This is a 6-room older-style establishment, more a B&B than a hotel. The staff were very hospitable, with a welcoming drink on the evening of arrival. The location is in the centre of town, and has an external deck overlooking the river valley and on-site secure parking.

We stayed at Riverside Lodge and found the place very warm and welcoming. The room had a very comfortable bed and a small bathroom with a shower. We were invited to have a drink in the early evening with other guests which was very nice. Unfortunately did the electricity stop working in the middle of the night which turn off...

Lovely boutique guest house in Oudtshoorn, easy walking distance to local restaurants in an evening. The room was tastefully decorated and the owner gave good recommendations about the area. The breakfast was lovely and cooked to order and the outside area had seating to relax and enjoy the view. Welcome drinks were a nice touch. I would definitely recommend.

Back again in this very pretty Guest house. The room was large, very clean with everything you would need. The staff are excellent and helpful. There is a 5pm get together with all the guests with drinks offered by the guest house.

Good location, within easy walking distance of restaurants. Certainly a different - albeit interesting - guest house from the normal ones we visited on our Garden Route trip. Breakfast fare ok, freshly cooked to order. Very spacious bedroom indeed

Stayed here for one night while doing the garden route. Lovely warm welcome to a very nice property. Great reception areas and a lovely deck to relax on after a hard day out looking over the river. Room we had was a reasonable size , very clean and beautifully decorated, nice en suite. Bed very comfy. Lots of great extras...

The place was clean and convenient a nice getaway for the night. However it was a bit pricy relative to other places in the area. The pictures are very misleading.... It is more of a convenience stay than a relaxing get away but it was good.

Riverside Lodge is situated on the banks of the Grobbelaar river in the most peaceful, scenic surrounds. This boutique guesthouse is definitely worthy of its 4 star grading. The lodge room, with a full en-suite bathroom, was spacious, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Breakfast was a treat with both continental and English on offer. The owners are friendly, informative and most...
