We had a two night stay in this lovely hotel. Our room was very comfortable with very good amenities, including a Nespresso coffee machine and a better than average selection of teas. There were lovely thick towels in the bathroom and a great variety of high end toiletries. The bed was very comfortable. We had a room on the first... More

This is just a beautiful place to stay & a great venue to host a small function. A continental breakfast is served in a beautiful room & the motel rooms are large & extremely comfortable. The manager, Robin is lovely & she & her team were extremely helpful. The food served to our guests was delicious.

Lovely furnishings in a good sized room. The heater and lights were put on by the friendly Hostess upon entering the room. A big, cold bathroom with little furnishing. The door remained open all night.

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

We stayed here for one night and were pleasantly surprised. The Riversleigh is a beautifully restored old home. The room we had was on the ground floor and was spacious with a great bed. The temperature had dropped outside but the room was warm and comfortable. They provided a good breakfast and the staff were friendly and helpful. If I... More
