My friends and I were here for the World Cup, and were witness to some award-winning hospitality by Bev, Margaret and her team. They were accomodating, helpful and extremely friendly.
The guest house itself is beautiful. Very often, photos can disguise what might be a somewhat disappointingly ordinary residence, but in this case, we felt Sand River was a real treat, complete with a genuine wood fireplace.
Some travellers might find some of the standard (non-courtyard, I think?) rooms on the small side, but overall I myself found it comfortable enough, and the underfloor heating and heated blankets more than made up for it.
While we were here in winter, I suspect Sand River Guest House will be absolutely gorgeous in the summer.
The only possible downside is the slightly spotty Wi-Fi, but don't let that stop you from staying at Sand River as the service, hospitality and indeed everything else more than makes up for it!
