Great stay! First time ever in a motel and I loved it. The room is super clean and has a warm and very cosy feeling. The lovely woman working there called Saskia is amazing and so kind! Very helpfull and I as a solo traveler, am thankful to meet people just like her. Would definitely go back!

We stayed here for one night for a nearby weekend seminar. The location is great, the room was quirky, however very well presented and perfectly clean. The manager Saskia was very welcoming and prepared us an amazing breakfast, for an extremely reasonable price. It certainly isn't the Hilton, but I'm happy to highly recommended!

I have been staying at the Riverview for many years and continue to return. The management is excellent and go out of their way to make the guest comfortable and welcome. It is close to the Brett's Wharf City Cat ferry terminal and plenty of shops near by if you wish to eat out. I certainly will stay there again.

We wanted to stay near the river and airport for a 2 night stay in Brisbane and picked Riverview Motel as it met these needs. Saskia the manager was most welcoming and also changed our upstairs room to a downstairs one as we had so much luggage and an early flight departure. We had breakfast there on Saturday which was...

Her involvement and manner are superb examples of a real friendly accommodation style The addition of excellent...
