Hotel very close to Everything

Pros: Friendly Staff although we only stayed the one night.
Cons: Access into the shower, past the sliding shower screen could be a problem for some people, maybe bath could be removed & disabled shower fitted.
Location: Perfect location for QPAC Theatre , Railway Station for day trip to Gold Coast, just walk across the bridge to Casino & Brisbane CBD, Southbank close
We have used this Hotel before because we live on the Gold Coast & when we come up to Brisbane to see a show at QPAC it is the ideal location, we travel up by Train get off at South Brisbane & it is only a few minutes walk.

Sporting Event

This Hotel offered quality affordable accommodation for a family on a budget that was close to all the highlights of the City (including West End), with easy access to the major motorways for a quick escape to the outer suburbs as required for business, sport or pleasure. It was a quick 10min drive from the Hotel via the M3 to QSAC Stadium at Nathan to compete in the Queensland Track & Field Championships.

Now disappointed - used to like it.

Cons: The staff to care. New beds.
This hotel was good. But prices have increased during a time when standard has dropped. Staff don't seem to care too much about this. If it were only $100 a night it would be acceptable, but it's usually much more expensive than this. Sadly we try avoid this hotel now.

Could not accomodate me

Pros: The location
Cons: Help people out if this problem occurs
There was some mix up between what I booked online and the itinerary the hotel had. The result was that when I arrived on 7 oct to Brisbane and went to the hotel, I was informed that my booking was on 3 october. A date totally unrelated to my trip. As a result I was charged for the 2 nights that I was wrongly booked but my main dissapointment was that there was no rooms for the 7th and 8th October that I wanted. Which I suppose is not the staffs fault but they made no effort to accomodate me elsewhere. To at least point me in the right direction to another hotel. I had to work things out myself. I must commend them though on calling me later as I had left my wallet at the hotel. So thank you for that.

Nice hotel, meals well priced and tasty.

Close to convention centre, quiet and easy to access. Room was hot on arrival as westerly sun on glass doors took time to cool. Meal service was tasty however tray did not have the usual white liner, rather two sheets of newspaper!!!!
