Winelands & Whale Coast

Rating: Deluxe    

River Manor overview

River Manor Boutique Hotel & Spa is an intimate hotel with just 18 rooms but a wide range of facilities including lovely gardens, relaxing lounges, two swimming pools and a studio spa. It is a great base from which to explore the winelands and local attractions. The friendly staff are on hand to advise of possible excursions and help guests make the most of their stay.

There are superior, standard and petite rooms, all of which have ensuite bath or shower. All rooms are well equipped with air conditioning, ceiling fans, tea and coffee trays, televsion, 'phone and safe. Guests are welcome to stroll through the gardens and can also enjoy light meals, snacks and drinks here or by one of the pools. The tranquil setting is a pertect antidote to a busy morning's sightseeing. Indoors guests can mingle and chat in the lounge or browse through a book in the library.

The hotel serves a daily breakfast in the garden and is just a few minutes walk from the centre of Stellenbosch with its many restaurants, cafes and bars, so there are many options for dining out. Stellenbosch also offers shops and art galleries, music venues and theatres. It has a thriving cultural life, as you'd expect of university city. All the attractions of the winelands can be enjoyed from River Manor including vineyards, fabulous restaurants, excellent hiking and tradtional villages.

River Manor's spa offers treatments in the best French traditions of revitalisation and invigoration. It uses many products derived from the natural goodness of local grape extract. Enjoying treatments here is another way to experience the Winelands! Trained therapists are available to advise on treatments and plan personalised programmes undertaken in a relaxed environment.

Hannah Black, Tribes

"River Manor is a lovely, homely country house. It's in a fantastic location so it's really easy to walk to local eateries and explore Stellenbosch. It's beautifully presented and furnished and I felt it was one of the nicest places you could stay in the area."

Sarah Jane
"We were upgraded from the garden room to the house and it made a great deal of difference to our enjoyment of our stay. The town was within easy walking distance and very enjoyable to spend time in. We went on a wine tour suggested by the hotel and it was a lovely way to see the countryside and taste the local wines."
