Great Southern Hotel
Ranked #84 of 169 Hotels in Brisbane
Reviewed 13 March 2014

This hotel is in a good location in central Brisbane. I was not disappointed by anything nor particularly excited either. If you want a reasonable price for a business trip in a good location then this is a good bet. Dinner and breakfast are pretty good

Up to Brisbane for the Falling Back to Earth Exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art and also saw the Neil Finn concert which was sold out in Sydney. Booked the Virgin Airlines Package with Rendezvous Hotel. We had a nice view of the river from our 10th floor room. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The cupboard which held the fridge was a bit knocked about from wear and tear, but overall the visit was pleasant. Go for the location. Short walk to most attractions and the FREE ferry service.

Room Tip: Higher the better. Nothing below 10

This motel is centrally located, friendly staff, rooms were clean and well sized. Beds were in redibly comfy and noise from city was not a problem.
Only critcism I have is the car park, the way in and out is extremely narrow and car spaces were on the small side also.

I stayed here for 1 night in a room with adjoining sitting room and kitchen. It was excellent value for money and a great location, opposite Central station (very useful for Airtrain to airport) and an easy walk to the mall and shopping. Decor is a little dated but it was very clean and overall, highly recommended.

The Hotel room was dark and the bed not that comfortable. We had a room facing an alley which was not too pleasant however we were only there for one night. A previous guest had filled the Crown Lager beed bottle with water however when we rang down, the staff were great and replaced this immediately. The location was excellent for our purpose and I would stay again. The rooms could do with an upgrade though.

A good hotel close to shops, bars, restaurants. Staff were very eager to help. Large comfortable room with everything we needed and a great river view.
We ordered room service (from the cafe) which was very good.
We got 3 hours free wifi, much better than most hotels.
Only two niggles: No guest laundry room. The swimming pool (at least it had one) was under filled leading to stubbed toes and bumped knees in the shallow end.
We would stay there again.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a river view
