Even before arriving at this place, I was very much impressed with Angela's hospitality who emails the guest to ensure their preference. When I had mentioned about we are honeymooners and 1st timers to Mauritius Angela upgraded our rooms which had a private sit outs overlooking the river. When we arrived at this place my wife and myself were mesmerized... More

I spent 19 nights in Mauritius between Four Season, Beachcomber Le Mauricia, and this fine establishment the River House. This inn is probably like no place on earth not in terms of its rooms or facilities, which were quite nice, but in terms of the hospitality you will find here. They upgrade me for the Honeymoon suite for free, added... More

we are deeply grateful for the wonderful stay in this small B&B, hosted by Angela and 'her family', knowing exactly who needs what kind of attention. the house is lovely, embedded in a real Mauritian environment, with lots of animals to observe and whatsoever nature, so this is not some artificial same-same-hotel-experience. it is located a bit off the usual...

Perfect place to spend a few quiet days over New Year. Beautiful beach 3mins walk away. Swim with Dolphins in the bay. What a highlight for the kids, as well as us. Angela is so welcoming and helpful. A real home from home.

We had a great time at the River House with Angela and her staff always caring and attentive. As a whole it was just wonderful. We felt like at home and it was very cosy. Food is excellent - always some fresh fruit at breakfast and delicious Mauritian food in the evening when our hostess organises something. One thing I... More

When Andy checked us in he said 'you have the room and the house'. Over the 7 nights we were to appreciate that we were sharing Angela's home. The room was large and clean with a delightful private balcony overlooking the river. A delicious breakfast was served overlooking the river. A highlight of our stay was an evening meal cooked...

It was a privilege to have had the opportunity to stay at The River House that really lives up to the reviews it gets. The location is stunning for anyone who wants a quiet getaway away to relax and watch the tides, wildlife, and the occasional fisherman flow by. Angela and her staff were extremely helpful throughout, and the standard... More

Ideal place for me. Made to feel at home. Small, discreet, simple yet clean & efficient but with a stunning location. Short walk to a beautiful beach & adjoining Hotel, which is perfect for lunch. A car/bicycle would be useful if one wanted to use the nearby Sports centre (tennis/pool) The Golf course is within walking distance. The staff are... More
