Not Quite There

Unfortunately it just wasn't up to scratch. The mattress was lumpy, the air-con didn't work and the TV remote didn't work. All rooms are meant to be non-smoking but a strong cigarette smoke smell came under our door from the adjoining room. It certainly doesn't match other 4 star hotels we've stayed in. Oh well - you live and learn. It was conveniently placed to what we wanted it for.

Wonderful location and we really enjoyed our stay. The rooms are a little dated and there was an offensive smell in the common areas but everything you need is included. Overall, good value for money.

Okay

The bed was comfortable and the room was okay (not as small as some) but there was no table or chairs no place to operate your computer. The amenities were very basic. The good things about this place was the closeness to the small shopping complex that had a large supermarket, bakery and food outlets. For people interested in action at the Gabba (Brisbane Cricket Ground) Aussie Rules Football, Cricket and other events. This place is perfect.

Practical and a Little Bit Dowdy

Two of us stayed in a studio for two nights. First the positive: * Very, very cheap especially being so close to the city etc. * Excellent location, very central to everything, including public transport, food and shopping. * Lovely staff. * Free parking. * Bed was surprisingly comfortable. * The room amenities and furnishings were adequate. * Windows that open for fresh air, not just aircon. Now, the issues: * Very, very small room, even for a studio. * No view. * Very worn everything (from paint to carpets to furniture) which is surprising as the complex is not very old. * EXTREMELY cheap and nasty furniture. E.G. wobbly little wooden table and 2 chairs, cheap looking metal frame bed (which was comfortable). * Small TV. * No wifi. * Precisely 2 of everything in the kitchen. Designed for 2 people, but it might have been nice to have a couple of spare coffee cups. * Can be difficult to find and to work out where to park. Park in the Coles carpark, go up the lift and look around for reception, then move the car to the appropriate secure parking (which was always open as far as we could see so probably wasn't that secure) after you receive instructions at check in. Overall, I would definitely return for a short stay if it remains as cheap as it is but not if it was any more expensive.

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

When you arrive, park in the Coles carpark off GIBBON STREET and head up to ground floor. Then look around and you will see the hotel reception. After you check in, you can then park the car (following instructions from the reception staff) and take the lift up to your room.

Family holiday

Room was bit average and congested but still alright for a couple to stay overnight. Ladies at reception were very polite and helpful. Good for a getaway.

Extremely pleased

Had forebodings before check in after reading all the negative comments, but to our pleasant surprise it was nothing of the sort to us seasoned travelers. Very comfortable and equal to a more expensive top hotel. Everything modern and convenient including a washing machine and dryer in our studio room. Major bus stop opposite in to town and convenient supermarket downstairs. Will be coming back in the future.
