What an absolute gem, nestled in Constantia. Beautiful all round with amazing people, this is sure to be on your bucket list of places to stay! It's positioned in close proximity to a variety of sites, including wine farms and the picturesque Tanle Mountain. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious and very well kept and truly brings the Cape feel... More

I come to Cape Town at least once a year and this is the best place I have found to stay if you are looking for something that central to the Southern suburbs of Cape Town. This little, quaint B&B ticks all the boxes: beautiful French themed, spacious rooms; best value for money; great location and excellent service.

We spent one week here staying in the Robin’s Nest suite. One week was not long enough! Excellent accommodation, very spacious, bright, and well appointed. It had everything you could need and more, with the option to self cater. There is a ceiling fan but no air conditioning. There is separate access to the suite and there is secure parking... More

Riverlea is a treasure. The two main suites are bright and spacious and clean, each with a kitchenette area. We were six women traveling together, so we also took over the little bedroom attached to one of the suites. A delicious breakfast was served in a pretty glassed-in porch, on our time schedule. Terry, our hostess, was incredibly friendly and... More

We have stayed in many guest houses all over the world (and Cape Town) and this has to be by far the best! The suites are just perfect - we could have easily moved in there forever.

We have been regular guests at Riverlea for about 20 years and we have never been disappointed. Terry and Tim have maintained and even improved on the excellent accommodation. The two suites are tastefully appointed with separate entrances. Off-street parking is provided. The house is in a secluded quiet area and close to shops (Constantia Mall). There are only 2... More

We've returned several times over almost ten years. Recently completed a month there and found the standards as excellent as ever. Terry, the landlady, is outstanding and the hospitality is always wonderful. The room is very comfortable indeed, the location very convenient - whether going to the city or down the peninsula. I could not recommend it more highly.
