Positive Reviews

Top location in the Queensland capital city.

This hotel enjoys a convenient position within Brisbane, close to the CBD and in a pleasant area close to the river. The nearest bus stop is just a three minute walk away, from which you can easily connect to the rest of the city.

Stellar service from all the professional staff.

Everyone working at this place is well trained and polite, always ready to lend a helping hand if you need any assistance. If you encounter a problem with your room it will be fixed right away and without any fuss.

Delicious meals served at the hotel restaurant.

The Balfour Kitchen is a popular restaurant in the local neighbourhood, and with good reason too. The meals served up here are very tasty and the entire dining experience is a pleasurable one, so make sure you book a table!

Negative Reviews

Not much in the way of hotel amenities.

If you're a frequent traveller or have to stay in hotels on business then you might find this hotel lacks the things you rely on. There's no gym, or pool, or any leisure and fitness facilities at all.

The car parking facility is a bit cramped.

Driving to this hotel means you'll have to try and nab yourself a spot in the small car parking facility on offer. If the hotel is busy you might not get a space, and if you do it can be hard work navigating in and out of the car park.

Some of the rooms here are rather small.

Not all of the rooms are created equal here, with some offering you very little space indeed. Try not to bring too much luggage, and check with reception when you arrive to avoid getting lumbered with one of these cramped rooms.
