I've stayed here many times - always great location and good value for money. Great room service - timely and tasty. The bar/restaurant downstairs is great and well priced. Bacchaus bar is superb for a drink.

I absolutely love the full length curtains that go full length of the wall for the mountain/city view rooms. Looking over the back court yards of the entertainment centre is quite charming. Sitting by the pool on the deck is absolutely exquisite and don't even get me started on the buffet breakfast it is hands down stunning,such a huge range...

Currently staying in this hotel for business. Nice to have a microwave & kettle in the room - no complimentary biscuits though :( So many options for food literally across the road I rang the excellent Spaghetti House across the road for take-away to change from room service.

Recently stayed at Rydges South Bank Brisbane for three nights and the hotel was outstanding. Our room was spacious and modern and the hotel facilities were excellent. The hotel has a great restaurant and a number of bars and is in easy walking distance to Southbank entertainment and dining options.

Rooms were quiet,spacious and very comfortable.Breakfast in...

We stayed overnight at this hotel and we were in a King suite which was very nice. The friendly staff, great beds and fast wifi were all what made the hotel. Southbank is a great place to stay. The air train was quick and convenient.

This hotel is in a good location. The rooms are clean but the bathrooms need upgrading. The customer service / reception staff were only average. They do sell airport train tickets at the front counter ( if you ask) which saves you time at the station. Try the James Squire pub up the road for nice food.
