  • 8.0.Very good

    Im not happy about hands off management. Guests are expected to check emails for info and even this info is hard to follow. There is noone present at rhe establishment, no human interaction. Cafe staff at breakfast were busy and efficient, but not expected to lift the atmosphere at all. The room was comfortable and warm. It had everything we needed. Its a dark room though unlike the photo. Night lighting is poor and there are dangerous potholes in the carpark which cant be seen at night. As this is the only passage to restaurants etc it needs thought.

    Centrally located but the shower was awful no pressure, only entry was from the back of the car park to a upstairs back outdoor staircase which was dark and hard to find. Disappointing overall as this was the executive suite.

    I love this place. I’m in Bairnsdale for work and staying here is so comfortable. Beds amazing. Clean and yummy biscuits to have with a cuppa. Feels like home away from home.

  • 4.0.Fair

    I received an anonymous text message saying the pre check in registration has not been completed please click on the link. Everyone knows NEVER to click on links to avoid scams. Would have been better if the message mentioned the name of the hotel! Needless to say the form was unnecessary and inconvenient to fill out on ones phone whilst driving.... total time waster, despite covid and all the precautions that must be taken.

    The accommodation is so comfortable. Beautiful beds and really lovely rooms. The breakfast that is provided is perfect and served in a gorgeous dining room overlooking the garden. It feels like home away from home.

    Great location. 2 smaller chairs would be better than 1 big one for 2 people. More wardrobe space needed.

    Riversleigh is a lovely historic place to stay with plenty of old world charm. It’s situated in the heart of Bairnsdale which is very helpful so a stroll to the shops was no bother. The staff were friendly and bright and my included breakfast was delicious.
