Overnight stay at Rydges South Bank with wife and two children in a King Suite. Obtained a good rate from the Rydges web site through their free Priority Guest Membership.
The King Suite was smaller than the Queen Suite I had stayed in on previous stay but was still comfortable. Room had a partial view of river from balcony blocked by the Queensland Conservatorium and other buildings. The airconditioners for the Conservatorium are directly opposite the hotel and we found them to be vey noisy when we sat on the balcony or left the balcony doors open. There were only two chairs provided on the balcony so children sat on the floor.
The room was clean but a few scuffs on furniture and walls impacted on overall aesthetics. The king bed (as opposed to singles pushed together as seems prevalent in some other hotels in Brisbane) was very comfortable. However, the children were not overly impressed with the sofa bed - more than one night might have been to much for 2 children sharing the sofa bed.
Breakfast, temporarily being served on the 12th floor as they are renovating the ground floor restaurant, was ok - usual fare - nothing special.
Location of the hotel is great for tourists wanting to visit South Bank but there is a little walk into the city.
