First of all I have to say I got a good deal which is why I was there. A King suite and free parking with a $20 bar voucher for $129. I couldn't resist it. I had a fantasy about coming back to the hotel after shopping and sight seeing and collapsing with room service and a movie. It was... More

I could not complain It's all that you'd want from a hotel if you're travelling on business It's close to the Southbank dining and arts precinct and the city, and has spacious clean rooms and friendly staff I have stayed since and would stay again

The initial impression is fine, the wow factor was the huge Gingerbread House in the entry that people where slowly taking bits from over the weekend despite the do not touch sign. We stayed Friday night through to Wednesday morning and the first 3 nights were terrible. The noise level from the pool deck was over the top even from... More

Stayed here as part of a Business trip. Location is great - close to the restaurant strip at South Bank, public transport, the Brisbane River & other facilities. My room (Queen Queen) was spacious, the kitchenette & mini bar fantastic, & the breakfast on the Podium level was outstanding! Highly recommended!

Checked in this afternoon, as a treat on our final night of holidays. Was initially impressed until we decided to take our young daughter for a swim at 5pm. Was informed on arrival to the pool deck that the pool would be closing at 550 for a private function, which in itself was disappointing being as today is 34 deg... More

Had a great time at the Rydges Sunday pool party. Good location; walking to dining and entertainment. Breakfast was nicely done, and good service. For the price, the room was quite like a dormitory, not worth the money.

We stayed here for a night as we had function to attend nearby. Stayed in queen room. Was clean, modern and appeared to be well maintained. Small fridge and also a microwave. No view from our room. Was over $300 for the night, so not great value, but was certainly clean etc.
