My mum won a trip to this venue through a third party promotions company. My mum and I called shortly after winning and spoke to a Ken (Manager/Owner at Riverside) to arrange for the stay. When we both spoke to Ken he confirmed the prize but we couldn't book until later in the year so called back several months later.... More

Hi Michael I see you stayed at this property in April 2014. As of December 2014, we are the new owners/managers of the property. I'm sorry about your experience but I won't comment on previous management beyond that. I can only say that we aim to be very customer conscious and hope to provide guests with a positive experience. We... More

My partner surprised booked us a few nights away, if I had have done it I wouldn't have stayed As I always check the reviews on here and they are all pretty bad reviews from others. Our stay - cabin 3 next to the pool. Cabin was small but Was very clean and all brand new. Our shower was amazing... More

My three primary school aged children and myself had a weekend of beach bliss and we stayed at Riverside Oceangrove. The kids loved the motel pool and we enjoyed having an outside table just outside the back door where I could relax, but still watch the kids play in the pool. The beds were clean and comfortable, we were happy... More

Stayed here for a weekend in one of the motel style rooms. Was very modern and spacious and had a well supplied kitchen area so we could prepare our own breakfasts. The bathroom was again very modern with an excellent shower. Beds very comfortable and overall the room was spotless. Would definitely recommend for a short stay- was very clean,... More

Very disappointed in this place. The pictures are deceiving. We presumed we were staying in a new cabin, but instead it was a very older motel room. I had four children with me and besides the pool ( which was supposed to be heated, was freezing) there was no where for them to play outside. A small area of lawn,... More

We stayed here 2 nights for a family function in Ocean Grove. Room was very clean and spacious with a separate mini-kitchen. Quiet with off street parking, pleasant ground level room with verandah overlooking the pool. The lady rang me on our way there to tell us the room number and gave directions saying the key would be in the... More

My partner went to a lot of effort to suprise me with a night out, locally, with a spa etc. We checked in at 6 and then at about 8.30pm a baby next door started crying and cried for about 1.5hrs. The walls are quite thin and it was wrecking our 'romantic' (not that we blamed the baby at all)...so... More

My partner booked a room at last minute for that same night as she needed to be at a late meeting in the area. Enroute from Melbourne she realized that the hotel was an hour away from the meeting place. With a small baby needing to be feed and bathed and put to bed, logistically this was not going to...

This should really be a 3 1/2 star review, but, as we can't do halves, I decided that it would be fairer to round it UP, rather than DOWN. We had stayed at the Riverside a few years ago and enjoyed it, so decided to return to it when we revisited Ocean Grove. Our superior room was large, clean and... More
