We just loved our time with Judy and Simon. Apart from the accommodation being so good, the main thing for us was the warm reception. We had such fun with them and other guests, it made our holiday. Would liked to have stayed there much longer, had so many laughs. We hope to visit again. Marilyn and Richard

I stayed for only one night, yet had the chance to enjoy two meals, and several chats with Judie and Simone, who welcomed me warmly at their B&B. The facilities are in great conditions and all interior is nicely picked collections of recent and more historical art. The garden is an oasis and the view simply astonishing.

It is a beautiful property with so lovely hosts. The rooms are clean and well equipped. Nothing was missing. High level for a guest house. Breakfast was fantastic. In every detail you see the kindness and passion of the hosts.

Our hosts could not have been more welcoming at this excellent B&B. We were made to feel at home from word go. The room was beautifully appointed, overlooking the well-kept gardens and above the scenic river, and had everything we could have wished for. We had a magnificent meal with the hosts and 2 other guests on the veranda with... More

We had a lovely, relaxing stay at this wonderful B&B - it's a real gem of a place! We easily recommend the service and facilities offered. The proprietors take personal interest in looking after the guest accommodation, and to ensure their guests comfort. Well Done!

The location and the building are really wonderful. Outside you will sit close to a flower garden under shelter and on top of the hill. The river flows in walking distance. The whole scenery makes you feel at home - and the rooms are nicely equipped and the beds are proper, and everything clean and tidy. This all is really... More

We booked the self catering cottage for 3 nights and loved it. The cottage is spacious, beautifully furnished, clean and exceptionally well stocked! The wooden verandah has comfortable chairs with a view of the Bushman River and we spent almost all of our time there reading, chatting and playing backgammon. It is the perfect place to truly get away from... More

The establishment is owned and managed by a very warm and committed family, Judy and Simon Oliver. There is nothing more that anyone could ask for in this beautiful B&B. From access to the cool sparkling water of the rock pool, cold beverages on tap, clean and comfortable rooms to five star meals, there is nothing more that anyone could... More

We spent a very quick one night at River Roost, pity, would have liked to stay longer. Thanks to Joan and Simon for making us feel so at home. The breakfast was tasty and especially the view onto the waterfall was very restful too. The views onto the Busham's River from our room and patio was spectacular. Pity about the... More

Judy and Simon are amazing hosts and bend over backwards to ensure your every need and desire is anticipated. This quaint bed and breakfast overlooks the Bushman River and is nestled in a beautiful and peaceful garden setting. The house is very well decorated with very interesting pieces of native and family artworks. There also is small cottage halfway down... More
