Very friendly owners, lovely clean room with a great shower. Had everything one would need to have a very pleasant stay. Unfortunately did not stay for breakfast in the morning as we were looking to get up and leave early so cannot comment in this

I Visited for 1 night. The owners are very friendly and helpful. They made me feel at home. The swimming pool was enjoyable and there were swimming towels available as well. The braai area looks lovely. It's quiet and relaxed there at the guesthouse. The showers are good and the rooms are clean. The breakfast I had there was delicious! You need only have to ask the owners if you need anything and they will help you.

Thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality and tranquility. I would recommend this home away for home to everyone who needs accommodation in Riversdale. Friendly hosts, friendly town folk and beautiful views of the mountains in the distance.

Being that I was in Riversdale for work, coming "home" to Fynbos Guest House was a peaceful, and restful experience. The hosts are friendly, and attentive, and my room was spotless, and comfortable. Breakfast in the music themed dining room was very enjoyable.

Last minute Business Trip had me trying to find a place that was very close to ladismith and Stillbaai. I was a bit hesitant at first as we are in the middle of a pandemic and was not sure if guesthouses were operating. (Protocals are in place here) I showed up late Monday afternoon to be pleasantly Greeted by Merinda and later on Wessie. Really a lovely couple, who went out there way at making the rooms feel cozy as if you were in your own place. This guesthouse is situated on the outer skirts of Riversdale which is really nice as there is no disturbances and a lovely pool area to unwind on the hot summer days. Breakfast came with my stay and was it succulent. It will be interesting to see what there 3 course meals are like? Only downer was the wifi that i could not connect to in my room, leaving me to do some work while sitting on the bench outside for signal (taking in the clean crisp air) Besides the miner things, I highly recommend Fynbos Guest House. I will definitely go back!
