Traveller Reviews

River Manor Boutique Hotel and Spa

Christina Lloyd

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

Rachel Nicks

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.
