We liked the air-conditioning and the comfort of the beds. The restaurant next to the river was also very relaxing. Very good food and cocktails as well. Will definitely visit again

If you like the hot summer days and peaceful nights this is the place for you.

Setting near the River
Blocked shower and unswept room so we stood on thorns in the room. Also hairdryer cable is too short so it's awkward to use the dryer

Perfect stay!

The room was very spacious and comfortable with a lovely bathroom. We had a fantastic dinner at the restaurant by the river.

No value for money

The DSTV channels were not working. They tried to fix it but couldn't. The air conditioning unit leaked water on the bed and we had to change rooms. Eventually down graded from a suite. The food took long to prepare. The waitressing staff were slow and needs training. The coffee and sugar we're not replaced in the room. We had to ask for them to be replaced. The room was not cleaned properly. It was dusty. Overall not a pleasant stay.

River Place is a very nice place to stay in ,we all loved it but we were unfortunate because there were water pressure problem,and they tried to fix it
Their rooms and the place itself

Pleasant short weekend break

Proximity to Joburg was a plus for a short getaway. The river side dining area was pleasant. Dinner and breakfast over looking water. Dinner was tasty.
Was booking into incorrect room category. Checkin wasn't friendly. Clumsy service at restaurant.

No intercoms in the rooms incase I need to talk or order something to eat in the rooms

Little paradise just a short hop from Fourways, Johannesburg.

Staff were super friendly while serving us like royalty. Food (breakfast & dinner) was top quality. Location is tranquil & picturesque, probably even more so during summer months.
Suite could be improved by installing flat screen LCD/LED TV's. The old box TV's don't do justice considering a lot of money must have been spent on furniture/fittings/decor. Also some background music at the dining area would improve ambiance.

Excellent stay at this stunning lodge!

This was by far the best stay I have experienced in this category of accommodation! There is something very special about River Place Lodge and the people there, if you are looking for a romantic weekend away or just a break from the hustle and bustle of the city, this is definitely the place for you! The rooms are gorgeous and quaint, offering you all the amenities you need with a lovely view of the hills from the comfort of your bed.. The staff cater to your every need and are incredibly accommodating! We had the lamb shank for supper with some tailor made cocktails, the food was perfection! Best lamb shank I have personally ever had! My boyfriends birthday was on the Sunday, the manager organised a plate with chocolate writing on it for him and delicious pastries to celebrate the occasion :) Breakfast was included, I cannot describe how generous the portions are here, we received a full English breakfast, tea/coffee and juice. In addition to this, cheese and ham selections were offered as well as muesli and yogurt.The venue offers exciting hiking trails and proper relaxation to its visitors! I cannot wait to visit again.. Thanks to everyone who made this such a memorable stay :)

Disappointed in River place country estate

The setting is fantastic next to the Hennopsriver
The walkways is uncomfatable to walk on and you have to carry your own luggage to you room with is quite far from the parking. The kitchen staff was very loud and played loud music in the kitchen during witch was suppose to be a nice quiet dinner next to the river. we had to wait an hour for someone to help us settle the bill and check out.

expected more.

Im in a wheelchair and The ground and restaurant staff were so helpful and friendly.
I expected more and almost felt deceived by the expectations. It says the room overlook the river. You can not see the river and have a view of an old building in front of you. I understand the steps up into the room but asked abt the room being wheelchair friendly and was not told abt a step up into the toilet or that the bath is enclosed with glass for a shower

The staff were friendly and treated us well.

The staff were friendly and treated us well. The rooms are comfortable and clean. We didn't experience the true beauty of the place and we will be going back again.

This review is of our Sunday lunch at their Al Fiume restaurant. For a four star establishment the restaurant requires a little refinement. Dirty seat cushions, ants on tables, inattentive staff andwrong bills does not make a pleasant experience.

River Place Country Lodge Being that time of the year, one could easily dread the big company year-end function if located at a less than savoury location. Luckily for me, our company’s year-end function was held at the River Place Country Lodge This spacious venue slopes down towards the Hennops River and offers conference facilities as well as lovely B&B units. Being greeted by a very friendly (and patient as he signed each person in) security guard at the main gate is always a pleasure and already a prediction of the kind of service which once can expect from this venue. All the staff that we had encountered was very friendly and helpful. The huge deck next to the river served as our location for lunch where we enjoyed a buffet lunch which was freshly prepared, extensive and suitable to everyone’s liking. The waiters were tirelessly serving the guests with drinks and constantly clearing tables and providing clean ash trays for the smokers in the group. I would highly recommend this setting for anyone who needs a venue which easily accommodated a large group of people and provided constant great service at all times.
