Our stay at rydges south bank was great overall however, there was not enough towels in the room for the amount of people booked (there were 4 towels and 5 people booked to stay) and the mould inside the kettle in the room.

First time staying in this hotel. Check in and checkout were quick and seamless, and as a very frequent traveller this is important. Room was spotless, and kept so by housekeeping. Stayed 4 nights including a Friday/Saturday. Service was always quick and efficient (which is not always a feature of Australian hotels as there are generally fewer staff than Asia).... More

After along week at work, an overnight stay at Southbank to walk the night markets and have dinner with the family was desperately needed The Rydges Concierge service was fantastic which made up for a few issues at reception with our booking and extended to the making of paper aeroplanes with our two young boys!

This very nice hotel is fine all around. It is near the river and all the Brisbane attractions are within easy walking distance. The ordinary rooms on the South Side of the Hotel overlook a pretty uninteresting cityscape, while the larger and ordinary rooms on the Northside look toward the river. A very solid 3.5 or 4 star hotel. Free... More

Terrific location and all amenities are right on the money.Perhaps the rooms are a trifle smaller than you hope for the price but the location in the heart of the fabulous Brisbane South Bank makes up for that.The staff and their service was first class and I would happily stay there again.

It's located in the middle of everything, such as the river, restaurants, museums, science centre, Ferris wheel, and everything is within walking distance. Room has comfortable beds. On my second night, the next room was very noisy and the staff got to it immediately. Service was great. I'll definitely come back.

The hotel was perfectly located to attend a show at QPAC, which was the purpose of our trip to Brisbane. The room was clean, but the furnishings were tired and worn and the bathroom was rundown. The food at the hotel restaurant and the cafe was solid, but not spectacular. The service at the hotel bar was very poor -... More
