“Flavour Restaurant review only did not stay at hotel”
Reviewed 31 March 2013

We dined as a family of 6 adults on Sunday 31 March 2013. Overall a nice meal though Chicken Riviera was a bit of a disappointment with not a lot of chicken or flavour, steaks were enjoyed as was the Peking Duck Breast though duck would not be filling for a large eater and the sauce was very sweet and tasted as though it had come from a packet and not homemade as expected, the potato/sweet potato bake was dry and the meal needed more colour. Desert was disappointing as mango macadamia cheese cake was not available which a few of us were looking forward to, we were not advised of this at the start if the meal which is usually the case in most restaurants I have eaten at. The gateau was not enjoyed and the Violet crumble and chocolate cake didn't have much violet crumble but the cookies and cream cheese cake was delicious. The Buondi coffee was very nice. Staff were friendly and attentive.

These apartments are great for a short stay. Everything was spotless and you could really tell that house keeping has a high attention to detail.

The only thing I will fault is the bathroom - it was a rather odd setup, though I think this may be one of the rooms they have for disabled guests. The shower area certainly was accessible!

And the lime green swivel chairs? Awesome! If only I could squeeze them into my bag!

Room Tip: The in room dining menu is a splitting image of the pub style dining down stairs, just more expensiv...

The Colmslie was recommended by the company I was meeting with the next day as it was close to where they were located. I was a bit dubious when I looked it up on TA and saw it was attached to a tavern. However, my fears were ill founded as it was a terrific place to stay. The room was spacious, modern and well appointed. The bed was comfy and made for a good night's sleep and the parking was undercover and free. The staff were great. The dinner was pub style in a modern dining room and the breakfast, whilst not a huge choice was more than adequate. When next I'm in Brisbane for work, I'll definitely stay here again as it represents better value than the hotels in the city and it is only 10minutes from the CBD.

The apartments are good, the food is average for breakfast and the same for dinner, a place to stay but nothing that stood out, very average. This was a business trip with using the conference facilities.

I had the pleasure to stay at The Colmsie Hotel for a week whilst on a training course. It is deffiantly a five star hotel. The staff were excellent, could not do enough for you. The rooms were terrific and spotless, well set out with a lovely king size bed. The breakfast was great, with a wonderfully variety of foods. Dinner menu had such a great variety, and the staff were an absolute pleasure. Highly recommended!!!!!

Stayed here after my sister's wedding reception was held in the function room on the hotel and it was great!

The people at reception were very helpful - even after hours when we lost our hotel key (card)!

The rooms are roomy, comfortable and clean. I looooved the showers - plenty of hot water and pressure.

The hotel is opposite Coles and Woolies and just off the Wynnum Rd so you are close to transport, main roads and shops.

I would definitely recommend anyone to stay here.
