We stayed at Riverside Lodge during the Klein Karoo National Arts Festival. It is close to the centre of town. Next to a river. Rooms are clean and very comfortable and has that luxurious side on it. The hosts are such GREAT people! Very friendly! Really an AWESOME place to stay!

Room Tip: The rooms inside of the house I found really nice!, The three house option is more for families

This guesthouse was very unusual from other places we had stayed but it was very good and clean. We only stayed one night which was not long enough to fully appreciate the surroundings. The breakfast was good and in a lovely setting. I would recommend it for a stay in Oudstshoornn

Very good guest house and very professionally run. Management was very helpful with useful tips on restaurants and attractions. The guest house is set in very pleasant surroundings in the heart of the town. I would recommend it highly.

We chose the unusual 'treehouse' option for our 1 night stay and were not disappointed - although 1 toilet (in the bedroom) for 2 couples wasn't ideal, but we coped. Our treehouse was fun and looks great on our holiday photos - like we were in the middle of a forest somewhere. The honesty bar on the sunny terrace was a nice touch and we enjoyed a refreshing G&T before going out to explore. Riverside is in a lovely location overlooking open countryside yet access to the quiet town centre is just a few minutes walk away. Our hosts were very welcoming and the breakfast, served on the terrace, was a fresh, wholesome buffet with cooked options - all good! Recommended as a stopover or short stay when touring the R62 wine route.

Room Tip: The treehouse was rustic and fun - which is great if that's what you want - but for more of a lu...

We had a warm welcome by the owner.
Our room was beautiful and contained every little extra that you could possibly have wished for, such excellent attention to detail.
The location is close to all amenities and I wish we were staying longer than 1 night.
