Great location. 2 smaller chairs would be better than 1 big one for 2 people. More wardrobe space needed.

Riversleigh is a lovely historic place to stay with plenty of old world charm. It’s situated in the heart of Bairnsdale which is very helpful so a stroll to the shops was no bother. The staff were friendly and bright and my included breakfast was delicious.

Pleasant surroundings, more care needed in the garden areas - pot plants dead. Staff overworked, rooms often not made up until late afternoon- not always stocked correctly. Breakfast we’re delicious.
