Beautiful views of the Orange River. Friendly professional assistance at the reception, makes you feel right at home. Our room was spacious and beautiful. The outside patio area is fantastic for your own private BBQ. Do not miss out on the delicious breakfast in the morning. We will certainly visit this beautiful place again.

After driving from Namaqualand, arriving at River Place Manor felt like a little Oasis by the river. With a beautiful garden at the margins of the river, a charming pool, all we wanted to do was relaxed. The rooms were very comfortable overlooking the river. Staff friendly and helpful, and breakfast just perfect at the varanda.

It is located at one of the best locations along the river. Our kids have a fabulous time there. The room is spacious, and the ground provides ample space for the kids to play. Wish we could try the braai on the pontoon next time. That will be a unique experience.

Fantastic setting overlooking the River. Luxurious room with a small kitchenette, comfortable bed and great terrace. It would have been perfect but we were there on Saturday 26 Dec. The town was pretty much closed down, including the hotel restaurant. Luckily the staff at reception were able to suggest a suitable option, albeit that it meant we had to drive there when all we wanted to do was relax after a long drive from Cape Town. Apparently the restaurant isn't open on weekends except for breakfast.
