I was attending a conference at Brisbane Convention and Entertainment Centre and wanted an apartment close by. The Riverside Hotel is just past the Queensland Museum - an easy 10 minute walk straight down Grey Street with pedestrian access to Grey Street directly from the Hotel. If you are heading to the city centre, it is just a few minutes... More

We were going to a show at the Qpac so wanted accommodation within walking distance. Great Location. The hotel is a little run down, but the staff are amazing. Alisha at reception took care of all our needs and Carissa at the restaurant where we had lunch was very efficient with a great sense of humour. Food in the restaurant... More

If you are conscious of cost, however, you wish to stay on South Bank, it is hard to beat what the Riverside offers. For starters it is probably, if you book in advance, at least $100 a night cheaper than other choices on South Bank and it is only about a ten minute walk to the performing arts precinct and...

Always very good to stay at Riverview when attending theatre functions in the South Brisbane area. Also convenient for business activities in CBD. Friendly staff and no problems have been experienced. Have stayed many times over recent years whenever it has been necessary to travel to the city.

I stayed for 4 nights and it was very basic. Some staff were lovely but others were not very organised. Only about 15min walk to the city over the bridge which was great but It needs a bit of a make over! Rooms were basic but old. Food was average but we only ate breakfast there so not sure what...

This place is all about convenience and simplicity. The staff on duty was very helpful, despite our late check in. The facilities available in the property is just adequate to accommodate those who want to drop their bags and venture out. It is definitely not that cosy if one is expecting to laze in the room.

We have just spent 2 nights in what was promised to be a fully wheelchair accessible room. We were extremely happy with the room. It was not only fully accissable but really easy to get in and out of the building. The staff were amazing and the food to die for. We not only would thoroughly recommended it but would... More

This is the first time I have stayed here and would stay here again. I found the staff very friendly and this place is a great location. It is close to the city and lyric theatre approx 10 or 15 minute walk. The price was awesome and FREE PARKING is hard to find when staying in the city. The room... More

I stayed there over the weekend and was checked in early by the lady ( Deanne) on front desk. From the minute we walked through the doors we were welcomed with a warm smile and a friendly attitude. Nothing was too much trouble for the reception staff. Rooms were neat and tidy and all that we needed. Hotel is extremely... More

Simple and clean hotel room, value for money. Good location to South Bank and walking distance to city. Friendly hotel staff. Small toilet though. Due to the heavy rain on 1 May, drainage over flow in car park.
