WIN An Ultimate Girls Getaway Package From voco Hotel

Families Magazine – Editor,  Janine and her sister stayed as guests for one night at voco Brisbane City Centre (and IHG hotel) in June 2024 to experience their ‘Ultimate Girls Package’. As always, the views in this review are our own and are an honest reflection of our stay.

One of the wonderful perks of my job is to check out some of the excellent family friendly activities and venues around our beautiful city. And sometimes I get to go to hotels and enjoy a mini break away from my family. And that, my friends is a wonderful gift! Over the weekend my sister and I enjoyed a night at voco Brisbane City Centre. With large rooms, an onsite restaurant serving breakfast and dinner as well as in-room dining, I need to share our experience of this Brisbane hotel and tell you about how you can win a stay there too!

Want to have a mini-break away from the kids? Here is what you need to know!

Where is voco Brisbane City Centre?

Located at North Quay, the hotel is directly across the Brisbane River from the Queensland Museum, GOMA and the State Library. From our window we could also see QPAC and the Brisbane Wheel.

You are literally in the city centre

What is the hotel like?

In addition to its perfect location, the hotel is beautifully appointed to make your stay exceptionally comfortable.


Even though the hotel is located on the busy North Quay, there is a driveway that you can pull into and park before you enter the reception. The staff were welcoming and efficient. After we told them our names and they saw we had booked the Ultimate Girls Getaway package, they showered us with the list of inclusions. More about that later!


There are a few different rooms to choose from standard rooms to premium rooms to 1 bedroom suites. Which ever room you choose, trust me when I say… book the room with the river view!

Dining options

Y’all know how much I love my food (and if you don’t know, check out our buffet breakfasts in Brisbane article) and I am happy to report that Zuma Restaurant didn’t disappoint! Check out my buffet walk-through video below:

Swimming pool

Pool at voco hotel Brisbane

Seeing as we stayed in June, it was too cold for us to swim on this visit. But look – it’s gorgeous! Perhaps I will have to go back and try it in the warmer weather!


Full disclosure: We only popped in here to take the photo – there were far too many cocktails to drink this weekend! 😉

So… I know what you are really here for… to find out more about the Ultimate Girls Getaway package. #amiright?
