Riverside Hotel Southbank

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We were very happy with this hotel. The service was excellent and the room was clean and tidy. Being close to a busy road, we were worried about vehicle noise, but it was very quiet in our room. The hotel is in Southbank and we were able to walk to the theatre and into the city. We'd be happy to stay there again.

We stayed a Saturday night to go to an engagement party near by. I just found the room on Trivago last minute and just picked a basic hotel room as we just wanted to shower and sleep. Will not get a ground floor room again as the room was right near where cars drove in and out and during the night someone yelled "I can't get into my F*#*n room". This was not the hotels fault but stil not nice. The hotel staff were lovely on our checking in and out couldn't fault them. But if I chose to stay again I would request a higher floor

a great weekend. I enjoyed the economical dishes in the restaurant . The staff were friendly and helpful. Thank you for letting me park my car before and after my event at the library. I am sure to return.

Riverside is an older establishment, with real keys, free parking, and plenty of it. It is centrally located in Southbank and a very reasonable rate. The restaurant is small but well priced and the food was very good . Great value for money. Staff also very nice, although room service was limited. A relaxing get away in the middle of a bustling city.

Disappointed at check in despite an email to the hotel informing of a late arrival 22.10 reception all shut up, disgruntled staff member behind shutters tried to ignore our arrival , spoke to her through the shutters , to give our name eventually opened them slightly to take details of our credit card pass the room key and quickly pointed us to the direction of the room.

My partner and I stayed at this hotel on the night we went to the ballet at QPAC. We picked it for the proximity to QPAC, and we were not expecting the fantastic service we had! We were upgraded into a better room and given late check out as it was a special event, all courtesy of the hotel. All of the staff we encountered were very lovely and made our stay much more pleasant. The room was clean and the bed was surprisingly very comfortable. The restaurant was also lovely, we had a nice dinner that was budget friendly but that was also very nice. Only thing I would suggest is to not bother with the continental breakfast buffet. There wasn’t a lot of option for $17, you would have been much better off just ordering something off the menu. Definitely would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting something close to QPAC or the other areas surrounding!

This was a repeat stay: for work & my husband tagged along... it’s functional, budget but clean. Breakfast is good, all staff are helpful and friendly. Accommodated with Gluten Free bread for continental breakfast. Great thanks.

Very helpful when booking and in finding us a good place to leave our motorhome for two nights - but almost impossible to get a drink one night when the bar wasn't busy ! - good location (albeit a bit difficult to find because of the roadworks) and quite comfortable

Very well priced for Southbank. Well positioned for cultural plaza and convention centre and short walk into CBD. Hotel looks a little tired in the corridors but room was clean and comfortable, air-con looked old but worked very efficiently and staff were friendly and helpful. Add in free parking and wi-fi and can't go wrong.

Like this hotel because it offers a very good service, is close to tourist attractions and cultural centres. Staff very friendly and accommodating - free parking is a bonus. Can recommend it in all respects.
