we stayed here for two nights. lovely and helpful staff. Close to many restaurants. walk across the bridge and you're in Queen st....ask for the highest floor possible to not only get the view but also to get away from the noise.

If you want to stay at southbank this is the place to stay. Right in the heart of all the action, walking fist to casino QPAC convention centre and more restaurants than you could imagine. But with that you will have to accept the constant noise from traffic and the open air bar on podium level as well as function... More

The staff were really nice. 24hr roomservice was great getting back at midnight. Great location. Only thing is that some minor repairs may be needed to the elevators and carpet. But overall fantastic.

Just completed a stay at Rydges South Bank Brisbane. The hotel is in a fabulous location with lots of restaurants etc close by. The performing arts centre and the conservatorium is over the road so it's a great place to stay if your seeing theatre at QPAC. The bar and restaurant Baachus is beautiful . Have stayed a few times... More

I stay here semi-regularly for work and it's location on the Southbank is great with plenty of restaurants, bars and attractions within walking distance. Neat rooms and a nice Bar (CBD) downstairs. However, the bar does close too early as during my recent stay plenty of foot-traffic that came in around 10pm on a weeknight were turned away. Maybe a... More

I really liked this hotel. My room was more like an apartment. Huge balcony with a view of the city's wheel, dining table and living room, plus a glass desk with a leather chair. Can't complaint at all (except maybe for the that'd linger after flushing, but didn't bother me enough to even report it). I had the Do Not... More

Stayed here for work as I had to attend a expo at the convention centre, the hotel is located on a trendy side of Brisbane, as you are only walking distance to restaurants, cafes and even local markets. There are a couple of downsides to the hotel, the aircon was turning on and off all night which sounded like someone... More

Stayed for 3 nights to attend conference right next door. I booked the standard queen room but was upgraded to Deluxe Twins with River View, which according to the website should have 2 queen beds but mine had 2 double beds. Not complaining here since it was a free upgrade (Thanks Rydges!). The hotel has direct access to BCEC (Plaza... More

A colleague made the booking for me. Didn't realised that the hotel is next to the train tracks. First night was hard. Kept waking up due to the noise. The next morning I asked to be moved to another room (on the other side of the building). Happy to pay the extras if need be. I asked twice, the reception... More

Stayed on business for a conference. Took 45 minutes driving around the block looking for hotel carpark, then realised its under construction and had to pay additional valet at hotel to park. No other option close by. Room was good, clean and of modern standard. Best thing was snakes in minibar. Worst thing was paying $39 for bacon and eggs... More

Dear NeverBloodyHome, Thank you for the feedback about your stay with us. Please accept my apologies for the diffuclty you had arriving at the hotel. We have had to undergo some emergency repairs to our driveway which has made the logistics of catering for vehicles difficult for a short period of time.
