This was a gift from our daughter and it was an overnight stay with buffet breakfast included and a bottle of bubbly on arrival. We have stayed here before but I noticed a significant improvement in amenities and service. Our room was on the 6th floor with a private balcony and good views over the river and across to the...

Excellent room & we were upgraded to a balcony with river views. Unfortunately at 5pm we decided to have our showers & the water was cold. The CBD cafe had skeleton staff & waiting times approx 15 - 20 minutes for Food & Drinks order. I informed the young girl serving that I would offer feedback as I observed the...

We always choose to stay at Rydges Southbank when staying in Brisbane as my son is confined to a motorised wheelchair and the wheelchair access is excellent and the disabled accessible rooms are very spacious with plenty of room for extra equipment that we travel with such as hoist, shower commode and powered wheelchair. The bathroom is very spacious and...

Recently stayed here, and chose a Deluxe Suite River View room. It was roomy, and comfy, with a convertible sofa bed for the kids. The master had a plush king size bed, with nice linens. We had a wonderful stay. The room has two large screen TVs, each with two USB charge ports beneath them, so we could charge our...

Ours was a last minute booking but we were lucky enough to secure a room. We were going to a show at the Convention Centre so the location was superb - only two minutes walk. The first thing we were presented with at check-in was a room upgrade! Then for a few extra dollars we had valet parking for the...

Great location (especially for South Bank and the convention centre), helpful staff and modern rooms. On a previous stay I had 'a room with a view’ but as this stay was in-late/out-early I opted for a standard room. The room was just as nice but it would be remiss of me not to mention that the view out over south...

Hotel was fantastic. Exceeded expectations really in terms of service (cleanliness) and spaciousness. Beds were great, comfy and supportive. King beds aren't just two singles pushed together. Food in Bacchus and even CBD was pleasantly of great quality (we will definately be re-visiting these dining areas). Staff were extremely helpful and efficient. Location can't get better with southbank just across...

The room at Rydges Southbank was a great size and very comfortable. A little disappointed that we called housekeeping for an extra champagne glass which took an hour to get to the room.

I've not noticed this at any other hotel: I got a $10 credit against food & drink within the hotel for each day that I didn't require any housekeeping service. That's great because I don't like having people come in my room for essentially no useful service. In many hotels it's a real hassle just to try to stop them...
