Great Southern Hotel
Ranked #85 of 169 Hotels in Brisbane
Reviewed 29 June 2014

The Hotel is ok. The rooms are clean and spacious. Location good 5 min walk to city, casino, Eagle Street pier and right opposite Southbank. The only problem is parking, not many places and very small, but there is ten dollar a day over the weekend round the corner.

Room Tip: We were on the 11th floor facing river, quiet enough. Other rooms showers noisy !

We were visiting Brisbane for the Caravan and Camping show. This hotel is centrally located and perfect for our needs. Also located near good shopping and entertainment precinct. It took us only 5 minutes to get to the show grounds.

Room Tip: Our room on the 13th floor had a very noisy fan or aircon outlet in the bathroom that interrupted o...

Location was very good. Close to the Queen St Mall, South Bank and the Casino.
The price of the room was very reasonable, we just used it overnight. On arrival our check in was a breeze the staff were very friendly and helpful nothing was to much for them. I loved the idea that check out was 11am. The room was comfortable and very clean, the bathroom room had excellent lighting it looked as if it had a makeover . The only thing wrong was the air conditioner was a little noisy so we turned it off. Lucky it was not hot. Did report it to the staff on check out. they were very apologetic.
Would stay there again.

Good position, reception efficient and friendly. Room very good and was value for the money. Would have stayed again on my return to Brisbane but cost had jumped 90+ dollars so went elsewhere. Shame as I liked the accommodation.rental cars Budget/Avis. Saves dollars to get here rather than airport.

Our latest stay in Brisbane was the third at this hotel so it's time we shared our impressions. Living in a regional city, we travel to Brisbane frequently, mostly to attend theatre performances or have our European car serviced or just to go shopping. This is where this hotel comes into its own. Its central location makes it a short walk to just about anything you might need in Brisbane, eg, 10 minutes to QPAC and South Bank; 5 minutes to Queen St Mall; 10 minutes to Eagle St Pier dining precinct; opposite the casino and so on.
The hotel itself is getting on a bit in years but I believe it is better than its three-star rating. The rooms are always very clean and if you're lucky enough to get a front room up high, the views across the Brisbane River to South Bank and Mt Cootha are pretty good. The only negative is the restricted on-site parking. We haven't missed out on a spot yet but on our most recent stay just managed to get the last one after a bit of tight manoeuvring.
Overall, however, we are happy to make this our base when in Brisbane and would recommend it to anyone looking for reasonably priced accommodation in a great location.

Room Tip: Ask for a room 10th floor or better at the front of the building for the best views

This hotel has a great location, near everything but still very quiet. Nice room, clean, not overly expensive, and an opportunity to park (at an extra cost, but it's the city after all). Walking distance to the shops and just across the bridge from Southbank...

The location of the hotel, in George St., makes it easily accessible, and close to many restaurants etc. A short walk to the casino (for those who like to gamble), and, in our case, a short stroll to the bridge to Southbank. The lobby cafe/bar was very welcome too. WiFi didn'work too well in the bar, but hotel staff were very helpful.
