                                  On arrival we received a very warm and friendly welcoming from the staff who also ensured that we were comfortable and happy. The Guest house is neat, and has a homely but luxurious feel. We arrived in a cozy pre-heated room that had everything from coffee, tea and snacks to hair dryers and a stunning bathroom.From the balcony at our doorstep you’re overlooking the outside pool area which is the perfect place to relax, surrounded by beautiful greenery and a majestic mountain backdrop.The property is situated in a very convenient location, close to all local amenities including restaurants,...

                                  We stayed there for the Two Oceans and what a pleasant surprise to be 500 m from the start! Winner was an absolute marvel, preparing breakfast for us at 5 am. Thank you again.

                                  I loved the environment with the pool and access to the patio.Another plus was the freedom we had within the house i.e.use of the kitchen,storing all our shopping for university residence in the hallway etc!Position to all amenities was great as well.Loved the soooft bath towels!Very enjoyable stay and the fact that we did not have the breakfast option was to our advantage as with two teenage girls in tow we could eat and go in our own time.

                                  Riversong Guest House is a place of tranquility, genuine hospitality and beauty. I couldn't have picked a better place to stay if I'd taken a year to look.
