Lovely peaceful night spent here with the family. Wished we could have stayed longer. Gracious setting and attentive host. Simple but tasty continental breakfast. Big comfortable beds and immaculately clean rooms. Nespresso in room a welcome touch.

The boutique hotel in Bairnsdale is a real find. It has character, exceedingly pleasant staff, and old-style atmosphere. Comfortable room, great breakfast and ready-to-please at all times. I'll be back!

Stayed at the Riversleigh recently, and the room was lovely, the staff had turned on the heater in the room so it was divine when we arrived. The bed was like floating on a cloud, one of the best beds I've ever slept on. AND Breakfast in the morning was also very good, muesli, yogurt, toast, crumpets, cereals, juice, tea... More

Lovely to imagine a bygone era. Rooms are are very tasteful and well equipped with everything to make your stay enjoyable and relaxing. There is a beautiful walk which begins just near the hotel and gives lovely views of the River. The surrounds at the hotel are very pretty as well.

We stopped at the Riversleigh for one night on a recent trip. The room was very nicely appointed and comfortable. By chance we stayed on a Friday and they were doing a tapas/wine bar night. Both the food and wine were great. Breakfast was continental but there was plenty to eat. Staff were very pleasant and it all made for... More

Really nice renovation job. Very clean, uber quiet, and quality furnishings - including a very comfortable bed. Reception staff member was very helpful and welcoming. Will definitely keep this place in mind for potential future stopovers en route Sydney-Melbourne.
