Whenever you are in Kenton on Sea you must book the cottage of the River Roost B &B. We were there with our family for 5 nights and Simon & Judy gave us a holiday we will never forget! It felt as if we were part of the family and had a lot of fun at breakfast and dinner time.... More

We spent our wedding night at Rivers Roost. They were very accommodating with our late arrival. They even got our key to us before we arrived so we could let ourselves in. The next morning we enjoyed a delicious breakfast cooked to order while overlooking the Bushmans River. A great start to married life. Would definitely recommend to everyone.

We lucked into the River Roost and at Christmas time no less, thanks to a no-show and our hosts' kind generosity. Our room was very comfortable and had a beautiful view of the river below. Much of our time there was spent on the back porch taking in the river and doing a bit of birdwatching. Simon and Judy were... More

A piece of paradise that allows you to relax and be part of nature whilst still having all the luxuries readily available. If only I could have breakfast out on that deck every morning!!! The views are incredible with the added bonus of a view from the bathtub!Its easily accessible but lets be honest you wont want to go anywhere!!!

I stayed in the cabin with my two daughters for 4 nights. I had booked ahead from Australia and from first contact Simon was helpful and informative. The cottage was beautifully appointed and the views fantastic; we really enjoyed birdwatching from the verandah both morning and evening. The only downside was the hectic steep and twisty driveway which my rental... More

We stayed with Judy and Simon overnight in their house B&B then in the log cabin by the river. Both were lovely but the cabin was very special. It is very spacious, has a very cosy living room and a fabulous deck where we spent a lot of our time and ate all our meals. Our son was at the... More

We stayed with our grown up daughter twice in August 2013 and had the most wonderful stay in SImon and Judy's lovely cabin accommodation with amazing views over the estuary. The house is so comfortable, with electric blankets and plenty of hot water and lovely, comfortable beds and a living area. In summer to sit out on the deck overlooking... More

We knew we would need a place to stay overnight after a very long drive, prior to going to Sibuya game reserve. We booked in via the Internet months ahead, based on Tripadvisor alone. Decided to splash out on the riverside cottage and what a good decision, lovely location and bright airy well appointed property. The access road to this... More

River roost is by far the best place I have ever stayed in SA. The accommodations are perfect, the exact mix of well decorated, clean, spacious, and comfortable. The grounds were fantastic with a pool on one side and a gorgeous view of the river and Ocean off the other side. But above all else, the hospitality of the innkeepers,... More
