My husband & I are frequent travellers & thought we'd give it a go at Rydges South Brisbane for a short Easter break this time. As the bedroom door is literally not sound proof, one can hear everything from your room from others' door knocking, conversations in the corridor or simply people walking past your room. We organised morning call... More

We stayed one night here. The rooms are quite big and ours included a kitchenette which was very handy. The bed was very comfy. The location is great, you just walk out the door to all the attractions and restaurants of South Bank. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

We stayed at Rydges Southbank for the first time over Easter and enjoyed a King Suite room during our 3 night stay. We enjoyed every moment of our time at Rydges and were particularly impressed by the facilities and the exceptional staff. The highlight was a celebration dinner we had as a family in the Bacchus Restaurant. Quite simply, the... More

Stayed for 1 night in a Queen Deluxe Room as I had a meeting early the next day on the south side of the river. The bed was very comfortable, but the room itself is small and due for renovation. The view was great, but the "walk out balcony" advertised was an exaggeration, the sliding door opened to a very... More

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
