This hotel was booked by my travel agent for two nights on our tour of the Garden Route. Having previously read comments on Trip Advisor, we were looking forward to our stay. We were underwhelmed by our experience. The town is a delight on a sunny day and ideal for touring vineyards (Surely one tour is enough?) But there was...

So nice, cosy and beautiful place to stay in Stellenbosch. We spent 5 days and truly enjoyed. Staff was really friendly, smily and helpful. Loved them all! The hotel is in walking distance from the old Stellenbosch center and there's enough parking places. Breakfast was excellent.

This beautiful hotel reminded us of old times. The surroundings are beautiful and so are the rooms. Very romantic. Walking distance to main street. Only had breakfast there and it was very good also. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Enjoyed our stay here, staff were friendly and good breakfast. Unique style of hotel, with a lot of historic charm. Nice gardens. Wifi was not available in our bedroom, we stayed in the old part of the house which was very noisy at night with road traffic.

This is a very clean nice hotel. It's within walking distance from the town so good location. Overall the hotel is nice. Staff were friendly and helpful but there was just a slight reserve in how they communicated. Stellenbosch is close by and a must visit/stay when travelling this wonderful country. I will definitely return but perhaps not to this...

My girlfriend and I visited this place, as our first stop on a 14 day Garden Route trip through South Africa. I don't really know what we were expecting, but this place went above and beyond, what we could have hoped for. They allowed us to check in early, got us settled in, booked a dinner reservation, and got us...

We arrived at river manor and the kind lady on reception helped us to try and book a wine tour. Unfortunately most were fully booked but she gave us a voucher to a chocolate and wine tasting and also recommended another lovely vineyard. When we returned she told us unfortunately the water tank in our room had burst so she...
