Location is fantastic and overall the hotel is quite good, but the rooms and bathrooms are a bit old; the TV control doesn't work properly and the fixtures in the bathroom are old but clean. Location is close to convention centre and just 10-15mins walk to the river, museums area and shopping district. Lots of restaurants nearby, and only 30mins... More

Such a good location for the restaurants on South Bank. We left our car with Valet parking which was courteous and fast. The room overlooked the convention centre and was quiet and well appointed. Staff were friendly and efficient. An easy walk to the river cat for transport.

OK, so this is not a 5 star hotel, but it isn't budget either - I was so disappointed with it in general. My son and I were in town for the weekend, attending an event at the Convention Centre next door, which can be accessed directly from the hotel - no-one bothered to mention this to us, so we... More

We opted to stay here due to its location in the Brisbane CBD. The hotel is surrounded by shops, restaurants, tourist attractions like the Treasury Casino, the ferris wheel, and is located on South Bank. South Bank Train Station is within walking distance from the hotel and taxi cabs regularly come and go from the main entrance. The CBD itself... More

Dear Railmotor, Thank you for providing us with feedback from your stay. The hotel occupies a fantastic location in the Brisbane CBD area, close to attractions as you rightly point out. Not only is our hotel close to many excellent dining outlets, our in-house restaurants, Bacchus and the CBD Cafe, allow for an immersive and delicious dining experience. We look... More

Ideal if you're attending live theater events. Age of facility is starting to let it down but is not reflected in the price. Quality of workmanship on maintenance not great (check the overpainted speakers in the CBD).

We had a lovely stay at Rydges in a Riverview Suite and loved the evening views over Brisbane River. Staff were very helpful and courteous and readily helped with some of our special requests. Its a 2 minute walk to the attractions and dining choices at South Bank Parklands and great if you're attending an event at the Convention Centre.... More

I recently stayed here for a wedding at Kangaroo Pointe with a reception at The Rydges --- rooms were great, the reception was beautiful and the bride also agreed that she was extremely happy with the entire event and having it at Rydges. Way to go!

I thought the Rydges brand was a good one. I was surprised how outdated this hotel was being next to the Convention Centre and how much it costs to stay a night here. Admittedly I opted for a twin room with river front view and a balcony but found the room to be only just clean. I wont go into... More

We chose Rydges as we were staying with our teenage sons to see Mythbusters show at the Convention Centre.The position is absolutely no. 1, as you can access the convention centre through a stairwell which takes you into a large courtyard attached to the convention centre. As our boys are getting older a standard hotel room is often too small... More
