What a joy to visit the Calile Hotel. The staff were wonderful and the restaurants and cafes top notch. Food was exceptional. Within walking distance to many other venues. You must visit the Sushi experience,which cost 65 dollars each and it was brilliant. We had a variety of dishes and we watched chefs prepare meals it was wonderful. We will definetly visit again.

How to ruin an experience - go and meet the calile. ***********UPDATE - The Hotel recognized the situation and we had a good conversation on the topic - Therefore from my end - case closed!********** The hotel is nice, location is great, the rooms are nicely done. If that was everything to mention, then it would be fantastic, unfortunately, the hotel is everything else then up to standard when it comes to service. As a hotel guest paying a rate in excess of AU$700 per night, one would expect to be treated at least to that standard. In contrast I got pushed around as the hotel is trying to increase revenue from F & B, meaning that a booking for lunch for hotel guest was restricted to two hours without mentioning that at the booking. This is exceptionally rude and not acceptable, as well as for breakfast. Showing up at nine on Sunday there’s plenty of room and only four hotel rooms have breakfast bookings. Instead of giving the guest the possibility to enjoy breakfast I got pushed out after 45 minutes, hearing a lot of blah blah about last-minute bookings that were excepted (interesting excuse honestly, accepting bookings, knowing that there is hotel guests at a table, trying to enjoy breakfast and forgetting about the rudeness of the previous day), and hearing some apologies that do not help at all. All in all I can say if you want to feel treated well and be appreciated as a guest you should not consider to stay at this hotel. If you want to stay in Fortitude Valley under a known brand, regardless of how you get treated for sure this is the right spot to go. As a last detail about service quality, I may also include a picture of a bug that when I left my hotel room for breakfast was laying there on the ground and on my return will still there even after several Hotel employees have passed by. I understand that this is a very common creature for Australia and seen in many places especially in situations when it is raining, nevertheless, not having it cleared out from employees passing by seems rather inappropriate for a hotel that claims to be top-notch and first class.

Had an amazing stay here! Everything was amazing! Comfiest bed in a hotel we have ever slept in and pool area wonderful! Only let down was for a 5 star hotel not being able to get coeliac (gluten free) chips at the pool. 😞 but we just had healthier option of watermelon 🍉 😋

We had a networking event at the Callile and Kenny absolutely had us covered. He should get promoted because he was so lovely, attentive and delivered on our needs in a timely way. If I came here again, I would be HONOURED to be served by Kenny. Go Kenny

The hotel was nice and clean. Amenities and facilities were complete too. However during my stay, the door lock has issues and I had to pack and move to another room (although I got an upgrade). At night it can get really busy, the restaurants were super packed. Didn’t like how they didn’t inform about the 10% Friends of Calile discount too. Overall do I think it’s 5-star, maybe-maybe not. Didn’t feel the exclusivity.
