Ours was a last minute booking but we were lucky enough to secure a room. We were going to a show at the Convention Centre so the location was superb - only two minutes walk. The first thing we were presented with at check-in was a room upgrade! Then for a few extra dollars we had valet parking for the...

Great location (especially for South Bank and the convention centre), helpful staff and modern rooms. On a previous stay I had 'a room with a view’ but as this stay was in-late/out-early I opted for a standard room. The room was just as nice but it would be remiss of me not to mention that the view out over south...

Hotel was fantastic. Exceeded expectations really in terms of service (cleanliness) and spaciousness. Beds were great, comfy and supportive. King beds aren't just two singles pushed together. Food in Bacchus and even CBD was pleasantly of great quality (we will definately be re-visiting these dining areas). Staff were extremely helpful and efficient. Location can't get better with southbank just across...

The room at Rydges Southbank was a great size and very comfortable. A little disappointed that we called housekeeping for an extra champagne glass which took an hour to get to the room. In this time I had already gone to the bar to get one as couldn't wait that long. Also it took 30 minutes of waiting for my...

I've not noticed this at any other hotel: I got a $10 credit against food & drink within the hotel for each day that I didn't require any housekeeping service. That's great because I don't like having people come in my room for essentially no useful service. In many hotels it's a real hassle just to try to stop them...

We enjoyed a few quiet relaxing days away. We requested a quiet room and they delivered. This was our second visit within two months. This time we upgraded to a balcony with river views. Well worth the extra we paid.

Very frustrating trying to book a night at Rydges at South Bank.

Hotel was fabulous - rooms were very clean and spacious. Great for families with the pool and bar area, something for everyone. Hotel is in a great location at Southbank so much to do and see the kids were entertained the whole holiday - which is half the battle!

Check in and check out can be a little slow at times but generally I enjoy staying at Rydges Southbank which is why I keep coming back. Also as a GHA Black member I receive an upgrade to a suite which is most appreciated.
