I am extremely pleased to advise you of the marvelous service that I received from Riverside staff. From the security at the gates to our check out. I was impressed. A special mention to Muzi, Dinesh and Salomon who went above and beyond to make our stay a most pleasurable one. I look forward to staying with Riverside again in the future.

Problems at AHA Riverside
There were many 'little things' that were missing - no tissues in the room; no vanity packs, but most disgusting of all there were huge cockroaches

rated has four star but should be a three star hot
location,spa on site,car parking
My stay at the hotel was good,but going for breakfast was a bad experience,due to flies settling,on all the open food and fruit,and also there pool side bar was not stocked,to meet their drinks menu.

Not up to standard, will not stay at this place ag
Nothing to say
Was not happy with the standard. I reported the condition of the bath( Tap) to the duty Manager and nothing was done. Whiles walking in the passage saw a rat, reported it to the Duty manager, I am not sure what was done. Had no feedback.
