The room size is not large, but is was tidy, in good order, everything worked, air-conditioning was cold, bed was comfortable. The restaurant provided a good standard of meals...

My wife and I needed one night's accommodation in Brisbane and booked here as a moderately priced option near to where we needed to be. We weren't really expecting too much but were delighted with how well the room was furnished and the general high tone to the venue. A very comfortable bed and pillows made for a good night's...

very polite staff, beautiful bar, nice restaurant and rooms but we went just for a days rest from travelling, intending to stay by the pool which the hotel recommended to us. The pool was shabby, not clean and unsafe as there were loose and uneven tiles all around, it requires a complete makeover or filling in, it let the hotel...

Great view of the river, but a light straight outside the window meant we had to close the curtains and not enjoy the view. For the extra we paid it could have justified a corner room. Service was OK, but not brilliant. Great location near the Breakfast Creek Hotel.
