We had a great midweek deal. It was peaceful and we could enjoy all the amenities and activities easily. Camping area looked lovely. But the whole site would be horrendous on a busy weekend. Rooms were ok - a little jaded but fine, especially considering what we paid. However the evening gourmet meal was very poor.

Just returned from a long weekend at Riverwood Downs Camping with our fur baby. This is one of the best places I have seen for a holiday with your dog but if you don't want to sacrifice your creature comforts for your pets holiday I would pick another place to stay. The camping sites were very crowded and with only... More

The location is nice, although a bit hard to find, 11km down a gravel road. The nearby creek is definitely fun for kids (bring inflatables!) and the place is great for dogs too. The 'resort' appears run down and is unable to live up to the 4 star aspiration set by its owners. Part hotel, part camping ground, the decor... More

We had a great time a Riverwood downs with the dogs. It is a great place to relax and camp. What I would make sure of next time is that we are not camping amounts families with Toddlers. If receptions see that there are two adults and two dogs and there is room on other sites we should be given... More

After a busy week at work, my partner and I decided to arrange a last minute get away, and came across Riverwood Downs Mountain Valley Resort, we were able to make a late booking, at a very reasonable rate :) our stay here was just what we needed. Although I wouldn't quite rate the resort as a four star, in... More

First time here, went with friends and camped, good facilities, restraunt was great, nice gift shop, decent prices for the food. My only complaint would be the staff really were not that friendly, never smiled and everything seemed to be an effort for them to do. Great for kids and dogs, good swimming hole, nice walks, we will definitly be... More

We stayed at Riverwood Downs to give our dog a holiday as it one of the few 4 star rated resorts that is pet friendly. However I think they must have bought the 4th star. The resort (if you can call it that) was very run down. The area around the main office, was quite nice, but only about 100... More

Needing dog friendly accommodation for one night, we visited in January 2015 and stayed in a resort room. While 'resort' is certainly a stretch, the room was basic but clean, equivalent to a decent 3.5-4 star highway hotel. What made the resort better was lovely serene environment and plenty of rooms for dogs to run. Service slow and prices expensive,... More

We travelled to Riverwood Downs for a family weekend and stayed in 3 of the Family Resort Rooms. We did feel the 4 star rating for the rooms was a little high and would say they are closer to a 3 star rating but the rooms were clean and comfortable with adequate space for 2 adults and 2 children.

This is a lovely quiet location and we have stayed twice before. We booked a spa room with breakfast for two nights for $189 per night. Room was adequate although I felt the 4 star rating that it is advertised as was a bit too high. The breakfast was in the restaurant was a little on the stingy side as... More
