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

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.

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

The bathroom was nice and the room was nicely decorated. Breakfast was a simple continental one but there was plenty to eat. The location is good,... More

A great location in the centre of town (still quiet). A lovely restored grand old building. It has a bar and breakfast area. Our room was huge with a modern bed. No bath, but quite a nice bathroom. Tons of room and quite stylish and luxurious. Tea and pod coffee facilities in the room. No Foxtel TV Fancy restaurant right... More
