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

We were looking for an overnight stay in Nambucca Heads, as it was a long drive from Sydney to Lismore where we were catching up with family since the lockdown. We could not have found a more suitable rest stop. Close to town and all ammenities. We were tired and were welcomed with a beautiful smile and very comfortable and clean room. (All very CoVid safe of course). We had a bit of time to look around the area before a delicious local Indian meal 🥘. Suggested by Sharon. Breakfast 🍳 was great. Darrin is a great cook 👨‍🍳 There were a few steps to get to the room but we were also helped with the luggage 🧳 , so no problem.

The essence of a good B&B is that it should be the next best thing to home. Riverside Rest encompasses this perfectly. We stayed on two separate occasions this week and were welcomed back like family. The accommodation is spacious and spotless and the breakfasts are excellent. Sharon and Darrin have taken their hosting duties to an art form. Highly recommended.
