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.

If you want to relax in a proper way this is the Town and the guest house for you. A lovely couple run a splendid establishment in the quietest of places. Riebeek Kasteel is an amazing little Town that is probably no different now to what it was 100 years ago. Leon and Martina have set up a cracking place...

Quaint little guest house. Really charming setting. Wish we could've spent more time at this conveniently located spot. Comfortable room with little outside area looking onto a vegetable patch. TV and AC in room.

This is a clean, tidy and comfortable place which is near town but nice and quiet. Amazing shower, lovely linen and a splash pool. Private porch to sit and contemplate life on. Good value for money, highly recommended.

We spent 2 nights in the lovely en-suite flatlet behind the main house. It was neat and comfortable with all the basics - aircon, tea, coffee, rusks, milk, bar fridge and microwave. The pool is conveniently situated just a few paces from the flatlet's door ... very welcome on hot summer days like the ones we experienced (well-over 30 degrees)....

We are from Japan, stayed 5 nights. Very quiet in night, and clean and comfortable room, so we could sleep very well. The owners were very kind and friendly. Also, nice braai. Next year, if I go to Riebeek-Kasteel again, I would like to stay Olyfenhuis again.

Olyfenhuis is a beautiful, luxurious guest house in the equally beautiful Reibeek Kasteel. We felt truly pampered and indulged in such a lovely place. The owners were very welcoming and made us feel right at home. We only wish we could have stayed longer.
