        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!

        Rum nr 4”

        Receptionisten Agnes mycket trevlig och visste verkligen vad service var. Lugnt och tyst läge. Rent.
        Rum nr 4 var det minsta vi haft under vår fyra veckors resa i Sydafrika. Frukosten var ingen höjdare och det tog lång tid innan vi fick den.

        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.
