I loved it here - have tried various places previously and this one definitely the best. We did have a good room, the family room with ample space and our own little garden which was private and we were able to sit in the sun. Martina was a super-host and really looked after us well. It's about 5-10 minutes walk into the little town so that too was perfect.

We decided to stay over in Riebeeck on the spur of the moment and stayed in a lovely appointed twin room with a kitchenette in the rear of the property. Lots of attention to detail and all the sport channels! Also has a pool in the back for the really hot days!

From the photos, you can already gauge that this fairytale-style accommodation was designed to make you feel right at home. But the decor has nothing on the hospitality of the landlord, Martina, who upon hearing that we would like to do a cooking course moved us to a larger cottage so we could have the course in the comfort of our own cottage. The cottages are equipped with aircon (which is a must in summer), tea and coffee making facilities (including a plunger which is a big plus for a coffee snob like me) and an honesty fridge filled with yogurt and drinks. This is the perfect spot if you are looking for a comfortable weekend away.

Clean rooms, fantastic beds, awesome towels and a friendly owner who even kept an eye on our two kids, while we attended a wedding. The region is suffering a terrible drought. Guests should be sympathetic to that when they realize the pool is closed. We will return there any time.

My Wife, her sister, my son and his girlfriend, myself attended a family wedding in Riebeek Kasteel, and this was the perfect place, neat, tidy, all amenities to chill out after our trip from Johannesburg, and then also prepare for the wedding and then the quite nights sleep afterwards. Our hosts were also extremely accommodating and gave us advice on where to go in the area before our return. Also extremely affordable and recommended.
