“In love with Riverplace”
Reviewed 4 March 2015

We had our wedding Seremony and Reception at River Place Country Estate and it was the best day of our lives! Apart from it being the most beautiful Venue i have ever had the pleasure of visiting, the staff and the quality of service was immaculate. Everyone at river place went out of their way to ensure that the planning of our special day, as well as the day its self was stress free and an absolute success. My guests can not stop speaking about the amazing food that River Place offered as well as the helpfulness and friendliness of the waiters.
The rooms are so beautiful and luxurious, making everyone that stayed over feel like royalty. I can not even begin to thank everyone at Riverplace enough for everything that they did for us. Your venue is gorgeous, i will forever remain in love with the scenery and everything about Riverplace. We will most definitely recommend your venue to everyone.

Room Tip: The Suites are exquisite

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"

Thank you Alet and team for the great service not just on the day but your assistance in putting the function together from day one. Everyone that attended has a super amazing time.

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.
