We recently stayed at this hotel for the 2011 Brisbane Festival Sunsuper Riverfire weekend. I have to say that this hotel has the best location, right on South Bank and within walking distance to everything!
We were very happy with our stay here and the staff are very helpful and polite.
I do have to confirm as other guest to Rydges have found – this hotel could do with renovating its rooms. Yes the bathroom fills up with steam – most likely that the exhaust vent / return air ducts in the bathroom look like they have never been cleaned - there is so much dust clogging up the vent there is no way any air will get through them!
Also don’t try and have the room A/C on and use the hair drier – it blows the fuse for the room. Pulling the key in and out of the switch fixes the fuse but the room A/C still doesn’t work very well and often turns off by itself.
The restaurant food was good however not much variety on the breakfast buffet menu, the toaster doesn’t brown the bread even when set on dark. The carpet is so old, in sections it is stuck down with tape and does anyone know what the chief was cooking that is now splattered on the ceiling over the buffet?
As confirmed by other guests, I also attempted to get Qantas Frequent Flier points for my stay and was told that the rate I was staying on doesn’t qualify !
All that being said I would stay here again.
