Riverview Lodge

6 Reviews
Sleeps 640 in 80 rooms

Riverview is our main guest lodge and is a lovely old Victorian building in trendy historical Observatory, the student Mecca of Cape Town. During the Victorian era when it was built and named, it did indeed have a view of the Liesbeeck River, but as the suburb developed over the years, we lost the river view. However, we do still have a lovely view of our famous Table Mountain and Devils Peak. We pride ourselves on providing clean, comfortable and affordable accommodation, in a charmingly decorated spacious building, which has a cosy home from home atmosphere. As we specialise in large group bookings and can accommodate up to 120 people, we are ideal for school groups, sports teams, Universities, Technicons, N.G.O.’s, large budget tour groups and school groups. We are on the doorstep of numerous restaurants, shops and pubs, the famous Newlands Rugby and Cricket Stadiums and a great night life in the student heart of Cape Town, while the waterfront, Table Mountain, Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens, our numerous glorious beaches, the City Centre, C.T. International Airport, and Cape Town’s 2010 Soccer World Cup stadium at Green point are literally just minutes away.

Riverview has 35 rooms, comprising a mix of singles, twins and bunkrooms. We have T.V. Lounges (which groups can use for their exclusive use), and dining rooms. We also have several patios and a barbecue/braai terrace under the palms. The communal Bathrooms are separated into male and female only bathrooms, and our bunkrooms are always ‘same sex’ rooms.
