The first thing you should know about the New Inchcolm is that owner Peter Flynn was born there. Such is the long and quirky history of this neo-Georgian edifice on Wickham Terrace, once a doctors’ residence in Brisbane’s medical district. A longtime Brisbane boutique favourite, a 2014 re-do as an MGallery property has given it a new lease on life.
The building now packs a darkly romantic vibe, its various room types sharing a taste for rich oak, mirror tiles, angular geometry, chrome and textured fabrics. With iPads and maxi bars throughout, even the standard suites are much more thoughtfully appointed than most in their category.
Time Out tip: Ask for a swanky Inchcolm Loft with its top floor views towards Fortitude Valley. They’re nice and spacious for two and big enough to kick on in, if you want to bring people back after a night out.
