The Riverview Motel has completely changed since I was here a year ago. Then, it was a very basic motel with average facilities. Now it is fantastic with new beautiful interior décor and the service is better than many 5 star motels. The reason is the manager and hostess Saskia, who takes a pride in making people happy. She tells...

We traveled as a family of 4 and stayed one night before a cruise. Saskia has done wonders with this motel and if feels like a home away from home. The location is fantastic and walking distance to some great restaurants. The City Cat is just down the end of the street for those wanting to venture into Brisbane City....

We stayed here as a family of four for one night before an international flight. The motel is the old fashioned 70's style with quirky charm. We stayed in the Africa room and it was clean but definitely old. The manager was friendly. A good location for restaurants but probably wouldn't want to stay here for more than one night....

What a refreshing change to find a motel that is more like a bed and breakfast and that your hostess really cares!! The rooms are all individually styled with your comfort in mind - comfortable bed, clean as a whistle a view of the water from the balcony, a barbecue and seating area for guest to mingle if they so...

I arrived at the Motel on the recommendation of a friend without a booking (my phone had died!) I am a mature aged woman travelling alone. I know Brisbane quite well, but had no idea about an old style Motel still operating in the city and in such a great location. What a pleasant surprise it was. They had just...

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...

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...

...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.

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.
