My girlfriend and I visited this place, as our first stop on a 14 day Garden Route trip through South Africa. I don't really know what we were expecting, but this place went above and beyond, what we could have hoped for. They allowed us to check in early, got us settled in, booked a dinner reservation, and got us...

We arrived at river manor and the kind lady on reception helped us to try and book a wine tour. Unfortunately most were fully booked but she gave us a voucher to a chocolate and wine tasting and also recommended another lovely vineyard. When we returned she told us unfortunately the water tank in our room had burst so she...

We stayed three nights and enjoyed the ambience, convenience and excellent staff. Even the cat was friendly. However, the place does need some investment to repair broken garden fences, renovate the aging sun loungers and generally spruce up paintwork. With the high occupancy rate I would have thought the owners could spend some money on renovation. If they need to...

Wonderful hotel, full of character, charm and excellent staff. If you want the personal touch with old style colonial feel and very attentive service, then this is the place to stay. Stellenbosch has great restaurants and a good atmosphere so all in all - excellent! UK guest

The manor itself is lovely, consisting of the main manor house and a smaller one side by side, with pleasant gardens and two smallish swimming pools. The breakfast room and breakfast offering is very nice with a varied choice of cold and hot foods. That's where the good bit ends. Our room, no.4, was the most uncomfortable room I've ever...

We loved it here. We stayed in rooms 16 and 17 in one of the main houses. The deco is traditional which we like but will not suit everybody. The Wi-Fi can be a challenge, it is only available in the public areas. The pool area is beautiful and there is a lovely veranda to sit out during the day...
