Staff were amazingly helpful and polite. They allowed us to check in early and leave our car in the carpark after checking out, while we spent a few more hours in Brisbane. Restaurant was reasonably priced and good food.

very small room

Pros: the staff were friendly. great positon
Cons: clean mould around water proofing of bath, a bit of an all round freshen up
Location: great location, walking distance to lots of stuff
the room was very small, no shelving to place clothes and even though the rooms were air-conditioned the hallways and lift were very hot staff were very friendly and helpful but found that they didn't know too much about the area. the bath was a half size and the was mould around the sealing of the bath that didn't look that good.

Good location but rooms need work.

Pros: Location, parking
Cons: Test all facilities in each room to ensure they are working before opening up for hire.
My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights. The staff were nice and the hotel location is excellent. Our room had a few issues, firstly the TV only had two working channels. I reported it and the aerial cable was replaced which resolved the issue. The second issue was the bedside lamps were not plugged in and I had to move the bed to plug them in. The front door also had to be pulled close as the closer device was worn. The bed wasn't comfortable and the pillows were the cheapest you can buy. Finally, We stayed during the Esater break and management decided to give the housekeeping and restaurant staff this time off so there was no breakfast service or housekeeping. I assume they did not have enough customers to cover the holiday pay rates of these staff.
