Thank you very much for your hospitality and for treating us so royally!


P.S. send our regards to “Charlie”!


Warm Regards,

Riverwalk is a luxury B&B with clean and very comfortable rooms. It is ideally situated next to the river with great views of the mountains overlooking Clarens, yet it is only a few minutes walk to the centre of the town. The owners are friendly and made us feel very welcome, and they were very helpful - providing plenty of local knowledge and helpful tips.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2009

We spent two nights of our southern African road trip in the Riverwalk B&B, after booking by email. It's situated on the edge of Clarens - first road on the right as you come into town from the main road. The road itself was an unmade track with a few large potholes, so some care is needed, but we found it OK.

The onwer, Hannetjie, was expecting us when we arrived and we were shown to our room on the ground floor. The building is a very modern, purpose built structure set into the hillside, with rooms on the upper and lower levels each with their own door to the outside. Each room looks out over a modern garden with tiered lawns down to a line of ornamental trees.

Our room was large and tastefully decorated in neutral colours. Room facilities included a large TV (only basic set of channels, which is the norm for SA), fridge, hairdryer, and fan (no a/c, but Clarens was cool enough at night). The en-suite bathroom had his/her washbasins and a large corner bath with ceiling mounted shower above. A nice touch was the complementary sherry and pretzels on the desk.

Breakfast was really delicious with a mouthwatering selection of croissants, fresh fruit salad, and daily cooked specialities (particularly liked the omelettes). Hannetjie proved to be a convivial host and had some good recommendations for restaurants in the town. She also advised a short-cut walking route into town from the Riverwalk - seemed safe enough at night, but very dark backstreets.

We were even able to arrange for some laundry to be done at the Riverwalk while we were out for the day, all for a nominal fee to the staff. Time-saving facilities like this are always much appreciated on a long road trip.

Clarens is a really relaxing and scenically beautiful place to visit in South Africa, and the Riverwalk B&B was a great choice. We strongly recommend.
