    I had an excellent stay the the River Road Guest House. Its the best guesthouse I have ever stayed at in SA. From the look and feel of the rooms, the service from the owners, to the food. Everything is perfect.

    Dear Zanele It is always a pleasure having you stay with us. We are thrilled that you think of the guest house so highly. Meeting people and having them return regularly, like yourself makes me enjoy my job even more. Kindest regards Madeleine

    We were travelling with my 20 month old baby so needed a room with space for a camp cot. The family room is great for travelling with little ones. The beds were comfortable, Madalene is a lovely host. We felt very relaxed.

    Rooms, service and hospitality superb. Attention to detail is evident in rooms. Definitely recommend this establishment. Owners live on premises so hands on management. Prompt reply and correspondence when booking.
