I spent a night at the Rydges South Bank and was treated wonderfully. I had a late arrival and was picked up at the airport by the hotel driver. The night was rainy and very wet but with door to door service and a premier drive into town this wasnt a concern. The hotel location is brilliant, close to everything...

Stayed two nights while attending a nearby conference. Plenty of restaurants close by and easy access to the Southbank river parklands. Although the bar area can be noisy, my room on the 9th flloor and on opposite side of hotel was well insulated from the noise. Excellent breakfast with broad choices of food in hotel restaurant.

Fantastic location opposite Southbank, which was absolutely lovely at this time of year with Bougainvilias in bloom. Ferry just 2 minute walk from hotel which provides convenient access to Brisbane shopping precinct in just 5 minutes, but we rode it to the UQ campus and it sure beats sitting in Sydney traffic getting to one of the Sydney Universities. Terrific...

The location on the South Bank was great to walk around South Bank arts district, downtown, visit West End, etc. Our room was on the small side but we had a good river view. The staff was courteous. The pool is more for a bool par/part atmosphere instead of relaxing. But the fitness room was nice. We would choose it...

Great hotel conveniently located at south bank Brisbane. Parking is valet only so I would recommend catching public transport. There is a train station 100-200m away so easy access with public transport. The pool bar is very rallying but drinks are expensive.

Adapting a menu is never easy this was done with grace, eager to put any mistakes right. Food was okay but not upto their normal standard this time. Not a wide range of breakfast food but all the old favourites. Just round the corner from South Bank Car Park easy waking distance. Plenty of room many seating options. Wifi for...

Stayed here in November with another couple. This is a pleasant hotel within minutes walk of all the attractions on the Southbank and a short walk to main shops.
