Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

On the positive side, the room is 'cozy' and suitable for the solo traveller. However, hotel policies are very dated. I travel a lot, both here and overseas. It has been years since any hotel has charged a 'security' fee of more than $1 in any country I have been to. It is outrageous to charge $100AU for 'security' on a room that is fully paid, prior to arrival. The cost of the room being marginally more expensive than the 'security'. To add insult, it will be 14 days before I am reimbursed, and I'm sure it will be blamed on the banks (which is not the case for anyone reading this). Outdated policy needs to be removed. Additionally, the amenities are wanting. Laundry facilities are great, if you are staying a few days or more. But there are no other facilities. No gym, no pool, no signage to the advertised spa. For the price paid, the Ibis Styles offers far better value for money.

I had to go to reception to get my own clean towels. No house cleaning done at all. For a 4 star hotel rating i say maybe a star rating of 2.5 tops is all it deserves. To be very honest I have nothing nice to say about this hotel.

Stayed here for 3 nights. The building is undergoing renovations, so the exterior looked a bit messy, but thankfully check-in was easy and the room was cozy enough. Paid a little extra for a room with a private terrace, which was unfortunately nothing more than an outdoor eating area with no real views of anything, so not a choice I would've made with hindsight. The location is close to everything and a very good choice for those wanting to explore Brisbane CBD. Overall I had a pleasant stay here

The hotel is in a good position near to central Brisbane and trian stations from the airport. The room was not very big but had everything you needed and it was clean and tidy. The staff very helpful and friendly. Good hotel.

We had a quick overnight trip to Brisbane and didn’t want to spend a fortune on a room we wouldn’t spend much time in. The price point of the George Williams makes in very affordable. Close to many dining options and public transport. The room we stayed in was small but suited our needs. It has a comfortable bed and large TV. The room was clean and tidy. We would stay here again.

The location is great, right in the heart of the city. The staff are friendly and there is a restaurant / bar on the ground floor. The room was small but clean and nicely presented. However the walls must be thin as I could hear everything my neighbours were saying. Other than that I had a nice stay of 4 nights and the price was great. Would stay here again.

Do not attempt to take a large car if you are expecting to get into the carpark. This would have to be the worst untidiest carpark in the city at a cost of $28 per night! If you decide to venture into the basement carpark get in early as there are only approx 12 spots available. Upon arrival we were greeted by a friendly receptionist who assisted us well. However we were not advised of the $100 security deposit beforehand which covers damages etc. Not sure where $100 would help. You can choose to pay this in cash and get it back when you check out, or you can have them take it from your card instantly but wait up to 5 business days for it to appear back on your card! Don't get excited about a large room. This would have to be the smallest hotel room I have ever stayed in. There is no view because of the blinds, if there was a view then it would have been the brick wall. The tv was very large.. probably bigger than the room itself! The shower was ok however trying to get the temp right was a nightmare. I had it perfect only for it to turn instantly boiling hot after about 30sec. Instant red mark left on my shoulder. Bed was comfortable. We were close to Suncorp which is why we stayed there, however we wouldnt stay again.
