A really lovely find and such a wonderful welcome - best of our entire trip. The rooms - whilst not huge - were beautiful and such a comfortable bed/pillows. Quite aircon too! So much character to the place. The whole area has so much to offer, we wished we had been able to stop longer. Loads of places to go...

This was our first stay in Oudtshoorn. The Riverside Lodge was lovely. Our room was beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. Sherry drinks were waiting for you in the room. The breakfast was outside under the acacias. It is a delightful lodge. Walking distance to the shops. Highly recommended.

We received a nice welcome drink on the terrace, the room was good but a little small and dark this was a very peaceful setting over looking the river. The breakfast on the terrace was very good, would recommend this guesthouse.

The large front deck has nice views and one gets to see the sunset from here weather permitting. Below there is abundant bird life and a short walk can be done along the river bank....

Unfortunately we only spent one night at the Riverside Lodge. We hadn't booked a room when we arrived and the very friendly woman showed us all available rooms so we could select the one most suitable for us.
