Latest Reviews

I wouldn't have stayed anywhere if it was not at Riverside Hotel. The fact that you have a restaurant at your premises offering lunch and dinner and a bar on the premises makes it feel like home. I have stayed at Riverside almost six times already. The pool was clean - keep it up as my kids are swimmers.
The only thing that was just a small oversight on your housekeeping staff was that they forgot to put sanitary plastic bags for sanitary pads and the Colgate that I requested from housekeeping was dry and had to request another one.
The room was fantastic and keep up with whites. The staff was excellent.I am definitely coming back with my family.

From Durban International Airport, as you leave the airport, turn right at the first set of traffic lights.
Turn right again when you see the Durban sign.
Drive straight along the freeway and take the Esplanade off-ramp.
Turn left into Aliwal Street; continue straight along, Aliwal Street will become NMR Avenue and then Northway as you cross over the Umgeni (Athlone Bridge).
The Riverside Hotel is situated on the right.
