Pros: It was in close proximity to the cultural centre of south bank and had car parking available
Cons: Rooms should have exhaust fans to clear steam from bathrooms
Location: The hotel was located outside of the cafe/ restaurant and cultural centre of Southbank but was close to walk there. the surroundings were dowdy
The first room we ere given had a very musty damp odour which was unpleasant. the staff upgraded us to a much bigger and comfortable room

Nice Hotel close to all key features of South Bank

Proximity to all the tourist spots in South Brisbane as well as the CBD and West End made this hotel particularly well positioned. Not palatial but quite comfortable and clean.

Close to entertainment area

I booked two double beds,one was a single paid for two adults but room rather small, expected larger for cost.

I was a bit taken back that I was handed a key to my room door and not a swipe card and once inside the only way to lock the door was via a chain on the door. The room was very basic and a bit outdated but comfortable and clean. The staff I encountered were polite and helpful and the breakfast buffet was good. Great position but a bit outdated and was not happy with the lack of security.

Economically priced hotel and convenient location
