Great location and the service and food was fine however rooms and other amenities are very tired and being an old building there seems to be very little in the form of noise suppression. The carpets in the hallways are so thin that every footstep, every door open and close and every conversation echoes throughout. The housekeeping staff start banging... More

We have stayed at Rydges Sth Bank on a number of occasions. The location is great, but the property is a little tired. The entrance/lobby is not clean with soiled furniture and the room maintenance is poor. The staff are great and the food is good, just need to update the property

Took 3 deliveries of room service to get order right after giving away part of the meal to another room. Food was disgusting & expensive. I was part of a Group booking & there was confusion on check in by staff & on check out they lost the charges authority & expected everyone to pay. Also opted to do the... More

We left refreshed after a sleep and a quiet night out at the local restaurants. Will certainly return again for the convenience, location and great... More

Rydges is in a great location near South Bank. Ask for a quiet room if you are staying on a Saturday or Sunday night as the bar can be noisy. Lovely restaurant called Bacchus on site. Staff all very professional and friendly. Would definitely stay again.

The location was perfect for the conference I was attending. The room was comfortable and the bed was very good. The views from the balcony was great. Close to Southbank Parklands with many eating options.

I've stayed here many times - always great location and good value for money. Great room service - timely and tasty. The bar/restaurant downstairs is great and well priced. Bacchaus bar is superb for a drink.

I absolutely love the full length curtains that go full length of the wall for the mountain/city view rooms. Looking over the back court yards of the entertainment centre is quite charming. Sitting by the pool on the deck is absolutely exquisite and don't even get me started on the buffet breakfast it is hands down stunning,such a huge range... More
