Very comfortable queen beds, hideous rollaway. A difficult stay with the family because of the sleeping arrangements. The rooms were attractive but it was like sleeping in the bathroom with the ensuite of the main bedroom.

Great location and facilities, but let down by the poor cleanliness. We didn't realize that there was no house cleaning to change towels daily or bins etc. until we were all settled in. This should be more apparent on the web site when booking. For the price was very disappointed. I can live with changing towels and emptying bins myself, but staying in a clean property is the number one priority in enjoying the accommodation.

good location, dissappointing room service and facilites for a long stay. Staff were very defensive stating that the room was serviced on a weekly basis - this would have been ok if we had sufficient loo paper and detergent to get through the 5 days of our stay.

Our second stay was excellent again. We book a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment with river view. The rooms are modern, clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. We love the balcony with beautiful river/Story Bridge views. The Mint is in an extremely convenient location, being a 5/10 minute walk along the river to Eagle Street Pier and the Ferry stop where you can hop on a ferry to Southbank or anywhere. It is also a 10 minute walk to Queen Street Mall shopping centre. An excellent value apartment. Highly recommended.

overall the stay is excellent, it appears that a new cleaning product has been used of the tiled floors which leaves a residue making it sticky and leaving at wet feeling upon feet..
i cant think of anything else to write..oh!! perhaps reduce the mandatory character count required for the survey !!!!

breakfast possibility, room ok, extractor fan was dirty, Parking facilities was fine and save, perhaps mention reception that pool can be used or not, When I'm back in Brisbane, I'll probably be back book your hotel.
