I have recently stayed in a number of hotels in Brisbane, and I can happily say this was the best stay I have experienced. They had sent me an email to check in advance, which I didn't do. On arrival my room was ready and I was upgraded to room with a view over the river. The staff were very... More

We stayed in July 2014 for my husband's birthday, and chose Rydges due to it's proximity to the Performing Arts Centre (we were seeing a show), Southbank for a casual stroll, and the enormous range of restaurants and cafes nearby. We indulged in the King Deluxe room, and it really does live up to it's name! This is a suite,... More

Another stay at Rydges Southbank and as usual everything was good. Comfortable bed, clean room and lovely view, helpful staff. The only niggle was that the bathroom was looking very tired and could certainly do with an upgrade. Just love how handy this hotel is to the Lyric Theatre, the CBD etc.

We stayed here for a week and found the location to be perfect for us! Just a walk across the bridge to the city centre but fabulous restaurants and cafes a few minutes walk away! Our room was fairly basic but very clean and neat and great sunblock curtains for those early Brissy morns!!

A six night stay while on business found me choosing Rydges because of the convenience of the nearby restaurants, taxi ranks, comfortable room, friendly staff and thoughtful service. I have recommended Rydges to friends and family for business and pleasure.

A warm welcome received as usual. I was given a choice of floor levels - a new experience! Always ready for that free Welcome Drink! I regularly breakfast at the CBD Bar - I've never been disappointed with the food or the service.

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
