I was thrilled to discover this gem; to think I always thought of Riversdale as just what one sees on the N2 (not to mention the speed traps). We were welcomed warmely and made comfortable from the get go. Dinner in the restaurant was absolutely superb, the Chef (Christopher - I think), doted on us as if we were long lost relatives. He even gave us a generous tasting of the wine that is produced from their vineyard, award winning I was told.
The rooms were comfortable and well appointed - this was a purrfect place to break our long journey through to Plettenberg Bay. Kudos !
