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.

 

  • Two minutes walk to Stellenbosch town
  • Embrace nature at nearby Jonkershoek Nature Reserve
  • Health and beauty spa and steamroom
  • Take a wine tour and enjoy tasting the finest vintages

We felt like guests in a private house! Beautiful place

Leeds, United Kingdom

We were staying here for 2 nights, our room was in the house and was large with a huge bathroom. The reception on arrival was warm and friendly, in fact the service throughout our stay was very good.We did have a couple of niggles, the handle on the shower door was only held on by one screw, surprised the cleaning staff didn't report it and a shelf in the wardrobe had a support missing and so was unusable. As a boutique hotel we did expect bathrobes however they were not offered. There were however extras in the bathroom such as a makeup mirror, black facecloth, plasters and cotton buds.The hotel is in a great location within walking distance (7 minutes) of shops, bars and restaurants and it felt very safe in the evening.The house itself is stunning inside with beautiful furnishings and flower arrangements. The weather was kind to us and we were able to have breakfast outside by one of the two pools. The staff gave me a lovely birthday surprise at breakfast when they appeared with a bunch of balloons, and glasses of sparkling wine and sang Happy Birthday, it made me quite emotional! For me a garden lover, the best thing about River Manor were the gardens. The simple colour palette of green and white, the type of plants and the arrangements in the flower beds were a credit to whoever did the gardens. Absolutely superb. If ever we were in Stellenbosch we would stay there again without a doubt.

Nice boutique hotel in the centre of Stellenbosch with very nice garden to relax

Weinstadt, Germany

We had two nights at the hotel in room no. 16. The hotel is located in a historic buldings in walking distance (safe) to the restaurants and shops in downtown. There are two pools, a lovely garden and several relaxing areas. The staff at the reception was very kind and helpful. The room was well kept, clean with a good bed. The room and especially the bathroom were a bit small (e.g. the towel rack is in the bedroom and not in the bathrrom). The breakfast was very good, but there was no information for individual orders (e.g. eggs, french toast...). Eggs and so on were served upon request. A menu on the table would be helpful.
