We greatly enjoyed our stay at River Manor. The staff were friendly, our room was large and well equipped including a big bath. The breakfast selection was large. The hotel was a short walk to the main shopping area of Stellenbosch.

On arrival we weren't sure what to make of the property as it looks a little old and tired from the outside, once inside however its like stepping back in time with lots of period features everywhere. The room we stayed in was huge with a huge,... More

We stayed two nights in this delightful place. The room was HUGE and very well appointed. The bathroom was beautiful and spotlessly clean. The gardens were a delight, very well maintained and a lovely place to eat breakfast. The staff deserve a special mention as they were all, without exception, friendly, helpful and attentive. A wonderful place.

Only spent two nights at this lovely boutique lodge and would love to spend a week! The rooms were spacious and extremely comfortable. The breakfast is to die for!
