Little guest house in central location

Location, Cathy at the front desk, the pool area
The guest house is ok, not very spectacular and a bit run down but what is actually excellent is the location, just off of Dorp Street but very quite and with an extremy nice and caring lady called Cathy at the front desk!

Small room and not comfortable

This hotel quite expensive when compare with room facilities and size. Low celling and wet floor let us not comfortable. No Restaurant for family close to hotel just places to hang out.

Affordable Accommodation in Stellenbosch

Smaaaal swimming pooool
rivierbos guest house is strategically located in the heart of the beautiful and historical town of stellenbosch. museums, art galleries and curio shops are all within safe walking distance. it is the ideal destination from which our guests could explore the heart of south africa’s wine country, franschhoek, paarl, cape town with table mountain, cape point, the waterfront, the peninsula and the many other attractions offered by the western cape.

Liten pool utan dusch i trång trädgård, men OK.

Trevlig personal, bra varm frukost och kall frukostbuffé, skyddad parkering.

Rum nr 4

Receptionisten Agnes mycket trevlig och visste verkligen vad service var. Lugnt och tyst läge. Rent.
Receptionisten Agnes bokade vintur åt oss med Annette Inkson (mot provision) som visade sig vara mcyket kunnig och trevlig. Hon rekommenderade även Café Java där vi åt god mat två kvällar. Riverbos Guest House låg på gångavstånd från centrum och det kändes säkert att gå även dit på kvällen. Parkering på gården som var låst. Vacker och välskött trädgård som gästerna hade tillgång till.
