Great location if you are spending your time at south bank. Generous sized rooms. Small but well designed bathrooms. Good sized balcony. The kids enjoyed the heated pool whilst I enjoyed a coffee and the pool water did not hurt their eyes like some can. Breakfast was the best buffet we have had, everything was great. Not hit and miss...

The service at Rydges south bank was very good. The front desk enthusiastically to find me a room when my agent had booked the wrong nights, room service was quick and food was a good standard. Bed was comfortable, didnt have to wait long for lifts and location was excellent as it is close to Brisbane Convention Centre, Performing Arts,...

A great room, which was functional and comfortable. A comfy bed, good aircon and styled well. The bathroom was a bit small, but it was sufficient for what I needed. The only issue is that the walls are paper thin. I could hear everything going on in the room next to me. Why people are awake at 5.00am having chats,...

Stayed here for a week during a business visit to South Brisbane and was impressed with their services, location and general quality of the room amenities. Room size was reasonable, with moderate to high quality furnishings. It was quite busy but still they were quick to respond to service requests.

Stay at Rydges Southbank for a conference & a short weekend away. We had a King Suite on the 3rd level. Fantastic large room, very clean, comfortable king bed and nice decor however would have preferred a room facing the river not over the convention centre. We had the King Suite Decadence package which had chocolates & champagne on arrival,...

We were in a junior suite, which was pretty good but was unfortunately on a lower floor so had a view of the Conservatorium across the street (although you could get a peek at southbank through the nearby buildings). They were undergoing renovations in the foyer when we were there, which may have meant we got a better deal than...

Other than being a fabulous hotel in itself, it is within easy walking distance of the best strip of restaurants in Brisbane. Little Stanley st is right outside your door, with everything to keep everyone happy on a culinary trip. Also, QPAC is just opposite for shows, theatre etc. Southbank itself is also worthy of exploration. The hotel is everything...

The location of the hotel is great on the South Bank within easy walking distance of the City, museums and restaurants.

A great hotel within the South Bank area with restaurants and Qpac virtually a few steps away. Recommend this hotel over the unimpressive hotel next door which is no longer living up to its mantra.A comfortable modern room at a good rate and with great service from all staff made this stay stand out. Will definitely return.
