Stayed for one night on a stopover at the end of a family holiday.
The Rydges South Bank is a comfortable, well located (for South Bank excursions) hotel with a friendly atmosphere.
Parking at the hotel is purely via valet parking and at the times we checked in and checked out it was incredibly busy and chaotic yet the gentlemen running the parking seemed to know what was going on and how to handle the traffic, the cars and the guests all at once.
After a several large breakfasts over the previous days we really wanted a simple breakfast in the hotel room, a request to room service for some milk and bowls to go with our cereal was no problem at all.
The concierge staff were very helpful with our online airline check-in for the next day and with suggestions of nearby attractions that our children might be interested in.
The room, a junior suite, was clean and very comfortable. Our children slept on the foldout sofa bed which was made up and ready to go when we arrived.
Another nice touch was the prices on the wine in the mini-bar. They charged normal prices for a bottle of wine, which made it much easier to open a bottle knowing we were only going to drink half of it.
I would definitely look up the Rydges chain again after a lovely stay at South Bank.
