The Riviera Hotel in Velddrif provides an affordable and pleasant breakaway to the Westcoast. The "almost family" atmosphere creates the feeling of belonging. The staff is friendly and polite and during the meal sessions the servicing is prompt with always a little light chatter. I, however, have to highlight the scenery on the Berg River where one can have nice cocktails followed by sumptuous seafood from a nice menu. Well done people!

After a long lockdown, I was keen to visit Velddrif's Riviera Hotel Bar and Restaurant facilities for some much needed social interaction. Found them to be super Covid compliant, while remaining attentive and very welcoming...total peace-of-mind while enjoying great prices at the bar at a time when many others are recouping pandemic losses by increasing prices. I will be returning. A professional experience in a safe environment.

The location and amenities are good. Unfortunately the same cannot be said about the rooms.We wanted to cancel after viewing the room, as a result of the smell. We were then offered another room that smelled better, but unfortunately the rooms are very dated. The carpets in both rooms we saw are stained and degrades the whole room. My suggestion, rip out the carpets, put in nice tiles and then you can increase your room rates.

Only spent one night there as we were road-tripping but we were very comfortable as a family of five.
Two adults and three children slept very comfortably in a lovely sized chalet where we never felt cramped.
Food was very good and tasty, even the youngest picky eater enjoyed his food.
Would easily be able to spend many days there without any discomfort, also the views from the verandas onto the vlei are spectacular.
Very family friendly with friendly staff and management, thank you.

Good overnight stay. Breakfast included in the price. However, the menu variety was limited and expensive.A pity as this 2 star Hotel could have a lot of potential by offering an inexpensive good choice on their menu.
At the end of the day.its the food that makes you come back or not

We had such an amazing stay, it is very peaceful and right next to a lake/dam. You could literally sit and watch the sun come up from your chalet or next to the damn. We had a small issue with our chalet but they came out and assisted us immediately. Overall good service, chalets are pretty decent. The best part was being received at reception, they are very well put together and extremely accommodating. Everyone/anyone who loves vacations/breakaways knows that if the reception at a place is horrible, the rest of your stay would be too. I can't fault Riviera Hotel & Chalets on anything ! I immediately booked another breakaway on our way out, see you in 4 weeks !

the shower head was leaking and we had to hang a towel over the shower head to prevent water spraying everywhere. There was a group of very noisy people screaming outside our room. The OK bazaars that is situated over the road from the Hotel had a lot of unsavoury characters hanging around outside,we did not feel safe going there. The restaurant staff were friendly and efficient and did their work very well...thank you

Riviera Hotel hosted the 2024 Skink Swartland dinner and travelling from Cape Town we decided to stay at the venue. The entire experience, from making the booking, check in and the stay was easy, friendly and great! On top of this, the hotel provided for a memorable celebration of the great Swartland wines, paired with a wonderful menu! Thanks for a visit which was well worth the travel!

The "disabled" chalet is very suitable for someone in a wheelchair.. It is also in the best position as it is very close to the river and abundant bird life plus the mooring for the boat for wonderful evening cruises on the tidal upper estuary. All the Hotel staff were charming and
extremely helpful in every respect. If there was a little problem they came immediately to fix it. They even carried our disabled son onto and off the boat.

The place was stunning and clean and the views were amazing. We had such a good family weekend as we felt so spoilt throughout our entire stay. It was so safe that my son could go fishing on his own without me worrying.
