It's central, it's lovely decorated, the owners are always open for a chat and giving recommendations. And the little extras are fantastic, such as the cold water for the night, or the welcome drink at 5.

Friendly reception comfortable b&b with good deck to sit relax and drink a glass of wine. Hostess gave us good advice for tours and visiting local attractions. Some good restaurants nearby with nostalgia being the best. Would come back to riverside in the future.

It is a really nice and lovely place. The staff were very helpful and friendly. They made the reservation at the restaurant for us. As we arrived after dinner, their was fresh cold water and sweets in front of our door. The room is tastefully decorated and was very clean. We felt really comfortable.

We've stayed here for the last 3-4 years and find it a fantastic base to see the attractions in Oudtshoorn. Very close are restaurants, bars and attractions. The treehouse accomadation is basically like a log cabin which is a fantastic place to stay. A very friendly and laid back place to stay. Recommended.
