“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014 via mobile

We always knew this place existed though never thought we'd like the food. We always struggle to find a good restaurant around Wynnum that is open on Monday nights so we normally go towards the city. The food is actually good and very accommodating for food intolerances. The service is a bit too casual for the style of restaurant they are trying to provide. Though we will be back!

Stayed June 2014, travelled as a couple

Your comments are very much appreciated. We take on board your comment re our less formal service and do try to find a happy balance with the various types of patrons (motel guests to the trendy ladies) to service. We are proud of the food we serve, under the direction of Executive Chef Paul and regularly vary the menu according to the season. Chef Paul's cheese souffle is a winner, no matter what time of year. Thank you for visiting Sylvia's Restaurant

My husband and I were married at Shangri-La Gardens in April 2014. We are delighted to say we had a perfect wedding day. The professionalism and experience of the staff made the whole process easy and stress-free (as stress-free as planning a wedding can be, anyway!) They handled everything from the sound system for the music, to the table and chair decorations, to the flowers, etc. The hotel accommodation is top-notch - the bridal suite has its own access to reception and the carpark so it was a great space to get ready in the morning with relatives, hair and makeup, and the photographer coming and going. After the ceremony in the garden, the waitstaff did a flawless job with drinks and canapes, and this good service continued on into dinner. The food was delicious, having the benefit of the chefs at Sylvia's restaurant. The Sylvia room was a beautiful venue for the reception - I couldn't believe how beautiful it looked. With a three-course dinner and a 5-hour drinks package, it was very good value. We could not have been happier with how the day turned out.

What a lovely place this is,great food wonderful service, nice dining room and bar. The Motel looked nice too but we live not far away so doubt we would use but would recommend to friends -not far from airport really
We went here on our 44th anniversary and it was a great choice, will definatly go there again, it should be more popular the prices were reasonable. I would imagine its lovely for a wedding or function

Great Motel. I felt safe, rooms were clean and spacious and staff were very welcoming and friendly. Lovely swimming pool. Sylvia's Restaurant was superb. Loved the food - wasn't expecting 5 star menu - couldn't fault it! Serving staff in the restaurant were lovely!

One of us had a training course to attend, and the other had a lovely relaxing holiday. In the evenings we enjoyed the local food and ambiance together. The room was tastefully decorated, and the bathroom was bright and fresh, with neat fittings, and the glass tile light panels a clever innovation.

We found this hotel to be clean, spacious and close to a shopping centre with numreous cafes and supermarkets. Price was also good compared to those within the Brisbane cbd.

The staff were atatnetive, polite and reponsive to anything we asked.

You would need a car if staying here though.

Highly recommend staying here!!

Sylvia's Restaurant and Wine Bar at Shangri-La Gardens, highly recommended. Top food & wine. It is hard to choose between the chocolate desert and the blood orange cake. Order both and share, they are to die for.

Room Tip: Stay in for dinner - best value in Brisbane
