River Manor

Built in the early 1900's, River Manor has been awarded National Monument Status and is a listed building, holding the history and sophisticated charm of a by-gone era. Set within a tranquil garden setting on the picturesque oak-lined "Avenue", it is fondly referred to as "Lover's Lane". 

Being a stone's throw away from the centre of historical Stellenbosch, River manor is two minutes stroll from many superb restaurants, galleries and museums, while for the more energetic, cycling and jogging paths are just across the river and lead into the countryside and Stellenbosch Mountain. After savouring the delights of the surrounding area, guests can return to the terrace to relax with views of Moederkerk Church and Simonsberg Mountain.
