Gorgeous hotel, set in beautiful grounds which were immaculately cared for. The staff were kind, attentive and helpful and even left us some bubbly and treats to celebrate 30th wedding anniversary. The room was enormous, quiet and very comfortable. It was just a short walk to Stellenbosch which is so pretty. Excellent all round!

We stayed here for 2 nights in Sept with a group of friends from Australia. What a lovely hotel. Fantastic breakfasts. Loved our room near the pool although way too cold to use it. We did the wine tram tour which was fantastic. There were very nice restaurants close by within walking distance for dinner. Our room was huge and... More

Loved this quirky hotel , easy to walk to nearby restaurants and the gardens are so beautiful this time of year with the wisteria in full bloom. Don't expect a good WI fi signal or a menu during the day. It's also in need of a refurb but it didn't matter at all to us as the staff are so... More

Everything was as lovely as we remembered - friendly staff, lovely breakfast, individual rooms - and this time, they didn't run out of wine before we got there!!! (Sorry to mention that Samantha!!!!) Very handy for all the amenities. Love Stellenbosh,... More

We stayed here for two nights and were delighted with the friendly, helpful team and beauty of the property. Made up of two stately old homes the property has a superb old world charm whilst still proving excellent amenity. Across the road from a river and great walking path, which I used each morning and a short walk from restaurants... More

A wonderful oasis of calm in a truly magical village. We stayed in one of the superior rooms which was fabulous. After time travelling round Cape Town the roll top bath was a real treat especially accompanied by a glass of wine. We sadly didn't have time to enjoy the spa and the weather didn't permit us to use either... More

Myself and my husband visited River Manor for 2 nights last month. The hotel is beautifully maintained. Our room was spacious and exceptionally clean. The staff were incredibly helpful, helping us find our way around town and booking us a fantastic wine tour. Breakfast is also fantastic with a range of fruit and continental choices followed by a hot breakfast.... More

The location is great, the hotel is great, the staff are good. Overall it's a great place to base yourself in Stellenbosch within easy walking distance of the town centre. We stayed here a few years ago and it was better but it's still great.

Ideally located near cafes & restaurants. Room was average however the breakfast was tasty and offered a number of choices. Unfortunately dinner was not available. There are 2 pools and evening drinks are available by the poolside. Staff were very courteous and always helpful.

River Manor is situated within walking distance to town centre. Breakfast was super served by friendly staff. Felt our room was a little 'tired' and we had problem with hot water which was fixed after second night. Efficient staff but lacked the extra warmth we experienced elsewhere in SA.
