Due to regular business travel to Durban, I often ends up staying at this hotel (by no choice of mine) The rooms are in a terrible state. The one I'm staying in currently has a very old "stand in bath" type of shower with grouting cracking or missing between bathroom tiles. Although the room is air-conditioned, it is too noisy...

I recently stayed at the Three Cities Riverside Hotel with a friend, and I was very disappointed. The weekend was ruined by a house full of political people who shouted in the hall ways,smoked in the rooms and you could smell it throughout the floor, ate everything at breakfast which then was not replenished, and were constantly noisy, rowdy and...

My husband and I have stayed at the Riverside several times and we always find it clean, comfortable and extremely good value. The recently refurbished rooms are tastefully decorated with very comfortable beds and good linen. Lovely showers with powerful spray. Staff are friendly and helpful, especially the front desk team. All in all a tranquil and affordable escape from... More

My overall experience with Riverside hotel was absolutely amazing. From making the reservation to check-out. The staff were friendly and helpful, rooms were spacious and clean and the food was well presented and delicious! I would recommend this hotel to any business and leisure travelers.

If you are holidaying or on business in Durban and need a place that does not cost you an arm and a leg and you are going to be out for most of the day, and you need a venue that is close to the City of Durban-and you have a vehicle to get around, then this hotel should be... More

I took my wife & daughter to the hotel restaurant for a business lunch a day before Christmas. The restaurant was busy...although service is slow...& I visited there twice in December...meals were excellent & well priced.

Stayed here for two nights on business. Rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The room had 1 double and 1 single bed. The bathrooms are quite small, the toilet position is by far the most curious. I guess if they made a complete refurbishment and removed the bath tub, the bathroom would be a bit better spaced out. The rooms... More

What a beautiful, yet simplistic room. Comfortable bed, clean and the view was to die for. The food was excellent. Loved the pool. Staff were helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay I would highly recommend the Riverside Hotel for business or pleasure.

Stayed here 1 night, presenting at a seminar there in the conference facility. We arrived as a large group late at night, but reception dealt with us quickly and efficiently. The room was clean and of reasonable size. There was free wifi which was easy to log on to and worked well. The room also has a small kitchen area... More

A very relaxed destination to help you enjoy your time spent in Durban. The Hotel boasts a variety of activities for one to engage in from the Health & Beauty Spa to the neighbouring recreational facilities. I was pretty much impressed with the service received and friendly staff which did not hesitate one bit to assist me in any way.... More
