Great position, close to everything.

Staff were great, particularly Georgie. Had a problem with a blocked sink, dealt with quickly and we were offered another room but declined. Got free internet instead. :)

Advertised Prices on Wotif are misleading

While the room rate was competitive, and notwithstanding me asking via the wotif website while booking, the cost of parking on their site was not apparent. This information was declared very far down in the conditions, and took the receptionist at the hotel a good few minutes to find and show me. I then purchased parking for three days, placed the green docket in the car as proof while the car was parked, only to receive two "first & final" memos placed under my windscreen each morning, threatening me that the vehicle will be towed away, at my cost? The wotif website for this hotel advertised free internet access, however what is not made clear is that access is free for only 24 hours, from the time of logging on, thereafter the guest must purchase further access. My stay was over a period of 96 hours.

Beautiful view!

Loved this hotel. Was upgraded for no particular reason which always makes you feel a bit special ! The room was beautiful, the view of the botanic gardens and the Brisbane river was breathtaking. It was in such a great location and was a 10 minute walk from everything I needed. Would definitely stay again !

Convenient location

Pros: Central
Cons: Reception staff
Location: Good location
This is the 2nd time I have stayed at the hotel and every time I have to wait a considerable period of time to get served at the service desk when you only have one person in attendance. Quite off putting for future stays

Comfortable stay close to everything

Pros: Location, comfort, clean safe, cool
Cons: Need coffee making facility in the room. A body M would be good.
Location: On the edge of the CBD. Able to walk everywhere, shopping, food, sights, South Bank.
I had a 5 day stay in Brisbane and struck lucky with this choice of accommodation. Roomy 1 bedroom apartment, great facilities n the unit, excellent pool, and a very comfy bed. Close to everything especially the river and gardens 3 minutes walk away. Plenty of food choices around too.

Bumped, Downgraded and Filthy.

Pros: Central Location.
Cons: Cleanliness, hygiene, reservation management.
Location: We were able to walk to the CBD in a number of minutes and there are many fantastic restaurants nearby.
On arrival on Friday we were bumped to Oaks Felix and downgraded to a single room (318). We had purposely booked a room with a tub, but there was no tub. Same rate. The room was filthy. Someones toenails on the balcony under the table, the balcony had a dirty floor and walls, food stuck on the curtains, very dirty windows, mouldy bathroom, and the hallway on that floor smelled like rotting refuse. The balcony door was almost impossible to open and the ceiling fan in the bedroom shook and screamed like it was going to fall off. It clearly says on my booking that I could not change the booking but apparently the hotel doesn't have to follow the same rules. Very disappointed until now I had highly regarded this brand.
