    I, along with the Amathole U16B Hockey team, booked accommodation at the Riverview Lodge from the 26th-30th of June. The food was great, and the boys really enjoyed mixing with boys from other teams. There was a really calm vibe amongst all of the staff...More

    Riverview Lodge is a great place for large groups. Was comfortable and affordable. Don't expect 5 star. This is a backpackers lodge but is all one needs for a good night's rest. Stayed for the weekend with a group of friends. Friendly staff.
