This hotel was a little pricey in the middle of winter, but in a great location, clean and friendly enough. The breakfast menu was really disappointing in that - I don't know about you - but I am totally sick of crappy over-priced standard hotel menus that are also full of not very healthy food. But the location compensates for... More

my family and I was among a few others stranded due to technical issues on a Virgin Australia flight on the way home to Auckland and missed out interconnecting flight. We were given the Rydges Hotel Southbank as an overnight stopover. From check in to check out was a breeze and all the evening and overnight staffs were wonderful to... More

This was a great 4 night stay for us, walking distance to the city, the restaurants in the south bank, train station and bus station. Room was clean and very spacious - had a twin room which was two king size beds! Very comfy and very clean - had the choice of getting your room cleaned which was good. Service... More

Within short walking distance to riverfront, main Brisbane attractions, downtown, everything you would want. Our tenth floor room had a balcony and gorgeous view of downtown lights reflected in river.

The staff at the Rydges were so accommodating and friendly. I had a really demanding work schedule and they were so flexible and helpful during a really stressful time. I absolutely recommend this hotel, they were all completely lovely - from the concierge to the reception to the fantastic girl who cleaned my room - and nothing was an issue... More

The hotel is located in the South Bank area, nice part of the city with lots of restaurants, cafes and nightlife. The city downtown area is just across the river, and can be reached by boat or a short walk thru the nearby bridge (15 mins walk). The hotel is quite nice, modern style, with rooms is a pretty good... More

Speaking on the top floor overlooking the Brisbane River was a distraction! A superb evening and efficient staff. The after event drinks wind-down was spilt by being advised at 9pm that the place closed at 9.30pm even for in house guests! Ah, Queensland - so much to learn.....Clean room, spoilt by construction noise adjacent to the hotel. This noise persisted... More

Dear geraldq, Thank for your recent review in relation to your experience at Rydges South Bank Brisbane. The rooftop function area does offer superb 180 degree views of the river and city, so I can only imagine how distracting this would have been whilst giving a presentation, especially once the city lights up at night. Please accept my apologies for... More
