Location, service and good vibes

Location is perfect right in the middle of Southbank, right near the cinemas and food! Great service and cleanliness and facilities. Pool vibes and drinking area is also fun for a night out with the girls/boys

Beautiful hotel in great location

Pros: How modern and nicely appointed it is.
Location: Very close to all Southbank and West End have to offer, 10/15 city walk to city.
This is a beautiful hotel in the heart of Southbank. It's close to great restaurants and lots to see and do. In fact I much prefer to stay here than in Brisbane CBD. The pool and pool-side bar are highlights as is how nicely the rooms are appointed. Even though our room this time was looking the other direction, I have stayed before in a city view room which was amazing. Overall a great place to stay. The price reflects that it's a very nice hotel but you can find some specials and last minute deals occasionally.

Great spot close to everything

Great room, great location, good price. Found the valet to be pricey considering it was compulsory to use if you had a vehicle there. Otherwise great!

Nice spot, close to south bank outdoor activities

Gym is below expectations. Would personally find an alternative with better gym or access to a commercial local gym
