The perfect guesthouse!
Riverside lodge in Oudtshoorn is an amazing guest house. Every last detail in the room and lodge is thoughtfully planned to the enjoyment of guests. Big and spacious rooms, Beautifully decorated, spotlessly cleaned. Breakfast was a delight. Plenty and tasty. Its definitely the best guesthouse we've ever been in. Thank you Elza and Albert for being perfect hosts.

We will return.
We really loved our stay at this lodge from the minute we arrived to leaving. Hosts absolutely went the extra mile by having our car washed, providing us iced water and chocolates for the night. Also had free welcome drinks and snacks. Beautiful outdoor views, pool and seating area. Cottage was very well stocked with lots of attention to detail. Very comfortable beds and pillows. Good free internet.

Fantastic place with great hosts.
Absolutely beautiful place to go. The lodge and the rooms are exceptional. The hosts, Elsa and Albert have a drinks reception at 6pm in the evening so you can meet the other guests. Got a great recommendation for a restaurant for dinner. Just disappointed I only booked for 1 night.

Stayed in one of the 2 cottages. The location of the lodge is set on near a river where much birdlife is in earshot and in sight. Albert and Elza were great hosts with a thorough orientation of the lodge and surrounding areas. The cottages have a rustic decor but are immaculately kepy and are very spacious and well-equipped. The cottage can very comfortably sleep 4 to 5 people - there is a double bed in the master bedroom, a bunk bed with 2 single beds and a single chaise that could be used for small children. There is a prepared fireplace with firewood and tinder supplied. We made little use of the kitchen but includes a 2 plate stove, fridge and plenty of crockery and cutlery. The hosts held an evening reception with wine and snacks. As part of the stay, they ensured that their custodial staff cleaned our rental vehicle. Overall a very good stay with great service in a beautiful setting. Would have really liked to spend more time in the lodge and area.
