Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A great experience at Rydges South Bank as always. My wife and I stayed here for a weekend break while attending a show at the Convention Centre literally around the corner. Convenient to restaurants and the South Bank markets and precinct, it is ideal. We were warmly greet by Carmina at check in and found a lovely box of chocolates in our room. Our only complaint would be that we could only stay for one night and had to rush back to the real world the next morning.

Hotel's Favourite
I have visited Brisbane a number of times, staying in different hotels. Finally found the one I want to come back to. Here’s 3 reasons why: 1. Great location: Walk to trains & ferries in less than 10min. Walk to West End & Fish Lane restaurants & bars. 2. Spacious rooms with one of the most comfortable beds I’ve ever slept in. Honestly the bed was like sleeping on a big puffy marshmallow. 3. Staff are expectedly friendly but also down to earth. Had a few good chats with different staff during my stay 4. Value for money.

Stayed at the Rydges South Bank for 2 nights whist in Brisbane for work in mid February and was pleasantly surprised. Staff were friendly and engaging throughout, Concierge was very helpful, room service attendant was extremely friendly and food was good! The bar on the ground floor is a little dated as is the gym however the location is excellent. Will definitely return.

I had made a booking on Wotif for an overnight business trip for an important meeting in the city the next day. When I arrived to check in it was discovered the booking made online was for two weeks into the future by mistake. My GSA Ashlyn, without hesitation, booked me a room direct with the hotel actually saving me money and also upgrading me to a suite. She checked me in straight away, was super friendly and professional. Absolutely top shelf customer service ❤️

This hotel is very good. I stayed three nights. Hotel is perfectly positioned on South Bank and everything is easily reached on foot in a few minutes. It's no effort at all to walk over one of the many bridges that cross the river to get into the main city centre of Brisbane. My room was great. The hotel staff were all very friendly. Breakfast is a hot and cold buffet and is very high quality with lots of choice. The pool area is great and it's adjacent to a lovely outdoor bar area that has good shade for the sun and the rain. My only complaint is that the pool closes at around 6pm every night. This is no good for business travelers as it's almost impossible to use as you're never back to the hotel by this time each evening. The pool is not supervised anyway, so I don't understand why it has to close so early.

The room was comfortable and clean, the beds were very comfortable. Internet was good. In the arrival they told us we have to pay $55 parking per night. We thought paying $800 room per night this price would be included. On arrival no trolleys for the luggage to take upstairs and the valley guy just left our luggage at the hotel entrance. We thought it would have been good if they help us to move the luggage to the elevators considering we had multiple bags and we had a toddler to look after while checking in. Buffet breakfast was delicious and had a lot of variety for different food requirements. Pool bar was great. Over all the hotel was nice but customer service could improve

Room: Very pleased with the corner Riverview room. Sofa bed did have a slight tilt in it but luckily was only occupied by a child. Internet: Is patchy and kept dropping out, so not great if you plan to do lots of Teams calls etc. Parking: I find the valet parking to be overpriced and somewhat of a rip-off at $55. The fees charged for the service do not seem justified compared to the convenience provided. They used to be around $35. Discount voucher: The hotel offers a $10 voucher off food and beverages for guests opting out of housekeeping. However, it's important to note that the discount is only applied at checkout and provided the night before departure. Wish I had just had my room cleaned instead. Pizza: Ordered a pizza from the cafe which was bland and pretty awful.

During our stay we lost power to our air con and lights for 15minutes but it did return. We rang trying to get ice brought to our room but no one answers the phone. On arrival I asked a couple times if I could park my own car which I was told no. On check out our car was returned to us with a squashed valve and massive scratches in the wheel. I have contacted the hotel multiple times about the issue to which I was told it did not happen on the premises as they have rubber on all the corners and yellow paint on any other surfaces. Funny how our wheel has rubber marks around it and rubber in the scratches. They are now ignoring my emails all together. I would never recommend anyone whom is travelling with a vehicle stay at this hotel. They are happy to take your money and that's it you are on your own.

Absolutely beautiful stay. Checked in about 8:30pm and was greeted by very helpful and friendly staff. Pleased to know that the restaurant was still open until 10pm so I was able to order myself a nice hot meal to take back to my room after a long day travelling i ,,7nternationally. I loved the comfy bed and lovely room, enjoying a delicious espresso coffee first thing in the morning. I recommend staying here and will definitely be returning.
