ULTIQA Rothbury Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 24, 2013

I had this accommodation booked for me as I was on a business trip and it was located in the Brisbane CBD

This is the first Hotel I have ever checked into and checked out of within an hour.

First I should mention that the staff were all extremely friendly, genuine and very helpful.

The issues I had were with the 'smell' in the Hotel foyer area and the overpowering smell of dust, musty and commercial cleaning chemicals in the room and corridor area.

The parking is a real treat and you need an engineering degree to fit into the spot.

The whole Hotel seemed very dark and not a pleasant welcoming experience. There are other Hotels out there for the same money or a little more (approx. $30.00) that would be far better to stay at in Brisbane

Room Tip: I didn't want to see any other rooms. I left the hotel and made a booking elswhere

We are disappointed to hear that our property was not to your satisfaction. Many of our Guests appreciate the heritage of the Rothbury Hotel as this is what gives the property it’s charm and sophistication, as well as the fantastic location which is so close to the Brisbane CBD, train station and an array of bars and restaurants that Brisbane has to offer.

As you can appreciate, the car park at Rothbury is the size it is so we can accommodate as many guests with vehicles as possible. Our car park charge per night is one of the lowest in Brisbane and our Staff are always more than happy to assist with any guest who is experience problems in parking their car.

We appreciate that everyone has their own opinion and thank you for taking the time to provide this review.

Kind Regards,

Sally

If you are going to Brisbane and want to be near the CBD this is the place. 6 stories and a carpark. Gym facilities also available. Continental breakfast included. If you want to do your own cooking everything right down to the salt and pepper is there in the well appointed kitchen
Staff are very friendly -rooms are clean and comfortable and the beds are like clouds. Plenty of towels and good quality toiletries. Very close to the city malls and plenty of attractions. I would definitely stay here again

This is an older style apartment hotel which we chose for it's easy walking distance to the city and Central Railway Station in Brisbane.

We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and Reception was closed but we called on the phone provided and the staff arrived within minutes. Check-in was smooth and hassle free.

The apartment (401) was roomy and comfortable. We were expecting some noise from the train station, but the room was quiet and we had a great night's sleep in a comfortable and clean queen bed (with good pillows).

Kitchen was reasonably well equipped (see photos) and there's a washer/dryer in the bathroom as well as a large hand basin. Previous posts mentioned dodgy air conditioner switches, we did not find this to be the case. Our room had it's own aircon controls and it worked well.

Breakfast basket in the fridge with bread, cereal, coffee/tea and juice with fresh milk. We requested gluten free bread, which was provided (thank you!) There is room service, but we didn't use it. There is also a sandwich/juice bar next door, which appeared to be only open for lunch?

Overall it was a pleasant stay, the carpets and couches are a bit faded, and the bedspread needs a freshen up, but everything in the room was very clean and we would stay again.

Room Tip: walking distance to Central Railway Station and Brisbane CBD

I cannot say enough of the courtesy & helpfulness of the staff. LOVED the hotel - this suits the traveller who prefers older style (reminded me somewhat of a small-sister version of the Windsor in Melbourne). The Rothbury is in a heritage building, as I understand, once the Shell building and convenient to Central Station, the lovely Edward Street, Riverside dining & Queen Street. The room was spotless and I slept like a baby. I really loved the little brekky left in the 'fridge - juice, bread for toasting, part of the deal which suits those who prefer a light breakfast, and I thought a lovely, home- touch. The room was quiet, and excellent value for such closeness to all amenities. I travelled by myself and had a small room (which was large compared to those of our English cousins) and would have preferred to have had a window that opened, as I understand some of the other rooms have, but still no great bother, although as usual, and as previous reviews will attest, I had a row with the air-conditioner (last tally: me nil: aircon 1) but my fault as am hopeless with air-cons. Will most certainly return.

Room Tip: If you prefer not to be hermetically sealed, ask for a room with a window.

Friendly, helpful, welcoming staff. Well appointed and conveniently located. Secure underground parking. Doubled glazed windows reduced traffic noise. Units well set up and fully equipped for an extended stay if required. Short walk to "air train" for access to Brisbane international airport.

Room Tip: No preference

We flew to Brisbane for a big sporting event and rented a one bedroom apartment at the Rothbury for three nights, our first stay there. It was a great choice. It is just out of the busy city centre, so relatively quiet (no rowdy sports fans to be heard), but only a short block from the Central Railway station, so we caught the train from and to the airport.
The hotel is very 1930s, beautifully refurbished. Our apartment was light and airy and very comfortable, nice appointments and appliances, and new bathroom (with washing machine/dryer). Continental breakfast of juice, cereal, bread and condiments was placed fresh in our refridgerator each day, for use with the tea, coffee, kettle and toaster provided. There are good restaurants only a couple of blocks away, and a cafe/bar next door to the hotel.
We thought it was great, and will go back next time we travel to Brisbane.

I cannot say enough about the Rothbury. it is central to everything, public transport outside your door, short walk to Queen Street Mall, everything is in walking distance and was reasonably priced. The rooms are spacious, well appointed and very clean, and the staff are always friendly and helpful. We heard no noise for the duration of out stay, which was surprising for me being in the heart of the city and with other guests coming and going. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment, and the kitchen and washer/dryer were a god send, and the breakfast basket we found in the fridge each day was great for the mornings. Now we don't stay anywhere else, and recommend it to everyone we know, the Rothbury ticks all the boxes, give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
