I cannot believe the management of this establishment has young bar stuff and duty managers letting the place go further to the pack. They don't even care about their poor patrons. Last night one patron was left in the toilet (elderly man) needing help and the duty manager walks off and disappears leaving my partner trying to help him. When...

I was looking for a quick pub meal and found this establishment. What a gem! $10 for two bangers, heaps of mash potato and well cooked veges to boot! The atmosphere in the sit down area (not the public bar) is good considering it's a hotel. Interesting surrounds and clients. I'll definitely be back ... maybe again tonight! I've given...

We enjoy a drink at the Sporties and catching. up with our mates every time we visit Brisbane. Great pub to have a meal at for lunch and dinner and to catch a Floor Show. Plus they do have Overnight Budget Rooms.

Conveniently located, but sadly a bit of noise from the surroundings both from downstairs (expected in a room over a pub) and outside the building from industry? Room fittings are reasonable. Overall impression: cheap but not especially cheerful.. But the devil is in the detail. The TV in the common room (none in rooms) seems to only receive Channel 9...

This hotel has been serving its core clientele for donkey's years and it shows it! Atmosphere was pretty good, relaxed and friendly, but they need to spend money on the facilities fast! The place is a bit grubby, old and worn out. I'd hate to see what it's like with the lights on! Refurbishment required otherwise not a bad spot!
