Review by Noxolo (Pinetown )

Spacious room, very well maintained and Excellent Customer service. However, sound Proof windows can help a lot, since there's a busy road near by and upgrading all the appliances from tv to the lift will definitely make an excellent Impression. Had a blast though.

Review by Peter Masalesa (Pretoria)

We booked 3 rooms for two nights (14 - 16 August 2015), but we were very disappointed with the level of service we have received at this hotel. In the rooms there was no basic stuff like kettle, tea or coffee, in my room there was no toilet paper, I had to buy my own, TV was also very horrible, an old TV with no channels, Telephones are just decorations. We could not sleep as it was extremely noisy through out the night, also the bar on the first floor was very noisy and people were smoking all over the passage. The family rooms were not what was promised us when we made a booking. Lastly as I booked 3 rooms, I requested for the invoice to be split but I was told it was not possible. I think for the money we paid we could have gotten something much better. Please improve your hotel.

I first stayed at the hotel in February and i came back in May then July. It was nice all the time i spend in the hotel. The Cleaning lady the other day she offer to help me with my laundry, it felt like home and the whole staff was friendly especially with me speaking Sotho but they tried to help me as much as they can. I'll will be going back this December to enjoy myself again. Thank you Riviera Hotel, Your the best

Review by Kabelo (Johannesburg )

I really had a great time at the Riviera Hotel, staff are friendly, accomodating and very helpful. The rooms are clean, neat, tidy and their restaurant serves very nice food. There are meter taxis outside to take you wherever you want to go and the hotel view is so relaxing. I would say Riviera Hotel is home away from home and i would definitely recommend it to my friends and would definitely go back. Well done guys!!

Review by Nthabiseng (Pretoria)

I enjoyed my stay and would come back. However we had to drink out and come back late because we were told the bar was for staff members.Next time then allow us to bring our beer so we relax nicely without walking in the early hours outside to have a drink.

Your rooms were kept clean and your restuarant served fresh food and food were served until late for our convenience. There was always taxis available en also there was parking .Thanx for the hospitality.
