          We had a pleasant stay at the Rivierbos Guest House. We were very happy with our room and with the great service we received from the staff. I would definitely go back, a great stay.

          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.

          The guest house is affordable, clean and comfortable.It is in a safe, quiet and friendly environment.It is ideal for the tourist who just needs a central place to stay from where he can go on trips or explore Stellenbosch.
