We stayed one night (Sun 25 Jan) as we were going to see two shows at QPAC. Googled hotel for proximity to South Bank. Room rate was very reasonable and it was a long weekend. As a side comment - We had great difficulty actually finding the hotel as we don't know Brisbane at all and ended up over the... More

Great Location, nice place, close to the museums and South Bank. The room is ok for 2. Good front desk service. The swiming pool is such like a jacuzzi bath but its ok. The restaurant is good with many options to breakfast, lunch and dinner. I enjoyed staying in Brisbane.

I think the best of this hotel is its location right in Brisbane's south bank which happens to be my favourite place in Brisbane. There are heaps of restaurants around, movie theatre, museums, etc. It is also very close to the CBD. The bedrooms are just okay, there's nothing outstanding about it. The bed is not very comfortable and my... More

We have used this motel on numerous occasions, most recently for NYE and to see Lion King. No it is not an upmarket motel ... however you will find it very hard to find accommodation at this price within walking distance of Southbank and the city PLUS free undercover parking. The staff are always friendly and helpful and it is... More

An upmarket 5 star hotel this place is not but if you are looking for A good budget hotel close to the city, the theatres or Southbank then this hotel will meet your needs. Situated on the very edge of the city and Southbank you are within a 10 or 15 minute walk of each and a 5 minute walk... More

This was our fourth stay at the Riverside. We come to Brisbane for footy at Suncorp, galleries, good food and catching up with friends and family. The Riverside is perfectly located for all of this. The staff are great and the price is excellent. We will be back.

We have stayed at the Riverside countless times over the years - and just back from another weekend and our usual stay at this Hotel, we stand by our usual good review of it. Crisp white sheets, soft white towels, a comfortable bed and a good buffet breakfast in the morning. It is not fancy but it is clean, staff... More

Did a stopover at Riverside for a show at QPAC. Looked at all options in Southbank and found this to be best all round choice for $'s spent. Included parking and breakfast. Check In/Out was smooth and staff were friendly and efficient. Had a one bedroom apartment which was roomy with separate dining/living to bedroom. Was clean and had all... More

My wife and friends booked accomodation at Riverside so that they could go to the Theater at South Bank. We drove 5 hrs from out of town and only just made it on time so I dropped them off at the theater and then went to the Riverside to check in. The official lady at the reception told me quite...
