My husband and I stayed overnight at the Riversleigh and were very impressed. Check in was very easy and Rachel was very friendly and helpful. Our room was lovely with a comfortable king size bed and spa in the bathroom. We would highly recommend the Riversleigh

Great place to stay. The bed was extremely comfortable and being in a wheelchair I found everything within easy reach. The bathroom was very spacious and more than suitable, Would love to have spent more time here. We will be back...soon

Very nice hotel, good breakfast. Great tea. Clean and tidy, the room is spacious, and warm in winter time. Robin is very helpful and kind. Definitely recommended. The team provided there is pretty good, and is a new brand.

Heading North from Melbourne, we decided to overnight in Bairnsdale and found this gem! It's in the last stage of a complete make-over by it's owner's and what a find it is.

I recently attended a workshop held at the Riversleigh and stayed overnight, the most spacious room I have ever been lucky enough to find that was so suitable. The bathroom was set out so that everything was easily accessible for my needs as someone travelling alone who uses a wheelchair all of the time. A big plus from my perspective... More
