“Lovely stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

We were recommended this motel by an isite in a different town. It was an excellent recommendation. We found the hostess very helpful. Her cat was as friendly as she was. The room was very clean and tastefully decorated. Also a very good size and great value for money. Highly recommendable.

Stayed February 2013, traveled as a couple

Close to town, with spacious rooms and a quiet location. The room I had was scrupulously clean and well equipped with a good flat screen tv and a decent kitchen. The Montpelier was friendly and helpful.

After a day of feeling very sick the Riverlea Motel felt like the best place in the world to lay my head. Marion was very kind and caring. Our unit was spotlessly clean and very user friendly. The bed was extremely comfortable. Excellent value for money and it will certainly be the place we stay next time we visit Gore. Marion's customer service was outstanding. Thank you.

We stayed three nights for a combined business and pleasure trip. My husband and I found our stay enhanced by Marian's friendliness and helpfulness.
The continental breakfasts were delivered to our room the night before and the relevant items put in the fridge if we weren't there.
We had a one bedroom unit. The rooms were big and well equipped. I thought the make-up remover with the other standard toiletries a good idea.
In the kitchen I particularly liked the addition of the orange squash fruit mix packets in with the tea and coffee sachets.
Although the one wall heater in the lounge looked small it quickly headed up both the lounge and bedroom and we found we did not need any heating on at all during the nights.
The motel is in walking distance to quite a few eating places. We also found many places of interest we did not expect to find in a town of this size.

This is a good one!
We arrived late into the night and we still welcomed by the staff and escorted to our rooms, which has plenty of space and were very very clean
June in Gore generally isn't very warm, but the heater in the unit had been turned on before we got there. In the morning I turned the heater off, but again when we returned later that afternoon it had been turned on again and the room was nice and warm for the evening. Thank you!!
Plenty of hot water for showering and reasonably priced laundry facilities as well.
Well done to all those responsible for the Riverlea Motel.
