Convenient for Southbank and CBD

Pros: Friendly staff, value for money & location
Cons: The restaurant. Disappointing & misleading menu, poor food & one staff member was having to cover the bar and the dining area.
This is a good place to stay but avoid the restaurant. The staff are friendly and helpful and the location convenient for attending evening shows and other events at QPAC. The standard rooms are fine and the best aspects of the facilities are the free underground parking (essential in Brisbane where severe hailstorms can be a problem) and the pool. There are no river views but the location is good and ideal for visiting the cultural precinct and the CBD. There is a wide choice of accommodation available at reasonable cost for the location. However, if you are looking for scenic views and gardens go elsewhere.

Great Place to meet up with family

Looked after my Granddaughter while her Mum attended a conference. Got a great room close to their room. Was given an upgrade on arrival so had a separate bedroom and small kitchen. Staff were very friendly. As I was on my own with young baby, it was great that I could get meals while baby slept in her pram. Bed was very comfortable. Pity I didn't have more time to enjoy the benefits of the pool. Got to be first choice for the next time I babysit.

Good location, reasonably comfortable and mostly clean. The bathroom and shower were very disappointing- inconsistent hot water depending on other guests turning hot water on and off in their rooms I Guess. The best thing about the hotel is it’s proximity to QPAC, The State Library and Southbank. The free parking on site was very much appreciated too.
