We travelled across from WA for the John Williamson concert and chose this accommodation based purely on it's proximity and convenience. To remain true to this review, I will firstly mention that this accommodation is a "homely, clean, under-stated abode". Though it is a traditional Queenslander with the original part of the home over 100 years old, I compare it... More

We had a wonderfull experience at the Riviera B&B. The whole family enjoyed the un-matched family style hospitality, the fantastic scenary of the many wild birds on the balcony and the great french country-style food. I am sure the boys will remember the crepes breakfast with homemade jams, syrups and whipped cream! If you're looking for something posh with a... More

this b&b is close enough to the coast and is far enough if you want a bit of peace and quiet in a lush setting the B&B is set on 7 acres of bushland with plenty of bird life and other critters Caroline and Robert made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived ,the rooms and amenities are first...

Thanks so much Maurice and Kristine for your positive input...being French, you have a good appreciation of what is truly authentically French so it was great to have your encouraging review. We did so enjoy chatting away in French and having you share insights that make table conversation very enlightening! We look forward to having you stay again! More

Our decision was made from reading the glowing reviews. We found the accommodation to be average. Far enough away from restaurants to make it almost impossible to find one. Admittedly the area is attractive and peaceful and that was the only plus. The meal provided by the owner/chef was expensive and once again very average. Sorry, we booked two nights... More

Thank you Marian for your comments. I am sorry you were disappointed to the point of writing such a review. It is true that each one has his/her own expectations based largely on what is written by other guests' experiences. Admittedly, most reviews are written either by 2-night+ guests, or return guests. We are sorry that you found the meals... More

This beaut place not far from everything on the Gold Coast, was a delight in every way, from its charming style and hosts, down to its idyllic setting. If you want laze on wide verandahs or linger over a leisurely breakfast complete with home made jam, in peaceful surroundings, then try this place.

Thank you for taking the time to express your appreciation of our little paradise of a B&B. Your review certainly gives a great overview of what to expect and we are thankful for your positive input into making our B&B an attractive alternative to the glitz of the gold coast itself. Yes, those home-made jams, lovingly made, are a delicious... More

I've stayed with Caroline and Robert twice now, once in 2013 and again in 2014. The first time I was recuperating by myself from a life-threatening accident and needed peace, quiet and a little sympathy. The second time was a much livelier affair where I brought a number of family members for a get-together for a few days. I'll be... More

Thank you Alistair for your very generous review which will be hard to live up to long-term! Very kind of you to describe so many aspects of our B&B in such detail and with such insight.

My son and I enjoyed a most relaxing stay stay here in the lush Gold Coast Hinterland. It was quiet with good food and service. It is a sub tropical tranquil oasis full of native flora and fauna and handy to everything. Thank you, Caroline & Robert for making us feel so welcome.

My husband had pre-booked our accommodation (see separate review & response) and the owner called and cancelled on us just before we were due to arrive despite numerous re-confirmations. In her response to my husband she stated that she was ill but we happened to be on the balcony of our replacement accommodation when she drove up and we heard... More

It is surprising to read this second negative review, again with untruths....firstly, I have verified my email record and note that the 'numerous re-confirmations' amounted to 1....the day before arrival, the guest confirmed their stay. Other communication - 2 times only - consisted of requesting the booking and requesting payment details. Suspicions/assumptions can be dangerous as they are not founded... More

Invigorating sub-tropical rainforest environment, friendly Australian native birds, combined with scrumptious cooking by our host, a Frenchman, all delivered by our hostess in a thoughtful, courteous and hospitable manner made for a wonderful stay recently!
