Good hotel! Big room I got and friendly staff. OK laundry room with free books. Please swap your old ones if you are able. Good location! They don't have a restaurant at the moment. Be sure to take the free ferry around brisbane, great way to get around.

Easy Uber ride from the airport to the hotel. Great location to walk to Southbank over the bridge or catch a ferry to explore the Brisbane River area. Clean, modern bathroom, old-fashioned lamps on the bedside tables were a little out of place but functional. Minimal toiletries provided, those of the female race with longhair would prefer more shampoo and...

Booked to stay here for a couple of nights. Upon arrival we found ourself given the wrong room - spa room booking but no spa. Contacted reception after finding number (no compendium) and was told there was a maintenance issue. Manager came to see us and said we could move to spa room the next day.

Drove eight hours from out west. Booking had been accidently cancelled but rebooked with upgrade no problem. Have to acknowledge that the hotel is currently being renovated. We don't spend a lot of time in the room when we are away. Room was great, convenience to Queen Street Mall and everywhere else was fantastic. Car parking normal fees for city...

This hotel is nothing like described on the website and it doesn't look like on the pictures at all. First of all the reception area is a construction site and the guy on the reception doesn't even greet you or say anything at all. He just stand behind his desk and ignores every guest entering and leaving the hotel. Parking...

The room is functional enough but if I had any other choice, this hotel would be one of the last in my list. The complimentary coffee tastes good though. But overall, this was a bit of a disappointment.

This hotel is in such a wonderful location. Just a few minutes walk and you are in the botanic gardens or Queen street mall. The rooms are huge and clean. The hotel is very basic but it was perfect for a weekend of catching up with family.Hotel staff very helpful and polite, If you have an early flight into Brisbane...

At present this hotel is offering very good deals and there's a reason why. The hotel has become part of The Great Southern Hotel Group. Until the changeover is complete, business people or those who prefer some organisation should give it a miss. On the other hand, we had an excellent one night stay at a hugely discounted price. Our...

From the moment we entered we didnt have a very good impression and it only git worse from there. We were booked into an executive spa room on the twelfth floor, when we opened the door, the view over the river was amazing. The room was tired and not appealing at all, when we closed the curtain there was vomit...

Was very difficult to find as there is no signage for Rendeavous Hotel. All signs on building say Great Southern Hotel! Hotel is badly in need of a renovation. Restaurant/cafe was closed, rooms are very tired with stained carpet and mould in shower. Aircon didn't work well. Bed was clean and comfy at least. Car park is very tight. Location...
