Exceptional service; impeccable rooms; after three fabulous nights, we did not want to leave!! The poolside dining with Hellenika, dinner at SK Steak and Oyster, and within walking distance to great shopping precinct...couldn't ask for more for our long weekend. We will be heading back just as soon as we can!

What a great hotel and precinct set up around the hotel. The hotel was fantastic with the best service I have experienced in not only Brisbane but across Australia. The rooms are spacious and very comfy with all the mod cons you need. The staff are all over it in terms of focussing on the customer.

We have visited The Calile Hotel many times and will continue to. Nothing else compares to the experience that has been created. The service is excellent and the atmosphere is both relaxing and energetic depending on what you feel like at the time.

We stayed here for six nights and had an amazing stay. The staff make this hotel as everyone we encountered was friendly and obviously loved their jobs. The hotel is so lovely and in the perfect location with great boutiques, cafes and restaurants close by. We ate at SK Restaurant that served the best steaks we have ever had and the Lobby Bar is great for light meals, snacks and drinks. We are in the older age group but everyone made us feel welcome. Parking is easy underneath the hotel. We will definitely be recommending the Calile as the best place to stay in Brisbane.

The Calile was amazing from check-in to check-out. My husband and I stayed there for our baby moon, and both agreed it was the perfect spot to wind back and just relax (perfect when you're not so comfortable moving around so much anymore). The staff were exceptional throughout the entire venue, including the surrounding restaurants. Perfect for a quick getaway - everything you need is in short walking proximity including restaurants, cafe's, cinemas (if its raining and looking for something to do) and amazing shopping boutiques.
