The only down side was that I didn't get to stay here long enough to really enjoy the hotel and it's swank location.
The rooms have everything you need-sound proof, beautiful plush bed and pillows, decadent decor, marble bathrooms complimented by Molton Brown toiletries & complete with washing machine. Mini bar, dishwasher and espresso machine, my only diss appointed was that mine didn't work :(
Surrounded by boutiques and restaurants and in the heart of the valley.

I have stayed here several times and it is becoming my favorite hotel in Brisbane. Located just out of the city and surrounded by great restaurants and bars through the New Farm area. Staff are fantastic, clearly enjoy working here and the rooms are beautifully appointed.

We stay for six days in this hotel. We searched several hotels in Brisbane and think this is the best one! Specially thanks for Mr. Graham Hodgson (Chief Concierge) for his knowledge of the area and his excellent services!

Room Tip: We had a highfloor suite with balcony. Enough space and excellent bathroom facilities. Also a very...

We booked one night in a King Spa room for our anniversary. Our whole experience was fantastic. I had been hesitant to book at first due to the location (we have only ever stayed in the city or Southbank), but on arrival we discovered how great it was. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

I stayed in a spa room which was big, well furnished and with all the things you need. Great tea/coffee facilities, big desk space and the plus of a washing machine for longer stays away.
The one down side is the wifi is not free - this real adds up over a few days which is really disappointing given the cost of the rooms.
Room service was good, mini bar as expensive as you'd expect!

My partner and myself came here because we heard that this place had the best cocktails in Brisbane, this is so true!

The service Rob & Brendan provided was exemplary which is expected from a 5 star hotel. The Singapore Sling was very close to those made in the Raffles Hotel in Singapore which I was very impressed by. (Thank you Brendan)

It's hard to find good a cocktail bar in the Brisbane City, but not anymore this will be the place for cocktails!

I was impressed with the reviews on trip advisor so I booked in while on business trip recently. I was not disappointed and surprised at how great it was. Good location, very attentive staff, fabulous decor and a variety of well appointed room sizes. Room service is fast and food lovely. Cocktail bar downstairs is vibrant with live music. Hotel is situated in area with a variety of restaurants and stores. Not far from city by taxi and close to major attractions. I recommend highly.

Room Tip: Queen sized rooms are on the cosy side but still well appointed.
