Riverside Hotel Southbank

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Have stayed at Riverside a number of times and it’s at a good location to QPAC & Southbank, easy walking distance to great restaurants and pubs and to the markets. Can walk over to the casino and get the Rivercat.

Booked a standard room about a month prior to the trip as one of the best prices and free car parking. Upon arrival i was offered an upgrade to a 1 bed apt for an additional $10 per night which i gladly accepted. The apt had been renovated and everything was more than satisfactory. Bed very comfortable and loved the recliner chairs. Only negative was being on a main road and had to keep the balcony doors closed and then very quiet inside. Air con lounge and bedroom. Only a 10 minute walk to the Wheel Southbank. Will stay again.

As usual, Riverside did not let us down. We arrived, parked the vehicle (for free) and went off to explore the City by City Cat. Upstream to UQ then down stream to the Powerhouse at New Farm for coffee/wine. Back to South Bank for dinner at Egyptian! Walked back to Riverside. So very central to everything cultural

The good news is they are about to refurb all the rooms! When that happens this will become our go to for short stays in BrisVegas. Proximity to GOMA and Southbank is what we look for and the city centre is also a short bridge walk away. Location is quiet and easy walking distance to a string of restaurant options. Staff were friendly and helpful, parking is free and you even get a balcony big enough to sit on! Rooms were spacious and clean, just a bit battered and bruised and in need of some TLC and an update.

Very convenient location, staff all very helpful and freindly, clean and tidy. Went to a concert at QPAC so was in close walking distance. The carpark is great as its secure and price is included with your room.

Comfortable,clean and well positioned for short stays. Location was perfect for access to the city and South Brisbane.Suited our stay whilst attending South Brisbane Day Hospital.Quiet even with location adjacent the William Jolly Bridge.

Nice easy walk to south bank. Plenty of options to walk up to CBD arts area or south bank. Staff were awesome. Onsite parking made it that much easier. Pool was nice to relax in although not the biggest. On site restaraunt that made a beautiful breakfast.

Staff were very helpful to resolve an issue during our check in. Our room was clean and comfortable and surprisingly noise proof from the nearby road. Location is very convenient to Suncorp and central Brisbane. PARKING IS NO ADDITIONAL COST which was a big plus and is quite rare in the city area. Breakfast was lovely. Thank you for a lovely stay.

brilliant value for a neat twin share. we had 2 rooms for a trip to the cricket Full Breakfast at $22 including continental buffet plus choice from the hot menu. Free car parking and great location at South bank make it ideal for a short stay. and friendly helpful staff.

Great place to stay and in walking distance to so many places, esp the QPAC. The staff are very friendly and the room was very clean and comfortable, esp the bed. Would definitely recommend staying there as the hotel rates are extremely reasonable
