Very disappointed with this hotel. It looks like the only upgrade this hotel has had is in the bar area downstairs. Bathroom looks old and shower head broken. Musty smell in hallway and bathroom. Needs a coat of paint to freshen up the place. I was really looking forward to staying here as it was a weekend getaway for my wife and I, We were just disappointed. Will stay in the city next time.

Good location in heart of Southbank, with city approx. 15 mins walk away. However, the standards of this hotel were certainly not consistent with other 4 star hotels I have stayed in. Very outdated and very much in need of makeover. Overpriced - in excess of $300 for one night mid week stay Room moderate size, but bathroom very small and again much needed renovation required. Staff courteous

Great experience! We enjoyed CBD cafe for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Also, loved the concierge and reception staff. Very close to South Bank and lots of places to sit and then keep on for those who had health issues regarding mobility. Great service without being intrusive!!!! Compared well to previous hotel we stayed in!! Many thanks.

Its all about accessibility to the Brisbane cultural precinct and South Bank boardwalk and cafes. Leave your car at the door and walk everywhere after you've checked in. The pool is great, the cafes and food service all good. Staff are friendly. Good value for money but it is starting to look a bit tired and needs a physical spruce up.

Staff were exemplary from moment we pulled up. Bit hard to find if you don't know where to look. We had city side accommodation which was quite special at night and there were NO noise problems whatsoever. Will return and would not hesitate to recommend. Apparently new main restaurant is opening shortly and that was the only detrimental point I could make. There was NO main restaurant. and the Bar which served great cold beer and had a great atmosphere was not the ideal place for a quite dinner.

I booked at Rydges given the proximity to the Brisbane Exhibition and Convention Centre. Whilst all aspects of the venue were clean and comfortable, I was unable to achieve a discounted price for the room when I booked. This was the only concern to me - as location; location; location!!!

There was renovation work going on so the parking was a bit awkward , but the staff were friendly and efficient to assist with this. The room was nice and the reception staff were very helpful. The position was great as you could utilise the cafe downstairs and you are in walking distance to so much more at Southbank. Enjoyable stay!

Excellent location. I attended a 3 day conference at Brisbane Convention Centre and I had direct access from the 2nd level of Rydges to the top floor of the Convention Centre. 2 mins only. Also, the best location with many very near by superb restaurants and cafes, walk along Southbank after dinner and only 5 minute walk to see a show at QPAC. Very quick check in and check out. Will definitely stay again.

We had a great stay. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. When we asked for something, ie leave luggage at reception and collect before our flight; nothing was any trouble. The room service was much appreciated. The location to South Brisbane train station was close and South Bank only across the road was terrific. The breakfast buffet was tops.

The prefect location for a visit to Brisbane. Restaurants at your door, and the staff are very helpful about the surrounds. Highly recommended.

My friend and I wished to go to art exhibitions mainly and Rydges was recommended by a local. We found the location splendid and we were able to walk to all three venues and were near the river which is a lovely place to walk along. We had a room with 3 beds rather than 2 but it was comfortable and pleasant with a balcony to sit out on in the morning.

Well positioned hotel on South Bank close to all the cultural facilities. The rooms are large, bed was comfortable, room service was prompt. There is a good cafe downstairs. The staff on the front desk were helpful. I liked the hotel but can only afford to stay here when there are discounts as otherwise it is too expensive.

Great location, excellent spacious room, and curiously, even though I had nominated one of the two newspapers offered, both were outside my door the next morning. Having a microwave and sink in the room is a great idea, but the hotel's restaurants are excellent.
