The room was ample and clean, with all standard and hoped for amenities including an ironing board - useful considering I was on a convention. Staff quite attentive, in particular in the bar (2nd floor) with an open area - a very nice location to hang around with colleagues after hours if you are staying in the hotel or duting...

Check in was a breeze, efficient, polite & friendly service. The staff were more than happy to attend to our check in needs. Our room (1016) had a great view of the Brisbane River, South Bank & City, also a very comfortable bed. The rooms are a tad on the "tired" side, but this didn't detract from our stay in...

Amazing staff with superb hospitality and service during our stay at Rydges located at South Bank Brisbane.

Stayed for a week whilst attending a conference located at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. Nice and easy to get from accommodation to conference venue. Room was clean, bed comfortable, pillows great. Shower was over bath, which I am personally not a fan of, but worked fantastically. Heaps of storage for clothes, good desk with desk height power points...

Rooms were clean, tidy but ordinary, nothing special. Staff were fine, again, okay and fine. Could not think of anything bad, nor good, it was okay, not memorable either way and just left thinking nothing in particular.

Stayed here during a conference. Overall it was fine and in some areas really good like the amazing breakfast, the friendly staff. Its in a great location but I would say it was probably a bit too expensive for what you get. Some of the rooms a looking a bit tired.

All in all - I was underwhelmed !. Attended a conference the BCEC (so the hotel location and the connecting door and v short walk to the BCEC was great). Sadly - that was the only thing great. Expected that my large suitcase would be delivered to my room after I arrived by taxi - but was disappointed when it...

Took my wife to see a show at Qpac and for a night away for her birthday. The location is great for restaurants, bars and Southbank and the theatres are only 5 min walk. The hotel room was clean and roomy enough but unfortunately the service was underwhelming. The $40 cost to park overnight was ridiculous too. We could not...

Attended a conference at the conference centre next door so the hotel location was great. Unfortunately, review goes downhill from there. Rooms are tired and very dated. My room was disabled so difficult to comment fairly on bathroom. Close to restaurants but definitely not worth the money. 3 star hotel with 5 star room rate.
