Room was more than expected and had a nice view. Beds slept ok. Wifi wouldn't work unfortunately. Overall, a very pleasant stay. Would definitely choose this hotel again in the future.

The River Hotel Southport is a hidden gem tucked away in a residential area. It’s a new, smaller hotel and only one building was open while we were there. I believe they are still building the second one. The lady at check in was friendly and informative. The room had a cute balcony with a view of the river. It offered a kitchenette with a refrigerator, dishwasher and stove. The room was very clean and comfortable. I actually didn’t toss the blanket from the bed on the floor like I usually do. There was a pool in the back of the hotel by the river. There was also a locked gate to a small beach area that had a sign that said “Danger. Beware of alligator!” We didn’t go past the gate but we did enjoy the view of the river from there! Overall we recommend and will stay there again if ever in the area.

Thank you Kristina for the review of your stay. Although we don't have a 'resident alligator', once we had a sighting (well over a year ago), we found it necessary to post signs. We hope to see you again when you're in the area. Management & Team

Liked that it was right on the water, not in a noisey neighbourhood, Staff always took care of our rooms, plenty of towels and internet worked flawlessly. Views were great, both from the balcony as well as on the private dock. Pool was clean and the building was kept tidy. Look forward to our next visit.

Los horarios de los restaurantes cierran muy temprano, todos requieren de reservas, las áreas verdes requieren de mantenimiento y no hay playa frente al hotel! Por lo demás la estadía fue muy buena, las habitaciones son fantásticas completamente diferentes y muy limpias El hotel tiene mis ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Definitivamente volveré
