Southern Spoor is pleased to announce that River Place in Gauteng has joined the company’s portfolio of unique, owner-run hotels and lodges. With a variety of facilities and venues spread over 18 hectares of scenic mountain valley bushland just north of Fourways, River Place is a picturesque venue for romantic getaways, gastronomic experiences, weddings, special events and conferences.

Taking full advantage of its prime riverfront position along the banks of the Hennops River, River Place is renowned for its al Fiume Italian restaurant and Mediterranean-inspired cuisine. A second restaurant along the river, Serendipity Café Restaurant & Deck, also has sprawling lawns for a picnic, while the Rock Boma offers al fresco fireside dining.

The River View lapa-style venue and the Mountain View stone farmhouse are private function rooms that can be used for conferences, weddings or special events for up to 60 and 120 guests respectively. Both venues have views of the surrounding hills and deck areas.

Accommodation comprises 16 deluxe cottage-style rooms and three stone-clad suites. The light, airy rooms are comfortably furnished and have DStv, full en-suite bathrooms and private patios. The luxurious suites are located closer to the river and have king-sized beds and separate lounge areas.

Anita Foxcroft, owner of Southern Spoor Marketing, says that the team is excited to be representing a product that offers guests a variety of experiences, from fine dining and romantic getaways to corporate conferencing and teambuilding. “It is always a pleasure to work with a venue like River Place that complements our portfolio of owner-run properties and fits the ethos of focusing on guest experiences,” says Anita. “It is one of the few establishments in Gauteng that takes full advantage of its position along the river, and is easily accessible from both Johannesburg and Pretoria. We look forward to working with Andrew and his team to re-establish River Place as one of Jo’burg’s premier dining, event and accommodation destinations.”

River Place Managing Partner, Andrew Banks, comments, “We are delighted to be included in the Southern Spoor portfolio and look forward to broadening our marketing reach through their team of industry professionals. Our boutique property requires a multi-faceted, dynamic approach to effectively reach our niche clients and valued guests – we believe Anita and her team are uniquely positioned to assist us in our growth journey,” says Andrew.
