Riverside Hotel Southbank

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room was clean and tidy and what we needed. The only issue we had was the shower water pools across the bathroom floor and only eventually makes its way to the drain, wetting a large area of the floor in the process. No mop or anything to dry it so we had to use towels or getting to the loo in the night could have been dangerous!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Riverside Hotel. My daughter and I booked the one bedroomed apartment. I slept on the sofa bed which the staff had made up for me. Some people might feel the springs on the edges but I had a comfortable nights sleep in the middle. The cutlery draw needed a bit of a clean but overall the room felt nice and clean and we were very comfortable. Having the car parking was a huge bonus, the staff were really welcoming and friendly, nice, food for breakfast and a great location. Would happily stay there again.

We stayed here for 2 nights. The staff were extremely helpful and polite. The room was immaculate, we had a 1 bedroom river view room. It had a little kitchen which was fully stocked and fine for cooking a meal, a dining table, sofa bed(which was made up for my son), TV washing machine, dryer and balcony. The only downside was that there was a lot of road noise. Would definitely recommend

Fantastic location, staff friendly, helpful and very professional. Room recently renovated, very clean. The food in the Resturant was delightful, highly recommend the breakfast buffet. Highly recommend

Nice clean room i was in level 5 best rooms you can get a view of brisbane and they offer free parking. Restaurant and bar excellent service and nice food. Chef quality meals and desserts to blow your mind.

We found this establishment to be amazing. The staff are incredibly helpful and so friendly and approachable(nothing is ever to much for them). The rooms are comfortable and clean. The location feels very secure while still being close to the city.

This has been a truly excellent visit. The food was quick and delicious. Special commendations go to Eloise and Mario who were the perfect hosts and ensured we had a really good evening. If you’re in the Southbank area, definitely come here.

The Riverside just so accommodating even when I wanted to be downgraded and mucked up their planning. The place is central to all music and art venues. Room are just so clean. They have the best coffee.

Really enjoyed our stay. The staff were the best thing about the hotel. Friendly, helpful and consistent with their information. They have fostered a really positive customer focused philosophy at the hotel.

I recently stayed at this surprising hotel, right beside the city. A brief walk over the bridge and we were right in the heart of Brisbane for shopping or restaurants. Crisp clean sheets, fluffy towels and new carpet, lifts and comfy beds can be found in this hotel. Bathrooms slightly outdated, but, you are only in there for 5 minutes. My room had a balcony which looked over the roadway to the city but road noise was simply cancelled by closing the door. Aircon whisper quiet to allow for sleep and new looking reception area and restaurant (however I didnt eat at the restaurant) Great position for the City, casino or a show/convention.
