Review of Riverlea Motel
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 23 Feb 2020
I stayed here for 2 nights. Very friendly reception and offered plenty of advice about the town. Room clean, comfortable and well equipped. Easy 2-3 minute walk to the restaurants. Set well back from main road, so no issues with road noise.
Date of stay: February 2020

    Reception was excellent. Very friendly. Motel had 2 bedrooms plus 3rd bed in lounge. Very clean and spacious. Close to the town centre, Would certainly stay again. Beds were comfortable and had 2 tvs and one of the best showers I have seen. Just a really nice place to stay.

    Room tip: Any room would be great but we were near the road and heard no road noise.

    My wife and I drove up and down the streets of Gore looking for a place to spend the night. We tried the Riverlea Motel. The price was good and we booked it. What a shock! The room was excellent. It was more of a suite with a separate kitchen and living room. Everything was perfect from the large comfy bed with an electric blanket to the kitchen with all we needed to make breakfast. A jewel.

    Front room unit 8 not the best if you want a ggod nights sleep. Trucks run all night long even on a public holiday. The missing trees along the front and side of the property still have not been replaced and they used to soften the road noise. Used to be favorite place to stay in Gore but no longer. Whole place could do with a fresh coat of paint and new beds could be more comfortable.

    We are disappointed to read your review and to hear that you you were not happy with your stay.
    We are in the process of totally refurbishing the whole complex, the unit your were in is due for new paint and carpet soon, we have already replaced the furniture including new quality beds in all units.
    Its a pity you did not share your concerns with management during your stay as we could have shifted you into one of our freshly painted units away from the road.

    Regards from Hanzel and the team.

    This motel was clean and tidy and beds were comfortable and warm. The iron and ironing board were used a lot by one of us who was performing at Gold Guitar awards. The paved area allowed plenty of room for vans to come and go .This is the best place we have stayed at in Gore in the past 9 years we have gone down to the awards.

    I spent a night here on a business trip. Easy checkin with a prior booking. WiFi worked. This is the first time I have come across a motel with Netflix. Much Michael better than a tired Sky sports only package that most motels have.
