I stay at a lot of basic motels as well as high end hotels and always adjust my expectations according to price. This motel is overpriced for what it offers. My room definitely needed new carpet and a new tv. It is very outdated and for the prices it charges, they should provide a better room. I would not recommend... More

I was happy to stay at the Riviera on Ruthven for a week and received great service from the owners. Clean room, comfy bed and good TV. The mini bar was helpful for entertaining customers and great prices. The only place I have stayed that washes your windscreen each morning. The breakfast was served on time with the toast still...

I'm still feeling ill from my stay. I've stayed in a lot of hotels and am very tolerant. First my husband was stung with a huge surcharge because his company had only booked for him. He requested a microwave to heat our diet food and was refused point blank. The room absolutely stank of cheap fragrance from carpet cleaning -... More

It started out ok, they quoted us one price on the phone then when we got there they said we could have a back room away from the road for extra, they were not busy so they could have just said same price. The breakfast menu was limited and did not have things one It we eat so we went... More

I actually am flabbergasted that I need to write a review. I normally would never take the time but this lady has to learn. I am a regular motel stayer with work and have stayed here before. You would think as a regular customer politeness may be in order. We required 2 or 3 nights accommodation for a few guys... More

I'm a sales rep who stays in motels across the country and this is one of my favourites. Nice modern rooms with clean and tidy bathrooms, comfortable beds and TVs with full foxtel. The room service is also good, with tasty home cooked meals for both breakfast and dinner.

Very well priced and extremely friendly staff. Had to sleep 6 people so the extra fridge was very handy. The final touch was leaving in the morning and finding a sweet note and freshly cleaned windscreen. Would definitely stay here again.

Upon booking over the phone a week prior to staying we were told that we could check in at 12.30 by kay. Upon arrival at the motel at about 12.15 we were told no, check in was 2pm. When asking why we had to wait till 2, when we had been told by kay herself that 12.30 would be fine,... More

Beds are very comfy, didn't get all 22 pay channels. Units don't cater for familys as claimed the only fridge in the unit was a bar fridge and it was full of grog so young party goers would love to stay just not a young family of 5 with a baby. Hard to move around in. Good place to stay... More

While the on site restaurant is under promoted and the offerings are average, this motel is very close to a Thai restaurant, an hotel and City Golf Club dining. There is also easy access to the major takeaways. The mini bar prices are better than many bar prices so hop in. Rooms are well maintained and clean.
