River Manor nestles quietly under Stellenbosch's ancient oaks beside a river, just two mins walk from the town's historic centre. South Africa's second oldest settlement, it is an ideal base for exploring the Western Cape and its renowned Winelands.
Just 30 mins from Cape Town, its calm ambience will lull you - as will River Manor's pampering spa.
