The Riverview is a great place to stay. The owners are friendly and the place is peaceful and welcoming. There is adequate on-site parking. There are good restaurants and clubs nearby, though I would recommend Matilda's, which is only 1 minute from the Motel and does excellent seafood. From the Motel you can take a pleasant walk along the coast... More

This is a very friendly motel in Nambucca heads. A very basic 4 star motel but with an excellent service. Good shower and good TV. Possibly the best choice in Nambucca heads. Some of the rooms have a river view.

The Riverview is a very comfortable and well-priced establishment. Rooms are spacious and all the usual amenities are on offer. Views are spectacular and the whole stay was quiet and super-relaxing, with very friendly and attentive staff making sure that things ran well. The cooked breakfast was excellent. Good value.
