I returned to the Riverview Motel to find it has completely changed, from a once very basic and bland motel in a great location. This Motel has been transformed into a cosy and inviting little haven recently. It has everything to do with the new manager Saskia, who admits she loves decorating , cooking and making people happy. I believe... More

Well we stayed here on our arrival to Australia and found the motel to be clean and comfortable with a great air conditioner in the high heat. We so enjoyed the manager Saskia that we decided to come back again on our departure. We felt like she was a friend we just hadn't seen in a long time. She gave... More

...What can I say, except this 'family orientated' motel was the epitome of service excellence....from the initial friendly greeting....to the more than homely, clean & comfy rooms - and the above and beyond service from 'Saskia' (Manager) My friend and I stayed one night prior to & one night after our ship cruise. Saskia drove us down to the shipping... More

Nice place good service.. They will even drive you to the ship if cruising... Be careful coming from airport some taxi drivers deliberately take you to the wrong Riverview to get a bigger fare... rooms are comfortable.

This has to be one of the most favourite places I have stayed. The manager (Saskia) was so friendly and helpful. The African room was really special and a credit to her clever design and decor. Just enough out of the city to feel relaxed but is super close to food and shops and also the ferry that we took... More

Good location, not a far drive from Brisbane city. Close to Brisbane river and walking distance to ferry wharf (public transport). Street traffic a little busy/noisey but didn't hinder a light sleeper. Quaint room style which I like very much. Clean and comfortable, including the bed (I want to steal the pillow). Saskia is a lovely host & cooks a... More
