Fynbos Guest House
Ranked #2 of 9 Riversdale B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 23, 2011

I guess it all depends of what you're expecting. Fynbos was the only place we did not book beforehand for our trip through SA. It is a fact that the lady of the house, Sofia, is a very friendly lady indeed but as for the rest, this was the least fine guesthouse of our whole stay. I'm not saying it's not ok (the rooms are clean and the breakfast is ok) but compared to the other B&Bs or guesthouses we booked (for sometimes cheaper prices) this is just not the best price/quality you can get. Riversdale was just a sleepover place for us and South Africa is a beautiful country where you can find a lot of hidden gems when it comes to B&Bs or guesthouses. Just make sure you start your trip well-prepared and then you'll be sure to find good price/quality rooms.

When we arrived, we were allowed to choose our own rooms! The girls had a safari look and loved it!
The breakfast was very nice, eggs bacon ...
There is also internet available in the breakfast room.
Sophia, thank you for a nice stay!
