Arrived on the 29th and departed on the 3rd. Absolutely fabulous. Special event night New Year's Eve was great. We had a 10th floor balcony room with the fireworks right in front of us. Will be going back again. Room service and CBDs cafe meals fantastic. Staff very efficient, polite and friendly. Would recommend to everyone. A truly great stay.

Last weekend was the second time I've traveled to Rydges South Bank. This time the renovations had been completed and the rooms were stunning. My partner and I stayed in a King Suite on the 6th floor. We found the rooms very modern and luxurious. The location is the best asset to Rydges Southbank. We regularly walked across the road...

This place has all you really need in a hotel, complete luxury feel throughout, welcoming and accommodating staff, great breakfast and views. In a quieter location for that more relaxed atmosphere and feel, easy access to public transport to head into Brisbane CBD

Great location to access South Bank precinct and public transport. Contains several good food outlets. Rooms are very comfy and appointed though bathroom was cramped. Parking limited to valet. Service was very good.

Stayed one night, holiday special in a hotel that is usually one of the more expensive. Standard room was smallish, but ok. The basic ones face west, so you get a setting sun and no verandah with them. Remarkable carpet, and everthing was clean and worked. Staff were all very pleasant and helpful, even the lady dealing with a printer...

We stayed at Rydges last year for our wedding anniversary and returned again this year to celebrate. Since we last stayed the hotel has undergone refurbishment and the result is stunning. The room was beautifully appointed, as was the restaurant and pool area. As a Brisbane local I have to say that Rydges South Bank is possibly the best place...

I stayed for a night in January while attending the Brisbane International Tennis Tournament. Rydges is a very short walk to South Brisbane Train Station so it makes getting out of the city very easy if you want to explore a little further out. It is also right in the heart of Southbank's restaurants and bars, close to Southbank beach...
