River Manor Boutique Hotel

A peaceful retreat in the midst of the Winelands

A stylishly restored hotel in the leafy heart of historic Stellenbosch, River Manor Boutique Hotel & Spa is just two minutes stroll away from the town's cosmopolitan centre and close to many boutiques, galleries, museums, and wining and dining opportunities.

Nestled among ancient oak trees on the banks of the Eerste River, the River Manor is an ideal base for exploring the Cape Winelands. Providing a sense of peace and tranquillity, lush gardens surround the hotel's two swimming pools; rooms are airy and elegant, and you can indulge yourself with a massage or treatment from the spa menu at this homely and refined hotel. 

The hotel serves breakfast and light snacks but encourages you to discover all that Stellenbosch and the wider Western Cape has to offer – we recommend you venture to Paarl or Franschhoek as part of your itinerary.

Way surpassed expectation!

Greater Johannesburg, South Africa

Such an awesome experience to visit an establishment booked online with huge expections, and actually have it exceed what was envisaged! All I can say is WOW! The staff are incredible, the place is immaculate and attention to every fine detail in place. I travel to Stellenbosch fairly regularly and this will be my 'go to' place moving forward. Can't wait to be back. Highly highly HIGHLY recommended!

Caring and helpful staff and a stylish hotel

Nieuil, France

Beautifully presented hotel with an old colonial feel to it. Excellent breakfast with a great selection/choice. Staff bent over backwards to advise and arrange restaurant bookings with recommendations. Very close to the old town with an easy walk to the restaurants and shops. Two small swimming pools to relax by with nice sunbeds. Large bedroom with a huge bathroom.
