We had a brilliant stay at Riversong. Spent a week there while doing some wedding planning. The rooms are beautifully set up, there's a beautiful view of the mountain, the staff are very friendly and the breakfast is something to look forward to every morning... It is a bit overpriced, but with the discovery vitality discount we got it actually... More

This is, by far, the best guest house we have ever visited. The owner and her staff have thought of every possible need for their guests. A lovely facility staffed by a friendly and capable staff. Our room was spacious, beautifully decorated and especially comfortable.

Inri and her staff did an excellent job taking care of our group of six. They assisted us in booking tours of Cape Town and the surrounding area including Table Mountain and the V&A Waterfront, Cape Peninsula, and Wine Country. They also assisted in booking restaurants for our dinners. Each room was a little different and all were well-appointed. I... More

I would like to complement the owner of the Riversong Guesthouse. We sent our top executives for a stay at the guesthouse and they were absolutely impressed by the beautiful surrounding, great service and excellent facilities. We will most definitely use this guesthouse when our executives travel to cape town again. I recommend this guesthouse as a top class stay... More

Lovely place and thanks to Inri for being so accommodating. Kalula had messed up my booking dates but Riversong allowed me to change the booking, The place is lovely and the service is great. I'm sure others will say the same.

We stayed at the Riversong guest house for one night. We wanted to be closer to the Northern Subburbs and had our two children with us which really limited the places that we available to stay. While the room was clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful, the room for one night was close to USD 300. For... More
