8/10 Very good

Comfy, large rooms in South Bank
We stayed here for 4 nights and it was great. Very comfy (and large!) rooms. Central location within walking distance to tons of stuff in South Bank. Would recommend and we'd stay here again!

Business stay
The 3 room service meals I had were not really edible which is odd given the meal at Bachus was exceptional and I would stay again just to experience it ., Hotel is great .. staff great .. but room service isn’t up to par the food was disappointing all 3 times Overall 8/10 but I’ll walk up the road for food instead of room service dinner and breakfast

10/10 Exceptional

Absolutely amazing and fantastic!
We had an amazing time. My partner and I checked in as a couple and we left as husband and wife! We picked the Rydges at Southbank as it was high quality and close the the Brisbane Wheel where we had our small impromptu wedding. Sarah on the front desk and Sophie the concierge made it even more special by arranging a cheese platter and wine along with a personalised note congratulating us on our wedding. All in all we had an amazing time and will definitely stay there again when we're next in Brisbane.
