Now i work in customer experience and ive stayed in many hotels so im the most critical person when it comes to where i stay. But its clear the people... More

Wow, this is an awesome completely renovated hotel, right on the Brisbane River a block away from the iconic Breakfast Creek Hotel. Our room is fantastic and worthy of a 5 star rating, service all round is again excellent. The front desk, to the concierge and Restaraunt staff are all warm, friendly and ready to help. The rates were equivalent... More

The hotel has recently been refurbished to a high standard. My room overlooked the river and my bathroom had a spa bath with shower. The room was large with a couch and small dining area. Nice touches included high quality tea selection and a coffee pod machine. The staff were all friendly and eager to please. Even housekeeping were unruffled... More

The Brisbane you hotel was the final night of our stay in Queensland as we were flying back to New Zealand following morning. Experience got off to a really good start with the friendly, courteous and "nothing is too much trouble" attitude of the staff. They really made us feel welcome. The room was spotlessly clean and very tastefully finished,... More

On arrival, the staff are very pleasant and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. Rooms are very comfortably appointed with plenty of space to relax in. The bathroom is also spacious and spotlessly clean. The coffee pod machine is a nice touch. I was not bothered by any noise from outside the hotel. All in all, a most comfortable stay!

Recently my wife and I stayed in the riverview as a weekend get away to see a concert. Such a prime location overlooking the brisbane river and situated for easy access off Kingsford smith drive. From the foyer to the resturant, the hallways and rooms, the quality and detail of the hotel is second to none with no stone left... More

The hotel is very nice across the river the main attraction. It was a big room it has extra sitting as well as a chair for the desk. Extra power points which was handy. I had a view to the side and could see the river and the race course track. I was there for a seminar which as a... More

Stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. Rooms are well laid out, functional and clean. Hotel is quaint and the staff friendly. I had a room on the 6th floor overlooking the river, which is a fantastic view. Unfortunately the room also overlooks Kingsford Smith Drive which is very busy, and without double glazing or some form of noise blocker... More

I have stayed here previously (before the renovations) and always found it friendly and welcoming, but this was my first time post-renovations. It was everything that it has always been (wonderful staff who make a home away from home environment) but the rooms are now beautiful. They layout of them is very nice, but they don't have the fake shine... More
