Certificate of Excellence
Our boutique 21 room hotel provides the perfect weekend getaway or corporate retreat. The Riversleigh is conveniently located near the central business district in Bairnsdale on a quiet street over-looking the Mitchell River. This historic hotel - an East Gippsland Icon, dates back to 1886. The Riversleigh (3 Victorian terraces) were renovated to their original elegance in 1987 and has recently undergone a major refurbishment to provide modern day comfort within the original elegant surrounds. High ceilings, plush linen, a picturesque setting and attentive service are just the first things you will notice upon your arrival at the Riversleigh. Three room options are available; Classic Queen, Deluxe King, & Executive Suites all offering private ensuites (two of which feature spa baths). Whichever you choose, you'll be impressed by the relaxed, warm feeling and the sense of history that pervades this 1880's mansion.

Riversleigh is charming until you realise, every time your neighbour uses the bathroom, the sound (of the flush, the cistern filling up, the shower draining, ) echoes loudly through your room. Made for a very unpleasant night and stay at the Riversleigh. The common areas...More

We stayed for one night in the apartment and really loved it. Our 2 year old loved the place as well. Stuart was super nice and made us feel at home. A perfect location to stop while driving down the coast. Will come back!
