We were so impressed with this venue. We were sent messages of exactly how to enter the property, given tips on where to eat and visit a few days before arrival. The actual cottages were super clean, organised and simply perfect. We loved our stay here-thank you.

We stayed at Riverbend for one night. The cottages are comfortable, spacious and clean. Safe parking for your vehicle. Annemarie was such an attentive hostess. It will be our first choice if we need to stay in Graaff-Reinet again.
