The riviera hotel is right on the banks of the vaal river, what a beautiful location.

This hotel really gave me the feeling of a peaceful and secure environment.The iconic Petit Verdot Floating Restaurant was a fabulous way to have dinner.


One of our best hotel experiences, prompt, friendly service - accomodation was neat and clean and the food as good as any excellent restaurant!
