Wonderful holiday on the west coast of Mauritius. This is the place to stay if you are not attracted by the resort alternative. We were very well looked after by Angela and her staff, nothing was too much trouble. Dined in on two nights and enjoyed excellent meals prepared by Angela herself. Relaxing breakfasts on the veranda overlooking the peaceful... More

If you are looking for quietness, fresh air and a very pleasant view, this is the place where your search ends. Very warm and friendly hospitality by the host Angela Piat. Very co-operative staff and excellent home cooked food.

Thank you to Angela for making this a special place. We have stayed in Mauritius many times as the children have grown up and it has many happy memories for us. We prefer this part of the island as it is less developed than the north. The location of the River House suggests a rental car is a good idea,... More

Stayed at River House for four nights in January 2014 after having found the hotel website online. We had stayed in Mauritius several times but we didn't know of this gem, but now we've found it, we look forward to staying there again! For the first two nights of our stay we were the only guests, but even when at... More

First we would like to say thank you to Angela for our lovely stay in Tamarin Mauritius. We arrived early after a long flight from the UK and received a lovely welcome from Angela and Lucky (the dog). River House is in a gorgeous setting with amazing views of the mountain and the river and only a two minute stroll... More

First off all, thank you Angela for an amazing stay. After a little search, because we got directions for coming out off the North, and we came out the South, we got a warm welcome from Angela, who made us feel immediately at home. We had the standard room, which is in the house, and we loved it. Beautiful woods... More

In October 2013 we stayed for several nights in this charming B&B. Our room, one of the "spacious double bedrooms", was indeed spacious, very clean and comfortable. Located at the riverbanks, we could enjoy the wonderful setting from our private veranda. Moreover, the rich breakfast, the friendly hostess as well as her courteous staff are quite remarkable. The River House... More

We stayed at the River House at the end of September 2013 and it was just wonderful. The rooms were gorgeous, spacious and verrrrrrry clean. Lovely attention to detail with a fresh flower placed by the bathroom sink daily! With a hammock and verandah to watch the river go by, and a 3 minute walk down a sandy lane to... More

My husband and I stayed at the river house for over a week during our honeymoon in Mauritius. We decided to stay at a B&B for the middle part of our holiday with a stay at the Luxe Grande Gaube at the beginning and a few nights at The Oberoi at the end. The River House is in a beautifully... More
