It is unfortunate that a judgement has been made without knowing the facts. I had fallen extremely unwell very suddenly and was not in a position to go into the details of explaining why there was a last-minute cancellation on our part. In spite of my own discomfort, I made sure the guests had alternative accommodation closeby. Now that I... More

Thank you Caroline, Robert and Stephano for being such wonderful hosts. Such a friendly family. Nice and clean place. Every night we came back from our theme parks tired. We felt relaxed just by the looks of the place. Every morning we were spoiled by amazing breakfast. Robert is an amazing chef, I loved the garnishing on the french omlette.... More

I had the pleasure of spending three nights at the Riviera B&B with hosts Caroline and her son Stephano. We stayed in the beautiful Provincial room with a beautiful white four post bed with a luxurious share bathroom. Breakfast was lovingly prepared every morning by our hosts, and was served on the deck. A sumptuous French feast was served up... More

We are overwhelmed by your very generous and thorough review, Tracey. You will be glad to know that this week we install 2 more air-conditioners on the level you stayed. We are so happy for you that it was a memorable visit during that heatwave of a weekend we had here in Qld. Yes, it is special when guests become... More

You really need to have your own transport when staying here. I did research the local bus service but did not have to use it as friends came to collect me each day I stayed . Robert & Caroline (the owners) are wonderful hosts. They make you feel at home. Robert is the head chef, creating wonderful French meals inspired... More

Beautiful location, gorgeous rooms and very welcoming, friendly hosts make this a place I would be happy to recommend and very happy to return to. We were very comfortable in our large, quiet room, our little dog was welcomed and the breakfasts were simple but delicious.

Thank you to both Caroline and Robert for your wonderful hospitality. Chris and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you and the only complaint we both have, it was simply too brief. We hope to be able to come back and spend more time not just on your beautiful property but time with you both. Thank you again from both... More

Imagine relaxing on a lovely veranda of a beautifully restored Queenslander, sipping something delightful while tasty aromas of French cooking are wafting from the kitchen! The hosts, Caroline and Robert, were very helpful and caring. Riviera B&B was most comfortable and quiet. Surrounded by green, their garden and swimming pool are lovely. For birdwatchers, their property is also a delight.... More

Caroline & Robert are the most wonderful hosts. My husband, son and two dogs enjoyed a wonderful Christmas Day at the Riviera B&B. We felt pampered and special. The banquet Robert prepared was most enjoyable. Parfait! We hope to return!

Thank you to Caroline & Robert for a lovely weekend. The weekend breakfast was delicious (complete with visiting birds) and it was lovely to have an evening meal on the back verandah. With both our newborn and pet, we felt very welcomed and had a nice quiet space where both could be accommodated. We would definitely recommend this B&B to... More

We booked a 2 night stay here, as a change from the number of Australias Beaches we had been to on our 2 week holiday. It is out in the Bush, and very quiet; Gilston doesn't have ATMs or a Supermarket. We didn't have a car either, so relied on a Taxi (about 15 mins from Nerang trainstation), £35) and... More

Thank you Chris and Matt for a very kind overall picture of your experience at our B&B recently. I enjoyed those bushland view breakfasts on the deck with you learning about your experiences and thoughts on life's issues. Yes, you chose well in coming for a weekend stay to have been able to enjoy Robert's French Omelette. I was sad... More
