We stayed at the hotel Thursday 13th March. Friendly staff, good location and spacious room. The downside was the air conditioner kept switching back to heat, this made for a very poor nights rest. Hotel staff were aware of the problem but did nothing to let us know when booking into the room. There was no river view and the... More

Stayed last night. I've been here before. Pros: comfortable bed, friendly staff, free parking, spacious room. Cons: other peoples hair on my toweling (pet peeve), expensive breakfast buffet, road noise, tv in gym not working (aargh!)

We stayed for one night on the way back from a big trip. It's in a great location close to the airport. The rooms have been refurbished to a high standard, very clean and well presented.

This hotel is close to the airport and major freeways therefore it is easy to access. The rooms are modern and spacious. The breakfast area was also very good. Ask for a river view room and you won't be disappointed. The hotel is also only walking distance to Breakfast creek Hotel where the food is great.

I stayed at the Riverview for 4 nights on a work assignment. My room had a living room and the bedroom was in a separate room which was nicer than just having a normal hotel room!

Good hotel close to the airport. We stayed here for one night while dropping our son to airport. Great location with places to eat nearby. Room was a good size for 3 and the extra touch of apples in the hallways and lobby was nice. We didn't eat here though so can't rate that. We definitely stay again.

My husband and I stayed here overnight on our way overseas because it's so close to the airport and because our travel agent said that they would look after our car at no charge while we were away. Turned out that was true, but the limit is 2 weeks. We were away for 4. However, the hotel staff honoured the... More
