Stayed for 2 nights as I had to travel to Brisbane for meetings. I did not book this accommodation, it was booked by my work, but I found the room very comfortable and the location was great. The room and bathroom was adequately sized for just me, it would have been just ok if there were two of us. My...

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. It is situated very handily - a short walk to the Queen Street Mall, Casino, restaurants and other attractions. Likewise, it was only a short walk over to the South Bank restaurants, museums, art galleries, theatres. The room was well equipped. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. For a budget price this...

Clean but older hotel. Very close to transport and the Queen Street mall. Plenty of food opportunities near by. 15 min walk to SouthBank and Cultural centre over the bridge. Friendly staff. Breakfast at the hotel is reasonable. Suggest buying a voucher when you arrive

The hotel was an easy walk from Roma Street Station which connects with the airport line. The room was a very good standard and all very clean - even appeared to be recently renovated. A good restaurant downstairs that was part of the same building. One final point - it was easy to identify from street level.

The queen room was not too big or fancy, but clean and tidy. Worth the money especially considering its location within the city and easy access to the railway station and cabs. The restaurant staff and lobby staff were polite and helpful. Recommended for business travel

Very clean, basic furnishings, well presented, ideal for a traveller on a budget. Customer service was friendly and welcoming. 15 minute walk to Southbank or 5 minutes to the Mall. Ideal location. 2nd stay, and will be back again.

Stayed in the George Williams Hotel for 2 nights and can't rate it highly enough. Staff absolutely wonderful, extremely helpful including the restaurant staff. Rooms small but well appointed had everything we needed and spotlessly clean. Food in the restaurant was fabulous. Very central to everything will definitely stay again.
