“Old but Nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

Very old place but very nice. The staff was wonderful to me & my husband. We had a room called the honeymoon suite which over looks the river there. Not too much of a view. I recommend pool side room & get a newly renovated room downstairs. The amenties here are fabulous.
We will come here again.

Room Tip: Pool side rooms are the best view. The spa is awesome there too !

I had a great time here with my boyfriend- the place was very clean, and cozy. They deliver breakfast to your door in the morning (no hot items on menu). We had a porch right off our room that overlooked the pool and they have complimentary bikes to ride to the beach (about 6 blocks) . My only complaint would be that the rooms are a little small for the money and like the rest of the hotels it is located right off the main drag, which can be a plus if you enjoy shopping. The staff there was very friendly as well!

We decided to give the Riverview another chance. Things do happen that are out of people's control sometimes! The recently renovated pool and our room were fantastic. Friday and Saturday evening's wine and cheese receptions were so nice as we got to meet and make some lifelong friends in the quaint and comfortable lobby, which felt more like being in your grandmother's living room. It was fun having breakfast on the veranda and swimming in the early morning. The staff, as before, were friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. Dana was especially gracious and a most welcoming hostess! We give the Riverview 5 stars because they take care of their customers, made my Birthday especially memorable and turned out to be a wonderfully romantic getaway! Thank you Riverview for also making us a believer in your Hotel! It was a beautiful weekend! :)

The hotel was built in 1885, and we went during the off season. Manager upgraded us to a room with a River view, which has recently been renovated and opened to a 2nd floor patio. We walked to the beach, about a half mile away. Staff was wonderful! We did not know the spa was there, but it looked good and was priced right. Restaurant also looked good and has an early bird special, although we did not try it. Will next time.

We went for a weekend getaway and had a great time. Our suite had a nice patio leading into the pool area which was nice and secluded. The staff were all great and Dana had a lot of good tips for things to see in the area.

The hotel is on the river side of NSB, so it's isolated from a lot of the traffic and crowds by the beach, hop on one of their complimentary bikes and you're on the beach in 10 mins.

We had an awesome time and are already discussing another trip to NSB to stay there!

The room we chose (Coronado Suite) was quite dark and small for the amount we paid. The property is ideally situated on the River and near "Old town" which were a plus. The continental breakfast was the same choices each day delivered to your room - cereal and a roll or muffin and coffee ... nothing special, even the orange juice wasn't fresh squeezed. I thought the rooms were very pricey for even the standard rooms, which were tiny. The lobby was quaint and the gift shop carried nice upscale gifts. We couldn't get a spa treatment as they were sold out on Friday and Saturday. Might stay there again. The Grille was great food and nice atmosphere on the river.

Room Tip: Not sure if there is a "good" room. We picked a suite which didn't seem like a suite...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2013

An upscale no-chain hotel with B&B cosy feel. Room had own patio to pool. So great to wake up and swim before having the light breakfast on the balcony. The room had a period style. The carpet did look a bit tired. Staff are friendly and helpful. Not too keen on the restaurant and strongly recommend a 5 minute trip by car to Norwoods which has excellent food and an interesting style building.

Room Tip: If you like a swim ask for a room by the pool.
