                Great position and value for money.”

                My wife andI have just spent four nights at the Riverside hotel and were totally satisfied. The position was perfect for us as we were attending the Asia Pacific Triennial at the Queensland Art Gallery and GOMA. These galleries were just across the road. In addition it is close to good restaurants, within walking distance of the CBD in Brisbane and the Southbank attractions. We stayed at the Riverside during the previous Triennial three years ago and it is as good now as then. The style is perhaps a little dated, but we do not go to Brisbane just for a stylish hotel. The room was large and well appointed and quiet at night. I t had everything we needed.

                location - stroll to qpac

                this was a great find for visiting southbank and proved to be just a stroll to to the museum, qpac (performing arts), art gallery and the delightful southbank gardens alongside the river. it is also easily accessible by foot into the city. the room we had was a basic hotel room with a single bed and also a queen and both were very comfortable. the room was a little dated, but very clean and it was a lovely surprise to find we had a balcony (think all rooms do have). it was a real bonus to have secure, covered parking included in the very reasonable tariff. last visit to brisbane cost an extra $30 for parking. i would stay again because of: price, cleanliness, free parking and mainly location for visiting theatre and other southbank attractions.

                great location, good staff, and room service was suprisingly good

                I wasn't able to stay at my usual hotel so I got a room at the Riverside Hotel. I was pleasantly surprised by my stay. The room service food was above average, the rooms are clean but a bit aged. It's very close to the art galleries and museums at South Bank, and easy enough to get to the CBD or other suburbs around Brisbane. If you aren't spending much time at the hotel, and just need a bed to sleep in I would definitely recommend it.

                close to the south brisbane railway station and south bank attractions

                the hotel is in south bank but it is closer to the south brisbane train station. it only took 20 minutes from the airport by train to the south brisbane station. unfortunately the hotel is a little difficult to find. grey st runs over the top of montigue st so if walking the 5 minutes to the hotel one needs to turn left before hitting the bridge over montigue st and the brisbane river. then take the first left and the hotel is at the end of the small one-way street. there was a queen bed and a single bed in my room,which took up a lot of space but everything else was 4 to 5 star...

                location, rates, breakfast

                the hotel is ideal for us to visit the brisbane festival with south bank a short walk away and the added bonus of free parking. at the end of our day at south bank it was so good not to have to struggle with the traffic or on crowded trains. the room and breakfast package was good value and the poached and scrambled eggs were perfect. the rooms are fuctional,clean and good for business and short breaks but probably not for romance or families.

                Excellent, clean, unassuming hotel with a wonderful breakfast lunch and dinner restaurant at affordable prices located on premises. Very clean, great helpful staff. Only thing to remember is that it is really a 10/15 minute walk to Southbank area, not a bad walk, but still not as close as I thought. Highly recommend to any traveller looking for cheap, clean hotel in Brisbane.

                We live in BNE but wanted a night at South Bank to check out Riverfestival, bars and live entertainment in Southbank so decided to go for a budget option. It was most excellent ! Friendly staff, nice walk into South Bank, comfortable and clean. Very close to Suncorp also if you are in BNE for a game.

                Convenient location and free parking

                Perfect for travellers on a budget that need a hotel that is close to Southbank and the Brisbane CBD. Nothing fancy but the service was good and the buffet breakfast was fresh, well prepared and serviced regularly by the kitchen team. The hotel looks primarily aimed at the business market but is perfect for a base to see the sites of Brisbane

                Very functional hotel for simple business travel. ”

                Central to Conventional Centre and South Brisbane train station. Comfortable bed and room.

                I chose this hotel for my conferene at the Brisbane Convention Centre for its accessibily - 10 mins walk - to the Convention Centre. The South Brisbane train station of the city subway is next to the Convention Centre, making this hotel accessible to central Brisbane, and to the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast directly by express train. The room is large and it's amenities are in good working order and tidily updated. This 4 story hotel has friendly staff at the Reception. The price is reasonable. The rooms facing away from Grey Street are quieter although you have full view of the vey nearby private apartments residents , so draw your balcony drapes! Emergency escape staircases are well marked and kept clear of obstructions. Your car is secured if you drive. You need your room key to open the basement car park shutter door to enter the car park. Then, use the room key to call the lift to go upstairs. If you return to your room past 10 pm, use your room key to open the main corridor glass door to access the corridor to your rooms. The rooms are in two separate blocks, of 4-5 stories each. The sole lift in my block is slow in responding to your call. So, leave early if you have to be punctual foe your appointments.

                Excellent location - a short stroll to all that Southbank has to offer, good food options nearby too. Excellent value for money - you can't find anything at this price point in this area and it's pretty good for the price. Only downsides for us were noise (we were right next to the main entry door and vending machine so constant noise of people coming and going and also the rubbish truck came to empty the dumpsters at 5am on a Saturday morning!!) and cleanliness (although the bathroom was recently updated, the shower was a bit mouldy so I wasn't keen on sitting my 2 year old in there). Overall though a good stay so if you're looking for something cheap and cheerful near Southbank then look no further!

                Good value at the Riverside Hotel in Southbank. Easy to get to in a great location for walking either into the city or around Southbank. Just take care in the shower - floor tiles are slippery.

                me and my partner were attending a boat party on the brisbane river, so it was only walking distance to where we boarded at southbank. Great area for sightseeing & nice resturants near by. The room was nice enough for what we needed as we were not there much, mainly just to sleep. Bed was very compfortable. it also had free parking. overall perfect for price.

                Staff was friendly. Great location walking distance to Southbank & the Brisbane City. Only down side I would have to say is house keeping could be a little considerate. Especially in the mornings. Everytime they would open bedroom doors I believe to top up towels or what ever it maybe, seconds later doors were slamming. Thought that was annoying.

                Within walking distance to Southbank area and Queen St. Mall is just a short walk across the bridge.
                "Kitchenette" was just a kettle and fridge inside a cupboard!

                Close proximity to central Brisbane including Queen St Mall, Southbank area and train station makes it easy and convenient to leave the car in the secured parking of hotel. Hotel was clean and comfortable and featured all necessary amenities, including swimming pool. Staff were friendly and courteous, checking in and out took just a few minutes. Will use this hotel again next time we're in Brisbane!

                Riverside Hotel Southbank had all we expected for 1 night in the city; friendly welcoming staff on arrival, room with all we needed for our brief stay and no fuss checking out in the morning and leaving our luggage until later. Best thing was location - we could walk to everything we wanted to see and do, both across the river and on the Southbank.
