If you want somewhere where you don't want to meet someone you know...go here...it just doesn't seem possible that you would have to share this very quiet and peaceful place with anyone else, let alone someone you might know! We stayed for two nights in room 6, up the stairs, french doors, adjoining an open balconied sitting area overlooking one... More

we stayed here for 3 nights while visiting Stellenbosch and Franschhoek wine area. Despite the reservations from our agent the hotel had big rooms and good service. The location is excellent and walking distance to the busy town centre. The rooms itself could do with a touch up or renovation.

This period property makes a delightful boutique hotel exuding olde world charm but equipped with all mod cons - free wifi, air conditioning and satellite tv. It can be proud of its excellent staff and offers a well kept garden and pool to relax in . We only stayed two nights but I would have loved to stay longer. Lisa... More

Stayed here for 2 nights at the start of our trip. The hotel is within easy walking distance to restaurants etc. The staff and manager Lisa were very nice . We were put in room number 11 but unfortunately after a couple of hours water started pouring through the ceiling from the room above. They dealt with it immediately and... More

Little boutique short walk to restaurants and bars in Stellenbosch. Arrived early as we had booked a wine tour and the staff kindly looked after our luggage for us and made us a coffee on the veranda before we went out which was a nice touch. Our room was large and decorated nicely in colonial style. Little issues in the... More

River Manor is a great little boutique hotel just a few minutes walk from all the restaurants and bars in Stellenbosh. The hotel itself is lovely and the grounds are pretty and well maintained. Our room was very nice and spacious with a huge bathroom but it would benefit from a bit of an update as it was quite dark.... More

A little gem in Stellenbosch, with personal service. We were greeted on the drive by the Manager Lisa, and another staff member, who introduced themselves and showed us where to park. As it happens there had been a mix up with our booking (I had booked online from Australia and inadvertently booked 2 rooms), however Lisa was able to assist... More

This place has great potential. It requires a great deal of tlc. The room we stayed in was tired and didn't quite work. It was dominated by too much needless furniture that made it very dark. The mattress needed replacing. The staff were lovely and friendly-a huge plus! Though they did forget our wake up call. Thankfully the town bells... More

We spent a couple of nights at the River Manor, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property is lovely, well maintained and our room was quite spacious. The fires in the fireplace each night made for a warm and toasty evening! It was an easy walk to restaurants and shops in downtown. We took an all day wine tour arranged... More
