Excellent service and value for money accommodation in upmarket location. All staff are very friendly and always willing to assist with a smile where they make u feel at home. Will most definitely be recommended to others.

TripAdvisor | Stellies Stay – July 2018

Nestled in the scenic town of Stellenbosch, this cosy guest lodge bolsters friendly staff, excellent breakfast with very generous omelette and spacious rooms. You literally walk to all the amenities in town and still have the luxury of private lodging with the serene surrounding. This lodge is close to all the wineries and not too far from the main streets which are quiet.

TripAdvisor | Value for money – July 2018

The room was great, perfect for a short breakaway or a overnight. The staff were all warm and welcoming staff that really made the stay very enjoyable, they even arranged the appropriate DSTV channel so I could follow the Tour de France. The breakfasts was fantastic, nice and quite area with the river flowing close by.

The location was perfect for walking around town for site seeing and dining. The staff were marvellous and very helpful with questions and arranging travel. The house was quaint. The breakfast was available cold and hot. We would definitely return here.

The time we have spend here was amazing, you cant get more lovely people at the Rivierbos, this was the best place in south Africa we stayed at! the location is also absolutely perfect. And breakfast was real good…

TripAdvisor | Such a wonderful experience – June 2018

Room was great with a marshmallowy soft bed. My son slept on a stretcher type bed which was very comfortable. Breakfasts were excellent and the historical Dorpstreet is about 100m walking distance with amazing restaurants, shops and galleries. The guesthouse also has access to the small river running behind the property which was great for relaxing strolls around the historical town. The guesthouse also has a historic well! Wonderful accommodation! Will definitely book here in future! Excellent value

TripAdvisor | What a great stay! We even decided to extend our stay with another day – June 2018

The guest house was a walking distance from the place of my meeting.-Stellenbosch University. The room was quite comfortable to stay in. It provided the warmth that I needed. Staff helped with with a mobile phone when mine was giving me a hard time. I really appreciate the service by all staff.

We stayed at Rivierbos for one night on our way from Cape Town to Montagu. We arrived late in the evening, pretty exhausted and they couldn’t have been more welcoming. The room was small but had everything you needed. Very comfortable bed. Breakfast was perfect. We recommend the omelette. Yum! Very good location for wandering around stellenbosch and getting on and off the main road.

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.

Great service, beautiful, tranquil building that is still super close to the local shops and bespoke items. Exploring the villages, architecture, heritage, and scenery is less than a 1k walk.. How refreshing to visit a city in South Africa that restores/maintains it’s beautiful architecture, amongst world renowned vineyards, and Rivierbos was perfectly in tune with Stellies.

Perfect stay. Safe, good location. Would certainly stay there again in the future. Staff were very very kind. Breakfast to order, great eggs! Room was good, bed made every day and climate control, noiseless.

We stayed overnight as we had a wedding at Spier hotel. Couldn’t have chosen a more lovely place to stay. Friendly and helpful staff and rooms well equipped, ours had a bar fridge and lovely shower. It is in walking distance to a few local really nice restaurants. We had a great breakfast in the morning. Secure parking and a pool. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend it.
