What a great place to stay for a view of Brisbane Skyline especially during the Colour Me Brisbane light show. The service was AAA in all departments. Recommend you pick a upper floor for the city sights, and so close to South Bank facilities plus ferry services

My husband and I stayed at the Rydges for our 15th wedding anniversary. We had advised the booking staff of this prior to our arrival and were kindly given a few perks, which was very much appreciated. The staff were always helpful and friendly. The hotel is right in the heart of South Bank, close to great coffee, restaurants, cinemas,... More

Wonderful place to stay. Right next door to the convention centre. An abundance of restaurants of all types in walking distance. Fabulous views of Brisbane, Southbank& the river. Great room service food. Apart from a lack of sunbathing spots near the pool, it was perfect,from the valet service to the check out. Would highly recommend this place to anyone.

Another stay at this great venue. Asked for a quiet room, excelled at being quiet. Had great meals and drinks at cbd cafe. My room was very good and facilities to standard. I really enjoy the location and the walks along the river front.

This hotel was booked through my employer due to being close to a conference venue. While very convenient for my purposes I thought for the cost it was average. Check-in was very busy even in the late afternoon. The room was reasonable with a full size tub, which I took advantage of, however as the room faced Grey Street it... More

From the moment we arrive the staff made us feel really welcome. We were on the 11th floor and the view back over the river and of the CBD was great. The place is very central to everything you need. Food, the theatre and even the CBD for the shops. I had a great stay.

We had a suite overlooking half the river and the convention centre/trains. It had all of the mod cons, seperate bathroom with a large king bed, television and safe. The kitchen/lounge area was spcaious and comfortable with fridge, microwave, television, wifi and balcony. It was always neat and clean. The nights quiet apart from the trains slowly moving away from... More

The staff were unhelpful and not at all friendly. The lifts did not work for a number of hours, yet they didn't use the service lift, nor allow us to use stairs. We were actually stuck in a lift for approximately 15 minutes and the service phone was unanswered as was the hotel reception. We booked a suite, and when... More
