Stayed at Rydges South Bank, what a fantastic location. It is close to everything. Was a short bus or taxi ride to Brisbane CBD. Stayed in a king suite, had a partial view of the river, which was fantastic. Loved having a separate living area. Just loved our stay. Staff were great, location was perfect and the weather was fantastic....

I was pleasantly surprised with my stay here, it was more than I was expecting. The staff were so friendly on arrival. There was a poblem with my room as the bed was broken and without hesitation they moved me to another room and apologised, even offering a bottle of wine (I declined but it was a nice gesture).

The best concierge in Brisbane! One of the view Australian hotels that actually take your luggage from your car to your room. A great bonus if travelling alone for work with LOTS of books and luggage! Rooms always clean and fresh, elevators quick and Bacchus restaurant breakfasts are just amazing! I stay here whenever I can for business.

We have just had one night at the Hotel and I must say that it was a great improvement from our stay in February this year when the Hotel was in the middle of renovations and every aspect of the Hotel and service was dysfunctional.

Conveniently located within walking distance to southbank restaraunts and city cat ferry. Staff need to be retrained in hospitality, they all seemed to make it very obvious they were only at work for their pay, not for customer service. Valet parking was very poorly managed. The pool should be re named The Spa, to small and intrusive to other diners.

Very convenient for a conference, superb rooms, clean and comfortable. Excellent bathroom with good towels and accessories. Friendly staff. I had earlier joined priority guest rewards and so I got free wifi. Lots of places to eat nearby. Use of the pool was a bit offputting - it's very public, in the middle of the bar outside, which seemed to...
