About The Riverhouse

The Riverhouse is an elegantly restored Cape Dutch B&B set in a huge garden, with a magnificent 20 m verandah overlooking the Bushman's River in Estcourt. Each spacious room is individually decorated and has a private bathroom, DStv, tea and coffee facilities, heaters, roof fans, and electric blankets.

We offer excellent friendly service in tranquil country surrounds, a sumptuous breakfast, and dinners are available on request. We are conveniently situated close to the CBD, and Estcourt is a great place to stop-over between Johannesburg and Durban. Estcourt is also the gateway to the Drakensberg, the Battlefields, and the Midlands Meander.

The Riverhouse provides a comfortable, professional home away from home for the businessman or tourist. We offer three double rooms in the main house with views of the river, as well as two garden annexes and a family room sleeping four people with self-catering facilities.

It's cozy. It's a home away from home. The host is welcoming. In a cold weather the room is warm and homey.

The bed was comfortable and the old home stunning. Katie is a good hostess. The rooms had a strong smell of bleach which was uncomfortable.The easiest place to get good value for food was the golf course.

Perfect for a halfway stop on the way up to Johannesburg. It had turned chilly that day, the heaters were put on for us and we had electric blankets on the bed, it was really comfy and warm. Great service. We ate dinner at the Golf Club and it was really good.
