“Laid Back Venue with Superb Views.”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

Glorious linen, exceptional food, outstanding service. I cannot praise this amazing bed and breakfast highly enough. We stayed for a couple of days as a birthday gift to my mother. The rooms were immaculate, the bathrooms stocked with all kinds of added luxury. And the FOOD... The breakfasts are personally catered by Hannetjie the owner of the establishment and they were among the best I have ever eaten.

Room Tip: Upstairs, mountain facing for the very best view of the amazing berg

Riverwalk Bed and Breakfast is perfectly located in Clarens; it's off the busy roads, yet less than 5 minutes easy walk from the centre of town. Our room was neat, spacious and stylish; the bathroom was huge, modern and exceptionally clean. Breakfasts were great - Sufficient fresh variety every morning and always well presented ..... we ate too much!! The personal attention and service of the owners (Johan and Hannetjie) was impeccable. We stayed at the BnB for 3 nights and were extremely happy with the experience. Highly recommendable.

Room Tip: We had one of the larger rooms, which was considerably more spacious than the smaller units. But all...

My husband and I were on our way through to the Cape and decided to stop off in Clarens for the night. I was SO glad we decided to stay at Riverwalk!!!!!!! Hannetjie & Johan, you guys are amazing, you made our 1 year wedding anniversary so special!!

When I called to book, I had originally asked for a room with a patio and a bath however, they were full so we took the last room available. When we arrived Hannetjie was there to greet us with a huge smile and she explained that she had managed to get us the room we wanted, what a star!!!!!! Hannetjie had put champagne in our room and the restuarant she reccomended (The Courtyard) was also out of this world!
Thanks for the world-class breakfast as well! It kept us fueled for our journey ahead :)

Just a big thank you for your hospitality!
This is by far the best BnB we have stayed in!

This is a very nice B&B in picturesque Clarens. Although a small error was made with our booking, it was soon remedied with no inconvenience. The rooms were clean and large and the beds comfortable. It was quite cold in the room but there were radiators which soon warmed the place up, as well as electric blankets, if needed. One minor complaint was the fact that there was no shower curtain with the bath/shower, with the result that, whilst having a shower in the bath, the water went all over the floor! The view of the mountain and surrounding scenery was lovely and it is a very peaceful place. Breakfast was superb - well presented (especially the fruit selection) and extremely tasty. Recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for a lower room if you have problems climbing stairs.

This is a nice place to stay. Rooms are cleans and big. Big and nice breakfast served. I will stay here again.
Getting up and hearing the sounds of birds, clear skies, green all around it. Good feeling after arriving from China.
