We originally booked an apartment with the Rydges. We were horrified at the state of the apartment. There were stains on bed covers, the rooms had not been well looked after and was generally in an bad state of repair. We arranged to move to a room in the Rydges Southbank hotel, the staff were helpful and accommodating. The room... More

I find that after a long day od meetings etc, returning to Rydges in Townsville allows me to unwind and relax before heading out again the next day. The room is comfortable, if a little old (but I like that) - quiet and clean.

Not a bad experience. The hotel is clean and presentable. The room is basically but beautifully presented. Overlooking the pool and marina in our room. The only problem is that the air con is a little noisy. Many restaurants around the area. Pleasant stay!

Well appointed rooms, spacious, clean with comfortable bedding. small bathroom, but you can live with that! Friendly staff, free off street parking. Restaurants abound in Palmer Street so you have it all! Here on business, consider staying here.

Just returned from a long Easter weekend at the Rydges. We were given an end room with a little more space for a family of 4. The room itself had been nicely renovated. The bathroom was a bit dated but clean. The hotel had undercover parking and a decent pool and spa area, though the pool was more for better... More

This hotel is in a great location for visiting Townsville and is close to many restaurants from pub meal options to French style restaurants. Also is only a short walk into the town centre where there is a variety of shops. The hotel has an onsite restaurant and the buffet breakfast was quite good. The hotel could do with an... More

Was extremely impressed with the restaurant from the moment we walked in to the moment we left. It has a nice ambience, you can have a conversation without raising your voice, just lovely. Staff were both very good, service was great without them being in your face, your drinks were attended to & water topped up. Chef was to be... More
