Stayed at this hotel in September 2013 for work for 8 days. Given that I have lived in Brisbane, and have over the years heard excellent reports about Rydges Southbank, I was looking forward to staying at the hotel. Although the location was perfect and next door to the convention centre where we had our round of negotiations, rooms were rather a let down. They were clean and room service was good. However, corridors and the rooms looked warn out and tired. You could feel some of the springs in the mattress and linen was your standard el-cheapo hostel style. Pillows had clumps of stuffing and after a while, that became uncomfortable to lie on. I asked for new pillows but got similar pillows so I didn't bother using them. I got city views overlooking beautiful Southbank and the Ferris Wheel, and looking at Brisbane's stunning skyline. Overall, a nice and pleasant stay. Bacchus restaurant was a first class dining experience - loved the free wine tasting event. Pool side bar was a nice spot to relax after a rough day.
