The Inchcolm by Ovolo, Spring Hill

BRISBANE | The Inchcolm by Ovolo is a boutique Brisbane hotel, housed in a beautifully restored, heritage listed, 1920s neo-Georgian former medical centre. The fitout and vibe leans on the building’s 1920s heritage, while also looking to the 1930s and 1940s for inspiration.

Location

The hotel is located in Brisbane’s Spring Hill neighbourhood. It’s a city fringe suburb, elevated with view across the Brisbane CBD. It’s a very convenient location, with both the CBD, and the entertainment and dining precinct of Fortitude Valley just a few minutes walk away. If you need to catch a train, Brisbane’s Central Station is a five-minute walk from the hotel.

Rooms

There are seven different types of suite available, all in keeping with the hotel’s theme, with modern touches. I stayed in the Thomson suite. It’s a gorgeous room, inspired by the glamourous world of the silver-screen. Custom wood finishes are accented by dark green tones, with artwork dotted around the room.

There’s a comfortable four-poster King bed, two couches, coffee table, fully stocked mini bar, wardrobe, two large flat screen TVs with Apple TV, ensuite with walk-in shower and a free-standing bath, air conditioning, free Wi-Fi, a vinyl player with a selection of records, and a free round of martinis at the bar during daily ‘Martini Hour’.

Amenities

Guests have access to the Incholm’s free self-service laundry, free WiFi throughout the hotel, and the free candy station at the lobby bar. While there is no pool or gym on site, guests have access to the pools at selected neighbouring hotels, and gyms.

The hotel is pet friendly, and there’s flexible check in and check out on request. If you have a car, the hotel offers valet parking for $60.00 per night, and self-parking for $35.00 per night.

Eat & Drink

The Incholm’s restaurant, Salon de Co, is modelled on the salons of Paris. It’s beautifully designed with parquet floors, elegant chairs, statement art and black window frames. It’s a broadly European menu with Asian flourishes.

At breakfast it’s a simple menu of things like house-made muesli, fruit and yoghurt, with à la carte options like eggs Benedict made to order.

For drinks, it’s the elegant space that you pass through when you first enter the hotel. Inspired by the likes of Hemmingway, with accents from the Twenties, Thirties and Forties throughout. There’s classic cocktails and creative concoctions, along with wine, beer, and bar snacks.

Room service is available around the clock.

The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
