The Denison Boutique Hotel offers luxury accommodation that will take you back in time. Built in 1885 it has been beautifully brought back to life. Starting with the choice of being picked up from the station or airport in a 1938 Rolls Royce, then delivered to our establishment which is surrounded by roses and hedged gardens. Each room with their 4.8m high ceilings and period style furnishings will give you the relaxed feeling of being some where totally luxurious. The Denison Boutique Hotel provides for our guests the highest quality comforts, a king size four posted bed, two person spa, 42” plasma television and wireless internet, while complemented with a high standard of friendly service. All of these features and benefits, including a gourmet breakfast for each guest daily will complete your experience.

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.

This is one of the best places we have stayed at for a romantic getaway for a couple, soon as we opened the door it was a “wow” factor, bed was massive, spa was excellent and we felt like a King & Queen. Definitely will be returning and highly recommend

This colonial styled hotel is a delight to visit. The furnishings, the extremely high ceilings, the big 4 poster, very comfy bed, the spacious rooms and the spa bath made for a beautiful atmosphere. Unfortunately our spa had been fixed during the day and despite the best efforts of onsite staff the air lock couldn’t be sorted but it was neither here nor there to us. The Manager wanted to give us another room and was really concerned about the lack of facility. The offer was genuinely appreciated but not necessary. We were disturbed once through the night by a passing goods train but the thick walls toned down the noise and we decided it was a small price to pay for the experience of being here. All in all - a great time was had by all.

The photos on line must have been photoshopped as the actual hotel looked heaps different to what we were expecting. We were expecting a huge garden with areas to go for a wander. What we had is a very small garden (nicely manicured) and no areas to walk or relax. Directly opposite a main pub, on a busy road and in the middle of an industrial area. The actual building does look lovely and has a lot of character. The room we stayed in has very high ceilings, a 4-poster bed and a spa bath. The tv had poor reception but we managed to fill the time up in other ways. We didn't have a meal as this was unavailable during our stay but the room for eating looked really quaint and old fashioned, just as our room did too.

Dear Sandy, thank you for taking time to leave us your feedback, we are happy to hear you loved the rooms and building. As we are the old admin office for the railway since 1885 we unfortunately cannot escape our heritage. Our photos are not photoshopped and are actually very accurate depictions of our small boutique Hotel. We are sorry to hear that you thought there was a huge garden to wander, we have a small manicured garden that is lovely for relaxing and taking in the sun. We unfortunately do not have a kitchen so we can not provide meals but we are situated across the road from the great western which have lovely food and service, we also provide a continental breakfast in the morning in our dining room. Thank You, Have a lovely day.

We had an overnight stay at the Denison Boutique Hotel , the Hotel was clean and well kept , earplugs on the dresser set off a few alarm bells though , its located close to the train track and we heard 2 trains overnight, it overlooks a quite industrial area also , there was a lovely big spa in the room but the bath salts had to be purchased (not complimentary) thats a first for us many options for accommodation in Rockhampton probably will try somewhere else next time

The Denison hotel is a beautifully restored heritage hotel. Large well appointed rooms with charming decor and spa, it is our go to hotel when staying in Rockhampton. The area around the hotel is not much but this means little, the comfort and luxury of the rooms outweighs the slightly run down area. The 2’ thick stone walls keep the outside noise at bay giving you an oasis of calm. Super comfortable king bed and spa tub add to the total comfort and ambiance. The pub across the road does great steaks and is definitely worth a visit for dinner. We’ll be back.

An old railway training building re equipped as a hotel. Rooms are old fashioned four poster beds etc. Victorian furniture for character!. The spa bath in the room was unusual but separate toilet made it workable. Breakfast at $10 was a bargain.

My partner and I arrived at the Denison boutique hotel at 6:20pm. It was after hours so we had to use the after hours check in but this was okay. We typed a password into a safe and a key to our room dropped. We made our way to our room. It was very nice, big and spacious. Huge tub. Lots of little things in the room for purchase, fully stocked fridge. Very nice. The only disadvantage about this hotel is the location - it is in a very industrial area and by a railroad so it was somewhat loud in the morning. We did however have a wonderful stay and would come again.

Charming period Hotel in Rockhampton that is well worthy staying in. Check In was swift and with a smile. Everything is clearly explained. The rooms are very large and very well appointed. I doubt you will find a property in Rockhampton with such high and period style decor. 4 Poster beds are absolutely the bees knees for comfort, crisp cotton sheets and the rooms smell clean and fresh. Nice quality towels and a good shower with lots of hot water. Theres a great mini bar/snacks and the pricing is most reasonable. Theres a buffet continental bfast on for $10. Will definately stay here again

A lovely old building with smashing rooms - all needs catered for and wanted for nothing. Our room did smell a bit musty but not worthy of complaint - just of note. Also our aircon had a mind of it's own and we were hot all night - I did mention it the following day and they receptionist was very apologetic and told me off (in jest) for not calling her in the evening and letting her know - my fault entirely. I have seen comment in other reviews concerning the train noise. Well, if you do book here you should do your research and know that the railway line is mere meters away. There is, in my humble opinion, no excuse for not knowing that and therefore do not complain. On the positive side - there was only one train late in the evening that we heard although my wife assures me there were others but their noise was drowned out by my snoring! We had dinner at the pub across the road - friendly staff and food was OK but if you are looking for a great steak that Rockhampton is famous for you won't get it here. Would certainly return - love the rooms. Thank you.

Dear Sharky12, Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We went straight away to check the aircon as they had recently been serviced, and found that the code from the remote had been accidentally changed so it was not communicating with the unit. It was an easy fix and we would have been more than happy to have had it fixed for you on the night or even changed the room for you. Please let us know next time you are coming, we very much look forward to welcoming you back
