Accommodation is super, the room was clean and comfy, staff very friendly and helpful, breakfast was cooked well and served quickly. There is plenty, safe enclosed parking and the garden is pretty and peaceful. walking distance to restaurants etc

Very cosy and efficient, what more could you need. Awesome breakfasts, lovely garden, and beautiful view! Very easy to find, and centrally situated in Stellenbosch, makes for overall perfect experience.

I cannot recommend this guesthouse to anyone. There is not a single point what satisfied me at the place but the shower. It was a very poor stay and will never come back again. The rooms are very small, to go the other side of the room we had to crawl over the bed as our suitcase was behind the bed.

We enjoyed every second of our stay in the house. The quality of almost everything was on point. The service from everyone was great and warming. We will definitely use this place again soon.Thank You.

The guesthouse is very nice, with friendly people and quiet, easy parking allthough it is in the centre of Stellenbosch and within walking distance to all the restaurants and shop sin town. Very recommendable.

Nice big old house done-up to modern standards, in a large garden with plenty of secure parking, alongside the Eerste River (which has a walking trail). Right close to the city centre with dozens of pubs and restaurants, and within walking distance of the University. This is a good choice for both academic visitors and tourists. -- Trevor.

Really great area and easy to find. Friendly and knowledgeable host. Short walk to plenty of restraunts and bars. The room was spacious, beds very comfy and bathroom clean and well equipped. Breakfast was delicious and nice range of options. Overall a very satisfying stay.

We really had a lovely time at Rivierbos Guest House. It was very peaceful sleeping and staying there. I didn't had to worry about my car standing outside. I felt safe and loved the breakfast the next morning.

The location of the property is really good, you can go in the evening to many restaurants and bars. The staff at rivierbos is really nice and helpful and they offer safe parking lots and a nice breakfast. The rooms downstairs can be a little bit noisy as the doors are not that noise-covering. But not that dramatic. We would come again.

The place was nice. Friendly service except when we arrived. Our plane arrived in the evening after check-in but I told them we will be late and she kept reminding us we missed it. But after that it was smooth sailing.
