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.

We wanted something with a little character and away from the busy highway and we found it! Riversleigh is a unique old mansion close to the beautiful Mitchell River and the shopping centre of Bairnsdale. It is a gracious old building with old world charm and modern facilities. Ore room was cosy with an understated elegance and the beds comfortable.... More

On Sat 11/4/15, 100 friends and family shared my 60th celebration at what was a perfect day. The venue was perfect for my needs; private, lots of space and being a heritage home, made it extra special. The staff provided an efficient but friendly service and the 'Feasting on your Feet' with a variety of gourmet foods was fantastic. Feedback... More

Not sure if it's because our stay at the Riversleigh came after camping on The Prom for a few nights, but we have been taken by the luxurious sized rooms, beautiful yet simple furnishings and excellent service. We were given an upgrade to king option when we arrived and we took the option- the room was fantastic. Good continental breakfast,... More

Had not pre-booked but was taken with the description provided by the local visitor centre who couldn't do enough to help and made the reservation on our behalf. On reception we were warmly greeted and shown our to our room by... More

Enjoyed this lovely old old establilishment, room was clean, spacious and had everything we needed for an overnight stay. Check in was easy. Breakfast (continental) was nicely presented in the pleasant surrounds. Would recommend.

We arrived too late to check in but a lovely note with instructions was pinned up for us. The room or should I say rooms as there was a bedroom and separate kitchen and lounge room, beautifully decorated - but just lacking in some pictures on the walls, but the owners are still renovating I am sure pictures will appear....

We stayed without a prior reservation on a Sunday. The gentleman at reception was extremely helpful but was misinformed about the River Grill opening hours. The room on the ground floor was comfortable and convenient. The bed was incredibly comfortable. There was an ambience to Riversleigh which is becoming harder to find. The bar, lounge facilities and breakfast included was... More
