Traveller Reviews

  • River Manor in Stellenbosch was very nice – I was surprised to find that I have actually stayed there once before in the same room!

    Christina Lloyd, January 2016
  • The River Manor Guesthouse in Stellenbosch was also very accommodating. As with The Walden House, hot and cold breakfast every morning was a welcome aspect of our stay. The guesthouse was very well situated and walking to the local restaurants that were recommended, as well as around town at night, felt very safe and pleasant. Stellenbosch is a spectacular region and we really enjoyed our time there, we only wish that we had more of it.

    Rachel Nicks, March 2014
  • River Manor in Stellebosch was fantastic. Actually, they extended our expectations.

    Jaime Martens, September 2012
  • River Manor in Stellenbosch is in a great location, very convenient to walk to the center of town but off the main street so nice and quiet. We were happy with the service and everything there.
