We booked two nights to go to a wedding in Brisbane. We expected a room with a view that was similar to the photo on the hotel website and, in the special requests, asked for 'a room with a nice view if possible'. The view from the balcony turned out to be of of the fencing of the room opposite about 2.5 metres away. We had been 'upgraded' from the room we had chosen (a suite) to a 'loft suite'. This was not really an upgrade as there were only 2 of us and we didn't have any need for the upper 'loft bedroom'.
The room, we were told, was over 25 years old and it looked it. They offered us a newer 'business room'. They are much smaller, but the fittings and furnishings are much newer and it was worth it. (The view was of a block of units, but at least they're about 15 metres away.) We understand now that the hotel is in a busy area and would be prepared for that.
At the time of booking we knew nothing other than what was on the website and to be fair the hotel is of about the same standard as the other two in the area (my brother stayed at the nearby Toowong Central).

The hotel is very handily placed for shops, restaurants, public transport etc. but overall it was a bit disappointing after having seen pictures on the website.

Room Tip: If you want space and don't mind tired looking décor and facilities, the suites are a good option. If you want up-to-date rooms and facilities and won't be spending a lot of time in the room, the smaller 'business' rooms are a much better option. These are at the back of the hotel and the noise from the busy street is practically non-existent

Great location - only 5 minutes walk to the train station, bus stops and river buses.
Rooms had everything you needed and were clean and comfortable.
Greg the manager was very helpful.
Pool area small and shaded.

There was nothing too bad about this place, but lots of little annoyances. They claimed to have foxtel (satellite tv), but it wasn't on in my room. I think the rooms are quite variable. Mine was very average, facing an internal courtyard. And it had a door to the neighbouring room, which is handy if you have kids in there, but is just a source of noise if you don't (I could hear my neighbours' conversations).
The room wasn't cleaned properly, and very annoyingly they didn't replace the tea bags and milk. So no cup of tea on my second night - very mean! Wireless broadband access could apparently be purchased at reception, but reception closes at 7pm. And don't bother with the breakfast.
So not good value. However, the location is good, close to train station and major roads (with parking), and good options for pubs, cafes and restaurants.

We only had 2 nights at this accommodation and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Nothing was a problem for the staff if they could help you in any way. We found the self contained suites very comfortable but a little small for 4 adults. But with saying that, it was all we needed for our 2 night stay. It is very close to the Shopping Centre, but away from the noisy traffic area. Transport is only a stone though away with being close to a shopping centre. We would happily stay again.

My family and I have stayed here for the weekend to watch the Brisbane Roar play. First time we have stayed and received an upgrade. Fantastic rooms great value for money. You would have paid twice as a much in the city. Will stay here again.

Room Tip: Pool is great. Close to shops and transport.
