Room 719. Great view across the roof tops to the city (some noise from the extractors). Ripped curtains in both sides and the extractor is a recipe for legionnaires. When I got there the price I was quoted was increased by $40 (to $246) and only after handing over my card did I find out that the hotel facilities are... More

Perfect location for easy access to Southbank parklands and restaurants - two minute walk. The train station is 5 minutes away. Queen street mall is a short walk across the bridge or take the ferry. I've stayed here before and will be back. It is so easy to get around without driving. The staff are helpful and rooms clean and... More

In Brisbane for a show at QPac. Rydges is very close to the convention centre, QPac, Southbank parklands and more. Staff very friendly. Costs a lot to park your car, but a small price to pay for the convenient location.

From booking, through check in to departure, we found staff helpful and attentive. Our stay included breakfast and valet parking, as we were visiting the Qld Art Gallery the following morning. The car stayed in valet parking until 1 pm. Fantastic. As it was Australia Day, Rui changed our room allocated to give us a balcony view of the river... More

We recently had a 2 night stay in a Deluxe Queen room and it was wonderful. The rooms are very spacious and the bed is fantastic! The bathroom is a little small but very clean. The views were great and we had a generous size balcony with 2 chairs. I was a bit surprised that we didn't have an outdoor... More

We had a family gathering there, booked 13 rooms, and position was very central Very close to Southbank, lots for restaurants, pools and entertainment. Rooms are clean and tidy, and sizable. We had some difficulty with family on different levels, and getting between levels was difficult. The pool and pool area is lovely, and the restaurant for breakfast is excellent.

The staff in every area of this accommodation are extremely friendly and helpful. The reception area and entrance are not that appealing, however the pool bar and restaurant are very inviting and relaxing for a drink or a meal. Although we did not get to eat there as we were only staying overnight and had other plans. The rooms were... More

I love it when a business hires fantastic staff. Everyone we dealt with, from the valet to the cleaner, were lovely. The room was great, with a fantastic view of the river and wheel.
