Let me say straight up, I was advised at time of booking that the hotel had a bar on the room top and that I would hear some noise through the night so I was prepared for the worst. In saying this, I was on level 2 and although I could hear the muffled sound of laughter and the bass beat of music it did not affect my sleep in the very luxurious bed with it’s crisp sheets and abundance of pillows.
The room was small, but impeccably clean. Everything in the room looked like it had been carefully thought out. I loved the blue ceramic kettle, the Nespresso machine, the chocolate brownies and the general hip and funky feel.
The staff was certainly the best I have ever encountered and I have visited many hotels in and outside of Australia. Diana on reception was extremely professional whilst being warm incredibly helpful and courteous. The boys manning the lift of a night were equally friendly and even when I arrived back at midnight I was greeted with a smile and asked how my day was.
I loved waking up in the morning and slipping 2 doors down to ‘Alfred and Constance' for a coffee. It was incredible to see this establishment’s metamorphosis from a 700 odd people packed bar/club, to a morning coffee hub for businessmen and a large mix of people from all walks of life. It is so worth seeing this place in the day purely for the attention to detail paid to it’s truly incredible fit out.
Back to Limes! I spent 3 nights at this Hotel and I have to say I loved it!
Would I return? Absolutely! I would stay here again as the bed was comfy the staff made me feel like an old friend and the location was great. It is definitely somewhere you want to check out!
My sincere thanks to all the staff for making my Brisbane escape so memorable and so special.
Ps. The Lychee Cocktail on the rooftop is a definite must! :)
