We stayed one night at Rydges as we were going to see The King and I. We arrived at 2pm , staff were courteous and friendly, but nothing standout. We had booked and payed for our room online, so check in was a breeze. Our room was on the 10th floor with river views, worth paying the few extra dollars.... More

This was our fourth stay at Rydges (over a number of years) We stayed for one night - as my birthday celebration. We had a King Suite (it's always worth the extra cost to feel a bit indulgence we think). Reception and concierge staff, as always were very friendly, welcoming and professional. They gave us all the info we needed... More

We spent 2 nights at the Rydges Southbank. Our room was not ready when we arrived but we knew it would not be. Staff checked us in and took our ph number to ring us when ready. We never got that call. The room was lovely and comfortable but the bathroom was a huge let down. I expected it to... More

This hotel is in a great location, joins on to the Convention & Exhibition Centre, just next to the South Brisbane train station (20 mins by train from the airport) and lots of great cafe and restaurants.

I wasn't able to fly home from Brisbane due to the cyclone. I picked this hotel for convenience and location.

The standard of the room left a lot to be... More
