The Riverview Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 July 2010

There is a nice feel to this hotel. The staff were so sweet and helpful. I enjoyed the area as well.
The swimming pool is heated ( very warm) and in a lush tropical enclosure. The spa next door was fabulous and has all sorts of wonderful treatments plus a thermal mineral pool. The restaurant served up the best fish dishes with lovely views of dolphins and pelicans. I will definately look forward to another visit.

One can not truly experience New Smyrna's Beachside without staying at The Riverview Hotel, they go together hand and hand, The hotel is a landmark for this lovely island. Its the perfect blend of southern graciousness, and old world charm. It has character, elegance, history, The Riverview is in a class of its own. The staff treat you like family, they bend over backward to make your stay absolute perfection, when we go to New Smyrna there is NO other place I would even think to stay. It is like coming home. The third floor is tops, and I will apologize if room 318 is booked but that just means we are probably there, I can't wait to visit New Smyrna Beach again, and believe me I will be going home, home to the Riverview.

This landmark hotel in New Smyrna Beach is nestled in a quiet corner of the town just steps from the Intercoastal Waterway. Sitting on our private porch we watched yachts pass under the nearby bridge. The hotel staff made us feel right at home. The morning breakfast of cereal, fruitcup, and hot tea was served at exactly the time we requested. It is only a short walk to shops and the lovely ocean beach.

We had our wedding reception here last May and it was incredible. The food was awesome, the staff incredibly friendly and helpful. Some said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. Our whole family spent the long weekend at the hotel (we had the honeymoon room). Everyone loved it. It is comfortable and the breakfast delivered to the room is so nice. We are planning on going back soon. Highly reconmmend for a vacation or any type of party or reception.

My wife and I were both pleasantly surprised. We had known about this bed and breakfast for years, passing by it every weekend in the summer as we drove over the draw bridge to New Smyrna Beach. Finally, I got around to booking a stay there and we both had a fabulous time. The rooms and bathrooms were exceptionally clean. The staff very friendly. The location is within walking distance of everything. The restaurant next door exceeded our expectations. We've decided to make this an annual tradition.

I travelled to Florida on a business trip and had the pleasure of staying at the Riverview. If not for the cold weather, I'm pretty sure it would've been an even greater experience. It really depends on what you're looking for. The rooms were clean, the bed/mattress was excellent and the staff was very friendly. I could've used a microwave and/or a refrigerator, but that's not what the place is about. Took a nice stroll to the beach every morning and enjoyed my cup of coffee. I'm enclosing a picture of the front desk cutie! I told her I'll be back...and I will!

We did choose the honeymoon room (# 317) and it was so good. First morning, sitting at the balcony eating breakfast, we saw manatees in the river. The hotel is not the most luxorious ( if that is important for you) but it is friendly, clean and have perfect location.
