Conveniently located near a great restaurant and a short walk from the shops. Bathrooms were very clean and modern. Great staff, very accommodating and well maintained! 10/10. Would highly recommend for short stays or business trips.

Stayed at Riviera on Ruthven this weekend just gone. I chose it because of the friendly voice of Kay when I first rang to enquire. Our unit was perfect for the two of us, room to move, clean and comfortable with several toiletries on tap; wi fi and a large TV screen. A breakfast menu is available to order if... More

Recently stayed at Riveria on Ruthven and I was absolutely disgusted by the state of cleanliness of the rooms. Not only are they old and decrepit but our room still had the previous occupants hair in the bathroom! Disgusting! The rooms are literally the size of a shoe box, beds are gard as stone, bad layout. All for obsurd prices!!... More

We were passing through Toowoomba and decided to stay spur of the moment, we had a trailer on our car and Kay could not have been more helpful with accommodating us, trailer and all. She happily provided helpful advice on where to eat and what to see. When we left in the morning our windscreen had even been cleaned which... More

We are regular visitors to Toowoomba and have stayed in many motels, but this is by far the best we have stayed in. Have stayed here three times in the last few months and is very good value for money. As always a perfect trip away and the friendly services are wonderful. We love the feeling of home when away,...

Rooms are nothing like the website. Rooms are dated, small and smell like cleaning products. Owners are rude and unreasonable. They would charge you for every breath you take if they could. Extremely overpriced for the quality and the service. Stay elsewhere if you can!

the air conditioning was extremely noisy, and too small, when the room was cleaned on for the second night, the table was so sticky you could not put anything on it, the rooms very small, bathroom cramped.

I used to stay here when the old owners had it. They were incredible, personable people who became like family along my weekly stays in toowoomba. Sadly they sold it to this bunch of meanies and upon my very first stay under the new ownership I was insulted beyond belief. I'm a hairdresser and hairdressing sales rep - I carry... More

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
