I stayed here for four nights recently and was very pleasantly surprised with the hotel and staff. I am a club member but had forgotten my card and was provided with a temporary one on arrival. This prompted an upgrade on arrival to a lovely room on the sixth floor with an extra room containing a lounge and kitchen area...

Once again I was disappointed with Rydges. I admit its in a perfect position and does have a wonderful breakfast, with excellent staff attending there. However, checking in was done by a very bored staff member who mumbled his way through instructions and seemed not to really care if he was there or not. I was there for a conference...

Top location, wonderful restaurant, very clean rooms. Main restaurant is amazing for dinner, downstairs cafe is not so good. If you go GREEN ( meaning without cleaning for a day) they give you $10 to spend on F and B.

Room was very spacious with comfortable double beds. We had a view of the city and river. Restaurants and entertainment in the near precinct. Dinner at the onsite cafe was most enjoyable and included in the Showstopper which is a wonderful idea.

We stayed at this hotel for the opening of the Brisbane Festival, which was very convenient, being only a short stroll away.

We were given a lovely spacious room with a balcony. The bed was very comfortable and everything we needed was within a short walking distance. Our room and balcony had a fairly nice view over the pool area but the noise from squealing children might disturb some. I felt really at home and comfortable here

Great location and the service and food was fine however rooms and other amenities are very tired and being an old building there seems to be very little in the form of noise suppression. The carpets in the hallways are so thin that every footstep, every door open and close and every conversation echoes throughout. The housekeeping staff start banging...
