Good value for money - close walking distance to Roma St station, and the CBD with plenty of options to eat and relax in the area around Spring Hill, the only issue I have with venture, Slow to very Slow WiFi.

The place has been refurbished, albeit not totally. The prices were reasonable and free parking helped. The sound proofing of the rooms needs to be addressed, as does the completion of the refurbishments. I'd stay again.

I have stayed at this hotel several times over the past ten years and as recent as May 2017, After this recent stay I received an email that if I booked direct with them via e-mail I would be given a $10 per night discount. As I was intending to stay here later this year I contacted the hotel to...

It was such a comfortable stay. Clean upmarket, refurbished rooms with decent size balcony. Friendly and helpful staff really complimented the standard of service. Location is quite central with plenty of options to eat and relax, bottle shop next door is open till midnight. Hotel has their own restaurant and the meals are quite reasonably priced. Free parking and wifi...

Nice hotel, good value for money - close (walking distance) to metro station (Central - airport line) and the city center. It’s all the way up a hill. My room was nice, with TV and free internet. Front desk is friendly and well organized. There is a small in-house restaurant, which I have not tried.

Thank you for your lovely review and sorry about the hill. There is a free bus during the week but for some reason (only the council knows) it doesn't run on the weekend. See you next time you are in Brisbane

Never again. All the comments about rude front counter staff are true. We found the booking in process very uncomfortable. It was more like and inquisition than a welcoming! Not to mention the room check they do before refunding your room bond the next morning. We are middle aged world travelers NOT teenage punks! There was no respect shown by...

For every bad review we seem to get 10 good reviews so I find it a little difficult to respond to someone who is not happy but I am going to explain a few things to you. I am not responsible for the smoking laws and non smokers like to use the sundeck as well but couldn't in the past...

First of all let's state that if you want to stay in a super flash Hotel with super modern architecture and perfectly manicured rooms..this is NOT the hotel for you. If you are after a comfortable, quiet hotel at a fantastic location close to Brisbane CBD at a fantastic price with amazing "old school" friendly staff, you can NOT to...

Thank from all the staff, it is great that they are appreciated. As for the motel, it is old but recently refurbished so the few bruises (I like that word) give the place character.

We normally use a nearby backpackers for a short stay in Brisbane, but for a few bucks more this place wins hands down. Our ample size first floor double room on the Hope Street side was well away from any traffic noise and featured a large comfortable bed, TV, balcony and efficient air con unit. The bathroom had been recently...

So I stayed here last night for Adele, I paid for a Queen Deluxe the room was alright, but the elevator only fits 5 people at a time, and isn't 24 hours it's closed between 9:30pm-6am & as someone with a disability I wasn't happy when I get back at 11:45 last night.

I am sorry that you had a few issues but you must realise that the building is old and we have done major upgrades in the last 12 months but our prices are still reasonable. As for the lift it is closed from the basement as a security measure for our guests to insure that no strangers have access to...
