My wife and I have stayed at a lot of different places, in many countries, and no breakfast has ever compared the ones we enjoyed at Riverside Estates. I couldn't recommend them more.

Looking forward to coming back one day.

Dear Brad, Many Thanks for your compliments on the breakfast. We have even gone further now and do get 90% of our supplies from the local organic suppliers. The smell of croissants and freshly baked bread is coming from our kitchen as I am typing this to you. Please remember that when you visit Cape Town again you are entitled to a discounted rate at Riverside.
Best Regards
Robert

Riverside rests in the valley, cradled by the mountains. Stunning landscape surrounds and beauty abounds. The true magic of riverside isn't in the stunning scenery but the people who work there. The people who work at riverside is what nourishes the soul- their smile, their playfulness, their joy. Riverside for me is a precious place. A place of transformation, restoration and falling in love. The people and land create a space where the heart can open in a new way. Deeply wonderful. Always in my heart. With love and smiling eyes. To everyone at riverside, thank you.

I took part in the Kundalini teacher training at Riverside in September 2013 and I felt so taken care of and supported by Robert and his staff. The place is just so beautiful. I would recommend this accommodation to everyone. Eating lunch on the back porch of the cottage next to the stream that borders the property--i never wanted to leave. Hello to Jag one of the resident dogs whose head is as big as his heart. Thank you Riverside!

Room Tip: The cottage by the stream. It has a fireplace and private little pool.

Sat Nam Hanna Lee! Thank you for your beautiful review. I have posted an awesome photo of Jag on FB saying hello to all the yogis. I hope you are settled back in Berlin and planning your next trip to SA. Yogi tea has become a menu item and the cinnamon smell is still lingering. We look forward to your next visit.
Regards
Robert

Anyone wanting to stay in a beautiful, tranquil setting when visiting Cape Town, should definitely consider Riverside Estate. Riverside Estate is really amazing. I highly recommend this venue. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful.

Good day Fontini,
Many thanks for your review. The vibration of the yogis are still present and the dogs run every now and then to the hall to just make sure you guys aren't still there. Do remember our offer to all friends and family visiting. “It's not life that matters, it's the courage you bring to it.” - Yogi Bhajan. We look forward to your next visit.

I've been to Cape Town before and loved it but this trip was even more unforgettable as we stayed at the Riverside Estate in Hout Bay--just 25 mins from downtown Cape Town. This boutique hotel provides amazing personal attention to the guests, our large group felt so welcome and cared for. They were able to fulfill each and every request we made from taking my mobile phone to be fixed, taking us into the Hout Bay market, bringing us extra blankets and hot water bottles on chilly nights, the list goes on and on. My family have lived internationally for 20 years and we have stayed in all levels of hotels--this one is a stand-out. Can't wait for another opportunity to visit South Africa again, will definitely be sure to stay here.

Dear Lisa,
Many Thanks for your beautiful review. It was great having you and all the other yogis as our guests. The energy still vibrates in the soil - and yogi tea has become a menu item. We will definitely see you and your family on your next visit. Love from the staff.
