We enjoyed a few quiet relaxing days away. We requested a quiet room and they delivered. This was our second visit within two months. This time we upgraded to a balcony with river views. Well worth the extra we paid.

I gave up in disgust at the multiple electronic steps to be finally put through to the Reservations area at South bank in Brisbane, only for the phone to ring endlessly until someone chose to pick it up and then (no name given) explain she was covering for...

Dear Greg T I'm sorry to read that you were not able to simply book accommodation here with us at Rydges South Bank.

Hotel was fabulous - rooms were very clean and spacious. Great for families with the pool and bar area, something for everyone. Hotel is in a great location at Southbank so much to do and see the kids were entertained the whole holiday - which is half the battle!

Check in and check out can be a little slow at times but generally I enjoy staying at Rydges Southbank which is why I keep coming back. Also as a GHA Black member I receive an upgrade to a suite which is most appreciated.

I had the unfortunate displeasure of staying at this hotel for business in Feb 2017,the issues simplified are. -Extremely poor service. -Under renovation during whole 2 week stay while not advised when booking. -Gym and spa usable due to cleanliness. -Rude/ unhelpful valet service. The only good part of this stay was a conversation had with a duty manager.

I had booked the most basic room but was delighted to find upon arrival that my room had been upgraded to a very spacious room with a beautiful view. The room was immaculate and the bed was super comfy. Check-in and check-out was very efficient. The only (very minor) criticism would be the long wait for the elevator at times.
