Relaxing, Reflecting, River views @ Riverton. A darling little township, resting on the Jacobs River Estuary has a few surprises in store for a stopover. The Bed & Breakfast we chose was the 4 R's, situated up off the main road, so we had wonderful views of the harbour and the night lights from the balcony where we sat and drank a glass of wine and watched the afternoon sun go down. Our room was spacious, warm and welcoming. A very comfy bed and the room lacked for nothing, there was even a very thoughtful lolly jar, much to the delight of my dizzy blonde. Gay is a most welcoming and engaging hostess, with personality plus, made us feel like part of the family. We shared an impromptu supper with her and her husband., and in the morning we had a most sumptous breakfast I have ever had, you name it is was there, local, fresh and plenty to choose from, incredibly satisfying. We left at our leisure, feeling we had made two new friends.
Thank you Gay!
