                  We had a wonderful stay at De Doornkraal Historic Country House. The hospitality, service and food were amazing. Christopher Peppas went out of his way to ensure that all our needs were met. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. The accommodation was perfect for our needs. If passing through Riversdale again, we would definitely return.

                  We had a wonderful time at De Doornkraal! The Deluxe Room was very quaint and luxurious, and I must commend Christopher and his team on the brilliant dinner he prepared for us! We will definitely return!
