River Manor Boutique Hotel & Spa


A luxury boutique hotel in the heart of the pretty university town of Stellenbosch, composed of two beautifully-restored historic houses.

Small, private and supremely comfortable, each of the 18 rooms is spacious with air conditioning, Victorian-sized bathrooms and satellite TV, with the properties location making it an ideal base from which to explore the magnificent wine region.


Our Thoughts

An excellent value for money boutique hotel, it has the shops and restaurants of Stellenbosch within walking distance. After a day spent sampling the area’s wines, return to base and try one of the grape extract therapies available in the small spa.

  • Two swimming pools
  • Two lounges
  • Fireplace

River Manor is within a very short distance of town and offers you a rich selection of award winning restaurants: characterised by different type of cuisine, they all have in common the high standard quality of cuisine and – no need to say – wines. Having an excellent relationship with all of the most sough-after restaurants in the area, River Manor will please your expectations.
The hotel, however, has a premium selection of light meals served in the gardens or by the pool.

The hotel offers 2 room types, decorated in colonial style and warm shades combined with a personal taste to make your stay comfortable, luxurious and unique. Relaxing after an amazing day among the wine paths has never been so pleasant: you can choose between the luxurious Standard Rooms, with en-suite bathroom or Petite Rooms, smaller, chic and in French style.
