After reading the previous reviews I thought this sounded like a safe bet and I wasn't disappointed. The hotel is well located only 5 mins walk from the centre of town but in a quiet area. The rooms are very well appointed and a great size. We only stayed one night but I could have done a much longer stay very comfortably here. Amenities and size, including balcony, that don't make you feel trapped in a hotel room. A funky fit out and great kitchen and entertainment facilities. Only downside is the shower which doesn't have a shower screen so you get a wet floor and need plenty of towels.

Dear Imation,
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Punthill Brisbane and thanks for taking the time to provide your review.
We do find that a bathmat effectively catches any water but next time you stay, please ask for as many towels as you need.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Punthill soon.
Kind regards,

On Easter Saturday my husband and I needed to attend a buck's night and hen's night that were both located in Brisbane CBD. I looked for somewhere to stay that was reasonably priced, within walking distance of both pre-wedding celebrations, had onsite parking at low cost and included a kitchenette for preparing at least one meal. Punthill Brisbane fit the bill exactly. It was quiet, within 650m of the hen's location (slightly further to buck's), and newly refurbished with a king-sized bed that fitted my husband. We also happened to book at a time when free parking and free wi-fi were included in the price. Absolute bargain! Upon arrival, we were not disappointed and found that the studio apartment with it's private balcony was perfectly suited to our needs. There was only one thing that was less than perfect for us, which was the softness of the bed. My husband ended up pulling the mattress topper off because he said he felt like he was sinking into a bunch of fluffy clouds. This is, however, personal preference and I'm sure that most people would be very happy with the comfort of the bed. We had a visit from staff on Sunday morning asking if we wanted our room cleaned or more towels and there was someone at the completely unpretentious front desk pretty much the whole time we were there. There is also a small cafe/bar a couple of doors up that looked good, but we didn't visit. In addition there is a lovely pool/gym/bbq area tucked away on the second floor. In the end, we decided to extend out stay to include Easter Sunday, also. Highly recommended.

This place was great - boutique atmosphere, comfortable rooms, great staff. A little out of the way but worth it for such a nice room at an affordable price. Loved the kooky wallpaper and pictures in the bathroom. Loads of character while still being clean and modern.

Great place to stay. Good to be able to cook our own meals and enjoys the same facilities available in hotels such as the pool, the gym and well fitted amenities. The staff went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Arrived earlier than check-in time and was able to check-in straight away. Our friends arrived first and mentioned that we were travelling together and even if we did not make any request, we were very happy to be allocated an apartment on the same floor close to our friends...:-) That's what makes for a great stay!!! Thank you very much. We look forward to staying again soon.

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautifully appointed and if you have specific needs the staff is happy to help if...

Love this place.. The pool area was beautiful, service was fantastic, rooms were clean and had cool decor, staff fantastic & very helpful. We arrived early and received a very warm welcome and were able to check straight in to the room. Staff then helped us with directions to some fantastic restaurants just walking distance from the hotel... I cant wait to return.

Usually stay at Punt Hill when in Melbourne & Punt Hill Brisbane lived up to expectations.
Great location within walking distance to Woolies/Coles, cafes, train, city. Outdoor pool, which was inviting & gym (unfortunately didn't get to use either)
Room was spacious: I have no problems with a small bathroom, prefer larger living area.
Staff friendly and helpful & great coffee from the coffee cart at the front.
Only negative comment: there were a pair a bra & knickers (in the laundry box) left from previous guest! Mm not nice.
However would stay here again.

I was pleasantly surprised by Punthill. I booked just a few hours before I arrived. There weren't many alternatives to choose from at a reasonable price at that late stage. Favourable reviews, proximity to central station and a good deal swayed me to give them a go, and I'm glad I did. The property is just a 2min walk to Central Station and a 10min walk to Queen St mall.

The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to find me a place to park on the property as my vehicle (with items on the roof) did not fit in the undercover carpark.

The building is not new, but has been tastefully renovated in what could be best described as a quirky decor. Not usually my thing but I really liked it. All the fittings and appliances in the room were new and good quality. The studio room, though average size, felt much larger than it was, due to good layout and design and had everything one could want. A generous balcony (mine overlooking the common area/gym) was included. The bathroom was the only slight let-down being a bit cramped, lacking enough light in the shower, and lacking enough ventilation to prevent the mirror fogging up during the briefest shower. Those complaints however are minor. The room was immaculately clean and presented, and a nice touch was a daily quote left on your bed to inspire a good sleep.

The deal I received seemed lower in price than what they offer most nights and included wifi and parking. I would consider Punthill as one of my first choices when staying in Brisbane as long as the pricing was similar. Certainly not a five-star luxury accommodation, but great for business or event visit to Brisbane.
