Riverside Hotel Southbank

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We had a great time due to the excellent location near many attractions.

Easy to access train to airport and other destinations. Great dining and shopping options with some of the best museums in Australia just down the street. Ask for a room on the north side and get great views of the river and city center. Staff is friendly and very efficient. Nice bar and restaurant.

Staff was good, parking was free and it was walking distance to everything. Loved it

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

We chose this hotel because of the low price and it's location in South Bank. I wished we would have been a little closer to all of the action in South Bank but it wasn't that bad of a walk and it felt very safe. Nice, FREE parking garage. Nice, clean, fairly large room. The bathroom had a lot of nice shampoos, lotions, shaving creams, etc. For the price, the place was great and I would def recommend.

For the late check in security guy helped us. Thanks god he was there and he was the only good thing we`ve seen there. Reception wasn`t helpfull. No 24 hrs service. Very early check out at 8.30. We stayed a few more hours and they charged $50 extra. Rooms are too small and very noisy outside. Water pressure was too low. Breakfast was finished at 9.30 when i rang reception. Didin`t enjoyed our one night stay there. I prefered to stay in my car which would be more comfy.

The hotel is far more out dated than the photos lead you to believe. The lobby has been updated but the rooms could use some attention. No internet in the rooms. For the price I paid I expected more.

This hotel is located at the north end of the South Bank area, just across the river from downtown Brisbane. On the map it looks a little isolated, but that is not really the case. First, they have a free underground garage and that is a HUGE advantage in that area where public parking starts at $15 for the first four hours. Second, there is a boardwalk that starts about 50 yards from the hotel (just across the street and down the block towards the river) that runs all the way down the South Bank area--great for joggers--that is filled with shops and restaurants. (If you go out on the boardwalk at dusk, be sure to look up--you'll see some huge bats coming out for the evening's hunt!) The rooms were nice (flat screen TV, private bath, clean). There was one non-functional power outlet (that's the "4" I gave for upkeep). The only thing I found annoying was that they charge about $30/day for internet connection (that's the "1" I gave for amenities). The best way around that is to go to the bar (before 10 PM!) and buy a beer to get a free half hour of WiFi connection. Other than that I was quite pleased with my stay.
