Sadly, we stayed for one night only, but it was beyond expectation. The ambiance, style, and relaxed but prompt service made it such a worthwhile short beak from our hectic lives, that we will be back again soon. Excellent value for money, lovely quiet and secure setting, real country pub, very good en-suite bedrooms with excellent beds and linen, opening... More

Well run, comfortable and welcoming hotel. Wonderful ambience and staff attitude - so we will certainly come again. Invited extra guests for the best breakfast in town and it was no problem at all. Thanks Sam.

My son and I were on a two-day fact finding mission for a school project. From the moment we arrived until we left, we were made to feel so welcome. The rooms were comfortable, the beds were of good quality and the food was lovely, straight from "jou ma se kombuis". Friendly and efficient staff. We will definitely go there... More

We had dinner, overnight stay and breakfast at The ared Tinroof, very neat and tidy rooms, good food and very friendly staff. Sam is a friendly hostess, it felt like home. It would have been helpfull to have the option of twinrooms, they only have double beds, that is not practical with two teenagers a boy and a girl.

The Red Tin Roof is the place to go to if you are visiting Riebeeck Kasteel. The food is outstanding. The rooms are top class. The pub is festive. The staff extremely friendly and accommodating. Loved it. The owners Sam and Jacques, are such interesting people and have made this place a home away from home.

I had googled places to eat in Riebek when I came across Red Tin Roof. It said "vetkoek Burger".... this has to be the BEST invention I have ever had and the quality of the food was outstanding. The service was so friendly- not overly happy but efficient and on the move. It felt sooo great spending a day there,... More
