My husband had booked us a stay here for the weekend as we needed to be in Vereeniging for a kart race. I must confess to not even being able to pronounce the name of the town, so approached the weekend with some trepidation! What a pleasant surprise...
All the staff at the hotel were super friendly and attentive, and couldn't be more helpful in every way. The kids club opened early for our children, the bag man wheeled the kids round on a trolley keeping them amused while we checked in, and the helpful reservations lady created a family room for us from an executive suite as all the rest were booked up.
Food was good, service always excellent in the restaurant, you really felt like they were on top of their game. Well trained staff that would be a credit to a 5 star hotel anywhere.
We topped it off with a cruise down the Vaal, with smiling children gleefully towed behind the boat. Happy children = happy parents. Well done Riviera on Vaal, we shall be happy to come back another time.
Top tip...book early to get into the spa, it's busy on weekends.
