A river flowing through it….
River Place Lodge joins Guvon Signature Collection
Guvon Hotels & Spas like keeping you guessing what they will be doing next! This all started some 30 years back with the Scottish themed Glenburn Lodge and then a five-star fly-fishing haven opened up on the others side of the Swartkops Mountain in Muldersdrift. Soon after the sound of pinging golf balls and roaring lions were added to this ever-growing portfolio. What does Guvon Hotels and Spas have up their sleeve next?
Nothing beats a venue situated in tranquil lush surrounding and with the Hennops River flowing through it, you could be forgiven for thinking you are in the middle of nowhere. In fact, this is River Place Lodge, conveniently located just 20 minutes from both Fourways and Centurion.
