Hotel was great. Perfect locatin, short walk to restaurants and markets and not too far from west end, mall or kangaroo point. Staff were very friendly and helpful and saved the day with sewing kit when button fell off dress on a Sunday. Concierge was helpful with transfer options. Would definitely stay again. Although room was located right near lifts not too much noise.

Our second stay at this hotel was similar to the first. The service was excellent. The rooms were clean, tidy and had excellent views of the Brisbane River. The location is great; its an easy walk into the city, the rail line to the airport is a short walk from the hotel. Try the river ferry service, its also a short walk from the hotel. The two restaurants/bars offer great service, a good selection of drinks and reasonable meals.

The Rydges at Southbank, Brisbane has great views of the river, great service and impeccable room. Don't sit near the pool at the pool bar as you will probably end up wet. They need to put up glass barriers to stop the water spraying the drinkers. Overall an excellent experience.

Fantastic location for attendance at Brisbane convention and exhibition centre. Great proximity to train and south bank. Overall felt the rooms were feeling a little tired but still very clean and tidy. My room service breakfast was very ordinary but gave them the benefit of the doubt as they said they had experienced a power outage that morning. A bathroom upgrade should include better hairdryers, those tired white little buzzy things just don't cut it.

This function room has superb views of Brisbane. At night the unobstructed panorama creates a fabulous backdrop and sets the atmosphere. Situated in Southbank, the hotel is within easy walking distance of the CBD.
