Metro Hotel Tower Mill on Wickham Terrace - Stylish accommodation and dining in the heart of Brisbane
The city of Brisbane offers great shopping, fantastic live entertainment and events, and many delicious opportunities to wine and dine. Following the recent floods, Brisbane is now well and truly back in business and alive with activity. All streets are open and domestic and international airports fully operational.
The refurbished Metro Hotel Tower Mill on Wickham Terrace, which was not affected by the floods, is a well-known landmark in the centre of Brisbane, offering leisure and business visitors stylish and affordable accommodation and dining.
The distinctive cylindrically shaped hotel houses 80 guest rooms, all with their own private balconies (excluding budget rooms) 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 four people), to executive suites. Limited complimentary parking is available for guests.
Guests will enjoy the convenience of staying in close proximity to the city’s CBD and main attractions, including Queen Street Mall, Treasury Casino, Southbank Parklands, the Botanical Gardens, art galleries and museums.
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 return for just $14 each way.
For business visitors, the hotel is situated within a 10 minute walk of Brisbane’s major conference venues, including the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
