I think you can ignore the review from "Meh" as I believe he / she did not actually stay at the hotel but attended to hotel for training purposes, probably a course to improve spelling.
Location: a very handy position, a 5 minute walk to Roma Station, 10 min to Queen street Mall and probably 15 min walk to South Bank.
Hotel: A very easy check in and check out by excellent staff. Our room was clean with ample space and overlooked the river. The hotel offers a swimming pool for guests which we did not use due to weather.
Breakfast: We did not thought it to be a pricey so we did not eat there as there are plenty of nearby places offering breakfast at a much more reasonable price. We actually walked over to South Bank for breakfast where we found plenty of options to choose from.
Would we return, certainly.

My husband and two small children (3 & 5 yrs) made a snap decision to have an overnight stay in the city and visit GOMA.

We booked a City View Room with a 2 x double bed configuration/shower only in bathroom. Since we had two small children, the staff were very helpful and offered us a room with a bath which we did look at, but the bath was a bit on the small for two little ones to sit in so we elected to stay with our original room.

Our room was comfortable and clean. The bathroom was lovely - LOVED the rain shower head!

The only minor drawback is that the carpark arrangement is a bit odd - the hotel doesn't have its own carpark and has an arrangement with the privately owned carpark next door. You get vouchers to use this carpark (which you pay the hotel for) and you swipe these upon exit. There are no lifts from the carpark directly into the hotel which can be awkward if you have a bit of luggage.

The hallways themselves are a bit dated and drab, but once you get into the room, the décor is fine. We found the airconditioning to be a little on the warm side and it didn't seem to be pumping into the room too efficiently (even though we had decreased the temperature to 16 degrees), but that is only because we like a cool environment in hotel rooms.

We ordered room service which arrived promptly and the meals were very generous in size and delicious. The breakfast in the restaurant the next morning was also of a high standard and the staff were courteous and friendly.

We were very happy with our stay and would definitely book there again.

PS - note that if you are travelling with children, the TV does not have a DVD/USB outlet etc.

I just had a short 1 day stay in this hotel on a Friday night. Check in was prompt and efficient and I liked their open plan reception desk. Very much more personal.

Location is on the corner of Ann and North Quay and on the riverside and only a block away from George Street. The location is good and an easy 5 minute walk to the Queen Street Mall. There are several pubs and dining choices nearby. If arriving by train Roma St Station is also
about a 5 minute walk away.

The lobby was completely refurbished last month and looks great. The rooms also looked like they were refurbished not so long ago so quite modern and "retro". Rooms are not large but a good sized flat screen tv is provided and the bathroom has modern fittings. Toileteries supplied were very
basic. Façade and Corridors still look quite dated.

Room service pizza was promptly served and was good.

My son, his partner and I had buffet breakfast in this hotel and for $32 I thought the prices were very high for the quite limited choices. On nearby George Street you will find better value breakfast options

Hotel has a pool which we didn't use.

Free wifi isnt provided but there are computers located in the lobby which can be used at no cost for 20 minutes at a time.

I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Needs way more signage and people to help guests. Waiting way too long for someone to help me find where to go for a workshop. No signs saying whivh level you are on so I ended up spending 15 mins traipsing around the place. Finally skmeone was free. He treated me like crap. Very condescending and rude. Wont ever be staying here cause of this. Food was average barely enough to feed everyone in my group and coffee boiler wasnt working in the morning.

Dear Meh

I am so sorry about your most recent experience here at the Mercure Hotel. I appologise for the staff that did not treat you as they should have and want to reasure you that we do not condone such service. I also wanted to let you know that we have taken steps to rectify the issue you raised about the location of our funtion rooms and how dificult it can be to navigate your way around the Hotel. We are in the process of having additional signage made up that will point our conference guests in the right direction.

I hope we get a chance to show you how you should be treated as a guest at the Mercure Brisbane in the future.

Kind regards

Laurence Nathan

First visit. So close to the Mall and all the shopping.
We were on the 12th floor, the room was super clean very impressed.
The room was compact but had everything in it you could want. Airconditioning was good and the KG bar downstairs very nice.
Excellent value for money. I booked direct with the hotel and got as good a deal as I could find anywhere. Checkin was a bit busy but I suppose cant be helped at peak times.
Will definitely use again.

Room Tip: Ask to be well away from the lift areas.
