Stayed at the Brisbane Riverview Hotel 31 July and was very impressed, nice clean and professional hotel. Liked the added touches that the give the hotel a bit of old-world style. Great location for access to Brisbane airport, which is why we stayed there. Nice breakfast pack, coffes in the morning helped us get away early to meet flights. Dined... More

The highlight of our stay was the absolute friendliness & willingness of all staff we encountered, other than in the breakfast room. The desk staff & the room service staff all appeared to be delighted to help or advise with whatever we needed. Quite a... More

Our room had a view of the river and the room itself was great. Cool decor, not the usual stuff you see in every single other hotel room. Bathroom was beautiful but for the price I was disappointed there was no bath only a shower. The bed is super comfy and sectioned off from the rest of the room which... More

I stayed here for one night for business, the room was fantastic, the hotel is quiet and in a great spot. The gym requires a little attention as some of the equipment didn't work, which was a little disappointing but I ran the local area instead which was extremely challenging due to the hills! I had room service and the... More

We didn't have a river view but had a lovely night sleep in a comfy bed. Love the classy, unique decore. Great bar. Fabulous service. If any complaint, a couple of webs in the corners of ceiling - nothing a quick dust wouldn't fix. Thanks for a comfy stopover.

Had the pleasure of travelling to Brisbane for a surprise 60th of a friend who lives not far from me. She was going up for her family and was totally unaware some of her friends from South Australia were heading up too. This hotel was suggested by one of her daughters because of it's nearness to the Breakfast Creek Hotel,... More

The Riverview is always the hotel of choice for business in Brisbane, just a quick trip in from the airport. The rooms have had a significant makeover during the last few years. Staff are always helpful, & the pillow selection is a highlight!

Just a one night stay on the way back home. Good service, varied breakfast options. Excellent views up and down the river from room 609. Free wifi in room, reasonable minibar prices compared to ordering drinks to room.
