Limes Hotel ~ Fortitude Valley

5 Apr

Timbob (the husband) and I finally had a chance to take in the view and a movie at the Valley’s Limes HotelThe Limes’ roof top bar and cinema is a lovely spot to wind down the day. The hotel is on Constance St, just a short stroll from central station and the Brunswick Mall. 

I was greeted by the hotel lobby receptionist in a friendly professional manner and directed to take the lift to the roof top bar where I was happily welcomed by the bar tender. Frankly the service at this place is fantastic! Social, humorous, and professional all at the same time. Our bartender for the night went out of his way to show off a couple of the rums that Limes had been collecting from around the place. Check out the rum photographed below – it’s a sword shaped bottle from Nepal! Timbob was very impressed and it sampled well too.

          

We ordered the meat themed Mix Platter to accompany our drinks before heading to the viewing lounge.  The duck spring rolls were nice, but underwhelming (deep frying has a tendency to do that sometimes though), the chorizo was well spiced and went fantastically with the organic grilled ciabatta & smoked red peppers, and the parma ham was generous.

 The cinema seating was sufficient and comfortable, but the screen was smallish and films seem to be run off of a DVD projection. It’s probably more like going to watch a movie at a friends place – who has an awesome roof top bar 😀

P.S. Try not to sit near the passageway between the bar and the viewing lounge. Can get a little noisy at times.
