Small rooms, dated and noisy because close to road I was in Room 14 which was clean and tidy but adjoined 15 with a very thin door. A very Very thin door! Your are better off paying a bit more somewhere ese if you can afford it.

I was just looking to stay the night in Brisbane so I could have a few drinks at a function nearby. Knowing I wasn't going to spend much time there apart from sleeping I opted for a cheaper choice. The Motel is very dated and tired but the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Everything I needed on... More

Stayed one night to visit friends in Brisbane. Had a large room on the ground floor. Whilst the room was somewhat tired and in need of a make-over we could not fault it - it was very clean and comfortable. Thought we might here some road noise but we didn't. Off street parking. Proximity to Brett's Wharf is a real... More

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
