As we had got out of our car, we were warmly greeted & welcomed & shown to our room. We arrived at about 6:30pm & as they don't have dinner, we were offered their snack tray which was brought to our room. The tray came filled with all sorts of delicious foods - quiches, chicken wings, an array of cheeses,...

Cannot justify in words the wonderful overnight stay we had at La Rivieria. All the rooms were fully booked out but we were lucky enough to be accommodated in a most exquisite two bedroomed self-contained cottage overlooking a beautiful dam. Luxury at it's very best. We only stayed the night but my wife and I could easily have stayed for...

We loved our stay here. A squeaky clean, stylish establishment. Beautiful rooms; spacious and light. Breakfast was superb and served in a coffee/gift shop to die for. This is worth a visit and an excellent stop en route to the Garden Route

What a find! Total attention to detail, super clean, friendly service in this beautiful French paradise. Fully stocked kitchen in the cottage, both bedrooms on-suite and very comfortable and beautiful furniture. Beautiful river views and very quiet. Definitely highly recommended if you are visiting Aliwal or pass by.

Service is good and place wonderful. I think breakfast place can be better cause is a bit far from the rooms. On rainy days it can be a real problem. Rooms are clean and the surroundings very tidy. It's worth to be visited again.

We had a beautiful room overlooking the dam (room 4) and apart from the air-con which gave us some hassles but we managed to fix it, the room was beautifully decorated, with good linen and a full bathroom. The reception was very warm and friendly and the breakfast was standard but fresh and tasty. The breakfast is served close to...

What a refreshing stop over in the middle of a heat wave! The owner does not spare on quality of anything - the best appliance , bedding and everything else. The unit is well equipped and the hostess is warm and welcoming. I got the feeling, this is not only about making money with minimal effort, but rather about true...
