This is our second stay at the Empire Apartments. From the initial booking, to the communication leading up to our stay has been exceptional. The service from all the staff on check-in was outstanding customer service. We are staying in a 2 bedroom apartment and the rooms, living, dining and kitchen are very spacious and clean. Very central location to all facilities and restaurants. The only place to stay in Rockhampton! Thanks Empire for another comfortable, relaxing get away!

One Bed Apartment was super clean roomy and we enjoyed our stay with friendly staff who were very helpful. Best accommodation in Rockhampton and possibly the newest. Will always return to Empire when we revisit.

The apartment is the official accommodation representative for the RRR a charity fun run. Obviously a very busy weekend for the Empire and Rockhampton. Great rooms, lovely staff but two points of contention #1 no guarantee of car parks for guests? Notified via text? #2 no possibility of late check out on day of run because too many people had requested it? Empire official accommodation of running race and you can not offer late check outs to people who are hot and sweaty and desperately need a shower? Was told I could leave my belongings in my car in my non guest allocated car park and attend the race to accommodate check out time ? Great place to stay but clearly not much thought has gone into how to provide great service when busy. I hope the management of Empire take on this feedback and improve.

An excellent hotel located in a great position. Well appointed throughout and stylish design features in apartment accommodation. I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting an above average stay in Brisbane. Loved the roof pool and entertainment area.
