Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Stayed 2 nights at the Punthill and was extremely impressed with the staff, room size and comfort and facilities. Overall the whole experience was excellent. Warm welcome when we arrived, friendly chats and helpful advise from reception staff. Room was very spacious, the bed comfortable and kitchen was really well equipped. Value for money, why would you stay in a hotel when Punthill offers a fully serviced apartment at a great price? Location is about 10 minutes walk to CBD and the river and car parking fee was reasonable for Brisbane. Left feeling like a friend and will be returning in August. Thank you for such a friendly experience.

I stayed here for 5 nights and at a reasonably good price. The apartment was spacious, the beds very comfortable, lots of storage room, with a large closet and baskets. There was a comfortable small salon corner, with a couch, low table and feet-resting cushions. There was a nice kitchen corner with fridge, stove, microwave and dishwasher and enough cutleries and dishes etc. An office/table space with several chairs was provided, and the nice large balcony make this a very good choice. The reception staff is very friendly and accommodating. The location is not perfect, but only 10 mn downhill walk will bring you to the Queens Plaza. But then of course you have to walk back up again. The ride from the airport is about 15 mns and costs 50 AUD. There is a bar/restaurant next door, but nothing for food inside the hotel. All in all, I would have been quite happy with this accommodation if it weren’t for two things : one is the absolute neglect in cleaning service. The young people who do the cleaning seem to have no idea that such things as kitchen table and sinks do need washing and that carpets get vacuumed. I had to ask for that after they had gone through the room ! Also, the pool are is quite small, only 3 chairs and quite claustrophobic. So, if you come here, make sure that you ask for a thorough cleaning service.

Stayed 2 nights inc State of Origin. Friendly welcome at Reception, easy to park our car.
Easy walk to city shops or cheap Taxi to Casino $8! Beautifully appointed, dishwasher, hot plates etc etc in newly refurbished suite would suit a longer stay.

Room Tip: Sorry didn't get chance to have a swim

Just loved our three night stay in our huge studio unit. Had everything we needed to be self sufficient. Close to supermarkets, walking distance to all the CBD has to offer and so close to the station for train to the airport. Bed was SO COMFORTABLE and we just loved the shower! The staff were very friendly and efficient and even had a special gift for our wedding anniversary - such a lovely touch - thank you. We would definitely recommend Punthill as a short stay apartment in Brisbane and hope to return.

Room Tip: Request a high floor - quieter and have a view

Just returned from staying at the Punthill, there was 7 of us from Perth watching the rugby. The stay was excellent and I would strongly recommend the hotel to anyone. The staff were great, very helpful and with a good sense of humour, I would not stay anywhere else in Brisbane, excellent location. Thanks for being great hosts

Room Tip: The triple suites are a good size and offer good value

From the artistic frames at the entrance to my studio room with a king bed front and centre. You first notice how clean and wonderfully fresh everything is. This place is new, modern and well maintained. Everything just works. The bed has to be experienced to be believed. Everything speaks of clever design without overwhelming the space. The kitchenette is quite amazing for what it packs into the small space with a decent sized fridge. The television is actually mounted on a swing arm instead of just the wall so you can turn it towards your bed or the nice little two seater in the corner. The split system airconditioning unit is large, quiet and exceptional at heating the room to the desired temperature quickly. The bathroom is completely modern and efficient in a small space. The desk which sits in front of the kitchenette doubles as a kitchen bench as well as a study desk complete with phone, network ports and stylish moulded chairs. It really is quite a pleasure to stay in a room where I don't have to count the things that are absent. The sound isolation is really good as the only time I heard anything was when they closed a heavy door a little hard in the corridor.

The hotel staff were surprisingly attentive to my needs, even when the only issue I had was still plaguing me two days later. The operations manager took steps to ensure the provided solution had a backup alternative in case it did not work. They even ended up waiving charges because of the problems I experienced. This was unsolicited and is the kind of service that we miss sorely in this day and age. It prompted me to come here and post this review.

Thank you Punthill... I will be back and so will my family and friends. Marvellous place!

Room Tip: Was on 7th floor which was great.
