I would highly recommend the Riverside Guest Lodge - but don't just stay 1 night! It truly is an oasis in the heart of Oudtshoorn. Lovely accommodation, great attention to detail and friendly, helpful hosts.

What a fantastic place to stay! It was extremely comfortable and clean, and so much thought had been put into every small detail to make our stay as lovely and memorable as possible. Staying here was a highlight of quite a busy trip, and we have already mentioned this amazing place to so many friends and family. The breakfast in the morning was delicious, really fantastic! Staying at Riverside Guest Lodge is truly an absolute treat!

Albert& Elza were excellent at making us feel welcome and comfortable from the moment we arrived and throughout our stay at the lodge. They were always available to handle our request or questions. The log cottages looks amazing and is a bliss to stay in. It has everything that you would need for your stay, under normal circumstances. Our kids had a fun time running around, under our watchful eye in the secured lodge. I will definitely be returning there for another stay in the near future. JC

A very beautiful old house furnished with amazing antiques in a picturesque setting on the river. We stayed in the luxury suite and it was nice and spacious. We had a lovely breakfast and we could walk to a restaurant for dinner nearby. All in all a very pleasant overnight stay.

We had a great one night stay at Riverside Guest Lodge, in the self catering accommodation. We were two adults and two children and found everything very much to our liking. From the accommodation itself, to the balcony and relaxing view and sunset, the braai that was brought to our verandah for us, the water and chocolates left outside our unit at night to the cutlery and crockery and general equipment in the unit. They have a great balcony on the main Lodge with a small pool and an honesty bar which is also well stocked! I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for somewhere to stay in Oudtshoorn! Thanks very much for hosting us :)
