We enjoyed the stay very much. The owners are very friendly and when we arrived they had set up a fire in the hearth as it was a bitterly cold night. They were charming hosts and let us choose which of 2 available rooms we preferred. The sleep quality was excellent as was the breakfast. The owners gave suggestions for... More

We loved Riverside Lodge. The room was beautiful, the staff were very helpful and friendly. We relaxed on the gorgeous deck in the sun for the afternoon, then enjoyed a port in front of the open fire. It was very cosy. The breakfast was great also. Highly recommend this place.

Beautifully decorated, finished comfortable home with very welcoming staff/owners who happily lit a fire for us on a colder evening. Room nice, comfy well dressed bed but sliding bathroom door reduced privacy. Delicious breakfast with good selection, overall great package at reasonable price close to town centre for East access with secure adjacent parking.

Really a special holiday! Kindness in a wonderful location. From the balcon of the Tree House you can have a wonderful look on the valley. The Tree House has a great charme due to its walls completely made by wood! Breakfast very good too.

Lovely place with a great charm! The interior decoration is done with a great sense of design. The patron Christo is a great host and excellent cook! It is conveniently located near the main road en route to the wildlife park, ostrich farm or the cango caves. All in all, definitely worth staying there!

I stayed at the Riverside Lodge for two nights with my family and it was so relaxing we felt like we had been there for a week. As other reviewers have mentioned the staff are all great and the accommodation was just perfect, we had one of the cabins which was fitted out to a very high standard with a... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Riverside Lodge very much. Everything was perfect. It is a special experience to sleep in a tree house. Even the fireplace was prepared and the service team was very friendly and helpful.

Had a night stop here. Arrived early evening and was met by the owner Christo. A smile, a handshake, and a warm welcome are all part of the charm of a b and b rather than a hotel. I also got plenty of good advice on local attractions. The property is lovely, the room I got was superb. Lovely decor,... More
