In a beautiful spot on the Bushmans River, tucked away in verdant bushland, our wooden chalet was the perfect getaway. Peace and quiet, river views and exquisite sunsets, comfortable accommodation of generous proportions, we could not have asked for anything better. Our hosts

Hi Mary Thank you for your comments. We so enjoyed having you and Graham to stay. Great chatting about commercial disclosure and director responsibility. It made it all relevant after the Steinhof debacle. Thank you for coming to spend your last evening with us. I hope we see you both again soon.

Such an open and so friendly family home with happy and contented hosts complete with a manic dog Phoebe! Ask to please stay for dinner and put your knees under their table for a delicious supper and lively conversation. Sit on the stoop and enjoy a drink overlooking the river.

We stayed at River Roost with our two young daughters in October, and had the pleasure of experiencing both the self-catering cottage and the guesthouse. The cosy log cabin cottage was spacious, clean and well equipped, surrounded by nature and wonderfully close to the river so

Hi Mary Thank you for your review. We love big happy families staying with us and look forward to your return. Come in the summer when it is a lot cooler down here than in Salt Rock. We are working on the garden so there should be a few extra places for the girls to explore. Have a wonderful 2018. Please send warm regards to Simon, Sienna & Tahla

"The tip is to have a car or arrange your own transportation, since River Roost is beyond walking distance from town."
"All the rooms are peaceful and there is a self cater cottage too."
"The self-catering cottage on the edge of the Bushman's River is a must. Secluded and comfortable with stunning views and amazing birdlife"
"room facing the river is the best"
"Request a room with view. The cottage is beautiful but the road steep and difficult to access."
