A nice place to stay
The lady running the reception area was very nice and friendly. The motel was very clean and it was a nice touch that my car windscreen was washed every morning
Happy to stay here again

Probably the worst hotel I have stated in
Riviera on Ruthven Motel
Absolutely dreadful from start to finish.. I called early in the day to confirm a booking and to let the reception know that i wouldn't arrive until around 7:30, I was spoken to in a very rude manner. I then arrived at my expected time, and was greeted with a sigh and nothing but a piece of paper to sign.. Very VERY rude staff.. I then collected my key and was not shown where my room was.. Once I eventually found my room, there was no parking spots for either my or my partners car. After we found a place for our cars, we let ourselves into the most disgusting hotel room I have ever seen.. Poorly made beds, rooms NOTHING like the pictures, and a fridge with rat droppings in it.. I could go on and on about the horrible state of this place, but I think I've said enough to keep as many people away as possible. In short, DONT DO IT!!

Helpful and Friendly
Before checking in sevice was very helpful because i was run ng late my room was ready for me
No problems except for the WiFi when I logged on Netgear asked too many personal questions such as m/card details etc so I didn' t use it. It should have been made available free for guests.

Our family needed a place to stay while attending a family funeral. This hotel provided us an ideal situation with comfort and convenience. I would stay there again without hesitation.

Great Stay!!!
Loved the king size bed and Austar in the Bedroom.
Fantastic greeting at checkin. Lovely quiet room. Clean and modern. The ONLY downside was no air con in the lounge. Probably not a problem in Tooowoomba most of the time, we just happened to be there on a particularly hot weekend.

Very clean,service with a smile,good location
They clean your windscreen of your car every morning, which we thought was a lovely thought, also the Thai Restaurant next door which they told us, to show your key and you will be given 10% off, well it looks run down on the outside but on the inside its beautiful and the food is excellent.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, we didn't expect our room to be cleaned everyday and our car windscreen. The staff are down to earth, good Aussies, welcoming and friendly. The bathroom was a great size with enough room for 2 in the shower,plenty of space without tripping over each other, the bed was excellent, we had great ....... and sleep. Recommend to anyone for a short stay to discover Toowoomba and the Carnival of Flowers. Thankyou Riviera for an enjoyable 3 days.
