A short walk to Southbank for a great family meal and a movie. Breakfast available at the reception level bistro. Would not hesitate to stay there again on...

We stayed here for 2 nights for a business event held at the Brissie Entertainment Centre and it was fantastic. We were in a 2 bedroom apartment only 5 mins walk from the venue which was perfect. The restaurant downstairs has a fairly simple menu for brekky and the food was delicious, although within 10 mins walk there are many...

Stayed here for my 20yr high school reunion at the Fox Hotel which was just a short walk away. Room was modern with everything you could need. Even had a mini bar. Our balcony was on the western side so we didn't face the train line. West end and Southbank close by. Car park was a little tricky. Staff friendly...

One bedroom apartment that had many modern appliances and a decent bathroom shower. Bed was comfortable. The hotel is about 3 blocks from Southbank Parklands or a 30 minute walk to the Queens Street and the CBD. Lots nearby for families with the parklands, museums, galleries and cinema a short walk away.

I feel bad leaving a bad review because reception was nice. My biggest and most devastating problem was hotels.com said that EVERY room included a living room, cookware/dishware/utensils, desk, DVD player, full sized refrigerator, separate dining area, washer/dryer and more. When we got to the room we were shocked, it was just a bed, a mini fridge, TV, microwave and...

I had stayed here before and was very happy with the set up so as my partner & some workmates were going to Brisbane for a Conference at the Exhibition Centre I suggested they stay here. They were all impressed with the decor and proximity & the only time they heard a train was a very long freight train. Kathy...
