Enjoy a unique French Bed and Breakfast experience in an exquisite 100 year old majestic Queenslander secluded on seven acres of peaceful sub-tropical bushland in the Gold Coast Hinterland near Nerang - the French-style Riviera B&B. We are located at Gilston, near Nerang, the Gateway to the Hinterland. Our property boasts 4 Queen rooms and 1 Double room with French-Provincial touches.

Caroline and French-born Robert Marchesi at their Gold Coast Hinterland Bed and Breakfast will pamper you with unforgettable French Speciality Breakfasts on weekends and wholesome continental breakfasts (including homegrown produce) on weekdays and that French touch every step of the way while you recharge your batteries in this little Gold Coast Hinterland paradise.

Not only that, you can treat yourself to a sumptuous French dining experience where your host will passionately prepare for you a Provincial French Dinner that will satisfy your inner being.

Spoil yourself to a touch of French culture and cuisine. Soak in the serenity of our sub-tropical and three hectares of native bushland - beside the large pool or relax in the shade of the wrap-around verandahs with the music of birds and rustling trees.

We initially chose this accommodation because it was dog friendly but it turned out to be so much more. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and our hosts made our evening very special with a delicious French dinner served in a cosy, private dining area. Excellent in all aspects, highly recommended. Our little dog loved it too! Narelle and Jeff NSW



good value for money. Would recommend Riveria to any who wants a friendly, relaxing place to stay at. Wonderful host and the location is perfect to relax and enjoy. Lost of close by places to visit.

- NSW,


We had a wonderful and relaxing time. It was a home away from home. Breakfast was very interesting as the beautiful birdlife in the area came and fed on the balcony.

- QLD,


Everything we wanted was there. No need to get in the car.



Our stay was most enjoyable. The service was excellent. The friendship outstanding.
