We stayed here for 3 nights and Sharon made sure our stay was comfortable and gave us plenty of tips on activities. Room was cleaned everyday with fresh towels which was a pleasant surprise. Delicious cooked breakfast were part of the rates. Gluten free options were also accommodated. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay at the riverside should we be in that area again!

We came for a night to discover Nambucca with our son. We stayed in the big room and were agreeably surprised by the cleanliness of this comfortable B&B. We slept like babies and the breakfast was great too. Sharon was welcoming and we highly recommend a stay here.

Spotlessly clean bed and breakfast with good food. Comfortable room with en-suite and balcony with view of Nambucca River. Only stayed one night but would definitely revisit if staying in Nambucca Heads again.

Thank you so much for rating Riverside Rest so highly. Your comfort is important to us and although we are a bed and breakfast we have put a lot of effort into ensuring our rooms are to a 4.5 star hotel/motel standard with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Another guest has called us a mini motel. We look forward to seeing you again. Regards, Sharon & Darrin Coleman

We arrived mid afternoon and were greeted warmly and genuinely. The rooms were all very clean and inviting. My husband had never stayed in and B&B and was initially very unsure, but he was quickly sold. The bathroom was private, large and well appointed. The bed was extremely comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was delicious. The home made breads and jams were amazing. I would recommend this property to couples.
