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

Beautiful grounds with friendly staff. Very nice rooms, great breakfast, very cozy small living rooms with lit fires at night and would have been a 4,5 if I had the option. Not heated pools, and a slightly limited wine selection given it's location.

We spent two nights at the hotel in Room 5 with a terrace overlooking the park across the street. The room is very spacious and beautifully appointed, with high ceilings. Even though it's a cold winter, we were hot sleeping under the thick doona. No problem, the staff happily made adjustments the next day.

We stayed at the River Manor Boutique and Spa from the 18th May for 3 nights. After reading the reviews I was concerned about the size of the rooms. We were allocated room 18, this was a large room with a large bed and a sitting area. We were overlooking the courtyard in between the two unheated swimming pools. The... More

This is a lovely hotel in a great location. Easy to walk into town and great facilities (has two pools). We went in the winter unfortunately so couldn't take advantage. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the room we had was amazing. Try and visit as many wine estates as you can when you stay!

My wife and I stayed at this hotel from Thursday 22nd - Sunday 25th May 2014 on our honeymoon. Incredibly friendly staff, we were greeted with a glass of sparkling wine on our arrival. Rooms are of a good size with a homely feel to them, I even braved jumping into the pool on one of the nights. Staff were... More
