About Sleeping Beauty Guest House

Nestled at the foot of the Sleeping Beauty Mountain Peak, which never fails to capture the imagination, lies the picturesque town of Riversdale, the floral paradise of the Garden Route.


Sleeping Beauty Guest House is situated in Long Street, the oldest street in the town
where much restoration has taken place. This gracious home, built in 1880 as a Victorian parsonage, has been lovingly restored and offers guests superior accommodation in large well appointed en suite rooms. The focus of our guest house is concentrated on the comfort of our guests who can be assured of a warm welcome and personal attention from their hosts, Jinja and Monica.

The house stands amid a hectare of land in a colourful garden with a river boundary and has panoramic views of the Langeberg Mountains and Sleeping Beauty Mountain Peak, after which our Guest House has been named. Guests can enjoy tea in the garden overlooking the adjacent riding school where the horses and riding pupils provide a great source of interest and entertainment.


We offer dinner by arrangement. This is optional but does need to be prebooked.The delicious meals are personally prepared and include fresh homegrown vegetables and fruit. Alternatively, a booking can be made at one of the local restaurants.


Conference facilities for up to 15 delegates are available

Activities and Attractions

Riversdale has earned its name as the Floral Paradise of the Garden Route because of the abundance of indigenous flora in the surrounding areas. The scenic route through the
Garcia Pass into the Little Karoo is a favourite destination for the fynbos enthusiast. Various fynbos export farms offer guided tours.

For the more adventurous there are hiking trails, 4 x 4 trails, abseiling, and horseback safaris and safe cycling routes. The town also boasts a picturesque 9 hole golf course where visitors are welcome.

Impressive examples of South African art can be viewed at the Julius Gordon Africana Centre which is internationally known as one of its kind in the country and is situated in Long Street, a short walk from the Guest House.

Still Bay and Witsand with their beautiful beaches are only a short drive away and offer great whale watching in season.

So bring your golf clubs, binoculars and hiking boots and experience country life the South African way.


Riversdale is situated 300km East of Cape Town and 400km West of Port Elizabeth on the N2 highway, making it an ideal halfway stop between Cape Town and other Garden Route attractions.
