Rooms are clean with crisp white top quality linen, sherry, nougat, rusks, tea coffee, hairdryer. Very tastefully decorated. Beautiful view of Pond from patio, lovely well manicured lawns and gardens. Friendly staff. Breakfast is offered. Will definitely be back!

We stayed for two nights at La Riviera, when you arrive and see the beautiful french styled garden you know the rooms are going to be gorgeous. Our room was just that, albeit we did have problems with the water (there was none), so we moved room and then the TV did not work so we moved rooms again, the...

You guys were absolutely amazing. So nice to have you there for 2 days. Sorry for all the hiccups. Although we had to move you around a few times you were so amazing about the whole thing. Love to have you again. Such a pleasure.

This is our second stay at La Riviera, having stayed over on our road trip to the Eastern Cape last year as well. It did not disappoint. The rooms are well appointed and the attention to detail (tea and coffee with home baked rusks and nougat) as well as spacious and welcoming. The hostesses are always very accommodating and the...

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.
