Lovely homely feel to this place. The rooms were clean & comfy. The owners Sharon & Darrin were friendly & welcoming. Parking was easy, and the option of breakfast in our room (on the balcony) was a nice touch as we were able to sit in sunshine & enjoy the local wildlife. Would definitely recommend.

Booked via 'booking.com', an excellent place to stay. Good room with river/sea view, comfy bed, nice breakfast included. Several places to eat close by, personally I'd recommend the V-Wall pub (have the seafood basket and a dozen oysters ... enough for two).

Location is excellent, close to the water. We stayed in a riverview suite and particularly enjoyed the beautiful view from our own private balcony. The room is clean and comfortable. The hosts are very kind and friendly. The breakfast and lunch they cooked for us were delicious. We had a wonderful time there and will surely come back next time.

We used this lovely B&B as our overnight stop driving from Sydney to Brisbane. The bedroom was excellent with a recently refurbished bathroom and the breakfast was good too. The owner, Sharon was very welcoming and friendly, making it a nice overall stay.

Thank you for rating your overnight stay so highly. At The Riverview Boutique Motel we offer our guests a complimentary breakfast like a B&B however we are more a motel in that our rooms have their own bathroom, balcony, Foxtel TV, bar fridge, microwave and electric kettle. The best of both types of accommodation. It is great to hear you... More

This is an 1880's era hotel with obvious history. It has been nicely updated with modern bathrooms, ceiling fans, air conditioning and balconies. The WiFi needs work but I know they tried to get new equipment while I was there. They serve meals and I had both my dinner and breakfast served on my balcony and I was very pleased... More

Comfortable, if a little tired, bedroom with a balcony with a view. Enjoyable cooked breakfast although similar to other reviewers found the dining room rather cold. Location good, adjacent to a fantastic restaurant-Matilda's -recommended by the owners. Great for a short stopover but not sure I would have wanted to stay longer....wifi intermittent.
