What a bad experience. Rooms are old, linen are thorn, the kettle is not working and the outside light at the sliding door cant switch off so it is daylight in the room. The aircon unit outside is so noisy, you cant sleep.

"Quick in and out"

We had a function in Dorp Street and were looking for an affordable B&B, walking distance from the event. Rivierbos was perfect for our quick in and out. The room was spacious and clean and everything we needed. We felt welcome from the moment we walked through the door. Great stay and definitely recommended. They have an awesome selection of teas at the breakfast buffet.
