Came with the family on a stinking hot weekend, to swim at the surf beach during the day then to relax in the motel pool later. Very disappointed to learn that the pool hours were from 10am-7pm and anyone using it outside these hours would be required to leave the motel (or words to similar effect in the guest guide...

The size of the room was bigger than expected. We stayed one night in the small motel with cabin's that take up all of the site. The kitchenette is a fantastic addition with toaster, kettle, bar fridge, microwave and utensils. There is a BBQ in the pool area aswell. Bathroom clean and spacious. There are blankets in the cupboards if...

Hi Thank you for your review and feedback. I'm glad you found the rooms comfortable. The pool hours issue is a bit problematic in that we have to cater for everyone - families with older kids, young couples with babies, retirees, workers etc. When we have extended the pool hours to 8pm in the past, we have had comments from...

A one night stopover in ocean grove with a last minute booking at the Riverside. Friendly staff with efficient checkin and service. The room was well appointed and faced the pool. Would recommend you ask for one of these.

We had a terrific mini break, staying at Riverside. We were really happy with the set up of the 2-in-1 motel room family suite. One bedroom had a queen bed and a single, with a door you could close (perfect for our early-to-bed kids), and the main room had a TV, small dining table, queen bed and couch-fold-out-bed. It had...

Large rooms plenty of space. Very clean and may have been recently renovated. All of the rooms over look a centrally located swimming pool. Friendly helpful staff. We were towing a trailer and there was plenty of to unhook so it was out of the way.
