It was calming to get back every evening from a hard day at work to come back to the hotel whose staff were very friendly and professional and they had smiles and greeted me as if I was one of the family. Room was cleaned...

As I have mentioned I was disappointed by a lady waitress who refused to give my wife a drink even though she could see that my wife was using a walking stick I could not complain at the venue because I was surrounded my my fellow business associates.My appetite just collapsed.

Very impressed with friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful setting. We were there for a swimming gala, and they moved breakfast earlier to accommodate swimmers and parents. Rooms comfortable and very clean, in-room dining food excellent. Highly recommended.

We have travelled to the Vaal Triangle several times. The hotels we have stayed at, can at best be called average. The Riverside Sun was a welcome surprise. The staff at the front desk were super efficient and friendly. The rooms were great - well laid out, clean and modern. The breakfast was excellent. We certainly know where we are...

I haven't been there in a long time, to see the upgrades to the rooms were nice. Very classy and very modern. I always enjoy my stay there and the breakfasts are awesome as well. I will keep going back there, not too far from home and a lovely hotel for a short break away.
