Red Tin Roof is a manor house that has been sleeping guests, feeding strangers and quenching thirsts for decades. The new owners gave her a complete facelift and donned her in new colours. Known as a bit of a party animal, they enlarged the bar - and added another! They have re-vamped her from head to toe and decorated her with an eclectic mixture of art and collectibles from around the world.

We were lucky enough to spend a week here in December. Riebeeck Kasteel is a real treat but even better is Red Tin Roof. Stunning, fantastic staff and great service. Food is delicious and totally authentic Portuguese, the peri peri chicken rocks!

The Red Tin Roof should close this room, or advertise it as it is, a small cavern with an uninspiring porch leading off it, right up against a busy stop street. There was a double bunk bed squeezed in the room-not mentioned in the write up, and the mini bar was a dirty bottle of Nescafe and coffee cups. The shower- which burns or freezes you, and the toilet are perched on shutter-board platforms. The breakfast included in the price did not materialise, as the kitchen said they would only be ready by 9a.m.

Room was a nice size. Only three niggles - the aircon is really noisy and ineffective. So all you hear is this loud whining and no cool air. Secondly, the shower is in the bath, but grip or railing to hold onto. Very easy to slip and can cause serious injury. Finally, curtains do not keep light from outside out, so the room in not dark at all when sleeping.

Red Tin Roof was actually not the first problem here- it was the booking via nightsbridge, the online booking platform. We booked the Tretchikoff Room via this platform however when we arrived we were told safarinow booked the blue room for us. We said but that is not we booked and not what we expected? All they said was safarinow / nightsbridge booked the blue room and we could either stay there or in the autumn room. We were looking forward to our separate entrance bedroom with bath and private veranda. We have not been able to stay over anywhere on our own for a year, we were looking forward to this break! Sam couldn't care less. We've emailed the Red Tin Roof and Safarinow with regards to the error and inconvenience caused but have had no response to date. Also the place is in disrepair, dated and falling apart, don't think there has been any maintenance done for years- a very sad place indeed. Would not recommend it at all.

My friend and I really enjoyed our stay in this quaint and interesting hotel. The room was comfortable and clean. The breakfast was scrumptious. Situated in the beautiful village of Riebeek Kasteel. Highly recommended
