    • Older travelers

      A more than friendly and welcoming hostess Helpful as to the use of restaurants and directions Made coffee at 05:00 in the morning because we went hot air ballooning a wonderful wooden deck where ons can sip some wine and a sparkling clean splash pool a healthy Oudtshoorn breakfast leaves you wanting nothing more Overall very good value for money

    • Group of friends

      The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The home had great character and was interesting to explore. The manager was wonderful and took extra time to give us information about activities and local places to visit. Breakfast in the morning was lovely, there were many options to choose from and more than I could have eaten in a week let alone one morning we were there.

      The only downside was the cabin outside let in a lot of noise from the street it is adjacent too and this was quite disruptive late at night and early in the morning.

    • Couple

      Very friendly, cosy log cabin. Wonderful service

      The bathroom was completely open to the bedroom, no window and no ventilation

    • Older travelers

      The staff were friendly and the bed was comfortable. It is situated close to restaurants. The breakfast was fresh and complete. The air conditioning unit in the bedroom was effective and not too noisy . It was fairly cheap .

      There was no door between the bedroom and the bathroom/toilet , just a net curtain. The room had poor natural light . The aspect of the property , just above a small creek meant there were lots of flies and mosquitoes but also nice birds. The whole place was a bit tired and rundown , the outside area could do with a good clean . There was a terrible smell that occasionally came up , I think they need their drains checked.

    • Older travelers

      most surprised on arrival at riverside.the chalet was beautiful every thing possible was made with wood. lovely porch so was able to watch all the weaver birds making their nests.in the trees opposite nice view of rive. there is .off road parking.. easy access to go to the caves and ostrich farms etc. very nice accommodation would recommend riverside to everybody...

      the wood chalets . the views the cleanliness.

    • Older travelers

      Very friendly staff and ideal location in Oudtshoorn for visiting local area. Great views from the terrace. Great breakfast. very comfortable.

      The lack of privacy when using the bathroom. Not a problem though when you've been married for 35 years!

    • Older travelers

      There was a nice outside deck with river and mountain views. Good breakfast

      The room we booked was described as "luxury double with elegant furniture,fireplace, flat screen tv and cd player" We were given a choice of two rooms. The first was small, cramped and dark with an "en suite" across a private corridor. The second seemed larger and lighter but the toilet and other facilities were separated from the bedroom by only a flimsy curtain. We chose the first one, but this was by no means a luxury double. During our stay in South Africa we stayed at 8 different venues. This came last our list in terms of comfort

    • Group of friends

      Pleasant Staff, Good breakfast, Convenient Location, Reasonable Price.

      TV and Kettle did not work. Shower ran between extremes of hat and cold.

    • Older travelers

      Clean. Bed very comfy. Quiet. Nice breakfast.Would stay again

      Room 2 a bit dark but thats mainly the furniture I think. View from room is a wall but thats just the building and cant be helped

    • Couple

      excelent staff, lovely room, very near the centre of the city so no need to drive anywhere

    • Single

      The owner is great but the staff need a little more training, although very friendly. I had great difficulty finding the place after taking the address down from your website so please check as the gps could not locate it which was really frustrating!

    • Older travelers

      The lady who owns the guesthouse is very friendly and helpful in all respects. The location is just off the main street so there are a number of restaurants near by, however, our recommendation would be to give Brian's Grill a big miss. Also its ideally situated for visiting the Cango Caves, Swartsberg Pass, and a number of other attractions. The building has been renovated in Dutch colonial style and while the decor is a bit dark and somewhat overdone with lts of very old dark heave furniture the place still has a certain old world charm about it that is added to by the owners character and personality. Friendly, Friendly, Friendly.

      In our room (No.3) the en-suite is open plan in the bedroom i.e. only a curtain separates the en-suite. Old dark furniture, including a massive built in wardrobe which was a bit of a wreck. The breakfast room is quite cluttered and there are only three tables catering for 3 couples. So, bigger parties can either wait or eat outside on the decking (weather permitting). To be honest the breakfast wasn't great and the service was a bit chaotic.

    • Older travelers

      the impretion on internet site is very good ,but the reality poor the room is big without heating ,the shawer dirty,

    • Couple

      Its a nice guest house - the welcoming is very good, both from the owner and staff. The rooms are great, apart from the toilet being in clear view of the bed without a door. The outside pool area is lovely. Stay was comfortable. I'd return

      Open toilet in room... no good if you are a private person or a new couple or a mom/daughter combo.

    • Single

      The owner/hostess is very friendly and professional. I loved my acomodation, and the wooden deck is the best place to sit out and eat or have tea.
