Great location! South bank was a great location to visit the city. Very helpful staff.

beautiful location, lots of walkingn paths, entertainment and restaurants.

First off the staff was wonderful very helpful. The property was clean and inviting. Our room was comfortable and view of the river a delight. We drove in the hotel entry, and as with many city street hotels there isn't much room, it was quiet congested. The valets were great and very helpful, we did pay for parking. For anyone in a wheelchair the pool is raised, that means you can not just wheel up to the side of the pool, you have to use the chair lift, not as convenient. I did not end up using the pool, plus keep in mind pool closes at 6pm. I'm not sure if it was just the accessible room we had, or if all baths are the same, but the sink was very little with very little counter space. With one just one small shelf on the side it didn't leave much room for items. They offer a 'going green' program, meaning not to have towels changed daily, but with just one small towel rack and one hook to hang wet towels, it doesn't make much it easy for used ones to dry. The bed was very comfortable and plenty of pillows! It was nice to have an iron and board to freshen up our wrinkled closes before heading out the room. We really liked how many power plugs were in the room! AND they weren't hidden behind the bed or night stand! We had an enjoyable stay at Rydges South Bank!

I'd been to Brisbane in 2008 and stayed on the other side of town from the Rydges. After my experience at Rydges, I'd opt to stay in South Bank again. The location was great along the Brisbane River, with easy access to the CBD and restaurants. The staff was friendly and helpful. I especially liked the copy of the Australian newspaper left at my door each morning.

We had a very enjoyable stay at Rydges South Bank. The rooms were impecable, the service was professional and the staff were very friendly. Thank you for a great stay. We will difinately be back!
