Wir waren für eine Nacht in diesem Hotel.
Unsere Erfahrung war leider sehr negativ.

Das Haus wird oder wurde scheinbar gerade renoviert.
Im ganzen Haus war krach und es stank nach Farbe.
Unser Zimmer war das kleinste von bisher 12 Unterkünften auf unserer Rundreise. Das Fenster bzw. die Schiebetür konnte man nicht öffnen, da direkt davor der Durchgang/Flur zu den Zimmern war und dazu noch die Bauarbeiter an einem Tisch davor pausierten.

Dazu roch es sehr unangenehm im Zimmer. Das Bad war sehr veraltet und aus dem Wasserhahn für warm-Wasser kam nur gelbes Wasser, egal wie lange man es laufen lies.

Das Frühstück war mehr als spärlich und keiner interessierte sich dafür, dass wir keine Teller und Besteck hatten.

Auf keinen Fall wieder!

Helt okey boende. Ligger väldigt centralt och bra i Stellenbosch. Det finns en liten pool och parkering om du har en hyrbil. Rummen är rätt små men rena. Är du känslig för ljud tänk till för det är lyhört.

review by Kim Bernheden

"Good budget option"

The rooms were clean and functional - nothing fancy or elaborate. The breakfast was a plus, as was the proximity to town.

La gente es muy amable y el desayuno está rico.

review by Pedro Machado


I had booked my parents in at Rivierbos this past weekend. They are pensioners, so although they aren't demanding customers, they prefer a quiet, private space.
They were pleased with everything - peaceful location near the river, pleasant garden area, clean, well-appointed room and good breakfast.

Good internet, good beds, awesome location close to the main street. Not super-luxurious, but a good balance between comfort and value. Friendly and helpful staff.
