We were delighted with every aspect of Riversong. Outstanding in so many ways, but best of all are its staff. Unbelievably helpful and efficient, with no request too much trouble. Even to making us a picnic lunch, ready at 6am for a day walk. We will definitely be back and highly recommend it.
Each and everyone including the owner was dedicated to making the guests feel at home, each one of them was so friendly and caring, and the guest house has everything you need and more than one nice sitting area where you can chill and the view is amazing.
At Riversong they have really thought of everything you might need and are ready to provide whatever you might want. Really superior comfort at a very reasonable price.
Not so great if you don't have a car because in SA you can't walk anywhere at night - so have to order cabs if you want to go out in the evening to eat.

Nice room, large comfy bed, good furnishings. Breakfast very good. Good location for theatres and restaurants
Open plan room and loo - don't mind bath in room but like a separate loo! We had the end room opening into the courtyard - pool area. We had no designated place to sit outside comfortably.
The staff were very helpful. Aaron in particular was outstanding and cooked a really great breakfast.
My room was noisy and I could hear the gentleman in the next door room blowing his nose. I was also woken up someone coming home through the front door in the very early hours of the morning.
great view comfortable and close to my Kelvin Grove where I was based
Open loo which I see a lot of these days and which is not great for a twosome
Good location, luxurious, clean with great service. Big comfortable beds in large rooms.
The Wifi wasn't great - patchy and weaker based on lots of people were using it. Also breakfast could have more variety - more relevant if you stay for a long time.
Rooms were spacious, staff friendly. Central location.
The staff were incredible - very helpful and kind. We were travelling from Durban to Cape Town and I booked online when we were in CT and had an instant responce. The room was beautiful and clean and the staff made our stay a pleasure. We will go back !!
*Secure garage parking *Lovely gardens *Comfy bed *Bedside lamps that functioned *TV *hairdryer with a mirror at dressing table plus plug *self catering option *yummy pastries, fruit and cereal for breakfast *blanket in the cupboard
*bath too narrow * not enough glasses, cups and plates and no dishwashing liquid to wash the 2 glasses, cups and plates available *chicken sausage and awful bacon
Nice view of the mountain between the trees.
Towels were thin, worn, stiff and not fluffy - need to be replaced. Had to announce myself at breakfast to request service. Photographs are not true to size of place (looks bigger) Chairs in room and breakfast area need new stuffing in seats!
Friendly, helpful staff. Well maintained property, comfortable and quiet with all of the essentials.
Friendly staff Bathroom nice
The room was too cluttered. Too many bits of furniture and stuff on tables and rugs etc
Incredible attention to detail, with an owner who goes the extra mile! Friendly efficient staff. Very comfortable and convenient with a great breakfast!
Nothing to not like!
Close to Newlands
