  • Went to the see the enchanted garden this evening and came away very disappointed. There was over a wait of over 2 hours which is ridiculous. There was very little signage and the queues of people wai...  more »

  • Service is average. I had to ask for another room key card as mine was not working, and the first thing I received was a lecture as to why it was my fault. They hold $100 of your money in case you use the mini bar (which is worth about $30). And you will not get it back for approximately a week. It's like walking into a supermarket and being charged for what you might buy. And $15 a night for parking is another outrageous cost. And don't even get me started on the bad coffee and over priced food. Do yourself a favor and spend your money at any other hotel in Brisbane.
  • Spent about 4 hours exploring today. Stunning gardens, perfect for a BBQ (free facilities) or picnic. Kids loved the playground and water features. Weekend carparking cheap @ $2 hour. Highly recommended day out.
  • Such a beautiful park. Love all the waterways and paths. Very easy to find a private spot here. BBQs are great and there is lots of seating. There is a restaurant too, so you can get coffee. We had a wonderful walk here.
  • This is perhaps the most beautifully designed park I've had the pleasure of visiting. A little oasis of green in a big city, the Roma Street Parkland has winding pathways,sports fields, lakes and picnic areas. In spite of it's popularity, it's winding layout, scattered benches and picnic areas make it easy to find a spot of your own.
  • Lovely gardens and great place for the kids to explore. Affordable parking on the weekend for a family day out. Picnic areas available as well.
