River Place was our chosen venue for our December wedding. Having visited the venue the previous year for a delicious lunch and site visit our hearts were set on the location. On the banks of the Hennops River, offering chapel, reception at ElFiume and accomodation facilities. Riani, Ken and team saw to our every need. Load shedding didn't hamper our special day and along with our guests took it in our stride. Generators ensured all ran smoothly. The atmosphere and location led to some beautiful photographs, beautiful reception on the deck under the trees with the river flowing. We even had Ivan, resident saxophonist play at the chapel and reception, making a pleasant change to the regular Dj. With the amount of guests, 120, there will always be some hiccups, but nothing that was not swiftly attended to by the team. Five star menu. Comfortable accomodation for all guests, saw us enjoying our wedding well into the wee hours. Wouldn't change it for the world, and look forward to enjoying a wonderful lunch at ElFiume real soon. Highly recommended for Saturday or Sunday lunch!

We attended a function at a nearby venue, which could not accommodate us for the night and stayed at River Place. We were assured that the guard would be on duty at the gate until midnight. When we returned at 11.15, there was no guard. we waited and hooted, with no result and then phoned the River Place number on the sign board and invoice, only to find that this number is no longer in operation.We then phoned the restaurant number and reached someone who eventually got a message to the guard and who then opened up for us at 11.50. All this time we were sitting next to the R511, with taxis and other traffic from time to time. The next morning we found there was no kettle in the room. At breakfast, only served from 9.15, the waiter apologised for the mess up the next morning. Upon departing, the reception was deserted, offering us no opportunity to vent our frustration.

Room Tip: Hope to get "upgraded"

We traveled down to Gauteng for a year end function that was hosted by River Place. We stayed over and was treated very well. The only problem was to get the luggage to and from the room as the parking is quite far from the rooms. GREAT food.... GREAT hosts.... beautiful and peaceful.

I bought a Groupon voucher - dinner, bed and breakfast. My reservation was handled well. I upgraded to a stone clad suite which was very nice indeed and well furnished. Our romantic dinner was excellent - great food and service - in the al Fiume restaurant which is on the river. Breakfast was very slow indeed - which was a bit disappointing - we waited three quarters of an hour for our hot meal. Boase and Charles (two waiters) were most friendly, helpful and couldnt do enough for us - compliments to them. They apologised for the delay which was not their fault but in the kitchen. There were only 3 other couples staying the night we were there - so very quiet - but just what we wanted. JB and Christine

Room Tip: The stone-clad cottage/suite A was very nice indeed - just needs a mat in the bath for safety reasons.
