Some of the friendliest staff I have ever encountered in a hotel, amazing breakfast buffet - absolutely delicious! Really convenient location, just across the footbridge to the city, right on South bank.

This hotel is in a fabulous location - right down by the river, and at the end of the cultural precinct. The apartment was small but comfortable, clean but dated. The staff were friendly and helpful and brekkies reasonably priced but nothing special. This hotel totally did the job for me as I was there for a conference but if... More

On the plus side, the hotel is in a great location & fairly cheap for Brisbane location. The Queensland Museum is just down the road & a short walk over the bridge & you are in the CBD. Having a washing machine & dryer in the room was also a bonus. Undercover, secure parking was included in the room price.... More

Last week I stayed at the Riverside Hotel South Bank and would say you get what you pay for in other words average. The staff at reception were friendly and went out of their way to get the room ready for me as I arrived well earlier than the 2 pm allowed check-in time. As for the room itself I... More

we picked this hotel as it is in walking distance to QPAC , very close to Southbank( for our morning walk after we've been to the show the night before) We usually travel to the Goldcoast then and it is very easy to get out of Brisbane from there. We had breakfast at the hotel, which was really good for... More

A great place to stay for acceess to Southbank, GOMA, QPAC and the Convention and Exhibition Centre. Very clean and comfortable rooms with all mod cons and very friendly staff, particularly Duty manager Luiz who goes out of his way to ensure you have a memorable stay. A nice restaurant and quiet little bar to enjoy your pre-dinner drinks. Also... More

Booking and reservations Easy to book and follow up email just prior to booking was appreciated. I notice that after we checked in that we could have used facebook to both check in and secure a further discount. Didn't see that earlier so was not aware of option Front desk Considering only the one person on, he was very professional... More

All my breakfast and dinner meals were delicious. My room was perfect for me. To Riverside Hotel management and your valuable staff, keep up the good work and thank you. Riverside Hotel is a... More

Nice room...friendly staff...but the quality of the food in the restaurant leaves a lot to be desired...was served mouldy fruit as part of my desert...bit of a downside on an otherwise nice stay Would stay here again
