We had a lovely stay in Villa Toscana - the bedrooms were amazing. The entire house was beautifully clean and well presented. We have a few suggestions for if the villa is to be made available for self catering. There is no place to braai if it rains, so a covered verandah would be perfect. The kitchen needs a few additional items - sharp knives, tupperwares and oven dishes. But overall an amazing place.

I am amazed by the great hospitality I received at River Crossing B&B and SC, needs of guest took priority and courtesy was amazing. Guests that were participating at the MTB race were allowed late checkout because they needed to bath afterwards, and I could clean my bike as well. If I ever visit the area this is definitely a place to stay and worth recommending to others. Outstanding.

We stayed two nights at the River Crossing B&B. The panorama is amazing and stunning. It is very close to Monk´s Cowl to go hiking. It was easy to relax on such a quiet and peaceful premises. Our house was very clean and our hosts were very helpful and attentive. Furthermore we got lots of travelling/restaurant tips.

We really enjoyed our stay at River Crossing, our hosts (Lynette and Philip) were excellent and were most helpful when needed. Our accommodation was great and the setting was just bliss. Brekkie was wonderful and prepared to order, nice and fresh. We would happily recommend this accommodation to individuals, couples and families for a relaxing and peaceful stay but all within easy reach of activities, walking, zip wiring and exploring the area. Thank you Lynett, Phil & Michelle...x

Absolutely Fantastic! River Crossing was the destination for our recent honeymoon. The peace and tranquility my wife and I experienced was unrivalled, accompanied with beautiful sunsets over the berg... the perfect honeymoon. Our hosts were Ernest and Michelle, and not only are they very friendly, but they also know te area very well, and are eager to point you in the right direction for entertainment or dining options. Thanks very much for making our honeymoon so special!
