Well we booked in for an overnight stay, because we had our sons reception at Rydges. The room was fabulous with all the trimmings you needed. Big 48 inch TV. Well presented bathroom with a full mirror. It seems to be the way these days, but parking was an extra cost!! The actual reception was magic. Everything went clockwork and...

Having stayed here before and giving it a top rating, we were curious if it could keep its rating this time. The welcome was up there, the refurbished rooms are grand. The bar attentants slipped a little on professionalism, but the restaurant staff made up for it in the morning. The location is still a major plus for getting around...

I have stayed at this hotel many times with my young family. It is located within walking distance of many attractions and just a stones throw to Brisbane CBD. We are always treated well by the staff (although my little ones can be rather boisterous while I'm checking in/ out) and the buffet breakfast is to die for!

Stayed here again recently and although undergoing some renovations, our stay was without any inconvenience or disturbance. The staff here are always exceptionally helpful and make your stay enjoyable. We made use of the CBD bar also and found it quite reasonable.
