Have stayed at this hotel five times over the last four years and have always been delighted with the accommodation. The staff at reception and indeed all staff are friendly, courteous and helpful. Location is great for access to the theatre, Southbank, and Brisbane City all are in easy walking distance. Will certainly stay here again. Thank You Riverside Hotel.

Basically a 3 star hotel. Quite well located on the edge of the city, about a 20 min walk into the CBD. This is I think two blocks of apartments owned by investors and operated as a hotel by a management team. Staff did their job OK but nothing special, rooms were clean, decor is just above basic. The rooms... More

Stayed at Riverside, room was very clean, well furnished and very comfortable and extremely good value for money in a nice hotel close to everything that Brisbane has to offer, within easy walking distance.

Excellent location. Walking distance to QPAC, Mall, Museum, galleries, river. Easy walk from South Brisbane railway station. Would definitely stay there again if coming south to see a show. Compact room. Clean. Great value.

Pleasant stay in a clean comfortable hotel room. If you are expecting a room overlooking the river in a trendy part of town then you are going to be disappointed. Bathroom was incredibly small sparking comparisons with Harry Potters room under the staircase. Handy to Southbank - walking distance to trains/city etc. Good economical base for Brisbane stay.

Yummy food.. Lovely service.. Affordable.. Great parking great location.. Room was warm and cosy.. Although we had a room suitable for wheelchair access so the shower was open plan and water did go all over the floor and needed bench space in the bathroom for toiletries..

Stayed overnight at Riverside because we were meeting people at Southbank. Great location to Southbank. If you have a car parking is free for guests. Room wasn't new decor but everything was clean. Great value for money, and if you don't mind walking a little it's not too far from the CBD.

We are a mature couple and stay in this hotel when visiting Brisbane it is in South Bank and just a short walk to the Convention Centre, QPac Theatre the Museum and Arts Centre, Restaurants and the lovely South Bank gardens. You can also take the ferry to various stops around the riverside - about 10 mins walk. It is... More
