No time to write about the busy day Brisbane with Melbourne Cup - but I don't want you to wait another minute to see the Famed French Fascinator - hot off the Cote d'Azure and already on its way home in a box. I'll pull it out again for Derby day 2012! Melbourne Cup was amazing - win and place separated by a whisker and show/also ran the same - …
... the Street Beach, a man made beach with pools and sand etc. Eventually got on the ferry and went on the river. Back at the hotel in time for Happy Hour and then out for dinner. Stopped at George Square to watch the Navy cadets band play and then a sunset ceremony. The young girl singing had an amazing voice. No Byron Bay availability so we are going on a river cruise to the Koala Sanctuary ...
... We figured that we were better off being in a warm car than outside so decided to drive longer than originally intended. After about 700km for the day we stopped at 10 Mile Rocks Rest Area, arriving just after dark. A nice spot, big, with toilets. We didn't think it was as cold so perhaps after one night, we are acclimatizing – no? Mind you, we turned on the inbuilt gas heater in the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mantra South Bank Brisbane
My whole family was impressed with the apartments at the Saville. Very modern, clean and spacious. We got into Brisbane early around 9am and we were pleasantly surprised when Reception told us that our apartment is ready and we can check-in early, and another bonus was that when I inquired if we can have a late check-out and I was expecting to pay for it , the receptionist let us have a complimentary late check-out at about 1pm because the next guests won't arrive until 3pm. This suited us just great - so with an early check-in and a late check-out, they've really made our trip to Brisbane great and we will definitely stay here again the next time we're in Brisbane.
My fiance's engagement ring was stolen from the locked boot of my vehicle when it was valet parked by the Saville's personnel. The Saville and their insurers denied any responsibility for the theft despite their personnel being the only people who had access to the vehicle and its keys at the time the theft occurred.
I would strongly recommend that customers avoid this hotel.
Great Value, Well Appointed
We came over to see U2 in concert and were thoroughly impressed with the Saville.
It was so central to the amenities without being in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the city.
The rooms were immaculate as well as the whole hotel. The staff were all very helpful, which was good seeing that we were out-of-towners, assisting us with directions and short-cuts of Brisbane. We even left a jacket behind and they were so quick to have it returned to us in Perth.
We will definitely be staying here again when we return to Brisbane without a doubt.
I was very happy with my stay at the Saville. My partner and I stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights, and sure it was expensive, but well worth it. We found it quick and easy to check in and out. The room was excellent, we had a two bedroom apartment with a fabulous city view. All mod con's were provided, such as flat screen TV's in lounge and bedroom, fully kitted out kitchen, dishwasher, etc., along with comfortable beds. The location was excellent, within easy walking distance of Brisbane city centre. Also, Southbank has an abundance of restaurants nearby, so lots of options for dining out. The staff were extremely attentive and helpful. I have nothing but good things to say about the Saville. We would definitely stay there again.
I had huge problems with my booking. The Saville couldn't find my travel agents booking which was made via their website 'it got lost in their system' and when i contacted them several times to see if it had been sorted out they never returned my phone calls when they said they would. On top of this the shower screen wasn't properly sealed and water leaked all over the bathroom floor. It was also quite expensive compared to what I could have paid at Rydges next door. Would never stay there again.
For anyone staying more than a day or two in Brisbane, I'd recommend this hotel highly. It has absolutely everything you need for a really comfortable stay. Our suite had double bedroom with TV, bathroom, lounge (flat screen TV, DVD, stereo etc) with breakfast bar and fully equipped kitchen corner including fridge, sink, dishwasher, microwave, electric rings, kettle, toaster, plus washer, drier, iron and ironing board. Everything was new and high spec. Staff were quick to supply an extra cafetiere ('coffee plunger') and a clothes drier for the balcony on request. There is broadband access at a small charge, and air con. The hotel is right on the South Bank (some suites have river views), just 2 mins from South Bank or South Brisbane rail stations and only a 10 min walk from the city centre. Our suite had a view of the railway line but with the windows closed there was no noise. The hotel restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and there is a good room service menu. But there are plenty of good restaurants nearby and a small grocery store to buy breakfast supplies. A relaxed place to stay.
A fantastic location
This hotel is located at South Bank, the best part of Brisbane to visit. Although the hotel does not have a particularly great view (aim for the highest floor that you can, on the city side), it is in a good location -- not in the centre of downtown, but walking distance to the downtown (aobut 10 minutes away). Because the hotel is located at South Bank, there are many restaurants nearby. The hotel is new. It is an all suite hotel, so the rooms are a decent size. There is an outdoor heated lap pool and gym on level 2. The service was particularly good, and the hotel restaurant (called Stone) was exceptional.
Nice Interior but very noisy
First impressions of the 2 bedroomed apartments were that they were very modern, well equipped and just what was needed. However by night that changed as the apartment was on the corner of the hotel which is situated on a crossroads so four lots of traffic revving up at all hours, also near a police and fire and rescue station so sirens going at all hours and a train line running directly behind the hotel. They did offer to move us but only 2 floors up in the same position for which there would be very little gain. Not the best hotel to choose if you want a quiet relaxing 2 bedroomed apartment. Very helpful staff, swimming pool, and gym great.
We stayed at the saville southbank for one night in a one bedroom apartment and it was good. Its next door to rydges which is next to the brisbane convention centre so its in a good spot and you are about 3 mins walk to southbank and QPAC. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes nearby and a bottle shop which we were happy about and the cinema is just down the road too. Saville's carpark was full so we had to park at the convention centre and that cost $10 for 24 hours, but it was $20 for saville's anyway.(Anywhere you stay in brisbane, you have to pay for parking). It was a bit of a hassle to leave the bags with the porter, then drive a few minutes down the road to get a park, then walk back to the saville and check in but despite the fact that after all that we had to wait 25 mins for our room to be ready, our bags were already in our room when we did get up to our suite. The rooms are very modern, art deco featuring LCD TVs in the lounge and the bedroom, dvd player and mini hifi, pay per view movies, modern kitchen with bar stools instead of a dining table which kinda gives you more space, office desk and chair with phone, lounge with big bay windows overlooking the street, balcony off the master bedroom which also overlooks the street and a bathroom/laundry/toilet/bath/shower combo which was quite a good size also. We were on the 4th floor and although you couldnt see the river, which is a browny colour not like an ocean view anyway, you had good views of the city. The suite pretty much had everything except foxtel which wouldve been great on the lcd tvs, but we were only there for one nite to catch a show at the concert hall, so it didnt matter. The only flaw with these ultra modern suites these days is they tend to be a bit bland and cold, they dont really have many pictures on the wall or ornaments etc that give it a more homey feel, but that is the style these days, so what can you do. Staff were friendly and the buffet breaky was good although they need to top things up quicker. You had to ask for more coffee, juice, bacon, eggs etc. to be refilled and there wasnt much variety compared with other hotel buffet breakys, (where was the eggs benedict with hollandaise sauce?, my favourite) but overall it was good. We had a late checkout so we left our bags at reception and went to the southbank markets and my girlfriend bought a watch that stopped working when we got home (what do you expect?!), and there is a huge lagoon you can swim in which would be good if you had kids, the saville pool is only a lap pool on the 2nd floor so the lagoon at southbank is the go. After that we went and got the car and the porter put the bags in it and then it was all over. Im in the tourism industry and have stayed at quite a few resorts, good and bad, but on the whole, if you can afford the money for a room at the saville southbank you wont be dissappointed.
