I enjoyed the architecture of this hotel, with the room itself being pleasant, and the fittings good quality.

I slept well and had no complaints as all fixtures and fittings worked or were in good condition.

It was disconcerting that the local restaurant scene is so poor. Brisbane really is a 'country town' compared to Melbourne.

The hotel reception was pokey and staff service only average but I regard such serviced apartments as basically BYO food and drink.

The location was tops with the Airtrain and Gold Coast trains only a hop step and jump away.

Stayed here for one night only for business. Stayed in a one bedroom apartment - nicely furnished, clean, with kitchenette, separate lounge room, bedroom and ensuite. Plenty of space, and washing machine and dryer in bathroom if needed.
Quite comfortable, but nothing to rave about.
If you have a car you must book a car parking space - the car park is tiny, so wouldn't want a big car.

Very handy for anything in the city, but no views and currently a construcion site next door that started work at 6.30am.

We booked a group of twenty-two people into the Rothbury on Ann recently for an eight-day stay. We gave the hotel a room list a couple of weeks in advance, and as a consequence we expected that the staff would get the room arrangements (double, twin or single) right, and the correct number of breakfast baskets in each room. This didn't happen.
The score of correct breakfast baskets for our room was three out of eight, and the rest of the group reported similar.
Despite the fact that the group paid a hefty deposit in advance, and offered to pay the total bill at check-in, our check-in was chaos, because hotel staff requested a credit card advance of $100 additional security from each room, or $500 cash if the occupant did not have a credit card. Eventually the tour leader put all the security deposits required by staff on his credit card, so that the group could get their room keys. Not a good start.
The restaurant advertised in the hotel's brochure/web site is only open after five pm on a Friday, no other night, and despite Central Station being across the road, if you don't like Macdonalds, the restaurant scene in the vicinity is a bit sparse, particularly on a Sunday and Monday night.
The hotel's basket breakfast is equally sparse. Two pieces of bread, small box of cereal, milk, butter, small packet jam/ vegemite, juice and an apple. No way to express preferences or explain food allergies. The solution is to bring your own.
On the positive side, the rooms are very well equipped, although some lounges were well past their best; the rooms are quiet; the beds are extremely comfortable, and most of the staff were friendly and obliging. And the Art Deco building itself is great.

We arrived at the hotel midday Sunday after a week at port Douglas. The receptionist was friendly and welcoming. Our hotel room was clean and tidy but quite small with nowhere to sit apart from the bed-We did see the apartments which were much larger and well appointed,
so if you intend to stay for more than a few days try one of them.
The hotel restaurant is closed Sunday nights so we had to go into the town centre(which is close by-3min walk). Found somewhere to eat but generally the place was very quiet.
Was generally unimpressed with Brisbane and on our third and last day caught a train down to the Gold Coast for the day-the hotel is only 100m from the Central train Station

Would rate this hotel excellent for the art deco decor, above average for the room and average for the staff. Central, with no great hill to climb after shopping throughout the city. Across the intersection from the Sheraton and Central Station. Quiet block, neat room. CD player in room not working....staff said they would replace but failed to get back to me even after a phone call to remind them. Pamphlet in room said free parking but front counter staff charging $11 AUD for parking. Staff curt when I presented the in room pamphlet and abruptly said I was already getting a great deal but reluctantly accepted their own pamplet. Got a great deal from booking through an internet site but staff stated that the price would be removed for future reference.
