We stayed here overnight whilst traveling north to visit family which we have done a few times over last year. We will definitely be booking this motel next time!! It was clean comfortable and the breakfast included was excellent. The managers Rena and Ziggy were most helpful. The reasonably priced mini bar in the room was most welcome after a...

On a very wet and stormy trip from Byron Bay to Nambucca Heads it was a relief and a pleasure to stay at The Riverview. Ziggy and Rene have created a haven for travellers and breathed new life into a wonderful historic building. Everything is spotlessly clean and well maintained and the hospitality and attention to detail is faultless.

Delightful room in a tastefully restored historic building, with views of the river from the balcony. Hostess was very pleasant and friendly and had introduced nice Japanese touches to the room. We had a pleasant breakfast which was brought to our room.

A good transit stop but so much more. A good base to explore Nambucca Heads and the fascinating country hinterland. The new owners are committed to maintaining high standards and offer a warm welcome and a lot of attention to detail.

We could only stay for one night, unfortunately. This beautiful building and location is perfectly clean, better than some 5 star we have stayed. The location is close to town, adjacent to the river with terrific views and good restaurants nearby. Would be excellent for a weekend getaway from Sydney. The new hosts are gracious, obliging and prepare an excellent...

This motel is in a perfect location - adjacent to the beach and the centre of town. The room was immaculate and very tastefully decorated. Staff were really friendly - and our tasty breakfast was delivered to our room at no extra charge!
