Hotel is currently undergoing room renovations and upgrades and I must stay these are long overdue. Rooms are old and tired and rather blahh. Bathroom was very squeezy would only be 2mtrs x 3mtrs with toilet, bath and vanity- definitely needs and exhaust fan as it is awfully hot and very, very stuffy. Be sure to pack your sleeping mask...

For the second year in a row, I have stayed at Rydges while attending Supanova at the Convention centre. The location alone makes it perfect - you can exit from the plaza level, cross a courtyard and you're at the convention centre! The rooms are clean, neat, the beds comfortable, and the staff at the front desk were amazingly friendly....

Recently stayed at Rydges South Bank while attending a conference at the Brisbane Convention Centre next door. While the rooms could do with up-dating they were clean and presentable with the staff very friendly and helpful. Worth staying there for its convenient location.

Stayed there for 3 nights whilst Supanova was on at the convention centre, perfect location for the event. Upon arrival I was greeted by incredibly friendly and helpful staff, the treatment received by all staff during my entire stay was perfect. 10/10 for that.

Just not worth it for the price. No robes in the room, air con didn't work, pool was closed for a private function. Room was small, bathroom was tiny and because of the super duper water pressue, the shower curtain either got blown out and water all over the floor, or sucked in onto you while you were showering.

Really great location. Rooms tired and need updating. Bathrooms original and cheap, not in keeping with price tag. Demanded full payment in advance at checkin. We have never been asked to do this before in huge range of hotels visited. Maybe they know they need to update the rooms... Lobby and bar areas possibly taken all the budget. No ice...

I recall when this hotel was first built and years later it has become a landmark hotel in the precinct.
