Our stay here was absolutely lovely.

Firstly, each and every one of the staff were incredibly kind, welcoming and helpful. They couldn't have made us feel more at home.

The rooms were lovely. One of the houses was being refurbished whilst we were there, but the house we stayed in was utterly charming, cosy and unique. The beds were so comfy, everything immaculately clean.

The breakfast, although simple, was delicious. The fruit salad has to be the best I've ever had!

Both pools were lovely, and had it been warmer I am sure we would have all jumped right in!

I went on a run each morning around the town, and River Manor was the perfect starting spot. It is ideally located and so beautiful. The people are lovely around the town too - there really is no need for a gym at the hotel!

Thank you for such a lovely stay, we can't fault you at all. Hopefully will see you at some point in the future!

Room Tip: Wifi best available downstairs.

I spent 2 night here on Business in Stellenbosch, and found it extraordinary, the staff were super helpful and friendly and the comfort levels of the rooms all above my expectations. I can highly recommend this place.

We had a lovely time in this boutique hotel. We arranged for a suite which was very spaceous and clean.
The hotel throughout was well kept but slightly outdated (old windows etc), but i do understand this was an old building made up to be a hotel.
Staff very nice and welcoming.
Breakfast was lovely and tasty.
Hotel located very close to main street with restaurants and shops.
And we had a wine tasting day trip tour arranged by hotel staff which was definitely worth doing (and fun:))

We stayed for two nights in this hotel and had the suite. The service at the reception is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The breakfast service is quick and offers good choice at high quality. The hotel is very closely located to the centre of Stellenbosch with ample choice of bars and restaurants. You receive complimentary cherry in the rooms and generally the hotel provides a cosy, family atmosphere. Some of the house and the rooms is a bit old and needs refurbishing but nothing you can not tolerate.
All in all we would return.

We stayed at river manor boutique in early May as part of our honeymoon. We can not speak highly enough of the staff and the facilities! We were greeted so warmly and offered lots of advice and information about the local area, unfortunately my husband fell ill during our stay and the staff were so helpful with getting us to a doctor and seemed genuinely concerned for him, I really appreciated this. Our room was just gorgeous and probably our most comfortable bed of our travels. Breakfast was exceptional also with great variety. as the nights were cooler the stoves were lit in the communal areas which was lovely and cosy!we hope to come back some day!!
