Riverside is a decent place to stay for the amount paid... The place could use some up keep to make it more appealing to the eye... Pictures on the website also need to be updated to provide a true representation of the different rooms and facilities.

I was very well received and introduced on my arrival. The room was very clean, tidy and was very peaceful. I was impressed by the tranquility of the estate regardless of roads close by. In general all staff was very friendly and helpful.

We stayed a few days at Riverside Estates, and we enjoyed our stay very much. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Our kids loved the dogs, and the swimming pool. Beautiful decorated spacious rooms. Very clean. Breakfast was good. We had delicious cheese cakes in the garden. World Of Birds is the neighbor! We definitely would recommend Riverside Estates.

Lovely big, clean rooms. Garden is amazing with playground. Super friendly staff and six dogs keep the kids amused for hours. Breakfast is great. Good atmosphere, feels very secluded but also close to town.
