Verified reviewexcellent

Stunning Guest house very well situated in Cape Town. 10 to 15 minutes to all major tourist attractions and walking distance to The Mall. Beautiful large rooms with all the comforts we required. Nothing was the to much for the staff of Riversong who are so friendly and accommodating. We will miss Winner's great breakfasts and our wonderful view of the mountain from our bed each morning. By far the best Guest House we have stayed in and the highlight of our trip to your beautiful country. We look forward to returning and will recomend Riversong to all our friends back home.
