Although this place has a lot going for it, the rooms are tired. It does have great position if are going to South bank, free WiFi and the breakfast area has been refurbishment. Compehensive room service menu is a bonus. The parking is valet only.

Love love love Rydges South Bank. I stay here for QPAC shows, the night before O/S travel and for business. The king suite is a winner with the family, and just short walk to south bank restaurants and Brisbane CBD shops.

Centrally located at South Bank it is very convenient to the city and shows at the Performing Arts Centre. Try for a room with river views which is brilliant at night with the city lights reflecting off the water.
