Rydges Southbank good location, large rooms, unfortunately below average service

Great location, good size rooms. As we had an interconnected room we unfortunately had noisy neighbours who would come back to room late each night and talk loudly. Not Rydges fault but something to keep in mind. Housekeeping very friendly ... more

Fantastic Hotel, staff & facilities- will be going back.

Great rooms, lovely decor and the staff are very friendly & helpful. The bar & bistro serves a good range of food, great spot for casual meetings. Location location as they say - can’t be beaten. Will be returning.

Convenient location, great transport links and a friendly place to stay.

The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. Great location when arriving by airport link train- just remember that it’s better to get off at South Brisbane and not South Bank. Close to a huge variety of eateries, South Bank parklands ... more
