We stayed at the Rydges for the one night, and it suited us down to the ground, we were at a festival at the showgrounds so wanted something local, it's at the top of the street where there are loads of restaurants, no need to go anywhere else if not needed. We had the breakfast

We weren't staying at the hotel but chose to go for the Buffet breakfast. It is a basic breakfast in comparison to many others I have had. But reasonably priced. Limited choice. But what we ate was ok. We are Australian but noticed hardly any choices that other nationalities

We stayed for a long weekend and wanted to be near Fortitude Valley / Newstead area. It is in the new “King Street” precinct on border of Bowen Hills so short walk to heart of Fortitude Valley or Newstead. It’s right next to the Tivoli, which suited us. Also next to Brisbane

Good Evening, The hotel does not offer a shuttle service from the airport, however, there is a company called Con-X-ions that offers this service. The other option is the air train which stops at Fortitude Valley Station, approximately 10mins walk from the hotel. Kind regards, Zoe Harrison Front Office Manager

Is there a laundromat close by as I will be travelling around Oz and Bris, is in the middle of my tour?
Hi There I am not sure - I think they have a laundry service at the hotel. If you are staying at the hotel ask one of their receptions staff - I am sure they would be only too willing to help out.

Is this hotel in walking distance to night life?
There are plenty of options in close walking distance. I guess it depends on how far you are happy to walk. I walked to Brunswick St comfortably and there are plenty of choices.

Also, I don't think early check in will be a problem unless they're unusually busy. If that's the case just wait in the Paddock bar on site or one of the eateries or coffee shops along King St. They'll look after your luggage.

Not necessarily. Certainly you will need to check with the hotel but, depending on how busy they are, they might allow it. At least you will be able to leave your luggage there. Then you could enjoy a quiet stroll around the Botanical gardens. Or get on one of the City Cats and take a trip down the Brisbane river

"Higher floors give you a decent view over the city."
"Rooms on second floor might be subject to a bit more noise disturbance from the fitness centre on this floor."
"room 525 very quiet."
"Was in room 301 which overlooks the main ring at the showground so would be good if staying there over the Ekka period."
"If you want quietness, go for a top floor room, away from the German beer garten area."
