Beds were good. Room was ok but had some downsides: 1. No fan in bathroom 2. Aircond air outlet was broken so it didn't project into the room 3. Wifi had 300MB limit, a bit low guys. An unlimited plan which all rooms can access does not cost much.

I love this place...... Whenever I return to Brissy, this is the first stop on the tour and has been for years. Close to the airport and with easy access to town via the bus or ferry, lots of services within walking distance and a pub across the road, what more could you want. The staff are friendly and helpful,... More

This was booked through Agoda where it is not mentioned that there is a deposit required. Once booked the property sent it own terms and conditions which included providing a deposit on arrival. It would be proper to list correct terms and conditions on travel websites. This responsibility is with the property and they are deficient in this. There is... More

This property is located close to South Bank in Brisbane. Its only a 15 minute walk to all the key attractions in the area. The property itself is opposite the Pauls factory so expect some noise from the trucks and the operations itself. The main accommodation block has several floors. The lifts are located half way along the corridors. If... More

Me and 3 gfs stayed the night at Riverview Motel before we boarded our Food & Wine cruise with P & O. Very happy. Clean, safe, budget accommodation. Close to the international cruise terminal, however, because of our luggage, we choose to get a maxi taxi (auto $12 fee for maxi, pls $12 for the actual trip.) Recommend taking less... More

This motel is clean and tidy, basic but has very friendly staff and is located perfectly for walking to Bretts Wharf to catch the city cat on the river. It is also a hop, skip and jump from the Airport which was very easy to get to. Great value for money given the location.

We were looking for a reasonably priced accommodation handy to the City Cat Ferry, so as to enjoy Cirque du Soleil at North Shore Hamilton as well as access to the City. The Riverview Motel is on Riverview Terrace and a 3 minute walk to Bretts wharf to catch the ferry, and a 5 minute walk to Racecourse road, a... More

Stayed here Saturday 18 April with my husband in room 15 with our friends (another couple) next door in room 14. Rooms were divided by a door but that didn't bother us at all. Wasn't noisy considering the Hamilton Hotel was across the road and the busy Kingsford Smith Drive just a few meters down the street. We relaxed, chilled... More

I was just looking to stay the night in Brisbane so I could have a few drinks at a function nearby. Knowing I wasn't going to spend much time there apart from sleeping I opted for a cheaper choice. The Motel is very dated and tired but the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Everything I needed on... More
