Beautiful old Queenslander brought back from the brink of extinction and turned into a great B&B set in lush gardens with birds aplenty. Great opportunity to have some peace and quiet with only nature for a neighbour. Tastefully furnished with 12 ft ceilings four poster beds and cron mouldings to die for. Some rooms with ensure bath others with private... More

Thank you so very much Neville for your very generous review of our B&B Queenslander and property. We enjoyed so much hearing your story and to see your enthusiasm with Mariette for our birds at the breakfast deck. Hope you can return with your grandkids! Warmly Caroline More

Lovely location in the middle of tree lined property. Lots of rules posted everywhere. Got charged for sheets on single bed which it did not have. Milk was not available and as we got back late was disappointed we could not have coffee. Think it needs an update as looks tired but was clean. If I had read what the... More

We loved this BnB tucked away in the hills. We arrived late at night so it was a wonderful surprise t wake in the morning, walk out onto the verandah and see how pretty the house and gardens were. Hosts were very attentive and the breakfasts were simply amazing. The bathroom down the hallway was large and very clean. We... More

Although our stay was only overnight, this would be the perfect place for a quiet, relaxing holiday. Hosts Caroline and Robert made us most welcome. So many thoughtful details, the beautifully kept building and the character given by the decor make it very special. Breakfast was a treat! I can still smell that wonderful coffee and am sorry I didn't... More

We had a lovely weekend at Riviera. I booked it because I wanted something different to a standard hotel on the Gold Coast. Riviera is in the hinterland and a bit off the beaten track.

After struggling to find somewhere at the last minute this little place came onto my search screens. Yes i read the reviews and sensed that some negative ones were perhaps a little out of place and not completely genuine.

10 of us stayed for 2 nights to celebrate a 60th birthday. We enjoyed ourselves immensely. The house was ideal for our purposes and we made good use of the guests lounge room. The breakfasts were wonderful and we had a magnificent birthday dinner. I can recommend this place without hesitation.

Thank you for posting such an encouraging review. I have to say your 60th birthday celebrations must have been close to being the Top Weekend for a group booking at our B&B.

I have stayed a number of times with my 4 dogs and have always been made to feel at home. Caroline is warm and friendly and the room was extremely comfortable. My dogs were allowed to sleep inside which meant a lot to me. Stef is friendly and helpful and the pool area is amazing. Will definitely be back!

Riviera B&B is a beautifully manicured piece of paradise, with butterflies, birds and lush greenery all around. The pool is beautifully kept and was a hit with my little man.

Disappointing to say the least. The place looks gorgeous. Tranquil, serene, and lovely attention to detail. Unfortunately this venue is uncertain whether they are a homestay or a commercial B&B.
