So handy to everything situated a 10 minute, or so, walk across the river to the city centre and Queen St Mall, close to casino, art gallery, museum, Parklands, and Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, as well as the train station. The room was ideal with wifi, mini bar, tea and coffee making facilities. You can go 'Green' and put... More

This is new hotel so you expect the big screens and nice finishes, but the Rydges South Bank offered this and more. Everything was exactly as you would want and expect. Perfect. Compared to hotels recently visited in the UK for 5 times the price, all I would say is Rydges should show them how it is done. Thank you

So far it is the best hotel I stayed in Brisbane. If any more trips I will only consider this hotel. Very close to the train transport to go to the airport, Gold Coast and the city. It is a walking distance to the mall where they are the main shops.

Stayed one night for work. Hotel was well located for the convention centre with a connecting door between them. Pool area is lovely, rooms modern, clean and comfortable. Appreciated the free wi fi.

Stayed here for 2 nights for a business meeting. Meeting was in the executive boardroom. Lovely staff, excellent accommodation. Room was large and modern. Room service was spectacular for both breakfast and dinner. Better than some restaurants I have been to. Great location. Will definitely be back.

It's been a few years since I last stayed here, and while the location on the south bank of the river walking distance to the city and with the very nice Parklands right outside, the hotel was sorely in need of a refurbish. Refurbish they have. They have even gutted the ancient bathrooms completely and now have a swanky, if... More

Well we paid a lot for this room and was actually disappointed. We looked straight onto the railway line and the room was pretty dated and not 100 % clean and total chaos I the parking lot !

While the customer service was great, the fact we paid hundreds of dollars for a room with a "view" and was given a stare at a brick wall was extremely disappointing. We were put on the first floor overlooking the cafe / bar downstairs; this meant the noise from drunkards outside freely came into the room. Our room was a... More
