Location wise, the Rydges could not have made my life easier. I stayed there for a conference which was held at the nearby Convention centre and I was able to walk from the hotel to everything - the conference, cafes, the river, the city and the bus stop. My room was standard, so nothing exciting, but very clean and comfortable... More

We were attending a function at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre and were booked into Rydges next door. We anticipated that this stay would be a welcome beginning to a week's holiday in Outback Queensland and the Northern Territory, and we were not disappointed. The staff were extremely professional, friendly and efficient at check-in and check-out, and valet parking... More

We were booked into the hotel as an anniversary present. It was so good we extended our stay. From the time of arrival to departure the staff are courteous, friendly, efficient and patient.

Great location draws me to this hotel...however this time I think is the last time. Breakfast was a shambles.....despite being seated quickly...things went steadily down hill. Requested coffee 3 times and after 35 minutes...received my order? And the restaurant was about 50% capacity? I don't understand why they don't have a machine that you can make your own...or alternatively some... More

Whole experience at Rydges South Bank was amazing. Even had the Bridal shower there the month before and the staff and high tea was amazing. Families of the Bride and families of the Groom arrived on the Friday before the wedding and we all stayed two nights. Staff went above and beyond to make sure our daughter and new son... More

The hotel is next to the Brisbane conference center, thus it naturally attracts visitors. The rooms are however in an unsatisfying state: Rooms need urgent refurbishment, especially the bathrooms: For my bathroom, dozens of tiles are broken, and also the bathtub has severe damages. Wifi is super-slow. The walls to the next rooms are thin, I can hear any word... More

The views from the extra large balcony were amazing. We stayed on the 10th floor with city light & river views. Great location with shops, markets and great food options avalable within walking distance. Buffet breakfast in the restaurant was one of the best I've had in the past 12 months. The guestrooms a little dated, the bathroom are straight... More
