Great hosts - Sanet and Christo Pyper. We got a wonderful surprise when we checked in and were upgraded to a Tree House. This would be great for a family with two children as it has a big deck overelooking the garden and the river. The welcome drinks with all the other new guests was a really good way to...

Absolutely perfect - just wish we could have stayed longer than one night. Beautiful room - nicely decorated and lots of personal touches. Felt like we were staying in a castle. Friendly & helpful owners and staff. Great outdoor space for sitting and having a drink on an evening. Self service bar - just pay the tab when you leave....

Very quirky guesthouse with a great deck and comfortable rooms. The hostess was very welcoming and gave us a nice welcome drink when we arrived, which gave us the chance to chat to other guests.

We stayed in one of the tree houses while our friends stayed in the main house which they loved. The tree house was unique and wonderful. Breakfasts were excellent and the complimentary evening drink on the main veranda was a perfect touch. Highly recommended!

Outshoorn in the kline karoo is a great place to stay for visiting the area , just a small unpretentious town with a flavour of the real South Africa . Great scenic drives round about with the Swartberg pass being a particular favourite. The Staff at Riverside lodge were super , nothing was too much trouble.

Nice country lodge with lovely interior details and a very kind staff. The terrace is splendid to stay in nice days. The lodge houses were a special experience for our children wheras we liked very much the cosy rooms inside the main building. Lots of restaurant just a few meters around the lodge. Save car park. Good location of excursions...

We loved the Riverside. Comfortable, immaculate building, lovely people and brilliantly located near two very good local restaurants. The manager Carinne was most helpful and a beautiful friendly lady. Thouroughly recommend the Riverside to any visitors to Oudtshoorn. Neil and Julie (from Australia)!
