The rooms were clean and functional - nothing fancy or elaborate. The breakfast was a plus, as was the proximity to town.

I had booked my parents in at Rivierbos this past weekend. They are pensioners, so although they aren't demanding customers, they prefer a quiet, private space.They were pleased with everything - peaceful location near the river, pleasant garden area, clean, well-appointed room and good breakfast.

We had a function in Dorp Street and were looking for an affordable B&B, walking distance from the event. Rivierbos was perfect for our quick in and out. The room was spacious and clean and everything we needed. We felt welcome from the moment we walked through the door. Great stay and definitely recommended. They have an awesome selection of teas at the breakfast buffet.
