What a warm welcome on arrival. I was allowed to make a booking at this guest house without any deposit being required. The room was very clean, the bed a large King was very comfortable with only the best linen. Highly recommended. The cherry on top was the excellent rate asked for the room.

We recently stayed over at Oakhurst on our way back from Holiday. Oakhurst is situated in the little town of Riversdale. The rooms where neat, tidy and clean. The garden is well maintained with a pool. We had a relaxing sleep.

Great place to rest up whilst visiting Riversdale or the region in general. Our party had two of the garden cottages which were excellent, and two of the rooms in the boarding house - very high quality. Heart breakfast, pool area and an "honesty bar" rounded off a nice overnight stay. Would be hard to beat Oakhurst for value for...

There was ample space in the unit which also had a veranda with a built in braai which overlooked the lovely garden. We received a warm and friendly welcome from the owners. We had a good night's sleep and...

I stayed at the Oakhurst for one night in December 2014 during a motorbike trip. Security for the bike was good with an electric gate and covered parking. I stayed in the main house, room 3 and although I couldn't describe the room as immaculate, it was a little tired but was certainly comfortable and well equipped with TV, air...

Riversdale is a sweet little town which you come to appreciate more and more. The Oakhurst Guesthouse is a lovely home with spacious self-catering rooms. The rates here are extremely reasonable for what you get and definitely a good stop-over location. The gardens are beautifully kept and in the morning you can hear the birds chirping away. Only downside perhaps...

With the Hessequa MTB challenge we had a good opportunity to stay in Riversdale. We often pass through the town and to our minds it consisted of an Engen, Wimpy and Spur. Oakhurst Guest house offered a spacious room, king size bed, great breakfast and a wonderful garden to relax in. The staff and management was helpful and friendly, even...

The Oakhurst Guest House is a little treasure in Riversdale: a gracious old building, all warm woods, with shady oak trees in the gardens and a small but very welcome swimming pool. Unit 4 is in the main house, comprising 3 rooms (large bedroom, full bathroom and a kitchenette/dining area): it’s comfortable, clean, air-conditioned and well-equipped. Other units, equally well-equipped,...

“Unit 5 or 6 are great - big sized rooms with good showers. Or the little flat-let inside the house - two rooms, with one bathroom, which is great for families.”
