We stayed here because it is very close to "River-stage" Brisbane - bonus, & it is! Mostly OK but a very tired looking hotel. Like something from the 60's. between the 3 of us we had 6 devices and none of them could connect or maintain connection for more than a few minutes - so the free wifi is debatable...

Dear Wendy D I appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. I'm glad to hear you found the location convenient, as it's definitely a short walk to River Stage and other attractions in Brisbane. I apologise the style and décor of the hotel was not to your liking. We put in a lot of work to maintain the...

Super location, right opposite the bottanical gardens, and a short walk up to Brisbane city centre. The river taxis were also about a 15 minute walk, so a car is not required. The park opposite has a weekend market. There is also a cafe, which is very good. Plenty of restaurants nearby the hotel.

We spent just the one night here the location is perfect across from the Botanical gardens. All the staff we met were simply fantastic helpful personable and enjoy a laugh. For a CBD hotel good value for money and having under cover parking. I would certainly return to this hotel and recommend this hotel for a city stay

We have stayed here many times over the past and this beautiful hotel holds many special memories for me.

Hotel itself was fine. Receptionist when I checked in was far from hospitable - snooty would the right adjective! Condescending and unhelpful - felt like I'd crawled out from the bush.
