Convenience In Brisbane’s CBD
Morning Bulletin Rockhampton QLD03/07/2010
The refurbished Metro Hotel Tower Mill on Wickham Terrace – situated next door to Brisbane Private Hospital (Holy Spirit), a short walk to St Andrew’s Hospital and a wide range of medical specialists – is a popular accommodation choice for people visiting Brisbane for medical reasons or to visit loved ones in hospital.
According to general manager Graham Marks, many guests have been recommended to stay at the hotel by doctors from the local hospitals and medical practices.
“This is because of the positive feedback they have received from people who have come to Brisbane for medical treatment and have had family staying with us for extended periods.”
The distinctive cylindrical shaped hotel, a well known landmark on the inner-city Brisbane skyline, houses 80 guest rooms, all with their own private balconies that take in panoramic views extending across Brisbane. The hotel offers a variety of rooms, from twin, queen bed and family rooms (accommodating up to five people), to executive suites. Limited complimentary parking is available for guests.
Guests will enjoy the convenience of staying close to the city’s CBD and main attractions, including Queen Street Mall, Treasury Casino, Southbank Parklands, the botanical gardens and art galleries.
The hotel offers special rates for those attending hospitals and medical specialists in the area. Metro Hotel Tower Mill on Wickham Terrace is located close to the city’s transport options, just 500 metres from Central Railway Station and nearby bus stations. This makes a day trip to the Sunshine Coast’s Australia Zoo and the Gold Coast, with its theme park attractions including Movie World, SeaWorld and DreamWorld, only a 45 minute train ride away. Coachtrans offers a bus service from the airport to the hotel and back for just $12 each way.
The hotel’s licensed restaurant and bar has also undergone a transformation with a totally new rebuild and refurbishment on the ground floor. The Mill Hotel Bar and Restaurant provides a perfect setting for guests to enjoy a leisurely meal or drink after a day’s sightseeing or business meetings, with a new outdoor dining area ideal for the sunny Brisbane weather.
