You can choose to stay in the thick of things in the lively city centre, or pick a hotel close to the laid-back and leafy southeast suburb of Mount Florida.

Between Crosshill and Mount Florida train stations, this large Victorian house is home to a four-star hotel, bar-restaurant and stunning beer garden edged by big trees.
