River Manor is located on a tree-lined street, not far from the historic heart of Stellenbosch. The owners are part of a drive for Stellenbosch to regain its place as the premier town for visitors to the Winelands, and this means they will take great delight in helping you plan your time here to best effect. Whether its excellent recommendations of wine estates to visit, the best bars for jazz, or the latest up-and-coming restaurant, they’re right on top of the scene. But this is only part of the attraction of River Manor. Set over two Colonial-style buildings, separated by attractive flowers and plants, as well as a couple of small swimming pools, it is elegant and refined. In your spacious room, you’re likely to find the Colonial vibe continuing with classic trunks, luxuriant drapes and period furniture. Light and soft colours in the bedding and curtains keep the overall effect charming and stylish. And just to help you relax that bit more, there’s a wonderful spa as well. Definitely one of our favourite Winelands retreats.
