Two days of blissful peace. Beautiful bird life, Beautiful scenery, Delightful river & wonderful bush walks. Food although a little expensive was delicious and worth it. Room nice but bathroom far too small

This was the perfect spot to host the first Horizons Unlimited in NSW Plenty of choices for accommodation with the pool to cool off on a hot day. The food was good and Mary was the perfect waitress, She was very helpful and courteous, with a great sense of humor. I would definitely love to come back soon.

We have just had a wonderful weekend, staying in the bunkhouse at Riverwood Downs. The rooms are very small, with four bunks in each, but at $35 a night for a room, you can afford to have just one or two people in them. They are air conditioned, which was a blessing, as we were there during a very hot... More

The main reason we selected Riverwood Downs was so Australia's two most spoilt dogs could get out in the country. More about them later. We stayed in Riverside Spa Cabin 3 and enjoyed ourselves a lot. The Cabin was as advertised and although basic had everything you would need and was clean and tidy. I could add a whole lot... More

I am writing the belated review because I am visiting Riverwood Downs again and noted that Trip Advisor had a listing which allowed me to show my appreciation for the great weekend they arranged for our group 2 years ago when arranging the 30 year anniversary of the BMW GS Motorcycle at RD .

On holiday from Scotland decided to try Riverwood Downs, we were in a cabin which is probably just over 10 years old so has seen a fair bit of service. That said it was clean and comfortable and had everything in it that you would need. We tried the on-site restaurant on 2 of the nights we were there and... More

We had booked and paid for a 2 night stay through Groupon but only stayed for one night due to the following reasons. The "boutique"accommodation was 1970s decor and facilities- very cramped, dark and unpleasant to stay in. The service from the office to bar and restaurant was substandard. We always felt as though we were interrupting them. We had... More
