Hello, fabulous!
Last week I had my first ever staycation here in Brisbane for my birthday! I packed my bunny jumper  and fluffy socks and off I went to Gambaro Hotel on Caxton Street. I had heard many good things about Gambaro over time and was excited to try it out and even more excited about heading to Gambaro Seafood Restaurant for a birthday feast! Fresh seafood = LIFE.

I was put up in their Petrie King Balcony room, which included my own private balcony, a pillow menu, a beautiful king bed, a huge shower and more. Plus, I can't forget the bath robes. Bath robes are the first thing I look for when I enter a hotel room! No joke.

There's something about staycation which is super relaxing. I knew the area, what weather to expect, I could drive there in my own car and when it's as easy as packing an overnight bag and not a huge suitcase, I'm sold!  

I arrived at Gambaro in the afternoon and went straight to the balcony in my room to check out the view (pictured below). Well, that's a lie...I checked for bath robes first #guilty.
After having a little wander around the room and checking everything out, I went next door to see where I would be dining later on that night at Gambaro Seafood Restaurant
Gambaro also has their Black Hide Steakhouse across the road for convenience as well. You don't even have to walk far to get your hands on delicious food! Dreams.

Being located on Caxton Street definitely helps. The Barracks is just metres away and you're super close to Paddington and all of the action at Suncorp Stadium. If you're wanting to stay somewhere with access to just about everything, you can't look past this hotel.

After checking out what was around the hotel, I decided to go back up to my room, get in m PJ's and watch TV until dinner. I was so happy to relax and hear the rain outside. Plus, those silk pillows were everything! 7pm came around and before you know it I was devouring the most incredible seafood platter for 2 (thanks for the assistance, Mum!). To say I was full was an understatment. I think I even undid the top button on my jeans just so I could breathe - don't judge me. It's a common occurrence.
Make sure you have a look at the photo of my dinner below. You might just book yourself in to try it!

After dinner, I retired to my room and was so exhausted from all the excitement. I slept like a baby! I had a great sleep, made myself a cuppa (they stock T2 Tea in the room!), opened up the blinds and watched some TV before I jumped in the oversized shower and got ready to start my day!

Overall, my stay at Gambaro Hotel was extremely relaxing and enjoyable. I loved dinner, my room and the close proximity to everything. I would absolutely recommend staying here if you're up for some 5 star luxury! Check out my photos below - they might just tempt you.
