I stayed here for one night, upon check in there seemed to be a little confusion. I was asked if I had got the right motel to which I replied I definitely had as I received a phone call the previous day from the motel asking when I would be arriving. This was then quickly rectified and I was given... More

This is the third time I have stayed at the Riverview and this lap I stayed for 5 nights at the start of the break and for the last night before jetting back o/seas. I stay because of the location, close to (within walking distance) public transport (ferry, bus and train), eats and drinks (Racecourse Rd has plenty), medical services,... More

This motel was great for close proximity to Bretts Wharf - only a 1 min walk to wharf to catch the Citycat into the city or out. Also, the bed was comfy and modern compared to the rest of the room. However there was in-fighting with staff which led to much confusion and problems with the booking. I specifically asked... More

Our family of 5 stayed here the night before we were due to fly out of Brisbane to Singapore to avoid the stress of the early morning drive in traffic from Gold Coast to Brisbane. We chose the Riverview Motel for three main reasons - 1. They accommodated all 5 of us in one room. 2. They are so very... More

We had a short three-night stay in Brisbane and booked this as it is close to Racecourse Rd and the airport. The location is fantastic. It is very basic but well run and clean. They were most helpful when I requested a bit of extra cutlery and a microwave as I was eating at home in the evenings. The Hamilton... More

Stayed here due to close proximity to the Cruise Terminal at Portside. Such a convenient location a short walk from the river and city Cat terminal, Racecourse Road and the Hamilton Hotel, great for dinners. Excellent value for money considering it is in such an expensive residential area of Brisbane. Clean motel style rooms and friendly adequate service from the... More

What a great find in one of the cities most affluent areas, and very affordable. Older style building well maintained near the Brisbane River and ferry terminal access. Rooms look like they were refurbished a year or two ago and offer inexpensive clean accommodation. Came in to see a friend off at the Cruise Terminal nearby. Friendly staff offering enough... More

Booked in here by accident by a family member. What a horrible motel. The outside was shabby and the inside worse. Very basic and flimsy. Road noise bad and just across the road from a hotel carpark. Lots of noise late at night from that. The room we had was not even a proper motel unit and didn't have a... More

First impressions were that it looked a little run down but they kindly let me check in early (I'd just arrived from London), which improved my impressions instantly. The room was fine, tea and coffee provided and the two main things I judge a room by the shower and the bed could not be faulted. A short walk to racecouse... More

This is handy between Brisbane city and the international airport, but why else would you stay there? There are many other hotels in the area, costing the same or more, and this one is clean and comfortable. They coped very well with our very late check-in and late check-out.
