I had an extremely pleasant experience. I forwarded a positive report to the AIDT regarding your guest house. The location was picturesque, river frontage peaceful and the room extremely comfortable. I would like to suggest including green tea in your room for people like me.

After a 8 hour drive this is the place you want to arrive to. The long driveway through a vineyard eases the stress, so by the time you get to the reception you're well chilled out. Great service, amazing staff, and rooms that exceeded expectations. Rolling lawns lead to the infinity pool, and a magic view over the river. If...

River Place Manor was an excellent place to stay after 2 weeks trekking in Namibia. Our grandchildren were ecstatic that a McDonald's restaurant was nearby (our first visit to a fast food restaurant in 2 weeks). We enjoyed both the sunset and sunrise along the Orange River from our rooms. We thoroughly enjoyed our South African breakfast. Excellent Value.

Set in well kept gardens beside the Orange river. Clean, spacious and very comfortable rooms. The dining area and sitting room were delightful. Dinner menu although limited was worth staying in for, and the breakfast was delicious.

We recently stopped at River Place Manor en route from the Richtersveld back to Johannesburg. All I can say is what an absolutely beautiful place, the location is superb, the rooms are luxurious, service is second to none, food is excellent and our only regret is that we didn't have more time there.
