Reviewed yesterday NEW

The reception staff were very knowledgeable about the area, very polite and willing to sort any problem. They made us feel like a very welcome. The room was clean but average quality. The bed was uncomfortable but lucky we were only staying for one night - would need a better bed to stay longer.

Spent 5 nights here and wish I had paid a little more to stay at another hotel. My room was fine but the aircon was stuck at 24 degrees (cool mode) which is way too warm in Qld at this time of year. The response from reception was that all rooms are set at that temperature & when I asked...

My room was on the 14th floor which overlooked the river and views to the Southbank which was superb. The hotel was undergoing renovations in the reception areas and after that the remainder of the rooms are being upgraded. My room was clean light and very spacious. Value for money 10/10. The staff where also very helpful. At the price...

I have a feeling I've stayed here before, as the location seemed familiar, which is why I booked it. A great location, not far from the ferry terminal to get the ferry to southbank. If you're a slow walker like me, it's about a 10 min walk to either central station or roma st station as well as king George...

It's was terrible! Our first night we were supposed to have a spa room with river views - when we checked in they had given our room to someone else. Renovations were taking place at the time, a workman was using a nail gun less than a metre away from me at the lifts. He also wasn't wearing any safety...

Pool only half full but told by staff it was open to customers, this was an accident waiting to happen. The bed was atrocious, worse night I've ever had in a hotel , when we approached the staff we were told all the...

At the time of writing, this hotel is undergoing renovations on the ground floor so the restaurant is closed. The hotel is under new management. We were upgraded to a larger room and any noise from the renovations taking place did not impact on us in our room. The room was very clean, comfortable bed and a spotless bathroom. The...

Great Price and location but unfortunately the 'greatness' then went down hill. When we booked it did not say on the Hotel was undergoing renovations and so we walked into a construction site. They are trying to do their best through it all but we also were told there was no food available at the restaurant. The parking is terrible...

Our room was small with dated furniture, a problematic TV remote and a brief power problem. However, the bathroom had been pleasantly refurbished, the room was clean and the minor problems referred to were addressed by hotel staff within 3 minutes of a call. All hotel staff we encountered were, without exception, pleasant and helpful. We had been informed before...
