Access to Southbank just across the road makes this a perfect location for a Brisbane visit. The prices are VERY variable and tend to skyrocket when a conference is in town. Be aware of this when booking. Facilities are OK and restaurant offering basic but not really required with all that is on offer at Southbank. A very clean and... More

I recently stayed on a business trip and the hotel was fantastic. It is newly renovated and the rooms are very well appointed. The staff are helpful and the location is great. It is close to a lot of restaurants and bars and its an easy 10 minute walk to the city centre. Will definitely be staying again.

Recently stayed here for two nights. The rooms were absolutely spotless, spacious and very comfortable. I had not stayed at a Rydges hotel before and was really impressed. I also attended a function in the function space at the hotel which was well appointed, comfortable with attentive staff. Unfortunately the same can not be said about the staff in the... More

Spend 5 days here and found it right in the middle of a good eating strip and the entertainment centre is right next door. Rooms were very spacious and all the amenities expected are at hand. Good relaxing poolside bar. The other positive it's a five minute walk to the train and bus station and a 20 mon walk to... More

We have just spent two nights at Rydges South Bank. Our room was absolutely superb, although near the rail station you could not hear anything. The beds were extremely comfortable and we could want for nothing. In room amenities were very good. The locations is outstanding for Brisbane., being on South Bank you can walk to everywhere, so many local... More

We stay here by ourselves generally and it's fantastic. This time we took our kids and stayed in a junior suite. It was beautiful and the staff are lovely and helpful! Buffet breakfast is to die for! It's close to some fantastic restaurants as well.

Fantastic hotel - rooms are beautifully appointed, great choice of restaurants (both within the hotel and within the vicinity). Only downside is that there are only 3 lifts so in peak periods there can be a bit of a wait. Definitely our new preferred location over the CBD.
