The staff were extremely helpful and attentive. The room was very clean, the bed was a bit soft for my liking but that is personal preference, the location was an easy walk to the convention centre and the price was reasonable for a weekend 😀🎁

This is an older style hotel which is undergoing upgrading. Location near the city, Museum, Library, Art Gallery, Southbank. Older style furniture and room fittings. Clean. Hotel is getting hemmed in with new building developments very near. A bright ground floor restaurant is important as food or drink venues are a walk away. Pool and onsite parking a big plus.

I have stayed here twice now. First time was with 3 kids and myself for two nights, back in December 2015. It was handy and clean, but a little bit small for the 4 of us. The sofa bed wasn't big enough for 2 teenage kids to share. Making it uncomfortable for 1 teenager who ended up sleeping on cushions... More

We literally needed a bed and a car park, as we were catching our sister's graduation ceremony the next day on Grey Street. Booking was great and she offered me a cheaper rate over the phone than I could get on Wotif etc for our Tuesday night stay. She was super friendly and helpful. Upon arrival, the guy at the... More

I've just had my 3rd stay at Riverside Hotel. The staff went out of their way to make my stay enjoyable. My dad and I were upgraded from the Standard Room to the 1 Bedroom Apartment for an extra $10 a night. It was more than worth it. The Montague's Restaurant serves outstanding meals.

We have stayed at this hotel many times before, and have never been disappointed. Staff friendly and helpful. Rooms very clean and comfortable. Close to theatres and city centre. Breakfast was as usual - fresh and delicious. Parking available if you are early. We will be back.

Very handy location to Southbank, the museum, state library and the convention centre. Good priced and fast room service. The room was a reasonable size for two people. I didn't have the greatest confidence in the lift but it didn't breakdown.

Close to Southbank amenities. Good restaurant free underground secure parking. Courteous staff and most helpful. Great walking paths to Southbank . Clean and tidy appartments. No problem room service. We enjoyed being able to park the car and walk to theatres and the CBD. No problem weekend.

This place is well kept, very handy to transport, eateries, bars and the CBD. The room is spacious and very clean. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast deal is cheap and filling, both hot and cold. Did not use the pool because of the cold but it looked good. The costs are not exorbitant and quite reasonable.... More

This is not a 5 star property by any means, but I found the bed to be comfortable and breakfast good. This property is good for business travelers. Staff very helpful. Arriving late was not an issue as the night manager was very helpful
