              It is impossible to have a decent night's sleep in this hotel. The noise is unbearable and the staff are unable to contain the noise from inconsiderate guests. Used to be a quiet, tranquil hotel....not anymore. Furthermore, sound proofing in the rooms is atrocious. This place would have been excellent value for money, if not for the above complaints.

              South African Hotels”

              We're over from Kent UK. We initially booked in for 7 days and extended our stay by a further 3 days because of the hotel surroundings, cleanliness and most of the staff. Although the Staff in the cocktail bar are really poor and abrupt, it seems that they're are doing you a favor by letting you purchase a drink and both barmen are close to being considered rude. The restaurant is great and the staff bend over backward to help and make you feel at home. Surprising though we have never been greeted by the few white staff who consist of The Manager and another two food and beverage managers who work varied shifts. I can now understand why there is a need for affirmative action and the need to make white personal the last choice when hiring. We recommend this establishment.

              We enjoyed our break. We where looking for a short getaway just to relax and we got exactly that at the Riverside. I loved the outside bar area, was the perfect place to chill while my husband enjoyed sport. That long island ice tea will bring me back. I hope by the time we come back, your menus will be sorted, as that was the only issue we had. You guys where changing menus and the waiters where not too clear on availability. Wasn't a big issue though. Thanks

              Great stay overall, lovely place. ”

              Check in and out was easy and fast. Breakfast was good. Cannot really fault the place on anything. I would have liked to see an ice dispenser machine on one of the floors though as is common with most 3 & 4 star hotels.... in this case a bucket of ice has to be purchased through the kitchen for R10. Overall stay was great and I highly recommend to leisure travelers.

              Rude restaurant front desk”

              We generally prefer eating breakfast out of the hotels we stay but it just so happened that the Agoda online deal included breakfast. I went down to the breakfast restaurant and asked for a takeaway latte as we would not be eating there - my boyfriend spotted the pancakes and so we changed plans and decided to have a sit down breakfast. When we let the lady at the front desk know , she gave us a tongue lashing of note ,about how a takeaway latte is not included in the breakfast option- I explained that I didn’t have a breakfast drink because she actually gave me the takeaway but was nonetheless happy to pay for it - She didn’t want me to pay but continued shouting. Needless to say we didn’t eat breakfast(that was paid for) there the next day. Nobody wants to wake up to unnecessary coffee drama that early in the morning-especially if ur paying for it!

              There were no cons. We felt so at home, we had a lovely stay at Aha. The staff were so welcoming and kind all the time. The cleanliness was beyond amazing. I am in awe at how this is not a 5 star as yet. Thank you so much, for a lovely vacation. We enjoyed every last bit.

              The service is super. Staff is friendly and always willing to help. The lady who was a waitress for outdoor section was extremely humane, friendly, always serving with a smile even when she was the only one and the guests were really above her. The breakfast was suoerb. It was for the first time that I found a hotel that loaned yoi cutlery and crockery gratis. It is a pity I did not read the hotel booklet in rhe room thus I missed out in the gym. As a holiday club member I will be using the hotel more, if holidaying in Durban.

              I am certainly going to make this my number one choice in Durban for my weekend get-aways, as from the time you enter the parking, you are welcomed by pleasant security. Then when you enter the reception foyer there an abundant amount of front office staff with big smiles and efficient assistance. The Cafe/Bar staff were not so friendly, especially the male supervisor on duty to say the least. Except Thulani/I think his name was, our waiter that work ed nightshift at he bar was EXCELLENT! After breakfast the next morning, we asked for a later check out and it was gladly confirmed with a smile. WE ARE VERY VERY VERRRRY HAPPY! Did I mention...VERY happy!

              The hotel needs a good clean and replacement of old swollen cupboard doors. It is or enough to paint the door, replace them if they are damaged. Bathroom tile grout black with mound and the area around the bottom of the door of the shower in two room had visible dirt and mound. I found human hair on my clean towels. The dining area roof has numerous black mildew marks from previous damage and the large light fixtures have dirt hanging off them. I watched the dust fall onto the tables. The kitchen area needs a good clean. Knives nod forks on the tables were grimy. The staff were pleasant.
