the couple who checked us in were very welcoming & helpful. The rooms are drab & dated. We only had 1 blanket on the bed. On searching we found some old quilts which helped but we were still cold. The air conditioner was very noisy & there were no tissues or shower cap. It was clean.

My husband and I stayed on 23/01/2015 arriving unannounced. Kay gave us a warm welcome. The room was very clean and tidy and we just couldn't believe the low prices of the mini bar. The next morning we were pleasantly surprised to find that the windscreen had been cleaned in preparation for our journey. What a lovely touch and very... More

Recently stayed here as part of a Carnival of Flowers group. Very happy with the accommodation standard as a clean and comfortable motel. Location was fairly good with shopping within a few blocks walking distance. Continental breakfast was great, always ready in our rooms the night before. Kay, the owner, made the experience even better when she would see us... More

I did read past reviews on this place so was interested to see how would I like the accommodation. I was with a tour group of 40 to see the Carnival of Flowers and I must say Kay was so lovely to us all. She greeted us all on the coach and let us know what was expected from her... More

Checked in for a 1 night stay a few weeks ago for business and was greeted by a lady who seemed to judge us after we stated that we'd be eating somewhere else after getting into our seperate rooms. Entering the room it had a very strong smell of carpet cleaning, and the bathroom of bleach. I had to leave... More

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 It is very outdated and for the prices it charges, they should provide a better room.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
