The Windsor Park and Durban Country Club golf courses are within easy access of the hotel, while to the north and south lie the splendour of the KwaZulu-Natal Coast.

The International Convention Centre, the new Sun Coast casino complex, and the restaurant district of Morningside are just minutes away, as is the mammoth Gateway Shopping and Entertainment centre and the growing business district of Umhlanga, making the Riverside Hotel an ideal base when visiting Durban.
