I really like this hotel and keep going back whenever I'm in Brisbane. The rooms and bathrooms are beautiful. Super comfy beds and lovely large white towels. I love the soft furnishings throughout the place and quirky artworks. Noise is not an issue so don't be put off by its location - I've stayed both sides of the hotel. Excellent... More

We stayed 2 nights on a recent trip to Brisbane. This is our 2nd visit and we do like this hotel. We had a room on the top floor with views overlooking the Albion Park raceway. The room was clean, modern bathroom and nicely furnished. We enjoyed a glass of wine in the bar on the Friday night and had... More

We have stayed at the Brisbane Riverview Hotel twice in the last 6 months, and both times have been exceptional. Rooms facing straight onto the main road and Brisbane River are whisper quiet. The beds are luxuriously comfortable. We loved all the little quirky pictures, light fixtures and finishing touches. Room service is lightening fast. The breakfast buffet is incredible,... More

The room, location and staff were good. Close to the city, close to public transport (bus or ferry). Restaurant was poor, it was overpriced pub food on a big plate, (pizza etc.), you should eat out. One other problem with my room was that it had a spa bath. Unfortunately there were no handles so getting in and out of... More

We had a one night stay for my husband's birthday. Lovely room on the third floor with a river view. Really nice décor with everything you need. Service was very good also. We did not dine here but it is very close to other dining venues such as the Breakfast Creek Hotel. The Citycat is not too far away to... More

I stayed here on business for two nights and really enjoyed the experience. Firstly, the car park was free and convenient. Inside, the lobby has loads of character and very well dressed staff. Service was very polite, professional and helpful. The room is a great size, coffee machine on hand and a nice large window to take in the views.... More

I normally choose to stay in apartments when travelling. However on this trip the usual places I stay at were booked so choose a hotel instead. What a treat.

Was totally surprised in a good way when we turned up to this hotel. Price very reasonable, great value. Undercover parking and lift up to room. There is a bar and restaurant which we did not have time to use but looked very comfortable. Room lovely. The only thing I did not like was no free wifi, most hotels I... More

Could not have asked for a more relaxing environment for a nice weekend away. Food is magnificent, staff are wonderful. Rooms tastefully decorated with the refurbishment. We stayed at the side of the hotel on level 3 and it was wonderful and quiet with views of the city :-) definitely will be returning.
