  • Loved the place... had a clean room & loved the rooftop bar
    Ronda A 7/03/2021
  • Well positioned and short walk from Roma Street Rail Station. Comfortably and clean with friendly staff. Also you get great views of the Brisbane River and Brisbane CBD from the level 5 kitchen / eating and balcony level. And while on this level you can swim and also enjoy the views of the Brisbane River and Brisbane itself.
