This guest house is a warm and cozy place to stay .. I will choose this place over any other. The hospitality was on- point. Madam Angela and her Staff made us feel at home and certainly made our stay enjoyable. The breakfast by the deck overlooking the river was a great start to each day. We had Christmas dinner...

We stayed at the river house for 3 nights, Host Angela and staff was very warm and friendly. The room was simple, clean with stunning view of the river from private balcony. If anyone looking for peace, relaxation and nature then it is an ideal off beat location for stay. It is advisable to have a car for travel as...

When Andy checked us in he said 'you have the room and the house'. Over the 7 nights we were to appreciate that we were sharing Angela's home. The room was large and clean with a delightful private balcony overlooking the river. A delicious breakfast was served overlooking the river. A highlight of our stay was an evening meal cooked...

It was a privilege to have had the opportunity to stay at The River House that really lives up to the reviews it gets. The location is stunning for anyone who wants a quiet getaway away to relax and watch the tides, wildlife, and the occasional fisherman flow by. Angela and her staff were extremely helpful throughout, and the standard...

Ideal place for me. Made to feel at home. Small, discreet, simple yet clean & efficient but with a stunning location. Short walk to a beautiful beach & adjoining Hotel, which is perfect for lunch. A car/bicycle would be useful if one wanted to use the nearby Sports centre (tennis/pool) The Golf course is within walking distance. The staff are...

This place is special to us not only because it's beautiful, idyllic and tranquil, but also because it was the place we spent our first night after we got married 3 years ago. Back then, I was clear that I wanted to stay in a small and intimate place, different to the experience offered by the big resorts. And I...

This is a great place to stay on the west coast; the view from the rooms are amazing, the location is very peaceful, just a few minutes walk away from Tamarin Bay, and a very warm welcome from Lillian and the team. It's well worth taking out the kayak for a paddle to check out the river, and although to...

The River House was our second stop during our nine day honeymoon in Mauritius. We had initially booked the Suite but there was a slight mix up with the booking. However, Angela emailed us to offer us the double room instead and threw in a delicious dinner to make up for the mistake. The double room was sufficient for our...

This is a really picturesque, peaceful spot most of the time. However on Friday and Saturday night until 5:30am the next morning the pumping bass of Big Willys nightclub intruded through my earplugs. At first we were told it was a wedding, but locals said it was normal. The room is comfortable and light with a deck right on the...

Very nice place to go. Personal is very friendly and helpfull. A car or scooter is necessary but is also possible to book there. The breakfast was very delicious. A beach is just 200m away and it is possible to walk to tamarin at low tide. A kayak is at the hotel and can be used for free.
