Our stay at the Riverside was pleasant enough, and I would recommend the hotel to anyone looking for a decent place to stay in Durban. I think it is an ideal spot for business travellers but does have some downfalls. The location is fantastic and the staff were outstanding. They were friendly, eager to help and we had a seamless check in. Room service was fast and friendly. The hotel is old and needs some attention, especially in the rooms. Our bathroom was not clean, and the shower was full of mould. I must note that we saw that they are currently in the process of refurbishing the hotel, i just HOPE they redo the bathrooms soon. We stayed at The Riverside in 2008 and encountered the same problem with mould etc.. so it seems to be an ongoing problem.
All in all, a pleasant stay and the staff's friendly smiles made up for any unhappiness we felt.
