The room was lovely, and the attention to detail was excellent. Breakfast was adequate. It poured with rain when we stayed and there was obviously a drainage problem as guests had to wade out in bare feet carrying their luggage aloft to their cars. Must be fixed!

We stayed here overnight and found this hotel on Tripadvisor. It was excellent value, with personable country service. The bed was heaven, linens and towels luxurious and we slept very soundly. There is no lift to the second floor rooms so lugging suitcases is a bit unpleasant up stairs and slamming doors by those in neighbouring rooms was a bit... More

We didn't expect to stay in Bairnsdale and certainly did not expect to stay at this accommodation. We are so pleased we did. This glorious old residence is now a proud (may I say) boutique place to stay, with delightful bedrooms, great bathroom (if a little sparse) and the Nespresso coffee maker in the room. Downstairs is the bar that... More

We were very taken with this beautifully restored old hotel, its antique but fresh decor, exceptionally alert and helpful staff and excellent bar. A BnB just doesn't come better than this if you want atmosphere and style.

Robin who greated us on arrival was pleasant, helpful and informative. She continued her standard the next morning at breakfast. This building dates from the late 1800s and... More

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

We arrived late afternoon after booking a queen room on a last minute site for a very reasonable price. Upon arrival reception was very friendly and helpful to my wife. After parking the car I walked into reception and we were upgraded to an amazing king room (I don't know if the fact I'm 194cm tall had anything to do... More

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
