Recent guest reviews

We we're rushing to find a place and Rivierbos definitely helped us out because they take last minute reservations and that's not what most guest houses do so that's perfect.I'll definitely recommend them to friends and family

Good quality accommodation with friendly staff, good location and proper rooms. Personally i just think that this review system is a bit too long, 200 characters is a hefty and has personally put me off.

Thoroughly enjoyed a relaxed two day stay. Received a warm welcome and friendly service throughout our stay. Clean rooms and very comfortable beds. Sufficient Wi-Fi throughout the building and secure and safe parking on the premises. Quick walk to nearby popular restaurants and trendy shops. Will return again.

I enjoyed my stay here. Very friendly reception, comfortable and clean room, good free breakfast. I would stay here again. The location is on a side street but close to main shopping and restaurant area.

A really pleasant stay at this guest house that is situated very near to the CBD and university. A very good breakfast and most of all very professional staff! The guesthouse is situated next to the river which gives it a peaceful atmoshphere.

Clean, comfortable and well situated. The air-conditioned rooms are generally airy well equipped. Great value for money in Stellenbosch. Special mention: The staff is exceptionally friendly and accommodating.

We were greeted warmly at the riverbos guest House, the Location was lovely, the Roms were nice, friendly people, great breakfast! There is nothing left to say! I will definetely come back to stellenbosh!

A nice place. It is a romantic guesthouse. Very clean. In a fine place with a friendly staff. This guesthouse is on a good spot; nearby a lot of restaurants, but also a very quit place, with his own garden.

Room was clean and comfortable but place needs to be fixed up - dark and dingy passage leading to bedrooms - the whole place looks tired! Breakfast was very average, There were a number of overseas guests and it is a pity that a B&B with such potential was actually so disappointing.

It is a good location near the Dorpstraat in Stellenbosch. A lot of restaurants a located near by. Also very friendly staff. The room was average but doable. Very soft matrases. We don't mind going to this accommodation again.
