The best hotel for a mini-vacation in Stellenbosch

Recently I spent the most amazing and relaxing 6 days at the River Manor boutique. This hotel is situated in the heart of Stellenbosch, with a beautifully landscaped garden overlooking the Eerste River. It is the perfect hotel for a mini getaway with a partner or a friend, who is looking to be in the city without feeling like they are in the city.

Upon arrival, we were greeted by a friendly staff member who helped us with our luggage and help check us in, we did a covid screening and sanitized our hands then did a temperature check.

The hotel has 2 manor houses and some cottages they are equipped with 18 rooms, 6 of them with bathtubs, 12 with just showers, they have 14 staff members who absolutely love their job and are really helpful and friendly. we had a room that was facing the pool and the main manor, it really felt like I was not in South Africa, and this is the feeling I love when I go for a vacation in the city.

The hotel is also situated a walking distance of all the restaurants which is great as you can just walk to have your dinner, they also offer dinner if you want to dine at the hotel. If you love hiking like me, you will be pleased to know that they are situated close to a hiking trail a few meters away. Make sure you pack your hiking gear as well:)

One other aspect I loved about our stay was that every night when we got back our bed would be prepared with the duvet cover opened waiting for us to jump in, and also with new bottles of water by our bedside The bed was very comfortable with very smooth and soft linen so its safe to say I slept like a baby every night:)If you are a breakfast fan like me you will love it here!! their breakfast was so fresh and yummy, their fruits were also fresh, breakfast time was my favorite part of the day, hahaha

I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love small hotels, their food is not mass-produced, the food always tastes great, and you almost feel like you are part of their ‘family’ because of the great service you receive from everyone, even the other guests are very friendly.

If you love taking pictures as I do, you will love this hotel, it is beautiful and picturesque, a little heaven to capture beautiful moments.

I will definitely come back again as I was extremely impressed and happy with everything. A cute oasis in the heart of the city, that is hard to find. Thank you to Samantha and her team for an incredible hospitality.
