A towering monument on the Brisbane River, the Park Regis North Quay has become a go-to destination for Brisbane bound travellers (be it for business or tourism) since the 24 floor hotel opened in 1998.
We stayed for two nights in a 1 bedroom apartment overlooking the beautiful Brisbane River – blessed with similarly kind weather. The accommodation offered a comfortable King Size bedroom, separated by a stylish Japanese sliding doors (Shōji) from the rest of the apartment – a full kitchen, living room with flat screen TV and DVD player, and spacious bathroom (including a spa bath)… not to mention the fantastic view (not a bad way to wake up in the morning). It was the sort of luxury that would appeal to any traveller – be they entertaining a loved one, their family (the couch was also a pull out bed), or clients during a meeting.
We enjoyed a hot buffet breakfast while on site which offered a fantastic selection of treats – from Eggs Benedict to muffins, cereals, muesli, juices, and the usual goodies: eggs, bacon, sausages, toast and more. A great way to start any day, at a great price. The restaurant (On Quay) also offers drinks through the night, with dinner options nightly and room service on weeknights. We also recommend the French/Vietnamese fusion dining of Libertines, just a short walk to the Petrie Terrace Barracks, in which a Palace Cinemas is also contained.
Location-wise, the hotel is walking distance from the magnificent GOMA, Art Gallery, State Library and Queensland Museum. If you’re looking to shop, Queen Street is just as close, and for those looking to travel further, it’s not far to Roma Street station which can get you just about anywhere you need to.
It doesn’t get much more convenient than this.
While in Brisbane we headed over to the picturesque Moreton Island Tangalooma Resort for a day trip – an easy 75 minutes Ferry ride from the city. The Holt Street Wharf – from where the Tangalooma Ferry departs – is an easy 15 minute drive away and one of many examples of the fantastic experiences Queensland – and Brisbane in particular – have to offer.
