We stayed at the Riversong Guest House in Capetown for 5 days in November, 2013, right after a Safari. Inri and her staff had us picked up at the airport and provided a guide for the entire visit. We had a wonderful welcome with lots of information and tips on what to do. This was not the usual check-in, but more like coming to a good friend's house and talking things over to make sure your visit is the best. The beds are very comfortable, the water is always hot and the rooms are spacious and sunny. And the breakfasts, made to order, are everything one could possibly want to start the day. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. It seems that everyone here is genuinely interested in making you feel special. I wanted to walk to a nearby shopping mall by myself, but Inri would have none of it. She sent one of her staff with me to make sure I was save and did not get lost. The Riversong also provided excellent and quick laundry service and took care of some purchases for us,as well and took care of our postage needs. There is nothing wrong with the Riversong, nothing! If you come at the right time of the year, you can take advantage of the swimming pool as well. We had a few meals in the evenings with stuff we had bought at the market and the Riversong provides all the rest to make for an elegant dinner on the Patio. This is a well maintained, beautiful guest house in a quiet neighborhood and I can recommend it without hesitation.
