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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the River Manor Boutique Hotel. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming and it had a really nice relaxed, homely feel. The room was beautiful, and we had an amazing, huge bathroom. It was literally a 5 minute walk into town. Fantastic stay.
