We stayed here in July for 2 nights and absolutely loved our stay. The owners were some of the sweetest people we met in Stellenbosch and made it a priority that we enjoyed our stay. They chatted with us at breakfast and did not let us lift a finger when it came to booking tours and reservations. The property is... More

This was our last stop on our honeymoon, booked through Kuoni. Unfortunately our arrival in Stellenbosch didn't go completely as planned: our taxi driver didn't know where this place was, and on our arrival it took over 30mins to get into the hotel. When someone (another guest) eventually let us in, we were told that there had been a power... More

We stayed here for one night, but wished we could stay longer just to enjoy the excellent hospitality! the hotel is very nice, close to the centre of stellebosch yet just off the busy streets. the service was second to none, and the food and wine suggestions given by the owner should be followed! Great hotel, great people

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
