I was very happy with my decision to stay at Riverside. The staff were outstanding over my entire 2 night stay. To be clear, this is not a 5 star resort, but the room was very clean, neat and tidy and was entirely appropriate for the price point. I would happily stay at this hotel again if I needed to...

My teenage son and I stayed one night in a motel style room. It was very clean, had lovely decor and the beds were so comfortable! We felt very welcomed by all the staff at the front desk & the restaurant. Riverside is in a great spot to walk to explore Southbank, QPAC, GOMA & CBD. We found it an...

This accommodation is a hidden gem that I never knew existed even though I have been to Southbank many times.

Stayed two nights Riverside Hotel. Staff excellent. Friendly and helpful. Breakfast great and lunch good value. Room was spotless. Only disappointment was bathroom. Obviously handicapped room. Sliding door and shower curtain. Flooded room first night. No vanity to hold items and no plug in wash basin. Overall good value for money paid. Avoid room 2 if you want better bathroom....

Riverside is excellently located for access to the Brisbane CBD and Southbank attractions. Staff are friendly and helpful and rooms pleasant and well-presented. Ample free parking and free wi-fi. A good value, obvious choice for a visit to Brisbane.

Great price, excellent location. The Bad it was dirty. Used Room service trays were dumped outside the doors of the rooms on the floor and weren't collected until following day. Not nice when you come back from a evening on the town Pretty late and your tripping over dinner trays on the floor.
