River Manor

Boutique hotel with 'Colonial charm with a touch of Africa'

tranquil haven of comfort and relaxation

The historic manor is set within secluded gardens, with two swimming pools and an exclusive spa.

River Manor comprises two historical houses set in a picturesque Oak-lined avenue, across from the Eerste River, and a mere two-minute stroll from the centre of Stellenbosch with its museums, street cafes, restaurants and galleries. Located very centrally it is within easy reach of Cape Town, Franscchoek, Paarl, Strand, Gordon’s Bay and Hermanus. It is just half an hour from the Cape Town International Airport.

Decorated in keeping with the theme 'Colonial charm with a touch of Africa', the guest house has wrap around patios and an upstairs terrace all combining to create an atmosphere of luxury, space and privacy where guests may enjoy personal service and hospitality. The 16 spacious en-suite rooms are all elegantly decorated with antiques, combining 'olde world' charm with modern conveniences.

A studio spa experience at the retreat combines the lavishness and pampering of a small and intimate studio spa with the natural wonders of the Cape Winelands. The spa products are all derived from the natural goodness of grape extract, affording guests the luxury of experiencing the Winelands in a relaxed and calm spa environment. The quaint town of Stellenbosch is home to the famous Stellenbosch University with many local and international students and academics. The town has the cultural heritage that compliments the active student population. Live music, theatre productions, art exhibitions and musical productions are the features of any visit to this Cape Winelands town.
