We had a family gathering there, booked 13 rooms, and position was very central Very close to Southbank, lots for restaurants, pools and entertainment. Rooms are clean and tidy, and sizable. We had some difficulty with family on different levels, and getting between levels was difficult. The pool and pool area is lovely, and the restaurant for breakfast is excellent.

The staff in every area of this accommodation are extremely friendly and helpful. The reception area and entrance are not that appealing, however the pool bar and restaurant are very inviting and relaxing for a drink or a meal. Although we did not get to eat there as we were only staying overnight and had other plans. The rooms were...

I love it when a business hires fantastic staff. Everyone we dealt with, from the valet to the cleaner, were lovely. The room was great, with a fantastic view of the river and wheel. The thing which most impressed us about the room was the bed - it was even more comfortable than our one at home (which we spent...

Such a great hotel, friendly staff, and so close to many places. Great view of the river especially at night. We could walk with three small children to Southbank pools, the City Cat, Wheel of Brisbane, QPCA, the Convention center, train station, cinema, museum. Thanks for making our second visit to Rydges another great summer holiday memory.

Rydges Southbank is ideally situated just a few hundred metres from the South Brisbane train station. Get off the Airtrain walk out of the station and turn right.
