I had such a wonderful time on this trip. While my business in Johannesburg was sad (a funeral), I found the respite at Riverbend Country House to be just what I needed. The early morning birds singing and squawking, the beautiful garden, the lovely rooms. Thank you! I think this is an amazing place. I was there for 9 nights...

Spent a relaxing and peaceful weekend at this beautiful Country House. The hosts Ollie and Barbara were very attentive and provided everything we needed. The rooms were clean and refreshing and I loved the sherry and chocolates we were welcomed with. The French door's, large bathroom and country style décor fitted the scene perfectly. I almost expected Adam and Eve...

The room was clean and nice. The place is nice and cool (peaceful). Had a comfortable sleep. The service offered was super no complaint about it. The most interesting thing about you lodge is that is away from town and its in the bush which makes it my favourite. I will always make sure that when I come there I...

This B&B is located at the end of a road driving past a township. We didn't feel safe especially after a long day's work, driving at night. The rooms were an old 1970's style and not up to date with other establishments.

Truly felt like home away from home coming down from Cape Town for work. I recieved an sms from the owner which came in handy when I got lost and needed to find my way. I received a warm, friendly welcome. My room was nicely warmed up for me and I was assured that if I needed anything they were...

The stay was very relaxing and nice. The service was great. Really enjoyed the breakfasts and the hospitality of the hosts. The rooms were very clean and warm. It is very close to a couple of nice centres with great restaurants for those staying for a long period of time.

When we arrived, the hosts were so welcoming and friendly and talkative which already put the B&B in a good light. We were there for an escape from the busy everyday life going on outside so the peaceful surroundings inside there worked perfectly. It seems so far away from the busy shopping centers, but it's really not. The squatter camp...

We enjoyed our stay very much! We experienced the B&B managers as very helpful and warm people. It was very pleasant to eat in the peaceful garden, where you only can hear the birds singing. It was also possible to have dinner on request. The rooms are very comfortable.

A piece of paradise in a hectic city. Polite and helpful staff and management made us feel at home. The breakfast was amazing, A true English breakfast. An immediate response to a request from us to change the sports TV channel to a Portuguese football game was appreciated. The rooms were neat and tidy. So peaceful and serene. Definitely will...

I have done a lot of traveling in my day, I can't seem to understand why this Bnb is a star place! Poor manners, they couldn't be bothered about customers happiness! Insisted we paid extra money and wasn't interested in why us as customers weren't happy! Had to drive through a squatter camp to get to the Bnb for starters.....
