“Handy to Southbank”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

This hotel is good value and is in a great location. It is very basic and the decor is a bit tired. Also may be very noisy if you are on the side facing the road. The staff were friendly and efficient. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street and also away from the rubbish bin collection site!

As always, a happy and enjoyable stay at the Riverside Hotel. We always stay here when we visit Brisbane and are never disappointed. The rooms, the service, the car parking, the position with its close proximity to South Bank, museums etc.... it all makes us keen for the next time! Well done Riverside.

The Riverside has one of the best locations in Brisbane if you're intending to spend time at Southbank or any of the cultural precinct/West end area. My family and I all stayed in separate rooms, and appreciated having car parks for both vehicles (it meant we could easily take taxis wherever we needed to go which wasn't within walking distance.)
The reception and bar staff were wonderful, nothing was too much trouble, and the rooms were clean and very comfortable. And quite frankly, the price was also unbeatable in comparison to what's charged for other hotels in the same neck of the woods.
Thanks for a great stay, we'll be back.

Great little hotel. A bit tricky to drive to as gps wasnt working great. But good service and clean rooms with carparking. Awesome value. We stayed 2 nights $16 cab to the valley hotspots to party and an easy walk to southbank even
in heels :). Ask for higher levels if you want views. We were in old part on 2nd level and could see the lights.

I have stayed at this hotel several times because the accommodation and meals are at reasonable prices compared to CBD prices and it is a 5 to 10 minute walk over the Kurilpa Bridge to the CBD. We took advantage of the good value meal "specials".

I appreciated the fact that my wife was able to stay in the room at no extra cost and that I could leave my car in the carpark for the day of my check-out, since I still had business to attend to for the whole day.

It was a pleasant surprise to be upgraded to a suite rather than the single room that I had booked and that also gave us more space when our daughter visited.

A small annoyance was the shower rose, which was quite low and I could not adjust it upwards since it was fastened tightly. My wife prefers having the shower rose on a flexible hose that can be lifted off a mounting hook. I also noticed that the thick painted coating in the bathroom was peeling and needs maintenance attention.

Staff were all friendly, efficient and helpful and the service was fine.

Room Tip: The hotel is adjacent to the Grey Street Bridge but there is no significant noise from road traffic...

We stayed here for two nights recently. The location was perfect for us as we were there to attend the ballet at QPAC. Just a short walk to the arts precinct and also over Victoria Bridge to the city. Very convenient. We had a room on the 3rd floor with a view over the city. You get the noise from the traffic, but that's all part of being in a city and didn't bother us. The room was basic but clean and was all we were after. Had a little balcony as well. We arrived late as our plane was delayed ,and were checked in by a very affable night manager. We knew to use the phone to the left of the door to contact him. It would be helpful if they put some instructions as to what number to dial. I just picked up the phone and got nothing. Took a guess and dialled 9 and then got some options. He directed us to the free car parking down below, but it turned out it was full. We came back up and he managed to find us one remaining spot outside the hotel. Buffet breakfast was $15 if booked at check in, which we did. It was good value, although he told us it was 7am - 9am and actually on weekends it is 7am to 10am, so we could have slept in a bit longer! The lifts are very slow. I would probably stay here again, particularly for the location and if I could get a room on the top floor. The beds were very comfortable.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floor so you get a city view. Otherwise you would end up with a view of th...

I stayed in Brisbane overnight for a Jordan Belfort seminar. The hotel was a little out of the way but they where half the price of other hotels in the area and the facilities looked ok. The staff where friendly and courteous. The TV was not working in the room though the staff managed to fix it outside of standard business hours. There was some traffic noise in the lane way through the night but otherwise the bedding was comfortable enough. The room was well presented.
I ate breakfast in the restaurant the following morning. The selection of food was good my only complaint was the eggs where raw. I did not have time to see if they had a gym or pool ect or how they where presented. Overall for a short stay of a night or 2 I would not hesitate to book there again.
