Recently stayed here for the 4th time and yet again it didn't fail to impress me. They have friendly efficient front desk staff. The rooms are clean & well presented. I also love the fact you can't hear other guests in their rooms. I love this hotel and will definitely return again.

A real gem. Spacious well equipped apartment type rooms in a beautifully restored heritage building (Perry House) in Central Brisbane, just opposite Myers Centre. Will definitely come back here next time we are in Brisbane. Very reasonably priced too and our two bed roomed apartment was clean. Reception was friendly and helpful. Top quality restaurants within short walking distance. What more can you ask for?

Dear George
Thank you for your glowing review. As we refurbish the interior we do keep in mind that we are custodians of Perry House which celebrated its centenary last year.
The heart and soul of Brisbane for 100 years.

although hotel is in an exellant position in the city it isn't well sign posted to get into the parking area to park your car and once in you feel that everyone who is having a break is staring at you. The reception area is lovely but you have to go in the back door from parking your car. The rooms were lovely large and clean with plenty of space only problem is the taps were hard to turn on and off in the bathrooms as they were very dated but kitchen area was easier. all in all a nice place to stay.

Dear Shirley
Thank you for your comments and I hope you will have less trouble finding us next time. Guests that book direct receive a confirmation email with directions if they are driving. For guests that book on line, we are happy to “talk people in” if they get lost, alternatively most GPS’s can find us. I am pleased you like our new reception which was refurbished a couple of years ago.

I discovered this hotel last year and I keep coming back. The hotel is located in the centre of the city and is easy walking distance to everything. The rooms are huge and very clean. Reception is very helpful and I would recommend anyone to stay here.

This hotel has, although in the middle of Brisbane, very big rooms. The cheapest rooms still have a dining table, small kichenette and a seperate working desk. Very clean rooms and I did not experience any noise from other rooms or from outside. Whenever I'm in Brisbane, this is the best hotel to get.

This hotel is a great find - located in the centre of the Brisbane CBD and offers apartments and rooms. Rooms are quiet with double glazing. Very short walking distance to shops and business areas. No in-house restaurant but the Cafe outside the main entrance has excellent food and is open from 630am until late at night. Concierge 24hours per day with good security. Car parking is great and they retrieve your car on request. Secure car parking at cost of $22 per night but well worth it.

I will be staying here from now on. Good rates for 3 nights stay as well.

Room Tip: Ask to be on the higher floors if you want less noise from the street although it is all fairly quie...
