We stayed at Rydges on a Saturday night to be closer to Southbank. Had a wonderful time, the staff were lovely and the room was pleasant. We had the room on special, so that was an added bonus. We will definitely stay here again, so close to everything.

We arrived just as the corona virus was getting worse but the bar area and dining room was still open and the food very good. The hotel was empty so we pretty much had the place to ourselves. The situation of Rydges South Bank is excellent with great views of the river and the wheel. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The staff were excellent bearing in mind the situation we all found ourselves in. We would definitely stay at Rydges again should we revisit Brisbane in the future.

I chose Rydges for a) the location (which is walking distance to South Bank and QPAC where I was booked to see Dame Edna) & b) price of $228, which I thought was reasonable for a 4 star hotel with all the mod cons (inc free wifi) and a perfect location close to a range of free and paid activities (Goodwill Bridge, Southbank Parklands & lagoon, Wheel of Brisbane etc). The South Brisbane train station is 5 minutes walk away and you can park overnight for $35 in the secure parking station near the hotel. The attached “CBD Cafe Bar Dining” cafe downstairs is there for your coffee & breakfast needs. All in all I’d recommend Rydges for an overnight stay in South Bank.

Despite the hotel being nearly empty due to current crisis, the staff were very friendly and upbeat. Room was great and had a well stocked mini bar. Very handy location as well with heaps of bars and restaurants nearby, and entertainment for the kids. We will definitely stay there again.
