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. No noise, comfortable beds and good sized bathrooms. Front desk check in and out could be a bit quicker though and my room got hot throughout the... More

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 ! The food that the hotel offers is crap and expensive and I would not touch the adjoining bar under any exception. Rather... More

Dear Sally B, A disappointing review to read and one that provides a little confusion. We certainly appreciate and accept all feedback, positive or constructive. The Hotel completed a full rooms refurbishment in May 2016 which delivered a fantastic modern and luxurious product for our guests to enjoy. It was disheartening to read that if you had stayed in these... More

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

We are a family of 4 my husband, 2 boys (aged 4 and 20 months) and myself.

I stayed here at the weekend with my family and I was very happy with Rydges Southbank. Room is large and has a good size sofa as well as two good double beds. No bath in bathroom but not needed for a short stay. Staff from concierge to check in were friendly and efficient. We had room service while here... More

A stone throw away from the convention center. A short walk to the Dinosaurs discovery and a panoply of restaurants and activity. Nice room with the essentials. The only thing that can be better in the room is a better coffee the instant one just sucks. The Bacchus is nice and the gym is nice. Internet is fast.
