Million dollar makeover for TFE Hotels’ Brisbane favourite

The 96-room Adina Apartment Hotel Brisbane Anzac Square has thrown open its doors on a million-dollar-makeover, which has transformed the inner-city heritage gem into a sophisticated spot for CBD stays.

TFE Hotels’ classic apartment-style hotel offers both heritage architecture and contemporary design, with dove greys and calming whites dominating the new in-room colour scheme. Each of the 96 spacious studios, one or two bedroom apartments are equipped with all the amenities and features to
make you feel at home while you’re away. They include full-sized refrigerators, laundries and a separate living space, and boast a new kitchen fit out, furniture and fixtures, and flooring.

Anzac Square and the adjoining building, including the Adina, constitute the most important Queensland example of the Anzac memorial movement. Inside, classic white wainscoting panelled headboards and cabinetry dominate whilst gold accessories add a bold flash to the colour scheme.

During the original build, emphasis was placed on the use of local products (in line with the government’s “Queensland Made” policy at the time). Timbers such as silky oak, rose mahogany, maple, walnut bean were incorporated for parquetry flooring whilst public areas were lined with
marble supplied from Rockhampton. These features and original fretwork can be seen throughout the hotel today.
