Accommodation in Durban
The Riverside Business Centre
The staff are extremely friendly, accommodating and hands on. They always willing to assist in any way to make your stay comfortable and it seemed as if we knew them forever. She provided us with yummy meals to cater for our needs at the kitchen and not forgetting Thulani who checked us in and made sure we were comfortable. The rooms are very neat and tidy as well as spacious. You guys know the meaning of excellent customer service! We were so impressed with the service that we had to book in again at checkout for our Valentine's / Anniversary weekend and once again all great comments and recommendations! The Saturday prawn special was a winner! Well done to the team on your outstanding work and service. Riverside feels like home!
We were extremely satisfied with the service he provided us, from being a warm, welcoming presence the day we arrived, and helping us familiarise ourselves with the hotel amenities, to being absolutely accommodating and hands on in our daily meal requests.
He understood our concerns regarding halal food preparation and cross-contamination with non-halal food in the kitchen, answered all our queries and implemented our suggestions. He ensured that we were served personally by him and that all our needs and requirements were met.
His passion and enthusiasm for his job, as well as his pleasant demeanour, were noted and appreciated by us and definitely served to enhance our experience at the hotel.
We, therefore, wish to commend Mannie on his excellent service and would like to bring his customer relation skills to your notice.
We hope to see Mannie again in our future visits to your establishment.

Loved staying at the Riverside Hotel, what made them different to any other hotel was the hospitality. Love the front desk ladies when I checked in. My favorite has to be Breakfast in the mornings. So much warmth and welcome vibes.
One of the best places we ever stayed. Safe and very good location. The security is excellent. The friendliness of all the staff was outstanding. The view was exquisite. The room was clean and neat.
