This is a very good property. Recently refurbished to a high standard and with lots of extras such as coffee machines in the rooms. The bar is very good with a good range of drinks and a ambient manner. The restaurant which we only tried for breakfast had a good selection bit was a little on the pricy side for... More

I stayed 4 nights in June 2015, and this hotel is among the most expensive I've stayed at. It was almost $15 for a glass of wine, and $70 a bottle for something that would only cost about $15-20 in the bottle shop. The in-house movies were $15.95, even for the very old ones. The room itself was nice, however... More

Riverview is no luxury hotel but is really is as good as it gets for what you are paying for. Good location close to the river and centrally located to shops and restaurants, just a 5 minute walk to the famous Breakfast Creek Hotel. Riverview seems to have its very own personality and good atmosphere, really good customer focus and... More

A very nice hotel with great views and very friendly staff. For the cost the room amenities are first class with latest technology. the only downside is that the WiFi is complementary but is confusing and cumbersome to use and more importantly very slow. The quality of the food at the Plates restaurant is excellent and highly recommended. The steak... More

Nicely refurbished rooms bit far from CBD and a stones throw from the race tracks. Convenient for my work so I stay here regularly. Recent upgraded rooms. You are better off eating down the road at Breakfast Creek Hotel, the gym and pool aren't great and traffic noise can be a bit load but rooms are nice and great value... More

We stayed at the Riverview overnight after booking a Wotif mystery hotel. Mystery bookings are invariably a pleasant surprise and the Riverviewi lived up to that expectation. The room was spacious, stylish in design and very comfortable. The beds are giving you a good nights sleep. The downside of any Wotif booking is normally you get a room of a... More
