We have just returned from a hen weekend accommodated by bob and his lovely team! I was lucky and did not have to organise everything and just got to enjoy being a guest!
Upon arrival although much later than anticipated due to the jewel that is the m25 we were met with smiles and food!
There was 17 of us and we went for the catered option, the food was lovely and there was enough choice for those who are slightly fussy and also bob and the team made a gorgeous tofu curry for our vegan pals. Also the price was very reasonable.
The accommodation is basic but extremely well kept and the beds are super comfy which is always surprising especially on a bunk bed! There were adequate bathrooms and showers which were all clean and very useable.
Bob, himself was the nicest and most accommodating host! All the team were lovely but big shout out to bob. He arranged taxis for us, made sure we weren't overcharged and also provided lots of information about the local area and gave us good ideas for beautiful walks! The accommodation is situated right by the river (hence the name) and there is some beautiful walks on your doorstep.
Overall, good accommodation, great location and fantastic hosts! Thanks so much to bob and all the team and the fantastic bridesmaids who organised it all.
We stayed here as part of a hen party which not all places are willing to accept. Bob was not only willing but also fully supportive of our crew of 18.
From booking til staying Bob stayed in contact suggesting a number of food options for the ladies and answering our groups endless questions. The food was great and they did a fab job of suiting the needs of vegans, food intolerant's and the plain fussy. They even popped the left overs in the fridge for us so we could have a post clubbing snack!
The rooms are from 2 in a room to 6/7 per room. Although not all the rooms had en-suites it worked out for our group of 18 who split across 6 rooms that we had a bathroom per room which helped when we had limited time to get ready between activities we had arranged. The rooms are all tastefully decorated and for what we paid all the ladies were really impressed.
Location - 15 minute cab to Swansea for which Bob has a regular taxi contact which offered good rates and were really friendly chaps.
As with most the reviews on here the real attraction at River View Is Bob. He is truly a wonderful host who goes the extra mile to try to customise your stay to suit your parties needs!
We all want to go back!
Group of 20 of us stayed here for a stag do. Loads of space and comfy beds. Plus Bob makes a mean fry up, even if you're feeling a little too delicate to eat it all some mornings.
17 of us stayed for a stag weekend and had great time with the place to ourselves. There were plenty of single beds for everyone. You can go self-catering but we chose the catered option and the built in (but separated) Thai restaurant serves fabulous food! Allowed us to just have fun, eat and drink well, without any of the cooking and washing up fuss. Bob and his team were most accommodating and excellent hosts. The back garden is huge and has a nice deck area. If you’re researching places as extensively as I did, this place should be on your shortlist; great for families or parties, it certainly has my recommendation. Thanks Bob & team!
We have just had the most wonderful weekend at Riverview , We hired the whole accommodation for a party of 14. The service and hospitality supplied by Bob and his team was second to none.
I can not thank Bob enough for making this such a perfect weekend.
I would recommend this Hotel and restaurant to anyone who asked !
Looking forward to our next visit
On 13/05/17, a group of 13 of us stayed at River View for one night, as part of a stag incorporating a day mountain biking in Afan Valley.
Off the bat, Bob and his team were incredibly helpful and accommodating with our plans. He was very flexible with our arrival time, dietary needs and (frustratingly!) fluctuating group size.
River View itself is excellently located for South Wales especially Brecon and nearby places. Bob and his team provided excellent food that went down superbly amongst our group with absolutely no complaints from any of us for either dinner or breakfast.
Facilities wise, the communal spaces are brilliant with ample space both in and out door for our group and more than enough essentials provided for our use such as glasses, mugs, plates, fridges, tea and coffee etc. The bed rooms upstairs are well sized and clean, each bed with power sockets and fresh linen and towels provided. There are, I believe, seven shower room and toilets all of which again are clean and well looked after.
None of our group had any complaints after our stay at River View, and I would be more than happy to strongly recommend it to other people - or to have stayed for more nights!
Bob is an excellent host who genuinely seems to aim to please his guests, and I wish him all the best for the future.
Thanks for your help with running the weekend, Bob!
From the very first contact Robert was incredibly helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and regular contact was made before the event.
We took over the whole venue and the Restaurant was solely for our usage during the evening.
During the afternoon we had free reign to prepare for the party, decorations and table settings welcomed.
The bedrooms were clean and comfortable......many laughs being created as bunk bed options were available!
Ample bathrooms and showers.
Clean towels and bedding.
The chef was incredible assisting people who had not eaten Thai before to make their choices.
The communal area allowed for people to socialise and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere.
Breakfast was food a plenty!
A fantastic venue for a group gathering. Very laid back allowing flexibility for 'your own' party ideas.
Thank you Robert and staff. You made Simon's 50th Birthday a wonderful celebration and allowed us to make fabulous memories.
