Arriving at Rydges South Bank I was tired and frustrated after a long trip and without my luggage that hadn’t made the transfer at the airport in Abu Dhabi. I was longing for a shower, a beer and a bed. When I entered my room I was in desperate need for a positive signal in this misery. I walked through...

Extremely impressed with the king suite, room 115. Very large, dedicated work & lounge areas, two large televisions and a big comfy bed. All fittings were great quality, and the room itself was immaculately clean. Large and deep bathtub, great water pressure in the shower. The couch in the living area was comfortable. Would certainly stay again.

We love this hotel as it is close to Qpac. Stayed in a suite which was lovely. There was a mixup with a minibar charge we did not use but a simple phone call sorted it quick smart. Great staff great facilities. Pool bar was excellent as was the range of beers on tap. Will be back!

We last stayed over five years ago, and the renovations have been completed and the hotel looks very different. The rooms are brighter, and the reception area is much improved. The location, for us driving from the Sunshine Coast, was easy and the parking service worked very well. As mentioned by others the staff were friendly and welcoming and the...

My daughter and I recently spent a night at Rydges South Bank, as part of my Christmas gift.

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...

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,...
