This is what recent guests had to say:


"Very nice, comfortable, relaxing and quiet. My good rating for the facilities is the cottage itself. Extremely comfortable, fully equipped for the purpose of self catering. the personal touches on arrival is also nice as well as the small little things like an iron which most self catering establishments don't always available for the guest without asking. I would like the Wifi coverage maybe to be stronger, it was very easy to log on but not too good coverage in the bedroom. Maybe also looking that the beautiful little quaint (charming) lodge has easy access to channels or their own dstv channels. Minor little things which is not too important for me which would have me staying there again and only requesting the self catering lodge but for the next visitor maybe something they may like." Adam Buys, (ZA)
"Wonderful! The hosts were the best I've ever encountered! By being professional and friendly, they made a huge difference by offering to help with everything we needed. I'd love to support them again. There are no serious problems but the Wi-Fi connection was not strong, the shower left a little to be desired and we struggled a little with "deep cleaning" some of the kitchen equipment simply because we didn't have a strong scrubbing brush. But these little things can easily be overlooked because the comfort of the accommodation more than makes up for it." Broc Rademan, (EG)
"Very friendly service and good value for money."Johan Heunis, (ZA)
"Very spacious, clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated; friendly hosts. The self catering unit is very spacious and comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated. It is located in a quiet neighbourhood with beautiful old historical houses. We felt completely at home. The hosts were very warm and friendly and we were welcomed with a gift. The hosts graciously offered to book Dinner at the local Hotel, which we accepted and we loved their recommendation - the meal exceeded our expectations. In addition to the spacious unit, there is a private patio and outside area where one can relax. Highly recommended! Nothing not to like. All aspects met and exceeded our expectations. " Laetitia Havenga, (ZA)
"Very friendly hosts. Very quaint and comfy. Decor A+" Michelle, (ZA)
"Friendly and welcoming place in a small town worth to visit. Sehr nette, freundliche Gastgeber Charles und Esmé die obendrein mit einem kleinen Geschenk die Erwartungen noch übertrafen. Sehr gut ausgestattetes Appartement mit DSTV in einem schönen Haus mit Veranda in zentraler und ansprechbarer Lage. Riversdale hat mehr zu bieten als man vermuten könnte. Berge laden ein zum Wandern, gutes Winetasting unmittelbar am Stadtrand und eine Gin Destillerie (Inverroche) mit leckeren Verkostungen und hervorragenden Gin in vielen Variationen. Komme sehr gerne wieder! Am Abend ist in Riversdale wenig los aber untertags doch lebhaft." Gebhard, (AT) 
"Nostalgia is a self catering facility. Location is excellent, very convenient to everything that I needed. The unit was beautifully furnished, with a lot of love and thought put into it. The owners went over and above to be helpful and friendly, get not pushy. Wonderful experience, will recommend to anybody who needs accommodation in Riversdale or surrounds." Karen Rudnick, (ZA)
"The perfect halfway point between PE and Cape Town! I LOVED this place. Only 3 minutes off the N2, a peaceful - beautifully decorated little garden cottage and the most gracious hosts you can imagine. They even fetched my take away meal because I was exhausted! The beds and pillows were also REALLY comfortable! Value for Rand is absolutely incredible - wouldn’t change a thing! "  Jan O’Connor, (ZA)

"Attention to detail, comfort & cleanliness is outstanding! The attention to detail, comfort & cleanliness of the accommodation is outstanding & a credit to Esme & Charles who made use extremely welcome. The cool drink on arrival & bag of homemade treats & goodies was a particularly nice touch. Nothing was too much trouble for them & we immediately felt at home being able to relax & wind down after our long drive from Cape Town. Charles helped us make best use of our one night stay with local information & places to visit. It is unfortunate that we were just passing through heading for the Garden Route but visit highly recommended." Judith Spark, (GB)

It is in a quiet street and close to a nice pass in the mountains (Gracia) and a supermarket." Jacqueline, (NL)
"Ein etwas verstecktes glänzendes Juwel. Ein kleines Juwel mitten an der Route Port Elizabeth und Kapstadt. Herzliche warme Atmosphäre, sehr grosszügig ausgestattet und "traumhaft" ruhig. - Aufgefallen sind mir nebst der liebenswürdigkeit der Gastgeber alle die kleinen Details, die vom Herzblut als Betreiber eines Gästehauses Zeugnis geben. - Für mich eine feste Adresse, wenn ich unterwegs nach PEZ oder zurück nach Kapstadt unterwegs bin. Ich hatte zuwenig Zeit um die schöne elegante Dogge zu herzen. " Jürg, (DE)
"Comfortable, simple and refreshing. We loved getting a sense of the daily farm life, a great view and peace and quiet. We prefer to stay on our own and the spot is very private. It was a comfortable stay and a great nights' rest in a very comfortable bed. The welcome pack from the owners added to a special touch. It was all exactly as we were prepared for. Nothing we did not like." Nichelle, (ZA)
"Great Accommodation in a little Town called Riversdale. The place was super clean and comfortable for lots of relaxation. Especially loved the front porch where we enjoyed our Saturday morning catching up with family members from the Town. Our hosts, Charles and Esme were amazing and went out of their way to make us feel at home. Beautiful place in a quiet Town with wonderful people. Strongly recommend. No negatives worthy of a mention." Deirdre Pedro, (ZA)
"Eine sehr schöne Unterkunft bei uns an der Strecke von Knysna nach Hermanus. Liebevoller empfang durch das Paar das die Unterkunft btreibt mit einem leckeren Präsent für uns Gäste. Die Unterkunft ist sehr stilvoll eingerichtet. Wir haben noch viele Tipps für die weitere Reise mitgenommen. Waldbrand (in sicherer Entfernung) und Sturm hatten erst das Internet (kam dann wieder) und dann den Strom lahmgelegt. Das Frühstück war aber auch ohne Strom möglich, da der Herd mit Gas funktionierte und Streichhölzer im Schrank lagen. Der Herbergswirt hat sich mehrfach erkundigt, ob wir wegen des Stromausfalls etwas benötigen." Stefan , (DE)
"Very professional and excellent! The calmness of the environment." MaryJunl , (ZA)
