My visit to Riverside was a business trip. During the afternoons, I was able to having a relaxing time at the fire. The food was great and rooms excellent. I walked through the magnificent gardens at night, and it looks good. Wish I could have been there during the warmer season.

The hotel is really is not set up for handling with such low temperatures, with only a heat function on the aircon unit. The public areas of the hotel were always cold, especially during breakfast in... More

Though my wife, kids and I came in only for resting after driving fro JHB to Mafikeng then en route to Bethlehem. We had a good sleep in a big room with two double beds, had a splendid breakfast and took photos on boats in the river before we drove on.

We enjoyed a weekend break here. The hotel and staff are very friendly and helpful. The pool and gardens are lovely. Our deluxe room was drafty but clean & spacious and well equipped, but our air-con could only blow luke warm air so we were cold at night, also could not properly seal out the noise from the traffic crossing...
