    Superb

    I enjoyed the convenient location, the excellent reception and treatment by the staff. Rivierbos met all our needs. It was comfortable and the breakfast was very good. It has ample and secure parking. I will definitely recommend it and will return next year.

    Fabulous

    We stayed one night and arrived late. The room was clean! Comfy bed, quiet setting, off road car park, quite central. Recommend for a cheap but clean and comfortable overnight stay in Stellenbosch. B'fast was simple but nice!

    Entry and exit system after reception is closed is a bit inconvenient.

    We spent a fleeting one day, but we were impressed with thew reception, and overall friendliness of the staff. The venue is clean and neat, we had safe parking. The environment is quiet and peaceful, and safe.the price is very economic and services are good.

    No complaints.

    Rivierbos is situated within walking distance to the Stellenbosch CBD whilst also being in a quiet street. I enjoyed the tranquility of the place. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff, efficient and very friendly and obliging, especially the ladies who work at the front desk.

    Having to ask for toilet paper!! Also, that there are no plugs close to a mirror for blow drying hair.

    Superb

    Our hostess, Dione, was cheerful, helpful and charming. So, including Dione, the gardens, the house, the dining room, everything was pretty, inviting and charming.

    It would have been very helpful if there was another 'resting place' for some of our stuff which we didn't want to put in the cupboard - eg a small table or another chair.

    Fabulous

    The hotel is tucked away in a quiet street, about 5 mins away walking to the central area of town. The hotel staff is fantastic, always accomodating and knowledgeable.

    Cramped room

    What a very nice place for an overnight stay in Stellenbosch! Almost in the heart of town and yet a country feeling. Nice breakfast, secure parking, everything OK.

    location

    Room and bathroom were a little tight for space, could not move freely around either. The view of the garden shed and bakkie canopy was not in keeping with the style of guest house.

    Exceptional

    The Manager, Candice, was very accommodating even to the point of meeting me for check in two hours after the registration office had closed. Very nice, hot-cooked breakfast. Wireless internet worked all the time.

    Small leaks from shower, but this was minor.

    Superb

    The staff at Riberbois did everything they could to make us feel welcome. They helped make arrangements for our arrival and wonderful dinner arrangments. Great staff. Location was very easy to walk all around the city. Loved it all

    Rooms are small for American standards similar to many European B&B establishments

    Very good

    I particularly was impressed by the front office. The receptionist went out of her way to make one feel at home. She was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were always clean and fresh.

    Could improve on breakfast. I missed international news. Please instal Multichoice, etc. to enable viewing BBC, CNN, Sports Channels, etc. Put a small table in room to enable one to do some paperwork
