This hotel is in a great location, next to all that South Bank has to offer and within 10 minute walk to railway station. The foyer is roomy and reception staff friendly and efficient . The bedroom was large with a lovely bathroom and comfortable bed. The only disadvantage is the fact that rooms at the back are opposite railway... More

We had just spent 5 nights at Pepper's Broadbeach (excellent), and thought we would see Brisbane whilst not far away before driving back to the Hunter Valley. Slightly disappointed after our stay at Broadbeach. Parking difficult in front of Hotel to unload our baggage. Room cold (but clean) with no view. Reception efficient but not particularly welcoming. Possibly would think... More

A modern well appointed hotel in a great location next to excellent restaurants and cafes. Easy walk to the south bank train station, and other South Bank locations. Kitchen, sitting room and bedroom were well appointed and had all the conveniences needed. A washing machine and dryer also was included in my suite. The front office had free sachets of... More

Stayed here in August 2013 and came back to an old friend. Was just as good, location still is brilliant (as is breakfast) and most of the Australian cricket team were there - so an even better experience with the likes of Michael Clarke and Mitchell Johnson! Great base to explore Brisbane.

Only spent the one night but fantastic location near south bank. Great room nice and roomy in one bed apartment. Room cakes and tidy. Valet parking prompt to get car when needed. Friendly service although took a while to check in while they dealt with another difficult person.

I always find a good consistency of quality for the Mantra chain and the one at Brisbane Southbank is no different. The rooms are new and have everything you need. Reception staff are efficient and you can't beat the location. Plenty of spots to go to eat and drink or have a walk along the river. The prices are a... More

We liked the location of this hotel, it was excellent for exploring South Bank on foot and using restaurants in the area. The room was adequate although a little expensive at $179 per night and there was some noise from the trains. The staff were very pleasant, friendly, professional and helpful. We would stay again and recommend to anyone wanting... More

I stayed here for 1 night and I am thankful it was only 1 night. I was shocked at this place, really disappointed. I think the hotel has recently had some refurbishments, but they have been done really poorly. The first room that I checked into looked like the bathroom had not been cleaned. I called the front desk to... More
