good one night stay
Lovely views from our unit but unfortunately the noise from the road is constant until late at night and then starts up at about 4.30 am. Clean and spacious motel unit and lovely to have the separate bedroom

We really enjoyed out stay at Riverview Motel. It was the second time we have stayed there. The owner/manager and all the staff are very friendly and helpful. The motel is clean, tidy and very comfortable. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to others too.
