I visited Brissy last month to see Bernard Fanning with some local friends and they organised the hotel for the night. Upon checking in the front desk attendant was very friendly and answered any questions we had. The room was nice - presented well, clean and all the facilities you'd expect. The housekeeping staff were friendly when I asked them...

Visit this hotel every year for work and is the highlight of me year. The hotel reception is just gorgeous - love the old world elegance. Love the chandeliers.

We had a room overlooking the city botanic garden which was great. The room was clean. The bar service was great. They had gardners market in the street beside the hotel and in the botanic gardens (Sun) great for those who like to avoid the busy city.

The location is great. The staff were great; check-in was fast and efficient. Smiles all around. The bed was comfortable. The pool area is VERY noisy due to the extensive building work going on around the hotel. Sadly the good stuff ends there. EVERYTHING is old and worn and DON'T even step into the 'gym' as you'll think you've gone...

I really liked this hotel, it was in a nice part of town. The rooms were nice and the hotel was very nicely decorated. The reception staff let it down a bit, not very friendly and not helpful, the other staff were lovely especially the housekeeping who were very friendly.

I stayed at this hotel 25 years ago and I can say that the hotel has improved with age. The room was great, wonderful a/c - a must on the 30+ degree days while I was there, comfy bed and good water pressure. The view of the park (I paid a bit extra for a park view) was distractingly good....

Just a word of advice for the management. Have a chat to your front of house staff about being friendly and inviting when guests arrive. The older gentleman that I encountered on my arrival was far from that. A grumpy, forced welcome without even a smile was what I was greeted with. Followed by a curt refusal to check me...

Great location central to everything you need. Walking distance to nice eateries and there is a little market on Sunday morning. Hotel staff nice and friendly. Hotel room nice and spacious and the bed was comfortable. The only let down was the shower which wasn't powerful a and was a little dated.
