Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Greater Sydney, Australia37 contributions25 helpful votes
I was looking for a stopover on my way to Queensland and thought I would find a suitable B & B in this area. I took a chance on this establishment and I wasn't disappointed. There are 3 rooms available and I decided on the Queen room, which had the separate bathroom across the hall. It was a nice set up and having the detached bathroom is better than having an ensuite attached, as it was a larger area but still private. I made good use of the bath after a long days drive from Sydney. The downstairs common area was large and inviting, which I didn't really use it because of my one night stay. It would be very handy if I was staying for a few days or more. The B & B is located a little bit back from the river and the main road, which means there were no traffic or noise issues and a short walk up a hill didn't worry me at all. It gets busy in the school holidays and the restaurants can get booked out, so I had dinner at the golf club nearby. That was a good decision. It would have been a pleasant walk to the club, but it was too cold and dark to walk along the river in the Winter months! Breakfast was great that morning and the host was very pleasant to deal with. It is hard to say anything negative about my experience and booking with them direct saved me a few dollars. I would stay here again.

What an an amazing place to stay. Sharon (host) was so welcoming and helpful, pointing out great spots for an evening meal or good swim spots. Super clean with generous room sizes and a little kitchenette. Can’t speak highly enough of this place.

We loved our stay at The Riverside Rest - perfect location to wander along the river into town and down to the V Wall. Our rooms were really comfortable and spotlessly clean. Sharon and Darren couldn’t have been more helpful and our breakfasts were fabulous. Would definitely recommend.

What a great place to stay! Never been anywhere so clean and tidy and host Sharon was extremely helpful, telling us about local attractions and recommendations for dinner. Very conveniently located. Our room was quiet and spacious as was the bathroom, the bed very comfortable! Great guest facilities including a menu of beveridges in our room fridge.

My husband booked a night online. Sharon phoned back to enquire if we had any Service NSW vouchers to use before they expired - and we did. This was very thoughtful and proactive of her. The room was spotless and comfortable. Breakfast was also very good - be sure to try some of Darren's strawberry jam. We couldn't resist buying two jars as we left. it is also close to the town centre and in walking distance to restaurants. Only thing to be aware of is stairs at the front and to the first floor, where the rooms are. Sharon was very willing to get our suitcases up for us, and in a few years, we will accept the offer. I believe there is a third parking spot that avoids the front stairs. Highly recommended with very pleasant and welcoming owners.

Stayed one night on they way to the Sunshine Coast. It was one of the best B&B’S we have stayed at. Sharon was very welcoming and helpful. The room was spotlessly clean warm and comfortable with so many little extras. Breakfast was delicious with the choice of continental including homemade bread and homemade strawberry jam or a hot breakfast. Great location 10min walk or a few minutes drive to good restaurants and coffee shops. We enjoyed our stay so much we will stop for two nights on our way home !!!!

The place was spotless. The Hosts made you feel welcome as soon as you stepped foot in the door. The Breakfast was cooked fresh and was a great way to stay the day. The facilities are new and are kept as such. I also enjoyed the friendly nature of the Host and her hospitality. I felt like I went to stay with friends. Thank you

It’s fine for an overnight stay. Clean and comfortable. The decor is dated but tasteful. Be aware some rooms don’t have an ensuite. A little out of the way from everything and the aren’t quite as shown on the website. No issue with parking. Breakfast is simple but tasty.

Thanks for reviewing your stay at Riverside Rest. It is great to hear you found our accommodation clean and comfortable. We have many repeat guests who stay longer than one night and love it here. Our decor is modern and only a few years old. We have one room which has it's own private bathroom which is not an ensuite, this is communicated on all websites and we phone each booking to advise them of this prior to their arrival. We are a two minute walk to the river, a five minute walk to the RSL, Bowling Club and a cafe and a 10 minute walk to town, Golf Club restaurants, and more cafes. We are far enough away to be peacefully located and close enough to walk everywhere. Riverside Rest is exactly as shown on our website and our table service breakfast includes a choice of freshly cooked or continental with home made bread, jam and yoghurt. We love what we do and hope it shows in the efforts we go to for our guests. Looking forward to your next visit. Regards, Sharon & Darrin Coleman

I was fortunate enough to stay at Riverside Rest for 2 weeks. The service was impeccable, the room was comfortable and exceptionally clean and the breakfast was great. Sharon and Darin provide a homely environment and I always felt like I was family and not just a guest. I would highly recommend staying there. Five out of five from me.

Spacious room with everything you require. Cleanliness, comfort, location, value for money and attention to detail makes it an ideal place to stay. Our breakfast which was included in the price was extremely generous. Special mention goes to Darrin for his amazing home made bread and home made jam and to Sharon for her friendly helpful and welcoming hospitality. Al and Rita
