    The kitchen staff was very friendly and food excellent. Only bad thing was that the WIFI was down. It is a really nice place with a pool we would recommend this place to our friends when thay are in Riversdal.

    We stayed there in September last year and had absolutely no problem in booking. I booked on line and we had a large room for the two of us. The connecting room was free so we could have had that as well.
