hotel since it was close to QPAC and I was going up purely to watch Wicked - The Musical. The distance from QPAC certainly didn't disappoint. The room I was in was spacious and even had a little kitchenette with microwave which most hotels did not. The aircon was fabulous at keeping me comfortable and the bed... More
