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.

Wonderful Boutique Hotel

I stayed at the River Manor in late August 2019 on my journey through South Africa. From start to finish, it was a wonderful experience. The staff was incredibly attentive and the breakfasts every morning were a delight. I especially loved sitting by the fireplace every evening to review my itinerary for the following day. Also, my room was beautifully appointed and had an incredible view of the surrounding mountains. LOVED IT!

Fabulous Hotel and Staff

Cardiff, United Kingdom

This hotel is so beautiful, peaceful and the staff could not be more helpful. The hotel has a relaxed atmosphere, it feels like a join a family, even down to a resident cat. Two small pools although we were here in the winter so we did not get to use them. I would highly recommend this hotel, two minutes from the centre, too. Will definitely be coming back.
