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

Very traditional hotel within a ten minute taxi fare into the heart of Brisbane. Convenient for the North shore show grounds and the iconic Breakfast Creek Hotel. Room very clean with good amenities. Booked garden view room and was given river view. Free under ground car parking which was a bonus. Staff friendly and helpful. A good place for a... 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. I loved the little extra touches like the coffee pod machine with good quality coffee, complete with very nice biscuits and the bowls of fresh apples near the... More

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

Have stayed here 2 years in a row for conferences. The rooms are well equipped, spacious and comfortable. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone looking to stay for either business or personal reasons. The only negative was the buffet breakfast. It tasted like it had been there for many hours, and... More

We stayed three nights and avoided the usual city based hotels and wanted a value for money one and chose the Brisbane Riverview. It is a great hotel, location is a bit distant from the city but on public transport routes and has free parking if you have a car. What we loves about the place was the fabulous breakfast... More

We recently stayed at this hotel due to its close proximity to the airport. We received a very good rate for a standard room. The room was reasonably sized and renovated. Although it was a standard room we were on the corner so had great views down the Brisbane river. We didn't try the restaurant but did have a drink... More

We chose the Riverview due to its proximity to the airport (just 20 minutes) and pleasant river-front location. We were not let down by our decision - it's slightly out of town, but close enough to enable a quick trip in by car or catamaran water bus service. We got a Christmas special rate and were blown away by the... More
