Good cheap hotel

Overall the hotel was good value. Situated in a great location, a 5 minute walk into Southbank and about 10 minute walk to Queen street. Free secure parking was a bonus. I was allowed to leave my car in the car park for a couple of hours after check out.

very good value

The hotel was hard to find at first, Brisbane is full of one way streets! The staff was helpful and friendly. The room was clean and spacious. The hotel was a close walk to southbank and had a nice little pool.

Great location, grungy room

Even though the room was very clean it still felt dirty because of the old carpet and furnishings. Hate the liquid soap dispensers at shower and sink and couldn't hang towels up as rail broken and hook was above toilet. Great location as close to museum and parklands and just cross the bridge to Queen street Mall. Room in need of an upgrade though...

delightful

The women and men at the front desk are delightful and so helpful and pleasant. The room is practical and comfortable and I love the kitchen and washing machine. The pool is great to use and the location fantastic. This is my third stay and I will definately stay again at the Riverside when I come again to Brisbane
