Located right in the middle of Southbank makes Rydges the perfect place to stay. Terrific views & walk out balconies add to the joy Room was clean, well appointed & bed was comfortable. All staff we encountered were lovely & very attentive.

Rydges Southbank has always been great for us. This time we had a queen room with city views - amazing looking at the eye and the city lights.
