I booked a 2 night stay earlier this month as a surprise to celebrate my husband's birthday. As we had met in France as students 45 years ago, it was a delight to find such a gem. The hosts Caroline and Robert (a fine chef) were very welcoming and made sure that our stay was a memorable one. Some highlights...

It's true, your stay was extra special with the French connection and particularly for the host, as we were able to speak French together with you.....my husband particularly enjoyed the long conversation he had with you both in his own language. So glad you enjoyed so much of our little paradise. Thank you for being such gracious guests with your...

These people were great at understanding my last minute mix up with a different hotel. They are such a welcoming family. The place was clean. I will personally be back, if not for the homemade jam, but because this place was one to remember.

It's always special to have mother/daughter guests and so your short visit was an encouragement to me. Thank you for all the positive things you saw about your experience at our B&B and so glad to have been able to help you out in a sticky situation. You can always come by again and buy some more jam any time...

We were pleased to find Riviera B & B to be a relaxing and comfortable place for a getaway. It offers beautiful natural setting in a quiet country area. Wonderful hosts who provide a friendly atmosphere and a willing to chat around the breakfast/ dinner table.Thankyou Caroline.

Your review is truly all-encompassing as it relates to so many aspects of our B&B and so gives enquirers a good overview of what it is to be a guest! It was our pleasure to be there for you to interact around the breakfast/dinner table. Thank you so much for your very generous comments which we treasure!

I am a lover of all things French and was tickled pink to find this BnB nestled in the undulating hills of Gilston. As a place almost in my backyard it was perfect for a weekend get-away without the drama of long drives, airports and the like. We were warmly welcomed by our hosts Stefano and Caroline who promptly replenished...

We travelled across from WA for the John Williamson concert and chose this accommodation based purely on it's proximity and convenience. To remain true to this review, I will firstly mention that this accommodation is a "homely, clean, under-stated abode". Though it is a traditional Queenslander with the original part of the home over 100 years old, I compare it...

We had a wonderfull experience at the Riviera B&B. The whole family enjoyed the un-matched family style hospitality, the fantastic scenary of the many wild birds on the balcony and the great french country-style food. I am sure the boys will remember the crepes breakfast with homemade jams, syrups and whipped cream! If you're looking for something posh with a...

Thanks so much Maurice and Kristine for your positive input...being French, you have a good appreciation of what is truly authentically French so it was great to have your encouraging review. We did so enjoy chatting away in French and having you share insights that make table conversation very enlightening! We look forward to having you stay again!

Gold Coast, Australia
Reviewed 13 April 2015

Our decision was made from reading the glowing reviews. We found the accommodation to be average. Far enough away from restaurants to make it almost impossible to find one. Admittedly the area is attractive and peaceful and that was the only plus. The meal provided by the owner/chef was expensive and once again very average. Sorry, we booked two nights...

Thank you Marian for your comments. I am sorry you were disappointed to the point of writing such a review. It is true that each one has his/her own expectations based largely on what is written by other guests' experiences. Admittedly, most reviews are written either by 2-night+ guests, or return guests. We are sorry that you found the meals...

This beaut place not far from everything on the Gold Coast, was a delight in every way, from its charming style and hosts, down to its idyllic setting. If you want laze on wide verandahs or linger over a leisurely breakfast complete with home made jam, in peaceful surroundings, then try this place.

I've stayed with Caroline and Robert twice now, once in 2013 and again in 2014. The first time I was recuperating by myself from a life-threatening accident and needed peace, quiet and a little sympathy. The second time was a much livelier affair where I brought a number of family members for a get-together for a few days. I'll be...
