Best in Brisbane
Brilliant stay at an outstanding hotel
Daniel, au1 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Better than the first impression
Upon arrival we were underwhelmed. Dingy downstairs reception was a poor start and the staff for checking in were not available. Parking was a problem as there were no available positions at the hotels (two) or in the street. Getting into and out of the parking area for the hotel (and nearby suites) was not easy when finding every spot was taken. We expressed our difficulty in parking only to be told parking would be better at the other address. It was not. In the end we were left stranded without parking at the hotel or in the street. Did anyone care? No. We were surprised that we were not staying at the address of 37 Balfour Street. In fact a few doors away. Entering our room which was noisy, dark and smelt of must, we were disappointed. The fridge and coffee making area was difficult to use. Not a great start. However, the hotel did grow on us after getting accustomed to facilities and decor we did not expect. The position of the hotel was not exactly classy or inviting. Shops were within a reasonable walk and the walk to the river was easy. Our expectations were much higher and not met. The bed was comfortable and we were able to close internal doors to almost overcome the noise and provide complete darkness. Having breakfast at the main building gave a far better perspective of the hotel. Breakfast was first class and the staff likewise. The building at 37 Balfour Street too also created a feeling more in line with the tariff and hotel description. Noise a problem.

Beautiful boutique hotel
Comfortable bed, easy parking, good location. Breakfast on veranda was outstanding and rooftop bar for guest only was lovely. Spent a couple of hours up there reading and relaxing.
