Business Trip
Riverbos Guest House Is a convenient stay if you are on a business trip.Just of Dorp St at the end of a Cul De Sac. with secure parking. The Building is in want of a bit of maintenance. I have stayed here on all my business trips Now was the fifth time and I have seen it gradually deteriorate over time. The staff are always friendly and helpfull.

The location is tops.The groundfloor room was abit noisy due to the front door alongside,so my advice is a first floor room.The breakfAst was super,and overall I would give the guesthouse a 85/100 rating.

Average stay but ok for the price
We expected a bit more, was ok for the price i guess. Felt a bit run down, had to change rooms because first room was right next to kitchen and had rubbish outside window. No toilet paper in room. Friendly staff though. Limited tv channels, felt a bit like a dorm. Ok for one night sleep.

Quaint guesthouse in a quaint town
Had a short one night stay in Stellenbosch and Riverbos was a great choice. You enter via a gated courtyard which has 24-hour manned security (although it doesn't seem necessary in such a quaint area). The staff was very helpful, providing great recommendations in town for food and wine. The breakfast was tasty and a great start to the day. Would definitely stay here again.
