Great Stay

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.

The rooms, food, view and everything was way above average the staff were super friendly and accommodating many hotels in Durban should take a page out of their book. Everything was perfect.

Just an enjoyable experience. Great vibe by the pool on friday evening with live music. Really good bar and friendly service (I did have to call for a waitress however it is nice not to have staff members hovering, so I think it is intentional and it was easy to be noticed). The rooms are neat, tidy and really clean. The location perfect between Durban City and Durban North, Umhlanga and Gateway Access is a quick 10min and the beach is close by.

Well done!!!
During this pandemic we have always worried about where we will stay in an emergency!! Riverside has been our choice prior to lock down and has not failed us yet again, we felt safe from the time we entered until we departed.

Great COVID protocols, Great price, Great service at reception

We hosted my dad's 60th birthday at the business centre. Mlungisi, Mayuri and their team were hands on from the go. The food was delicious and on point, everything was beyond expectations.
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!
