I booked a room in these apartments as it came recommended by a friend. I wasn't put off by the lack of any staff on the weekend which I still find odd. I was intrigued by having to retrieve our room key from a safe bolted to the wall next to the entry stairs. Our room was..... Standard. Nothing special.... More

Managed for absentee owners and not serviced daily. Great location in a quiet seaside town with awesome weather. The rooms are large but not new and not with perfect equipment. Nice beach and kids playground nearby with good restaurant choices too. Not all rooms face the water!

We paid a small fortune to stay here over Easter. As soon as we walked in we were disappointed. Our 'Riverside' apartment faced the back overlooking old tin sheds & run down buildings. I left the towels on the floor after the first night expecting room service, arrived back 1am to find nothing had been done. Read the book &... More

During our trip from Sydney to Coolangatta airport we stayed 2 nights at Riverside Holiday Apartments. The rooms have everything you need for a short stay, the rooms are clean and well equiped. We had a room with a very large balcony it made up for the fact that we did not have a sea view. The complex offers free... More

We (2A/2K) recently stayed two nights at the Riverside Apartments and had a wonderful stay. The 2 bedroom apartment we had was absolutely massive! Literally bigger than the house I grew up in! There is a full sized kitchen and laundry in the apartment so you can stay there, cook your own meals (Woolworths just across the street) or stroll... More

The 1 bedroom was spacious, clean and comfortable with a large balcony overlooking the river. The apartments are within walking distance to a few good pubs and Woolies and the walk along the river is beautiful. I found staff were friendly and helpful and I will stay there again and would recommend to others.

I see there are some bad reviews about this place but we stayed in July and found it to clean/comfy with nice big rooms, i cannot fault the place and would have no hesitation in staying again or recomending it. We had a river view room so a nice outlook and close to everything, but i suppose you can only... More

The hotel appears to be a nice, neat hotel however I wouldn't know as I didn't get to experience it since I had to travel at MIDNIGHT to go home after a family event due to not being able to get back into our room as the elevators didn't work. I spent roughly 40minutes trying to get up to our... More
