Excellent motel, well located in a quiet position with all the facilities you require. Nice breakfast. Family run property. Close to local restaurants and the RSL club. A good choice for travellers driving between Brisbane and Sydney

Brisbane friends recommended we stopover here and we were lucky to take the last room booking. Very comfortable rooms with everything one could need. We had a back room but the side windows had a view to the water. Fantastic hot breakfast included in the room rate. We may have had a family room as there were bunk beds as... More

We booked at Riverview Lodge for an overnight R&R on a challenging drive bringing a Jaguar engine on a trailer from Sydney to country Queensland in lashing rain. For every reason, we are so glad we made the diversion into this charming little spot, Nambucca Heads. It has not been monstered like Byron and is still quiet, natural, and old... More

Spent only one night but would return when in area. Located away from main streets, but only a few seconds drive, this motel has excellent views of the river and surf. Some restaurants are nearby, otherwise a steep walk, or short drive, will take you to the small shopping area. David and Bozena are excellent hosts. They greeted me in... More

We booked at the Riverview for an overnight stop on the drive from Sydney to Brisbane and were glad we did. Nambucca Heads, like may coastal towns is now by-passed and you have to leave the highway to get to this quiet, pleasant location. The rooms are a good size and have a small balcony where you can sit and... More

We stay here on a regular basis as it is close to half way when driving from Brisbane to Sydney. The building has some history and has been well restored while keeping its character.

This is a wonderfully peaceful historic hotel close to the river at Nambucca. Impeccably run by David and Bebe, it has the good fortune to be close to three good restaurants, of which we tried two - very happy on both occasions. We had a family room, as we were travelling with my teenage son, and it was big enough... More
