    Better than expected”

    After reading some reviews we initially booked elsewhere. Then after exteding our stay in Brisbane we decided to book here . This place is better than expected. Pros - Excellent location right near the Casino and mall - Best value for money. Comfortable and with parking available and late check-out - Friendly and professional staff - Clean room with all the necessities for a comfortable stay. Cons - there is construction still going on across the road. It wasn't too loud for us and didn't bother us. If you're a very light sleeper it might be a problem. - the bed is pretty hard. - the aircon didn't warm up at all. But there was enough blankets to keep warm. Overall a pleasant stay. We will be back.

    Very old and tired furnishings. Beds needed replacing as the springs weren’t great. Lack of glass wear/coffee cups for the members of the group. Thin blankets. All in all wouldn’t stay again and can get better value elsewhere.

    Please be aware that there are night works going on during the night from 6pm to 5am and so there will be noise heard from the rooms. If you are a light sleeper this becomes very difficult. However, the staff were very accommodating and helpful - a special thanks to John, VJ and Jonathan for all your assistance.

    This is an older but perfectly positioned hotel across from the casino (if that's your game). 10-15 minutes walk to QPAC & Southbank. Five minutes to the Queen Street Mall. Very large rooms. Yes a little outdated, but clean and tidy. I hope this hotel has a makeover soon to keep competing with the new hotels being built nearby. Either way it is very good value and so so close to everything. The building is just dated. I have always had helpful & friendly staff.

    Good value. Well situated but with large constuction site across from hotel.”

    This hotel is a little tired once you get past a nice reception & dining area. Riverview room was large and very accommodating but very dated and in need of TLC. Riverview room will not be a river view room once construction across the road is finished. So be aware that if you are staying on the George Street side of hotel that construction commences at 6.30am. Should not worry business travellers. The hotel is perfectly positioned in CBD. Close to mall, near casino, walking distance to Southbank and entertainment precinct. With a full renovation this hotel has very, very good potential. Staff were very helpful and efficient.

Only area I can find to complain was the shower. Had to dance around to get wet, and it took ages for me to properly rinse my hair. Need a bit more pressure and water volume!
