Palmwoods, Australia
Reviewed 10 February 2016

Excellent location for exploring the river and Brisbane CBD via ferries, attend concerts,etc at QPAC etal, enjoying South Bank including a myriad of cafes & restaurants. Rooms are good although bathrooms need attention - below par bath/shower, no extrator fan, small. Otherwise well appointed, although TV remote hit and miss. Staff & restaurants excellent. Good little pool area.

Good service, great location and nice rooms. Be aware that the gym and pool are out of action until mid-February. I stayed in a room designed for someone with limited mobility and it was a lovely room with lots of space and easy access for a wheelchair. Free wifi is a real benefit with Rydges hotels.

When I last visited Rydges I joined the Priority Guest rewards program. I was delighted with the extras that came my way on my recent visit. I certainly received value for money. Better still, after a glitch with my room allocation - due to a human error in the reception area - I got extra special treatment. I appreciative that...

Room 719. Great view across the roof tops to the city (some noise from the extractors). Ripped curtains in both sides and the extractor is a recipe for legionnaires.

In Brisbane for a show at QPac. Rydges is very close to the convention centre, QPac, Southbank parklands and more. Staff very friendly. Costs a lot to park your car, but a small price to pay for the convenient location.
