Really enjoyed my time here. Clean accommodation, good facilities. Pleasant staff. I would come back. Close to everything in Southbank. I would recommend Southbank any day over Brisbane - Southbank has character and life and the stroll across the bridge is great in Spring. I was there in the lead up to the G20 so there were a few inconveniences... More

Upon arrival we experienced chaos, difficult to find assistance with luggage, found our own trolley to take luggage to room. Lifts not working well, for hotel this size 3 lifts are insufficient! Especially when the hotel is very busy. No stationery in room to take notes. No newspaper of the day available to read.

I asked for a high room, I even got an email confirming that I had asked. But at the desk that didn't seem to have got through. I got level 5 staring at the back of the Conservatorium. The second day a bottle of cleaning spray was left in the room.

I've used Rydges Southbank for years for business travel for all our employees. I have to say the last few visits have me second guessing that. Room service food has been consistently delivered cold with items either forgotten or the food badly prepared (affecting the taste). For example, two trips in a row I've ordered eggs benedict. Both times they... More
