Cypress' warm, friendly and caring hospitality was obvious from the first email interaction when they offered to book supper for us at Polka restaurant ahead of our arrival. Their care was extended beyond just the humans in our party but also to our beloved Jessica and Cypress let us know that there would be a garden for her to run around in at the accommodation. We arrived much later than anticipated --past midnight and still Cypress were warm, welcoming and generous with their patience. We had such a lovely stay the first time round travelling to our destination that we chose to again stay at Cypress on the way back home. This meant that we got to experience both Cypress Cottage and Jacaranda Cottage--both equally comfy and very very lovely.
Additionally we are vegan and Cypress went out of their way to make sure our breakfast catered to our dietary preferences.
Overall we felt like more than just customers--we felt like we were welcomed as community members.
Thank you Hillary and Team -- you helped make the kick-off and wind-down of our holiday special.

The fact that they are pet-friendly is wonderful. They make one feel welcome and even went so far as making a reservation at Polka (a must to eat at whilst in town). Staff and owner very friendly and cannot do enough for one.

We have the feeling of being in another days... very charming and authentic place. Very high level of comfort. The cottage is fully equipped. Nice garden, very well maintained, huge space for living and to get rest. Very kind owners and helpful.

Riverbend Self Catering Cottages is beautiful with stunning decor and a lovely little "stoep" where you can relax and braai. The self catering unit has everything you need, from air-conditioning to lovely bedding to keep you warm in the chilly Karoo. The hostess (Hilary) is extremely friendly and goes out of her way to make you feel welcomed. We will definitely be back in the future.
