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

We booked into this hotel as it was close to Cirque De Soleil and the airport, (we were flying from Far Nth Qld). After a 10hr day at work, a 2 hour flight to Brisbane, the surprise began as soon as we walked into the hotel. It was well set out,without the "horrid cold hotel feel" The reception staff could...

We stayed in this property for a night. It is a boutique hotel with a smile welcoming staff... Only things didn't like about property are towel was having a water smell in it. Secondly you need to pay extra money for breakfast... Value for money..,,

Stayed here for 3 nights because of the location and free parking (which is a bonus). Booked through a hotel finder and got a good internet rate. On entering the hotel, the overall appearance first impressions were good but it had a musty, stale smell about the reception area. Our room was OK, but it over looked the race track... More

I was glad we ended up staying there, even though it's not right in the city centre. The views of the river are amazing and the room had a very homely feel.

Stayed here for a short one night visit prior to an early morning airport visit. It is certainly much better value than any of the other airport hotels, and was less than ten minutes drive to the terminal. The hotel markets itself as five stars, and it gets close, but it doesn't have that true luxury feel that real five... More
