“Nice enought still but some issues”
Reviewed 17 May 2012

Stayed May 2012. Originally booked into a 1b/r apt but realised bedroom was upstairs as i didn't want stairs to climb I asked reception if anything else available. Young girl at reception was most obliging & moved us to same apt as we had one other visit a 2b/r apt.(407) cnr room overlooking the river.

Now a year or so has passed since our last stay & while majority ok there are some issues. 1st the lounge it is soooo uncomfortable & as its a sofa bed it has sagged considerably. 2nd & this is always a pet of mine when reviewing the IRON why of why do managers/owners let their irons become so marked that I had to use a washer as a buffer btween the iron & what I was ironing we were there on business hence having to make sure our clothes were presentable. Also the oh so thin ironing boards that when you iron the metal imprint marks your clothes as the padding is so thin again a towel was used as a buffer.

The carpet looks new & the bed was comfortable. 2nd TV in bedroom which is always a bonus.

Apt was clean (bar the iron) & quiet.

Secure undercover parking with a lift to floors. Easy 3min walk to RSL which we choose for dinner & it was quite nice.

Staff members all very cordial.

Stayed here for a friends wedding in a riverside spa room. Room did seem a little cramped for the price that we payed for it however was adequate for a couple of nights. Bathroom was very clean with a small corner spa. Had a small balcony that overlooked the boats on the river. Overall it was a cosy room with a nice view and a convenient position. Staff were also very friendly and happy to help. On the downside not a big fan of the H20 restaurant, meals under cooked and soggy.

I have stayed here a few times now, mainly due to it's good location in the CBD of Bundaberg. The staff are never very friendly, which doesn't start you off on a positive note. The rooms are a good size, but for some reason they always smell damp and musty... really annoying actually.

The room I got this time, the air con made a really loud noise, and when I asked for it to be looked at I was told it was not possible.... so I couldn't use it.

It would be a 50/50 if I stayed here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces the river.

My stay at the Burnett Riverside....... Being an ex Bundaberg Resident.. I have always wanted to stay in this very decent looking place, overlooking both the main Bundy City area + the Burnett River.
From my perspective..... very good rooms. The motel is in a fantastic location to central Bundaberg. The adjoining H20 Bar Restaurant offers nice meals, with a nice outlook !

I spent 5 nights at this hotel. The room was poor, located on a busy road and had a damp musty smell.

My husband and I stayed here on our way north from Brisbane. The staff were very friendly and helpful, nothing was a problem to them. The hotel has recently been renovated and looks fantastic, very fresh and clean. The new management seem to be making alot of improvements and are very involved in working alongside their staff, creating a happy environment. We would definitely stay there again.
