We have just had a one night stay here in a beautiful room overlooking the park. For those of us who remember old world charm, this place is a must. It is spotlessly clean and comfortable beyond words. It puts the big hotel chains to shame. Love this place, will definitely come again.

Dear PatsyLong Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. Royal on the Park is one of Brisbane’s oldest hotels and we are very proud of it. Whilst over the years we have done refurbishments, we have tried to keep that ‘old world’ charm and feel of the property, which I'm glad you appreciated. We hope to see...

We chose the street view room rather than garden view since we weren't spending a lot of time in it. Parking under cover was easy just $30 for each night. The room was quite large with wifi and coffee pod machine, tv etc. Everything seemed quite new and modern. Taxis at the entrance, weekend market in the botanical gardens, 5min...

My first stay and the experience was good. A nice option for a more older style of hotel and a good location with parklands opposite. I booked a junior suite and found this very good and spacious. A little tired here and there but overall great value, clean and up to what I would expect. The restaurant is good, although...

This is an older traditional hotel with classical service. From checking in, help with luggage, getting a limo to the airport, check in/check out were perfect. Staff was sincere and really helpful. Rooms are comfortable and spacious but probably not totally on par with the newest hotel. Outstanding free wi-fri service for multiple pieces of equipment. Perfect location to walk...

Great situation & within easy walking distance of most of Brisbane's sights. However, for a 4/5 star hotel we were very disappointed with the standard. The room had a great view of the gardens opposite but the bathroom left a lot to be desired. The staff on the whole were pleasant & helpful but the couple working in the bar...

Our stay at this delightful hotel was the highlight of our holiday, the best of three we stayed at in Australia. The view from our large sunny room across the park was restful.
