Lovely venue. Was disappointed the groom and groomsmen missed out on champagne for the speeches, and we were missing a dance floor, other than that everything else was great. All the food was lovely and guests commented they enjoyed the meal.

What can I say except but this venue is the best we have ever been to! And we are not being biased. Kelsie smith is in charge and her dedication and service was exceptional. I cannot thank her enough. All the staff on the night were awesome too.

Great place to get ready with super friendly staff - just be careful when trying to get wedding cars out of valet.. they can get backed up a little

24 May 2013

Our venue was held on the top floor of Rydges Southbank Brisbane. It was beautifully decorated just as we wanted. The food was excellent quality and the decorations were just as we ordered. A very well run and amazing venue for any wedding. I would definitely recommend Rydges Southbank in Brisbane.

All of our wedding guests including ourselves were from out of state so we all stayed at Rydges Southbank Brisbane. The price was very reasonable and the staff and rooms were amazing!

23 Jun 2012

Difficult in the lead up but was amazing on the Night. We booked our wedding and in 6 months had 3 different people handle us. Things in the paperwork weren't explained properly or we were told different things by different people. We got passed around alot.
