My husband and I visited the hotel whilst on honeymoon. The hotel is just beautiful, perfect for a relaxing and romantic getaway. The owners are just lovely, so tentative and welcoming. There was the added bonus of Kitty, who was just adorable 😺 I would definitely recommend this hotel!

Very friendly and helpful staff, great location-only a 3 or 4 minute walk into town, very spacious room with balcony.. Breakfast was made to order and was delicious.. If you are visiting Stellenbosch then stay here! We did not want to leave!

Nice hotel with good service, perfectly located for visiting one (or more realistically several) of the local vinyards. Didn't eat in the resteraunt (other than vbreakfast) - which was excellent, as the hotel is easily in wlaking distance of many fine bars and resteraunts. We had a great room, not ideal for anyone with mobility issues, with a windy staircase... More

We had high expectations of The River Manor. It is beautifully situated, the staff friendly and helpful the pools are lovely and the Terrace where we sat for breakfast very pleasant. Our room was at the top of an outside staircase which was steep and not for anyone with mobility problems. We were given the option to change however there... More

We stayed there for one night during a roadtrip through south africa, and had a great time! Special thanks go to the receptionist (unfortunately, we forgot her name) that recommended to us dinner at Overture Restaurant (and also made the reservation for us!) - because we had a lovely evening! The room was bright, spacious and perfectly clean, as were... More

We stayed overnight at this lovely hotel on our 25th wedding anniversary holiday. It was a wonderful experience. The staff were really helpful and friendly. The room was gorgeous, with a huge bathroom and very comfortable bed. The location is just right - a short walk to the main area, but tucked away in a quiet street.

We spent two nights at this wonderful hotel as part of a secret escape South Africa trip. We could not have chosen a better hotel ourselves. Wonderful welcome from Tanya who offered us a choice of rooms, the first we saw we fell in love with and accepted. Large room with entrance lobby, super king bed, beautiful antique style furnishing,... More

We stayed here in early May during a tour of the wine estates. Unfortunately it was only for one night, wish we could have stayed longer. Room was lovely, staff friendly and efficient, they couldn't do enough for us. Would love to return for longer.

We stayed here for a few nights in April, had a great time. Lovely friendly staff (and cute little cat). Our room was really big & luxurious and there were lovely communal spaces to enjoy some food and a drink, very close to town as well which was great for us. The staff were brilliant as they booked us restaurants... More

We had a very enjoyable stay in this unique hotel, only a short walk from the town centre in a quiet residential part of town. The staff were extremely helpful and the rom was very comfortable. The only criticism we had was that our door to the room was very hard to open and close without banging it hard becasue... More
