The staff were very friendly and the rooms are so well kept. Home away from home. Jessica was so helpful, she really made our stay comfortable. We arrived late and she made sure that lights and heater are switched on in our room before we arrive.

Wow what a beautiful place. The room was beautiful, spacious and clean. The owner is very nice, the breakfast was worth every cent. We really enjoyed our time there and should we visit clarens again we are definitely booking Riverwalk bed and breakfast.

The only thing that I can fault was the lack of forks and knifes in the room and I believe that that can be fixed. Overall thank you for the great hospitality we will surely recommend the place.

After 13 years we stayed again at Riverwalk - it was as comfortable as before. Hannnetje is a welcoming host and Jermaine looked after us mindful. His hot breakfast, especially the Peri-peri Chicken Livers, make a great start for the day. We booked the Loft Room no7, which is big, bright and welcoming, with a huge bathroom. A separate lounge and stoep to share with another room are a gerat bonus. You just need to be able to climb several steps, the last ones to the loft rooms are narrow and steep. The house is spotless clean, in a quiet cul de sac.

More than a B&B is a small hotel.  The location is rural, nevertheless, a short walk to the center of Clarens. I loved  that huge and beautiful wipping willow!

The rooms are well appointed and spacious but they have some issues with the drains, we had to move rooms due to sewage smell and the shower water pressure was dissappointed.  Bedding was a bit weird with all kinds of blankets and covers when a nice duvet would have been just perfect...  I understand it is my personal choice but also would make housekeeping's job so much easier

My biggest concern is about breakfast, once again too complicated.  On arrival you are handed a huge list of options and the time you want your breakfast.  So many items that make you wonder how can they deliver.    The hot breakfast turned to be a bit of a disaster as it was difficult to deliver all the items promised. 

Just like the bedding, make breakfast simple, you got a nice little buffet where you can place your cold items and offer a hot English:  pork sausage, a bit of mushroom, back bacon and either fried or scramble eggs, that's all.   Nothing better than a freshly cooked egg.

Don't get me wrong, this place is nice, just... Simplified it!

We booked 2 rooms for 2 nights in June 2022
Beds were uncomfortable and noisy - creaked every time you moved
Hair dryer has round 2 point plug - neither of our rooms had an adaptor to accomodate the plug.
Electric blanket only worked on 1 side of the bed.
Rebecca was sweet, and the breakfast was good.

The place is absolutely spectacular and the host was hospitable and helpful- probably the the best place in Clarens just from looking around. It is professional and worth the buck. You feel you are at a breakaway with stunning scenery and with a pair of sneakers its a lovely short walk from the B&B to the Clarens square and all amenities. No other place to stay for me when going to the lovely quaint Clarens.

Overall an excellent weekends stay at Riverwalk B&B. The host, Hannetjie, was very friendly and helpful, the room was neat and spacious, plus the breakfast was very good.
We will definitely re-visit in the near future.

Thank you for a fantastic stay. The room was great, filtered water was available, the view was beautiful, there is a trial run a few meters from the property, and the breakfast was amazing. The reception and kitchen staff was very friendly.

Personally contacted us day before to confirm arrival time, we were warmly welcomed and room was ready. Very clean, spacious and comfy.Close enough to walk to Clarens Town square and a nature walk along the river on its doorstep.
