Lovely guest house. Very quaint and peaceful in a very convenient location. Pays great attention to little details in their services and facilities. Does not promise too much, but delivers excellently what it does promise. Definitely a home away from home.

Good location, very close to the airport (this is why we chose it), good hospitality, good breakfast, clean room but close to a well-travelled street, thus too noisy, not good for who, like me, is a light sleeper.

I spent a wonderful five nights as a guest as this really nice Guest house, James was a fantastic host and breakfast was wonderful too. Idyllic gardens, with such peaceful tranquility. Definitely worth stopping at, plus Joneses Restaurant isn't a bad choice for dinner, just mention the River Road and he'll make sure you have an enjoyable evening.

Thank you Fraser and Madeleine for such a wonderful time at your guest house. I came down with 2 other judges to judge the SA Showing Champs in October. It was so pleasant to come back home after a long, hot days judging to kick off our boots and be surrounded by tranquil and calm surroundings. Will most definitely advise...

The room was very nice, we had a coffee maker and a small refrigerator, with bottled water and a hair dryer, all extra things that make your stay nicer. The owners are very personable and helpful in giving directions. Would not hesitate to stay there again. Congratulations on winning the Bed and Breakfast award for 2016!

River Road was outstanding. The welcome was warm, the rooms were comfortable and clean. It was a great stay. We were visiting family in the Walmer area so the locations was excellent for us. Good value too.

we flew into PE and stayed overnight at River Road Guest House - everything was so spot on and we were very comfortable. Our breakfast was conveniently packed for the road as we left really early the next morning for Plett - so enjoyable. Will definately refer to friends. Thank you.

The River Road guest house is the perfect base for exploring PE. The hosts were very welcoming and the room had all the extras that make life easier. The waffle and ice cream offered for breakfast gave it a real holiday feel.
